Welcome to our family
If this is your first visit to an Assemblies of God church, let me
join with the pastor and congregation and extend to you a hearty welcome.
You have honored us by coming, and we thank you so very much for worshipping
will not attend an Assemblies of God church long before you learn we
love families. Whatever your situation whether you belong to
a large family unit or are single, a single parent or widowed
you are welcome into the Assemblies of God family, part of the great
family of God. There is a place for you and every member of your family
whether in Sunday school, childrens church, the choir,
orchestra, womens and mens ministries, youth activities
the list goes on. We hope you will choose to find out more about
all the opportunities offered and become an integral part of the church.
As you read this issue of the Pentecostal Evangel, the official voice
of the Assemblies of God, you will learn a lot about our Fellowship
its history, programs, doctrines, patterns of worship and more.
In addition, I am sure the pastor, staff and others in the congregation
will be happy to help you learn about the church you are attending today.
Most important, we want you and your family to feel welcome and enjoy
your time of worship and fellowship.
While becoming part of a church is important, belonging to an Assemblies
of God church or any other group does not guarantee salvation and inheritance
of eternal life with Jesus Christ. There is only one way to be certain
of your eternal destiny by accepting Jesus Christ, the Head of
the Church, as your Lord and Savior. If you have not made that commitment,
I hope and pray you will do so today. It is the most important decision
you will ever make. The church family that surrounds you will be happy
to explain the way of salvation and pray with you.
Thank you again for visiting. We are so pleased you have joined with
us for this time of worship. We hope you will come back. May Gods
love and blessing enrich you deeply in the days ahead.
Thomas E. Trask
General Superintendent, Assemblies of God
