Our Mission Statement
We are a church that seeks to build a bridge connecting the church to its community,
believers to their calling, and the lost to their Savior
Our Biblical Mandate
2 Corinthians 5:17-20 "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God."
Our Core Values
We share the only message that works using any method that works. As the church, we declare and demonstrate the gospel in everything we say and do; we will do anything short of sin to introduce people to the good news of Jesus.
We embrace His purpose over our preferences. As the church, we exist for the mission of God; we are spiritual contributors, not spiritual consumers.
We believe God is forming a people, not just saving individuals. As the church, we invite people to belong before they believe; we believe that life change happens best in Christ-centered community.
We meet needs when we see needs. As the church, we recognize and run toward opportunities to serve and strengthen our community; we serve without an agenda.
We don’t recruit volunteers, we release leaders. As the church, we help people discover how God made them; we empower people to faithfully serve in ways that align their talents and passions.
We do the best we can with the best we have. As the church, we desire to worship God with excellence in every endeavor; we honor God through wise stewardship of resources.
We hold tightly to everything God says to us; we hold loosely to everything God gives to us. As the church, we stand firmly on God’s word; we give cheerfully to God’s work.
A Church Planting Church
At Niagara Falls First Assembly of God, we believe that healthy churches plant new churches. In 2012, we launched Lumber City Church in North Tonawanda, NY and in 2014 Nickel City Church in North Buffalo, NY. Our goal is not only to plant churches, but to plant churches that will continue to plant more churches.
