We follow the doctrines of the Assemblies of God. Salvation, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, Divine Healing, and the Second Coming of Christ are considered Cardinal Doctrines, which are essential to the church’s core mission of reaching the world for Christ!
In January 1923, the congregation had its first services in its new building located at 2540 Jefferson Street. The local congregation became affiliated with the General Council of the Assemblies of God in January 1930.
On May 3, 1959, the dedication service was held for the edifice at 2447 Green Street.
In June 1972, the Harrisburg areas was hit by Hurricane Agnes. The Green Street building was inundated with 18-feet of water, which caused $75,000 in damage. It was then the Official Board made the decision to erect a new building and the congregation agreed.
In 1974, 10 1/2 acres were purchased on North Progress Avenue in Susquehanna Township. In October 1976, a groundbreaking service was held and in November, construction began.
A History of Blessings
Harrisburg First Assembly of God remains in the same building that was built on that ground in 1977. Through the years God has blessed us. Hundreds have been saved, healed, and baptized in the Spirit.
At Harrisburg Assemblies of God, we strive to serve our congregation in the best way we know how – through the examples and teachings of Jesus Christ and the Word of God. Our team members have a love for God and a passion for serving others.
