iVALUE is a special emphasis on the ‘Four Core Beliefs’ of the Assemblies of God: Salvation, Baptism in the Holy Spirit, Divine Healingand the Second Coming of Christ.
Two years after its founding, the AG established 16 doctrines as a standard to reach, preach and teach its people. These doctrines became our Statement of Fundamental Truths. Four of these truths are considered our core beliefs due to the key role they play in reaching the lost and building the believer and the church both now and for the future. “The term iVALUE is more than a name. It’s truly the way I feel about these ever-so-important truths. I want to embrace and value them personally in my heart and to flesh them out as priorities in my life. Won’t you join me in reaching and teaching those in your church and community? Together we can impact the world and change lives for eternity.”
— George O. Wood, general superintendent

… In the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as an experience following salvation, accompanied by speaking in tongues according toActs 2:4, that empowers believers for witness and effective service.
