A Fellowship of over 700 Christian Ministers united in spiritual fellowship with over 450 self-governed Churches, IAOGI | CANADA provides credentials for Pastors and Missionaries in all 10 Provinces and Territories. We were born out of revival and are Pentecostal in doctrine and practice. IAOGI | CANADA is affiliated with the Independent Assemblies of God International and exists as a sovereign organization in Canada. Currently, we represent the third largest Evangelical Fellowship in the country.


IAOGI | CANADA was birthed in the year 1918 as the Scandinavian Assemblies of God in the United States of America, Canada and Foreign Lands.

It existed under this name from 1918 to 1935. In 1935 at an annual convention in Minneapolis Minnesota, the Scandinavian Assemblies of God merged with a group called the Independent Pentecostal Churches. The name of the this new fellowship was, and to this day remains, the Independent Assemblies of God International.

The Vision

The uniqueness of IAOGI | CANADA is its' conviction of the sovereignty of the local church.

We are eager for Mighty Holy Spirit to have an instrument which is flexible in the "hands of our Lord" during this critical time of history. We envision a continued outpouring of the Spirit of God, breathing life and resurrection into His own body. It is imperative that ministers and churches are able to follow through on the mandate given by God without interference from an ecclesiastical hierarchy. For this we have been born!

Our Goals

As one Fellowship in the many membered body of Christ, IAOGI | CANADA seeks to serve others throughout the nations of the world.

By God's grace we will be obedient to:

*Be an integral part of the continued outpouring of His Holy Spirit
*Help fulfill the great commission - Matthew 28:19,20
*Establish many new churches worldwide
*Support missions and missionaries
*Found a Bible College and Training Institute
*Provide accredited correspondence courses

World Outreach

God has raised IAOGI | CANADA to be an Apostolic ministry.

We have churches and ministries throughout America, Africa, Canada, Cuba, Guatemala, India, Mexico, Nagaland, Philippines and Romania. Much of our overseas ministry is done by nationals under the direction of National Overseers. In these explosive times we presently have calls and invitations to build and assist in many other countries.
