Whiting Assembly of God Upgraded to General Council Affiliated Status . . .
On Sunday, March 12, 2017 the church status for Whiting Assembly of God was upgraded from District Affiliated to General Council Affiliated. The former status is defined as a local congregation which has been brought into being as a result of a church planting and is still in a formative state in need of maturing.
The latter status is defined as a congregation which has matured to accept responsibility to self-govern and take full financial responsibility for the maintenance of scriptural order. We as a church body, for many years have been qualified for this upgrade. New Jersey District Council of the Assembly of God officially completed this requirement to become General Council status within the fellowship with a church meeting Sunday afternoon conducted by Rev. Richard Leksell who is on staff at the District office.
Nothing changes as to the functionality, responsibilities, both spiritual and financial of the church.
