Our Story

Our story is comprised completely in the unique make-up of the individuals who call First Pentecostal Church their home. Although vastly different in their journeys, there are 3 cords that bind each of us together.


We Are…

We are real people infused with dynamic faith, committed to a common vision, joined together in the covenant love of our Creator. 


We Used to Be…

We used to be completely broken but are now grateful for undeserved redemption, astonished by amazing grace, healed by forgiveness and humbled by the divine invitation to be included in the greatest cause on earth.


We Serve… 

We serve a good and perfect God. The nations are His dwelling and our lives are His vessels. We have compassion for the poor, and our hearts are open to the rich. 

What We Believe

We are a church striving to become a 21st Century Apostolic Church.  We are founded upon the belief that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God.




We believe in the great commission and are endeavoring to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy, and compassion. 




We believe there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4 ). He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (Indwelling Spirit). 




We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin.  Through baptism, we identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38).  



We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues. (Acts 2:4) 


We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government. (Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11)
