My goal for this page is to use it almost like a blog. Sometimes I will come here and write down some of my thoughts and inspirations and other times I will come and get on my "soap box" and do a little preaching. For now I will say thanks for checking us out. If you have any questions or would like to contact us, you can e-mail us at MiddleRiverAG@verizon.net.
Thanks for reading,
Pastor Mike Powis
Check this out. I found this great website to help answer questions about life. The videos are from some of the leading authorities on marriage, relationships, family, money, career and faith. Now, just because I posted a link on our site, doesn't mean that I agree with everything they say, but from what I saw this is a great site. Click on the iQuestions banner below.
How is my local church affiliated with the Assemblies of God?
Within the fellowship of the Assemblies of God there are two classifications of churches - General Council affiliated churches and district affiliated churches. General Council affiliated churches enjoy full autonomy, having developed to the point of where they are self-governing and self-supporting. These fundamental principles have been catalysts for growth in the Fellowship. District affiliated churches are those which have not yet developed to the point where they qualify for full autonomy. All assemblies are required to adhere to the Statement of Fundamental Truths and a biblical pattern of conduct. Learn More
What distinguishes the Assemblies of God from other Christian groups?
The Assemblies of God is an evangelic protestant fellowship that believes God exists in three persons -- the Father, Son (Jesus), and Holy Spirit. The most definitive identification of the Assemblies of God is Pentecostal. Just as it was founded in 1914, the Fellowship remains a full gospel church—one where the fullness of the Holy Spirit is welcomed, nurtured, and taught. This includes speaking in tongues as the initial evidence of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Other manifestations of the Holy Spirit embraced by the church include: messages in tongues with interpretations, prophecies, word of knowledge, and the complete gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit as indicated in the Bible. Among Pentecostal churches—the Assemblies of God is largest worldwide with over 52 million constituents.
