A Statement from Bishop Charles H. Ellis III concerning the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia

After witnessing the sickening satanic acts of racial violence perpetrated by various white supremacist groups in Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend, the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Inc. goes on record condemning in the strongest terms possible these deplorable acts.

While we feel blessed to worship in a country which guarantees us "Freedom of Speech and Religion," we are also spiritually bound to stand against all freedoms used to intimidate and invoke fear, harm and evil upon another race of people. We call on all leaders of this country to unite against these acts of terrorism that we might truly live up to our pledge and become "one nation under God."

Our prayers are with the family of Heather Heyer who was murdered as well as the numerous citizens seriously injured during this blatant act of bigotry and hatred.

 

AOH Condolence

IN HONOR OF THE LIFE OF BISHOP JOHN H. MATHEWS
PRESIDING BISHOP, APOSTOLIC OVERCOMING HOLY CHURCH OF GOD

The Pentecostal Assemblies of the World joins in mourning the loss of Apostolic Overcoming Holy Church of God Presiding Bishop John H. Mathews, one of our great Apostolic fathers.

While we share in the loss of this giant of the faith; we also celebrate the life and ministry of Bishop Mathews, rejoicing in his transition to Heavenly reward.

The P.A.W. was blessed to have Bishop Mathews preach at our Spring Executive Bishops Board Meeting in March of this year. That service was akin to the fellowship that A.O.H. founder, Bishop W. T. Phillips had with the P.A.W. when he spoke to our Convention in 1934 in Louisville, Kentucky; and the continued camaraderie that members of our organizations have shared in subsequent years.

Psalms 116:15 tells us that “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.”

As Presiding Bishop of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, I applaud the leadership that Bishop Mathews exemplified, honor the effectiveness of his witness of Jesus Christ, and pray God’s continued blessings upon the Apostolic Overcoming Holy Church of God.

 

Scam Alert

Please do NOT comply with any phone or email request for wire transfers, personal or banking information from anyone stating an emergency for themselves (or in proxy for someone else) or claiming to be a P.A.W. Bishop or Pastor.

Verify the identity of the caller by obtaining their number for a callback; or better yet, call P.A.W. Headquarters immediately. Our staff can help coordinate efforts toward making wise choices if you encounter these types of requests that require an immediate response.

Sometimes, taking just a few minutes can squash a potential scam. The word of God declares in 1 Peter 5: 8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour…”.

TIP: Remember, you always have the choice to ignore the request or simply hang up. It’s better to have paused for verification; rather than kindness being abused.

YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS READING THIS WELL-DOCUMENTED HISTORIC ARTICLE BY MINISTER TIMOTHY MOORE

P.A.W. IN THE MODERN PENTECOSTAL MOVEMENT


By Timothy Moore

According to numerous reliable historical sources, the origins of the PAW are in Los Angeles in late 1906, with participants in the famed Azusa Street Revival. Records document a meeting there in 1907 that selected Rev. William Pendleton as its first Chairman.

In 1912, the PAW moved its headquarters from L.A. to 773 Third Street in Portland (OR), a fact referenced in statements made in 1913 by organizers of the Assemblies of God. PAW headquarters remained in Portland until 1919, when it was moved to Indianapolis. E.W. Doak, G.T. Haywood, and D.C.O. Opperman signed the incorporation papers in Indiana and established headquarters there at 1765 Boulevard Avenue.

Early Leadership

The PAW had five (5) chief officers prior to the election of its first Presiding Bishop in 1925. These early chief officers had the titles Chairman or General Superintendent.

In 1925, the structure was changed to an episcopal-styled leadership that featured Bishops. The change was in response to a major split in 1924.

Initial PAW chief executives were:

  • William Pendleton ​- ​​1907
  • Sister Hopkins – ​​1908-1912​
  • Stephen Jacob Jackson Frazee – 1912-1918​
  • Edward Wesley Doak ​​-1918-1924​
  • William Mulford ​​-1924​
  • Garfield T. Haywood -1925-1931 ​(start of the era of Bishops)
