On Friday I went to the main Assemblies of God church in Tehran, on the corner of Qods and "Father" Taleghani Street. There were about 600 people in the congregation! The preacher talked about the place in Genesis where God says to Adam: "where are you?" and applied it to ... everyone... He walked back and forth across the stage as he talked... like a pendulum...

A council of the EU report wrote:

It is mainly the Protestant churches that accept converts. With the exception of the Assemblies of God, however, they take a very reticent line on admitting new members to their faith.

Again I have to admire people who stand up for their beliefs like that.
