Explore Assemblies of God History
Every year, thousands of visitors to the Assemblies of God national office in Springfield, Missouri, spend time in the Flower Pentecostal Heritage Center (FPHC) museum, which focuses on the history of the Assemblies of God USA.
First-time visitors are often surprised by C. M. Ward’s voice, activated by a motion sensor, as it booms out of his life-cast figure. He gives an altar call at the Revivaltime radio exhibit, as the choir sings a stirring rendition of Ira Stanphill’s “Room at the Cross.”
Exhibits showcasing the Azusa Street revival, World Missions, U.S. Missions, women in ministry, and other themes can occupy visitors for an hour or more. The final exhibit is a recreated storefront church with wooden benches, a pot-bellied stove, Sunday School attendance board, an upright piano, and a pump organ. A room featuring rotating exhibits highlights additional ministries and themes.
Experiencing the 3,000-square-foot FPHC museum rekindles precious memories for those who lived the history, and it provides younger generations with an invaluable introduction to the heritage and testimony of early Pentecostals.
