Assemblies of God (AOG)

As a result of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the turn of the 20th century, thousands of Christians were impacted by the power of God’s Spirit and the Pentecostal Church was ignited. A number of Pentecostal networks were established between 1912 and 1920.


In Birmingham in 1924 the British Assemblies of God (AOG) came into being. From those early days, leaders and churches worked together for the expansion of the Kingdom of God.

The early leaders of AOG gave the wider Church much of its teaching on Pentecostal doctrine through writing books and travelling. Donald Gee and Howard Carter were two who travelled the world to tell people about the new understanding of the Holy Spirit’s activity in the Church.

The Movement grew and many different departments were added to its ministry, reflecting our desire to plant churches and assist the growth of our people in the things of God.


Today Assemblies of God has over 1,000 leaders and more than 600 churches with many specialised departments ministering at home and abroad, making us one of the largest Pentecostal denominations in our country.

Assemblies of God UK are members of the Assemblies of God World Fellowship, The Evangelical Alliance, Free Council of Churches and the World Pentecostal Fellowship

 

Evangelical Alliance

The Evangelical Alliance was founded in 1846 and is the oldest alliance of evangelical Christians in the world.

 

The Alliance is the largest body serving evangelical Christians in the UK, and has a membership including denominations, churches, organisations and individuals. In its formative years the Alliance particularly stood for the victims of religious persecution and enabled evangelicals from different denominations to work together.

As part of a movement ‘uniting to change society’ the Alliance promotes unity and truth, acts as an evangelical voice to the state, society and the wider church, and works collaboratively with Alliance members and other evangelicals, to present Christ credibly as good news for spiritual and social transformation.

 

The Alliance speaks on behalf of its members and represents evangelical concerns to Government, the National Assemblies, the media and key decision-makers. In resourcing its members and encouraging Christians to fully engage in their communities as responsible citizens, the Alliance strives to make evangelical truths publicly accessible.
