First Assembly was first conceived in prayer and then birthed at 711 Rogers Streeet in Albemarle. God then began to lead the spirituallly hungry to the church,while the fellowship eventually grew too large for the small white building.
This required the congregation to relocate to the historic Center Theater on West Main in downtown Albemarle. The congregation quickly grew again to over 200 in three years, requiring a stretch of faith again in 1986 with a new building on the already purchased 30 acres on the 24/27 by-pass. It seems the congregation was cast in a destiny of growth and expansion. We believe that destiny is once again manifest in the vision God has given for this great moment!
Again God moved mightily within our church and as a result our congregation grew even more. On July 24, 2005 we had a ground breaking ceremony with Dr. Charles Cookman for the construction of our new sanctuary. 11 months later on Sunday, June 11, 2006 we were all together for one service to praise and worship our Lord. What a mighty God we serve!!
We cain't wait to see what God has planned next for us. As we continue our journey with Him, we want to take this time to invite you to....
Come and grow with us and be a part of something much greater than all of us!
