National Office Lobby Paintings
Two years after the church’s founding, the pioneers of the Assemblies of God adopted 16 beliefs for the Fellowship. This "Statement of Fundamental Truths" remains virtually unchanged. Four of these beliefs are considered the major tenets of the Fellowship and are portrayed in the artwork of Ron DiCianni in the lobby of the Assemblies of God National Office in Springfield, MO.
Prints available — Smaller prints of the lobby paintings are available for purchase through the Gospel Publishing House. Visit www.webelieveart.com or call 1-800-641-4310.

Salvation Through Jesus Christ
Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life. (John 3:3, 16, 17; Romans 10:13; Ephesians 2:8, 9)
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry. (Acts 1:8; 2:4; 17, 18, 38, 39)
Divine Healing for the Sick
Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers. (James 5:14-16)
The Second Coming of Christ
The second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on earth for one thousand years. (1 Thessalonians 4:14-16; 1 Corinthians 15:51, 52)
