The Assemblies of God was founded as a result of a religious revival that swept around the world in the early 1900's.
Doctrinally, the church emphasizes personal salvation, water baptism, divine healing, the baptism of the Holy Spirit accompanied by the evidence of speaking in tongues, and the pre-millennial second coming of Jesus Christ. The Bible is recognized as the inspired word of God and provides the rule for faith and practice.
