overview stating the obvious
Overview: Stating the obvious..
  • It has been said that the initial physical evidence of an Assembly of God Church in the Philippines is an unfinished building. *This one is another proof of that statement. (Sad, really.)

* Dr. Eli Javier


But in this unfinished facility, is housed a church that has already made a difference in the Philippines in terms of Church Planting, Training of Workers and Mobilization of Believers.

  • We started something here. We are committed to become a discipling church engaged not only in evangelizing the lost but also in equipping the believers, leaders and church planters. We just need help to complete this project to facilitate what we set out to do.

  • A Church-Planting Church:
  • The First Assembly Roxas Missions has been in the frontline of church planting, as Headquarter for S.O.S. (Summer Of Service) -a Church Planting Mobilization of ordinary believers.
  • More than 500 churches were planted in the last 22 years using SOS.-(this is more than 10% of the total Assemblies of God Churches in the Philippines!)

  • SOS Church Planting:
  • We are providing a Church Planting Laboratory for Churches so that they too can reproduce themselves in church planting.
  • We learn to walk by walking. We learn to talk by talking. Therefore we learn to plant a church by actually planting a church!

  • Training Church Planters:
  • The First Assembly Roxas Missions has been training “workers” through a Church-based Bible School, the BEREAN School of Ministry.
  • To conserve the new church-plant, it is essential that we train our own Church Planter!
Berean School of MinistryFor the last 22 years:More than 500 Graduates who are now Church Planters, Pastors and Missionaries.
The First PGCAG missionaries fully supported by the Philippines AOG Churches were graduates of BEREAN School of Ministry!

  • Free-Tuition Bible School. The whole school fee of $70 to $100/year (P3,000+) is for the materials that the students will receive, not for teachers’ salary.
  • We don’t maintain a dormitory. Some students are adopted by our members into their homes for the whole school year. Some stay on rented rooms or apartments in the community.
  • URGENT: We need the school facilityin the present building of First Assembly!
