Assemblies of God is a Pentecostal denomination that has been serving the people of Great Britain since 1924. We aim to serve the people of Great Britain through our network of over 500 local churches. These churches may vary in style and size, but all are committed to connecting people to Jesus through a variety of ministries. Many have comprehensive children's, youth and young adults' ministries as well as teaching, training and community ministries. As a movement, we want to "Give every man, woman and child the opportunity of understanding the gospel and to provide a church where they can grow in ministry for the glory of God."

The Evangelical Christian Church (Assemblies of God) in Italy (ADI) is a direct offshoot of an awakening, born simultaneously and independently in the beginning of the last century in several countries of the world. In this mighty awakening, Christians of various denominations gathered in search of power from on high, and received the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the manifestation of “glossolalia,” or speaking in other tongues, which occurred on the day of Pentecost as recorded in the Bible.
Brother Loria was elected in 2007 and is the third president of the largest Evangelical group in Italy. Assemblee di Dio in Italia has 56,000 regular members, 16,000 Sunday School members, and 28,000 adherents for a total of 100,000 ADI evangelicals. Assemblee di Dio in Italia has 537 pastors and 1,093 churches. They sponsor children in many countries, operate a radio ministry, summer camps, and the Italian Bible Institute, serve in nursing homes, gypsy churches, and orphanages, and minister to abused children.

The Liberia Assemblies of God has approximately 400 churches, 75,000 adherents and 300 trained pastors. The church currently operates four active ministerial training institutions: one Bible college and three Bible institutes. The fourth Bible institute is currently undergoing renovation after being damaged by the civil war.
This church was founded by American and Canadian Pentecostal missionaries who first arrived in Liberia on Christmas day 1908, just two years after the Azusa Street revival in Los Angeles, USA. They were the first to take the gospel into the hinterlands of Liberia. After six years of their evangelism and church planting efforts in Southeastern Liberia, the Assemblies of God organization was established in the USA in 1914. Recognizing the commonality of belief and practice, the churches planted in Liberia were annexed to the Assemblies of God. The Liberia Assemblies of God is the largest Pentecostal group in Liberia, a country of 3.5 million people.
Currently the church has one home missionary couple. The couple has planted one church with five preaching points among the unreached people in northern Liberia.
