Our Church History

The beginnings of the First Pentecostal Church in Gainesville, Texas started during the early period of the 1940’s, under the Pastorate of Rev. Nicola Miller. Her fervent prayer and love for truth led the way for Pastor Kenneth Lewis to carry the work into the late 50’s. Through God’s direction the church has continued to thrive since its founding.
