In 1934, a group of 13 young people from Columbus, GA “came across the river” and held tent revival meetings here in Phenix City, AL.

The young people were led by Rev. Emory Andrews, who felt the call to start an Assembly of God Church in Phenix City.

The Revival Meetings were a huge success. And from that small beginning, the group began holding regular services in January of 1935 at the corner of 7th Ave and 20th St.

On April 28, 1935, The Rev. J.C. Thames (then superintendent of the Alabama District) presided over the opening of the Church.
Reverend Andrews was elected as church pastor of The Phenix City Assembly of God. It was not until sometime in 1946, that it began going by its present name of First Assembly of God.

Shortly thereafter, the church held a tent revival, led by Rev. A.S. Davis, and started to grow rapidly. The congregation had to move into a new building on the corner of Flinn Alley and 10th Ave. Members and friends donated the materials and labor to build the new church.

First Assembly moved to its current location at 3777 Highway 431 North under the leadership of Rev. Barry Danner. New buildings were constructed to include a new sanctuary, fellowship hall & youth building, Royal Ranger cabins, storage facilities and bus sheds. Rev. Barry Danner retired on Dec 31st 2022 and Rev. Nelson Lugo was voted in as our current Pastor.

Through the years, PCF has been blessed by the men who have served as its pastor.
