First Assembly Bangor

Love God, Love People and Serve Both Well

Church History

First Assembly Bangor began as a church plant in 1978. Pastor David Tidwell walked the streets of Bangor with nothing more than five dollars in his pocket but with a dream given to him by God to pioneer a church to proclaim the wonderful gospel of Jesus Christ. In those early days the church met at a local hotel banquet room but by 1984 the church property on Finson road was purchased. For a season the church gathered under a tent on the new property while a building began to take shape. 

In 2009 the Pastor Phil Mumford accepted the invitation to come and pastor First Assembly Bangor his calling was simple; “preach the word and love the people.”  Over the last 11 years the church has grown and many ministries have been expanded to connect with the community and grow new believers into disciples and then in turn to disciple others.

In 2017 The Lord spoke to the leadership of the church a simple phrase. “Love God, love people and serve both well.” This spirit is in the DNA of this growing assembly and we look forward with great anticipation to great things in the future.
