Welcome to Jacksboro First Assembly of God!

You Matter


Welcome to the First Assembly of God of Jacksboro, where our doors are open to people from all backgrounds.


Together, we’re striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible - a church with relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate care for those in need. In short, we’d like to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage the entire community, one life at a time.


So whether you’re a spiritual seeker who’s just starting to ask questions about God, or a committed Christian who wants to sink the roots of your faith even deeper, you can find a home here at the First Assembly of God. You’ll find that this is a place where you really matter—because you matter to God.


At First Assembly we love God. We believe in God's radical, unconditional, and unwavering love for us. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God. We are not asking you to change your belief system before you attend our church. We are simply inviting you on a journey toward Jesus. For years churches have placed a high priority on Jesus as the get-out-of-hell free card. We place the highest priority on Jesus as a live-life-to-the-fullest invitation. We believe every person has a dream deep inside their hearts, and that God put that dream there, not for our glory, but for His.


We are not concerned with where someone's been, but where they are going. We are not as concerned about what they are, as we are about what they can become.


We believe that the Bible is God's word. It is real, it is living, and it is active. We believe that the people who don't go to church anywhere are not the enemy, but that they are real people who need the perfect love that only God can give. We believe that God gives this love through of all people - us. We do not and we will not display a holier-than-thou attitude toward anyone. We are all broken people, but He is putting us back together. And finally and most importantly we believe that Jesus really lived, He really died on the cross, and He really rose again on the third day and that He is coming back for a pure and holy church, and we cannot and we will not water down that message ever.


So enjoy the presence of the Lord with us today and respond to His love and calling for your life. 

Why Support First Assembly of God?

Two thousand years ago, Jesus challenged an ordinary group of people with two simple words, “Follow Me.” Those who said yes to His call learned truth at His feet, grew in His love, and eventually shared with the world the life-changing message of His salvation.

Jesus’s simple invitation still stands. No previous experience is required, no level of maturity expected, no special skills needed—only a willingness to follow.

When we answer His call, He gives each of us a unique role to fulfill in the body of Christ. For instance, I am charged to preach and teach His Word. Other members of our staff teach our little ones about Christ. Some care for the needs of our community as resource providers. Still others provide support for our international ministries.

One of my favorite sayings is, “There are goers and there are senders.” God may not have called you to be a “goer.” However, He has called all of us to be “senders.” We’re all expected to support His work around the world.

The parable of the talents, found in Matthew 25:14–30, teaches that people are accountable and responsible to God for the way they use the resources they are given. They are expected to “steward” or “manage” these for the One who has given them. God wants us to reinvest into His kingdom the talents and gifts He has given us. At Insight for Living, that’s exactly what we’re doing.

What has God entrusted to your hands? You could make no greater investment with the resources our Lord has called you to steward than to deposit them in eternal work. I invite you to consider partnering with us and support the ministry of First Assembly of God.

The Foundations of First Assembly of God

First Assembly of God was founded in 1910 with the mission that the community needed to hear the full gospel message. Our work is founded on the following five pillars of faith:


A message of hope and faith in Jesus Christ as the only way to find peace with themselves and Father God. 


Divine healing is the right and privelege of all believers and that Jesus Christ paid for our healing at the whipping post and His atoning death.
