General Council Values

The 53rd General Council of the Assemblies of God is just around the corner (Aug. 3-7 in Orlando, Fla.). Delegates and visitors will be convening from all over the nation — as well as some from overseas — for this special time together. A fresh format will highlight the numerous activities.

Our general superintendent, Dr. George O. Wood, and the entire Executive Leadership Team have been focusing on five very important values for our Fellowship. These core values will permeate everything that happens at Orlando.

The Pentecostal Evangel has been featuring articles that emphasize these values for some time now. We thought that General Council would be the ideal time for additional emphasis. You will find in these pages five special features, each one clearly demonstrating one of the core values. Begin reading the conversation with Dr. Wood on page 6, where each value is discussed.

You may have noticed something else about this issue. Along with the fresh approach to Council, we have decided to roll out a fresh look for the magazine. Along with the new logo, you will begin to see other changes in coming weeks.

What will not change is the nature or quality of the content. Our mission has remained unchanged since the magazine was founded in 1913, one year before the first General Council of the AG: “To fulfill the threefold mission of the church; to propagate the gospel of Jesus Christ; to give proper emphasis to Pentecostal distinctives, including the baptism in the Holy Spirit and its desired effects in the lives of believers; and to strengthen the Fellowship.”

This mission is still relevant nearly a century after the first issue rolled off the press.
