We are part of the Cooperative Fellowship of the Assemblies of God; which in truth is often mistaken for a denomination.
That is why the term “Cooperative Fellowship” is so important.
This term focuses attention and priority on the local assembly rather than on the national organization. The interests and well-being of the local church are valued above a religious organization. This was intended to prevent the local church’s loss of self-determination under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. At the same time, the term recognizes the need for cooperation in fulfilling common purposes, which includes the submission to doctrinal unity and moral purity.
The Assemblies of God was founded in 1914 in Hot Springs, Arkansas with 300 people at the founding convention. Today there are 13,004 churches in the U.S. with over 3 million members and adherents. There are more than 69 million Assemblies of God members worldwide, making the Assemblies of God the largest Pentecostal fellowship in the world.
