What is the Assemblies of God of Ceylon? (AG)

Posted: May 5, 2017 in Excerpt from Newsletters

The Assemblies of God primarily consists of Pastors, Churches and Members of each Congregation. We are a movement that gathers for fellowship, corporate worship, and passionate sharing of the gospel.  

The Executive Presbytery of the Assemblies of God in Sri Lanka desires to see every aspect of this movement developed and advanced in the coming year.

We call every Member and Church to partner in establishing God’s Kingdom by understanding the various functions and upholding the ministry of the Assemblies of God of Ceylon.

Pastors: Enrichment and Development

‘And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers…..  for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ’ Ephesians 4:11-13

Pastors and Leaders are the most vital part of our movement as they are called to serve in equipping every believer to fulfill Christ’s purpose on earth. The AG therefore plans to focus on Pastoral Enrichment, Leadership Development and Pastoral Care.

Churches:  Growth and Development

The Church is called to represent Christ on earth. Equipping the church to fulfill this divine mandate therefore becomes an important priority. Equipping the church for Evangelism and Discipleship is the mandate given to the church in the great commission. Churches must also focus on growth and development by seeking to upgrade their standards and widen their outreach.

Organization: Development

AG is a fellowship of all Churches who subscribe to the Biblical Fundamental truths.

We consider the Bible to be the Word of God, which is the only authority and the foundation for all faith and practice.

The council of the Assemblies of God of Ceylon comprises of all ministers of the local churches. The national leadership is known as the Executive Presbytery headed by the General Superintendent. Our ministries are further led by 12 geographical Regional Councils each headed by a Presbyter.

We seek to transform our communities and the nation with our spiritual and moral influence. This, we believe, is our mandate and reason for existence in this land.
