Dramatic church growth has taken place in this region as the Holy Spirit ignites a passion for the lost among believers.

The Assemblies of God in Latin America Caribbean is growing despite political uncertainty, economic instability and social unrest. Researchers refer to the expansion among Pentecostal churches as “the most successful social movement of the past century.” The growth is attributed to the absolute priority of emphasizing the person and work of the Holy Spirit. Whatever is accomplished is a result of God’s power and might.

As a result of the Azusa Street outpouring, fervent Pentecostal missionaries began establishing churches in Argentina, Brazil and Chile. These fellowships grew through door-to-door witnessing, evangelism crusades and church planting. New believers often suffered ridicule and were ostracized, and missionaries were sometimes forced to flee to other locations. But the church continued to grow.

Rapid church growth and church planting efforts intensified as verifiable miracles influenced people to attend mass evangelism events where thousands committed their lives to Christ. Media outreaches also played a significant role in spreading the gospel.

Missionaries to Latin America Caribbean are now partnering with national church leaders to embrace the challenge of reaching the region’s indigenous people groups. Together they are teaching national believers to be missionaries to their own people. Expectations are high as God continues to bring opportunities for ministry and change lives through the power of the gospel.
