5 Beliefs That Set the Assemblies of God Apart From Other Protestant Christians

By    |   Thursday, 02 April 2015 10:24 AM EDT

The largest Pentecostal Fellowship has over 67 million members around the world, and is called The Assemblies of God. Protestant Christians and Assemblies of God followers have a few differences in their beliefs.

The Assemblies of God follow the teachings of Charles Parham and the church was organized in April 1914, after initial meetings held in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Assemblies of God churches also emphasize evangelism and missions to spread their beliefs.

Here are five beliefs that set the Assemblies of God apart from other Protestant Christians:

1. The Assemblies of God followers believe in miraculous healing through the power of the Holy Spirit. They believe their faith in God will save and heal disease or physical ailments, and believers are taught to pray for health and healing and to leave the outcome in God's hands. Some preachers ordained in the Assemblies of God portray themselves as having the ability to heal others through special avenues of God's healing.

2. Assemblies of God followers tend to dress differently and preach Holiness more than Protestant Christians. They emphasize the work of the Holy Spirit by speaking in tongues during public worship. Having the ability to speak in tongues is often regarded as a sign an individual has been baptized by the Holy Spirit, and in some Pentecostal churches, it is a requirement for full discipleship.

3. The World Assemblies of God Fellowship encourages and assists others to hear and respond to the gospel. They look to pursue the fulfillment of the Lord's word and evangelize people who have lost their way in the shortest period of time.

4. Assembly of God followers believe people can fall from grace due to sins and that there is a need for personal repentance and faith in Jesus dying for our sins as the cornerstone of salvation. Calvinist Protestants, on the other hand, believe that God chooses who will be saved and who will not be saved before their creation.

5. Some Protestants believe Satan is a real and evil being, while others see "Satan" as a metaphor for evil wrongdoings. Followers of the Assembly of God believe Satan is a reality, and sinners will be eternally judged by Satan.
