|A brief History of
Believer's Assembly Church in Beach City,Ohio.
In early 1981 a group of Christians living in the southern Stark and
northern Tuscarawas county's realized a need for a full gospel
church in the area. Within a short time, a temporary location was
set up located at the American Legion hall in Strasburg, Ohio. The
first service was held on Father's day in 1981.
By 1982 the congregation was looking to expand. Several
buildings were considered, but the final decision was made, an
unfinished basement house.
It didn't look like much, but with a few interior walls removed,
benches added and it was ready to go. The first service was held in
late November 1982.
Let's get out of the basement!
By 1984, the congregation was ready to expand again. An architect
was located and the blue prints were drawn. The only thing missing
was the funding. The Lord stepped in and supplied the funds.
This was supplied by a generous local businessman who has since
gone to be with the Lord. The size of the basement was doubled,
and a ground level floor added. Services have been held ever since
in the new sanctuary with classrooms located in the basement.
Although many people have come and gone over the years, and
they are all missed. We are looking forward to meeting them again
In 2009 we opened a Community Food Pantry for low income
families. The needs within the community are great and we felt led
to step up and reach out to the community.
