Our History

 

From 300 people in 1914, the Assemblies of God has come a long way since this revival movement started in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Now with more than 12,792 churches and 3 million adherents in the U.S., along with more than 67 million members worldwide, the Assemblies of God has grown to become the world’s largest Pentecostal denomination.

 

The Hawaii District of the Assemblies of God is one of the 61 districts in the United States and consists of a cooperative fellowship of over 70 churches spread across O’ahu, Kaua’i, the Big Island, Mau’i, and Lana’i.
