Who We Are...
First Assembly of God is...
An Active Church, where opportunities to serve are extended through the various departments of the church, so that every Christian may experience the love and joy of ministering in some way unto the needs of others.
An Educational Church, where we emphasize all phases of Christian Education. Our Sunday School offers competent teachers and classes for every age and the best available materials to provide you with a systematic study of God's Word so faith in Jesus Christ can grow.
A Friendly Family Church, where we offer a warm friendliness that cares for one another as a family. Everyone is welcome as part of God's family in the household of faith. You are loved.
The Seadrift Intercessors
Everyone hoped and prayed for the men to be safe, healthy and to come home. Many rumors and stories were heard about the conditions of war, but that information only strengthened the resolve of the people of the church to pray. When Germany surrendered and Japan was defeated, all 52 men came home alive. Not a single man was even injured.
Many testimonies came from those returning home. Some were involved in D-Day, the deliverance of the Philippines, and island hopping across the Pacific Ocean. God had heard every prayer and miraculously protected each one.
Few of the men remain today. Most have gone to their eternal reward. But, their memory lives on in the story of the 52 men from the church in Seadrift, Texas, who bravely and courageously answered the call to serve during one of America's most dangerous times.
The church continues to pray today. Pastor Tim Smith leads the congregation in every service, as time is allowed for special prayer. The church interceeds and God still hears and answers prayer. The picture collage is still in First Assembly of God in Seadrift, Texas, reminding the church that God is the final authority.
In every military conflict, the church has prayed and in every war, all the men came home. Korea, Vietnam, The Gulf War, and The Liberation of Iraq, and Afganistan, men from the church served with courage, the church prayed, God responded, and they all came home.
