Is the Assembly of God denomination considered represented by one of the Base Packages? Since I know so little about them, I don’t know if they’re considerd part of one of these sets or not.

AOG might fit in the Pentecostal & Charismatic ballpark.

I wondered, but I didn't just want to assume. Thanks

The Pentecostal/Charismatic package has traditionally served the AOG users. I wouldn't take what's in the packages as aligning with the denomination. I kind of groan at the wonky nature of stuff that wafts through the packages in this category (but it's not limited to this one either!).

Good to know. I don't want to just make assumptions, so that's why I started the thread. I find that these different base packages help me in an ecumenical sense of understanding what other traditions actually believe instead of relying on inaccurate rumors of what they believe.

(I'm hoping I haven't said anything cluelessly offensive)

The Pentecostal/ Charismatic package is probably the "wonkiest' of all targeted base packages as far as doctrinal beliefs go.  My own "denomination" fits in that category, but I can tell you that there is much in those packages that we would not necessarily endorse. I understand what Logos is doing, but I would be hesitant to use that package as a way of determining the beliefs of the traditions represented in that package.  AOG would be in that package, but I'm positive that not all in that package would represent the AOG mindset.

Nor is there one "AOG mindset" (as in many of the packages that reflect de-centralized polity)

Well, it’s all educational for me. AOG is probably the largest denomination in my area, but I know little about them in general. I figure it would be useful to learn what they hold. But if it’s something that varies, I might be approaching it in the wrong way.

You would probably have a better understanding by visiting our National Headquarters website: www.ag.org the biggest thing that our denomination is wrapped around are our 16 Fundamental Truths, which can be found here: www.ag.org/Beliefs/Statement-of-Fundamental-Truths I hope this will help you. By the way, The Pentacostal & Charismatic packages are typically what we would closely fall into; however, I have basically built up my library first by buying the Standard packages, I am currently up to Gold, and then buying the the base packages in other denominations. I currently am only on Bronze in the Pentacostal & Charismatic as well as in the Reformed. I also have Starter in Orthodox, Methodist & Wesleyan, Messianic Jewish, Lutheran, & Baptist. My current Library is just over 4,300 resources.

I graduated from Central Bible College, the primary Assemblies of God ministerial college at the time, in the late 80s.  For only $10.99 this collection would give you a great overview of what the denomination believes and practices.

As for the Pentecostal/Charismatic package in Logos?  I don’t think it represents the A/G all that much. There are good books in it, but there are also a lot of things that I would disavow completely as false doctrine. There is a very wide swath of doctrinal representation in that package. And for my two cents, not nearly enough of it reflects traditional, conservative Pentecostal theology.

Glad to help. It’s definitely worth it just for the position papers alone.  If you read the papers on “Apostles and Prophets“; “Can a born-again Christian be demon possessed?”; “Divine Healing”; “End time revival“; and “The believer and Positive Confession“ you will see why I say the P/C package has many resources that do not line up with the Assemblies of God, or traditional conservative Pentecostalism.

Wait, it’s an unmentioned Bronze resources? Or did I misinterpret it?

How do you find that out when it’s not listed as being in a package?

I have that BP, but the AG series is not in my library. If I can get this in a cheap BP, I would like to add it.

Perhaps I should correct the sentence: I went ahead and bought it! I also bought the cheapest Bronze Base Package ever (0.21cents!!!).

So yeah, the resource is not included in any base package, but it’s still cheap 👍😁👌

Sorry for the confusion!
