This "Statement of Fundamental Truths" contains the 16 doctrines of the Assemblies
of God. These are non-negotiable tenets of faith that all Assemblies of God churches
adhere to. Four of these, Salvation, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, Divine Healing,
and the Second Coming of Christ are considered Cardinal Doctrines which are essential
to the church's core mission of reaching the world for Christ.
The Bible is our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. This Statement of Fundamental
Truths is intended simply as a basis of fellowship among us (i.e., that we all speak
the same thing, 1 Corinthians 1:10 [KJV/NIV]; Acts 2:42 [KJV/NIV]). The phraseology
employed in this Statement is not inspired nor contended for, but the truth set forth
is held to be essential to a full-gospel ministry. No claim is made that it covers
all Biblical truth, only that it covers our need as to these fundamental doctrines.
