About Our Church

Living Stones Fellowship is a small church in beautiful Side Lake, MN. We are committed to proclaiming — by word and deed — Jesus as Savior, Healer, and Lord throughout the Side Lake community and northern Minnesota. We have ministries for all ages at Living Stones; check our calendar for service times, upcoming events, and ministry opportunities. As believers who are joined by a common faith, we invite you to be built up and grow with us.

“As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house….” (1 Peter 2:4-5)

More Info

We are an Assemblies of God church. Currently the Assemblies of God USA and Assemblies of God organizations around the world make up the world’s largest Pentecostal denomination with some 67 million members and adherents.

The Bible is our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. The Assemblies of God Statement of Fundamental Truths lists the tenets of faith that all Assemblies of God churches adhere to.

Our focus is on knowing God, loving people, and growing together.

We embrace the five-fold ministry roles listed in Ephesians 4, appointing apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers as elders who will serve, equip, and build up the church in unity to reach its full potential.


We support Assemblies of God missionaries as well as other missionaries and ministries outside of the AG network. Through our partnerships, we seek to accomplish the mutual goal of reaching the world for Christ by evangelizing the lost, showing compassion, discipling believers, and training leaders to proclaim the message to their own people and to other nations.
