“Where it the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”

(2 Corinthians 3:17)

Freedom marks the First Assembly of God experience.
Visit us and you will see a congregation that:
  • Celebrates with passionate worship with singing, clapping, waving banners, even dancing,
  • Ministers to one another through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
  • Receives in-depth and relevant teaching from the Bible.
  • Reaches out to the community with feeding programs, support groups, and services.
  • Gets encouragement and training to take the power of God with them into their daily lives and circles of influence.
  • Receives extraordinary miracles through prayer for personal needs from our prayer team.

Come visit! Sit back, observe, and feel comfortable. We’d love to see you!
We don’t make visitors stand or say anything. Dress is casual. Nursery and children programs are available.

Our Mission Statement:

We love God and God loves people. The family of First Assembly of God joyfully and lovingly joins together to open up a GATEWAY for earth to touch Heaven, and Heaven to touch earth. We are the gateway to the unreached world.

What We Believe

Gateway Prayer & Conference Center

Besides being a local church, First Assembly of God has had a regional and national ministry. We have hosted 24FLOOD (also known as The Furnace) and currently host some of the Dearborn House of Prayer services focusing on an awakening in the strategic Dearborn/Detroit region and the nation. We have also hosted a number of national and international figures such as Lou Engle, General Jerry Boykin, Brian Simmons, and Father Zecharia. We’ve been blessed with the ministry of worship leaders such as Justin Rizzo, Aaron Crider and Catherine Mullins. Conferences, prayer gatherings, and strategic events are a regular occurrence, designed to encourage the Body of Christ in the region and to win people to Christ.
