Our Story

Our story began in 1981 when Pastor Mike felt the call to become a minister of the Gospel of Jesus and to start a church in Williamstown, NJ.  In November 1982, we had our first service in what is now the Williamstown Middle School with 7 people.  As the church grew, we moved to a converted apartment on Main Street and then added the store front next to the apartment where we held our services and the converted apartment was used for children ministries during the service.  As the Lord continued to bless our local family of believers, God allowed us to purchase 16 acres of land on E. Malaga Road which we built our current building.

 Pastor Mike’s vision for the church has always been to make God head of His church.  WAG has always been faith based by trusting in God way’s and not man’s attempts to build His church.  God has never let us down!   God continues to provide for His church.   Pastor Mike’s original mission back in 1982 is the same it is today.  We are “Here for God” and “Here for Others”.  

After serving the local body of believers for 37 years, Pastor Mike retired as Lead Pastor from WAG in early 2020.

Pastor Rich Leland is our current interim Pastor.  He an ordained Assembly of God minister and has been a Pastor of the Assemblies of God for 30 years.
