An historical fixture in the heart of the Hill District, First Church of God in Christ serves as the Mother Church for the denomination in the Western Pennsylvania region. The mission began as a house-to-house prayer group. The church was formally organized in 1924 and its original building was a converted stable at 2502 Centre Avenue. Though few in number, the membership was on fire for the Lord. They held revivals, tent meetings (for example, on Tannehill Street), evangelized on the coal fields and spread the good news about Jesus Christ and His redemptive power. As a result of the tireless work of those early pioneers, many souls came to Christ. In 1936, the membership moved to 35 Miller Street and remained there until 1996 when the new edifice was completed.
The ultimate goal of this body is to prove that the love of Jesus is ALIVE today! The efforts of this assembly are based upon Saint Matthew chapter 25, verses 35-36: "...for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me." Our ministries include: 1) A dynamic worship experience; 2) Evangelistic Outreach; 3) Christian Education' 4) Social Outreach; and 5) Christian Fellowship.
