The United Pentecostal Council of the Assemblies of God was established in 1919, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States. It is a historically Black fellowship of Trinitarian Pentecostal churches. Like their forefathers in Holiness churches, members believe in sanctification, in holiness of life, and in divine healing. They believe that tongues are the initial sign of Baptism in the Holy Ghost. They practice the Lord's Supper, and baptism by immersion. The UPCAG is present in Barbados, Jamaica, Trinidad, and the United States. The Council is organized in Districts, with general headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
