ABOUT 6000 believers packed the Lautoka Full Gospel Tabernacle in Saru, for the opening of the church's special general conference on Monday night.
Assemblies of God Superintendent Reverend Pita Cili said the heart of the Assemblies of God was with the people.
"And what we need right now is for the power of God to work within the people and the church," Mr Cili said.
The week-long conference began yesterday with a series of board meetings and special group conferences.
General secretary Reverend Viliame Vakasausau said the church would undergo structural changes.
"We had a conference last year and we decided to have another one this year and make it a special one because we wanted to implement our new structure," he said, noting that the church existed in Fiji for almost 80 years.
