A Short History

In Deuteronomy 4:19, Moses gives this charge to the Israelites:  "Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that, you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live.  Teach them to your children and to their children after them."

1934 -- A small group of people formed the Norfolk Assembly of God, which began meeting in a rented storefront on Norfolk Avenue.  We soon moved to an upstairs hall.

1937 -- We moved into our first church building at Fourth Street & Omaha Avenue.  A few years later found the congregation in a basement facility at Third Street & Park Avenue, which remained our home for many years.

1958 -- A new church and pastor's residence were constructed at Eleventh Street & Pasewalk Avenue with much volunteer labor from the church, community, and neighboring Assemblies across the state.  One of the first services held there was the 1959 Nebraska District Council, at which the new building was dedicated. 

1981 -- The congregation took a step of faith when we purchased 10.8 acres on the northeast corner of Victory Road and Norfolk Avenue.  We began to pray for a way to put up a new building.  The total debt on the property was paid off in 1984 through God's miraculous provision, but there still seemed no way to build.

1988 -- The phrase, "Join Us On The Road To Victory" appeared on the top of the bulletin each week as a deliberate word of faith from Pastor Mark Rose as he, too, began to look ahead to a new church home on Victory Road. 

1990 -- In August, a jubilant congregation of 88 people held a groundbreaking ceremony.  Our District Superintendent  and the Deacons turned shovels of dirt, then Pastor Rose hopped onto a bulldozer and showed us what breaking ground really meant!  Moving to the North, South, East and West, he carved a cross where the new building would sit.  Everyone knew the Spirit of the Lord had moved onto that property.  Truly, we were standing on Holy Ground.

March 29, 1992 -- The first service was held at 200 N. Victory Road.  Many hands pitched-in to build walls, pour concrete, paint, wallpaper, clean, feed, pray, and support financially as we raised a new building to the glory of God!

We worship together as a friendly, committed congregation of people; we know the blessings of God because He has poured them out on us.  Lives continue to be transformed and we are committed to helping people discover who they are in Jesus Christ.  Our desire is to see Jesus proclaimed to all generations.
