In 1919, Charles Spellman held a tent meeting which resulted in the formation of a small group of believers that began holding worship services in various homes. Since that humble beginning, Neighborhood Church has outgrown 5 facilities and the official name of "Neighborhood Church of the Assemblies of God" was adopted in 1954. In March of 2003, the present location on E. Allen Rd. was occupied. Over the years, we've seen generations of families coming to Christ and reaching the surrounding communities. As we look back on our history we realize our strength is not in where we meet, but in Who we meet.
Church is a lifestyle, not an event. We need to live in community with Jesus and each other. Each week we meet to engage in worship and hear relevant biblical teaching about everyday issues. Our gatherings are warm, welcoming, and real. Our goal is to help everyone experience and live in the reality of Jesus' love.
We believe in helping people grow as followers of Christ. We believe this is done together in the context of our gatherings. We take advantage of gathering together in environments that are centered on Christ's teachings, and encourage the development of community. Growing in community together provides opportunity for mentoring and accountability.
Jesus lived a life driven by compassion towards people. Knowing this to be true, it is important that we put actions to our beliefs by serving our community and the world. Neighborhood is committed to this principle by its involvement in our community through acts of service, and partnering with community based programs. We are committed to praying and giving to local and foreign mission. We want to become Jesus hands and feet to this world.
