Hello, we are the Fishers and have the privilege of serving as the pastors
of First Assembly of God in Newbern. Our ministry team seeks to minister
to people's needs in love, viewing everyone who comes as valuable and
important in the Lord's sight. After all, Christ died for us all. If you are
looking for a place to receive either temporary spiritual ministry, or a
permanent church home, I want to invite you to stop by First Assembly and
experience worshiping the Lord with us.
