Our Rich History
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.
