Welcome to the online home of First Assembly in Jefferson City, Missouri. We’re a dynamic group of Christians who are passionate about God and passionate about people.
We are convinced! We believe in the authority of the Bible, the love and lordship of Jesus Christ, the present-day power of the Holy Spirit, the value and significance of every person, and the reality of eternity. Our preaching and teaching is pointed and practical, and we work hard to impress upon believers, from the very young to the very old, the unchanging, life-transforming, character-building truths of God’s Word.
We are captivated by the love and grace and majesty and power of God demonstrated to us through Jesus Christ. Because of that, our services are marked by lively music, vigorous and spontaneous worship, and bold prayer. We sing, we shout, we clap, we lift our hands in praise. Sometimes we weep in the presence of the Lord. We are driven to know Christ intimately, to be filled with the Holy Spirit, and to please God with our worship.
We are connected to one another. Our family of believers is multi-cultural and multi-generational and the love of God flows through our ranks! We provide lots of opportunity for fellowship and relationship building. We believe in and practice encouraging one another in the Lord. Everybody is welcome and anybody can be an insider at First Assembly!
We are committed to reaching the world around us with the good news of Jesus Christ. Our first mission field, of course, is Jefferson City and the surrounding area. We strive to be genuine Christian witnesses. And our focus on reaching goes beyond us–across the United States and out to the nations of the world. We support more than a hundred missionaries and ministries by giving and going and praying.
We are confident and courageous! God has called us to thrive and to flourish, to grow and to increase, to be blessed and to be a blessing. He has assigned to us divine purpose and power. And we are determined to live out our destiny as the people of God! Without Him, we can do nothing. But, thank God, we are with Him and He is with us!
We are collecting more and more people on this journey. And we love it! When it comes to people living for Jesus and loving each other, we declare, “The more the merrier!” So…if you’re looking for a place to call home here in the Jefferson City area, we invite you to come and try us on for size. If you’re only able to join us through this website, we hope to be a blessing to you. Ultimately, we hope and pray that you will know Jesus Christ and experience His life-changing power for yourself. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about First Assembly or about this site.
