You Belong Here
Whether you’re new to church, have been a Christian for many years, or are looking for a fresh start, this is a place where you belong. Our hope is to give you a place where you experience a powerful encounter with God and a community of people to walk alongside you in your faith journey.
Our mission is to lift people through the power of the cross.
We do this by helping people follow Jesus, connect to the church and discover their purpose so they can impact the world around them.
We accept you for who you are, but love you too much to leave you there! We all want to grow and encourage you to be who God called you to be.
Our Lead Pastors
Rob Haslett joined our staff in 2016 as our Discipleship Pastor. In 2019, he was voted in as First Assembly’s Lead Pastor. He was entrusted with First Assembly by our former Senior Pastor of 42 years, Ron Hawkins. His wife, Rhonda Haslett, currently leads as our Ministry Development and Womens Pastor.
They both have been in ministry for over 25 years, spending many of those years as youth and children’s pastors respectively. They have five children and two grandchildren.
Our Rich History
We’ve learned from our history that the people of First Assembly have always been encouraged by our past and driven toward the future in hopes of lifting Fort Wayne through the power of the cross.
In the early 1930’s, a group of Pentecostal believers came together to found First Pentecostal Tabernacle on South Calhoun Street. In 1937 they purchased property on Winter Street and in 1940 became an Assemblies of God affiliated church. 3 locations and 85+ years later, First Assembly of God is still a thriving Pentecostal church making an impact on the city of Fort Wayne.
