Our History

Formed in 1984, as a local fellowship of the Assemblies of God in Reinbeck, Iowa, this church stands as a testimony of the persistent, faith-filled prayers of a farmer named Orville Backens who believed God 40 years for a Spirit-filled, evangelical church to be established in Grundy County.

Beginning as a home bible study, the congregation later held meetings in the Reinbeck Memorial Building before purchasing the current property in 1985, which operated as a plumbing shop. From these humble beginnings, God continues to build His church as a lighthouse to draw people near to God through the grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
