The District Council of the Assemblies of God of South Carolina, one of 64 District Councils nationwide, was incorporated on October 19, 1953, in Georgetown, South Carolina. Before it became a distinct, geographical district, it was part of what was then the Georgia-South Carolina District of the Assemblies of God.

Today, the South Carolina Assemblies of God consists of over 80 churches. One primary emphasis is strengthening our churches and welcoming new churches plants. Another principle emphasis is world evangelization by making disciples of all nations. For this reason, the District Council is committed to raising up and sending forth missionaries to the United States and people groups around the globe.

 5 Core Values of the Assemblies of God:


Passionately proclaim by word and deed, at home and abroad, Jesus as Savior, Baptizer in the Spirit, Healer, and Soon Coming King


Strategically invest in the next generation


Vigorously plant new churches


We, the General Council, skillfully resource the fellowship


Fervently pray for God’s favor and blessing as we serve Him with pure hearts and noble purpose
