The First United Pentecostal Church was founded in 1968 and the blessing of God has been upon the church since its inception. From the beginning location at the north end of Robins AFB on Highway 247 to the present location at the corner of Russell Parkway and Wellborn Road; God has directed and led this church to growth and revival.
The current church facility was built in 1987 under the direction of Pastor Gary Hosch and with the assistance of the members of the church. When they purchased the 3 acres where the current facility is located Pastor Hosch exhibited great insight and vision in leading this church to relocate. The church grew and prospered under the capable leadership of this great man of God until his resignation in 1997 after 19 years of serving as the pastor.
In February of 1998 Pastor Mark Fogarty accepted the responsibility of leading the First United Pentecostal Church of Warner Robins as its newly elected pastor. The church has experienced tremendous growth since 1998. Many new and exciting ministries have been developed while much emphasis has been placed on training leaders and saints to take an active part in the ministry of the church. During the past few years the church has experienced spiritual growth as well as numerical growth. Power packed prayer meetings, exciting church services, exuberant worship, a friendly atmosphere, a place for everyone, anointed preaching, Bible-based teaching, Spirit led leadership are just a few ways that people describe this exciting church.
When our guests attend the services they always receive a cordial and warm welcome from the usher or greeter that meets them at the front door. They are then welcomed to join in the worship during the service by receiving a welcome packet that contains several informative items about the church and its ministries.
Much emphasis is placed upon the ministry to children at the First United Pentecostal Church. We have classes designed and conducted for every age group as well as a well staffed nursery that is provided for Sunday school and the morning worship service every Sunday. When you arrive at the front door adults are directed to their class and the children are escorted the already occupied classroom where the teachers are anxiously awaiting their arrival.
