The West Point Church began during the 1930’s and they met each summer under a temporary structure known as a brush arbor. The Chruch got it's name because during the winter months the church would convene each Sunday in a nearby one-room school. The school had been built in the west corner of someone’s field and became known as the West Point School. After several winters meeting in this school, the congregation became known as the West Point Church
This small group experienced the supernatural gift of the Holy Ghost evidenced by speaking with tongues as described in Acts 2. This powerful experience had been rediscovered due to the dynamic revivals that happened at the turn of the 20th century in Topeka, KS and at Azuza Street in Los Angelos CA. This movement became know as the Pentecostal Movement and so the church naturally became known as the West Point Pentecostal Church.
They built their first building in 1937. It was a small frame church made out of rough-cut timber with pews that had been torched and varnished. Three years later the church caught on fire and burned to the ground. They rebuilt the church out of stone. It was completed in 1941 and the original structure still remains visible from the rear of our old sanctuary.
In 2003, with no room left to grow, the church erected a new sanctuary that we presently enjoy.

Divine Healing and the Supernatural. It is very common within our worship services for people to be invited to the front for special prayer. We believe through prayer and faith we receive access to the supernatural. We believe in divine healing, provision and miraculous deliverance. We have found the scripture to be true; nothing is too hard for our God!
