"TO GOD BE THE GLORY, GREAT THINGS HE HAS DONE.......
THOUGH THE PAST BE GLORIOUS, THE BEST IS YET TO COME!"
First Assembly of God is located in the center of Lefore County in the town of Howe, Oklahoma. On March 24, 1919, under the direction of Pastor Bruce David, the church became affiliated with the General Council of the Assemblies of God.
The General Council of the Assemblies of God was organized in 1914 and is one of the largest Pentecostal fellowships in the United States. In the late 1800's and early 1900's the Baptism in the Holy Ghost was being poured out in a mighty way as was in Acts Chapter 2 on the Day of Pentecost. In the early 1900's revivals were spreading and many Pentecostals recognized the need for greater organization and accountability. The early ministers of this fellowship met in Hot Springs, Arkansas on April 2-12, 1914 to promote unity and doctrinal stability, establish legal standing, coordinate the mission enterprise, and establish a ministerial training school.
There were 300 delegates to the first General Council representing a variety of independent churches and networks of churches. The same anointing that was experienced on the Day of Pentecost and the revivals of 100 years ago is still felt today.
Hebrews 13:8 says that Jesus Christ is the same Yesterday Today and Forever. His Power is still the same. At Howe First Assembly of God we will preach the Word of God. We believe that Jesus still saves, Jesus still heals, Jesus still baptizes people in the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues, and we believe that Jesus is coming again.
We invite you to worship with us this week. We offer a ministry for children through our children's church. Children are instructed in Biblical Principles through a lesson designed especially for them. In every service we have an opportunity for prayer at the altar. We believe prayer is important and it is the foundation of our ministry at Howe Assembly of God.
