The rich heritage of our church, dating back to the late sixties, gives us a solid foundation to reach for the future. The small group of believers that gathered at the inception of our church secured a strong God fearing leader when Bishop Myers became pastor in 1971.
Throughout the decades of the seventies and eighties we continued to grow spiritually and numerically. Building projects in 1973 and 1984 expanded our facilities and gave us a greater capacity to serve our community.
The First Pentecostal Church elected David Myers as Pastor in 1998 and promoted Ellis Myers to Bishop. This father-son team proved to be a remarkable tool for continued revival and spiritual growth. Standing on the shoulders of men and women who gave us a foundation of Biblical teaching and sacrificial giving, seven acres of land was purchased in 1998. Construction began the following year on the new sanctuary.
In 2000, a sparkling new worship center totaling over 28,000 square feet was dedicated to the Lord. In 2008, our auditorium was expanded to seat 1,000 people, and a new Christian Café was added for fellowship and connection. In 2009, a new Family Life Center of 20,000 square feet was added for family ministries. Our youth and adults now enjoy a full-size basketball court and many other recreations in the new facility.
The combination of God’s blessings, faithful members and Godly leadership has propelled us to a place of end time revival.
