In 1947 the Assemblies of God of Ceylon was incorporated under Ordinance 53 in the legislature of Ceylon, an year prior to the independence of the Nation. It continued to grow over the decades under indigenous leadership, spreading to all Provinces of the Island.  It celebrated the centenary year in 2014.

Today, the Assemblies of God of Ceylon has a multi-faceted ministry with a caring ministry to the people of our nation, in all three languages.
