Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
Matthew 28:19-20 (New International Version, ©2011)
This directive from the Lord sends us into the entire world to preach the gospel and to show the love of Christ in every aspect of our lives. The early founders of the Assemblies of God knew of the importance of worldwide evangelism and missions. It is one of the founding principles and purpose for our Pentecostal fellowship.
Today at Sumiton First Assembly we believe with all our hearts just as the early leaders of the church (in Acts) and the founders of the AG that spreading the gospel is priority.
We as a church follow the directive of the Lord by:
Monthly support of our missionaries
Support of our missionaries through Speed the Light and BGMC
Support of home missions such as Teen Challenge
MAPS Construction teams
Sending of those who are called to the feild
Going into the world with mission trips
With prayer and intercession for missionaries and people around the world. We join together with those in the field that the lost will be saved, the captives set free, the sick shall be healed and the hurting shall be comforted.
We at Sumiton First Assembly encourage you to also go into your own mission field, wherever it may be. Tell someone about Jesus and show His Love through your actions.
Missionaries on the Move
Why do people become missionaries and go live in another country? What are their thoughts as they get ready to depart for the mission field? We caught up with three new missionary couples and a single new missionary during the recent Missionary Training and Renewal and posed these questions.
For the past six years I have had the privilege of posting articles, stories and news from our missionaries on this AG World Missions website. Later, we started daily postings on AGWM Facebook and Twitter that are now being viewed by thousands of people a day. Reading your comments has been fun and heartwarming.
A New Season
What a joy it has been for the past 21 years to serve the Lord in Assemblies of God World Missions. I have so appreciated interacting with missionaries, speaking with pastors and church personnel, and developing friendships among the great people who work here at the National Leadership and Resource Center.

Beyond – the Unreached Peoples Imperative
Ninety years ago our missionary leadership resolved to “seek out the neglected regions where the gospel has not yet been preached.” This has always been a driving motivation in our missionary enterprise. When God opens doors, we want to be able to go through them immediately.

The greatest killers in Africa today don’t use guns or violence as weapons.
