Pentecostal Assembly is a fundamental, Bible believing church, rooted in the word of God, with a vital message for people today. Everyone without distinction of race or color is welcome to worship God in the divine spirit of truth.
The purpose of this church is to establish, maintain and perpetuate all of the teachings of the sacred scriptures, as well as exercise charity among the less fortunate.
This church, located in New Bedford, Massachusetts, was first dedicated to the service of the Lord in 1933. There are currently 120 members led by Pastor Jose Moniz. Pastor Moniz, a 1992 graduate of Zion Bible College, was elected to the position of Senior Pastor in 1994.
Pentecostal Assembly provides weekly services in the English and Portuguese languages. For service times and language preferences, please refer to our service times page.
We are mission focused. In partnership with the Greater Boston Food Bank, we help service the needs of SouthCoast residents by providing and maintaining a food pantry. For food pantry information, please refer to our Outreach page. In addition, we support 15 missionaries around the globe including Angola, Azores, Brazil, Cape Verde, China, Guatemala, Guinea, Haiti, India ( Upper Room Missions, Inc.), Israel, Italy, Mozambique, the Philippines ( Tom and Nancy Cook Ministries ), Portugal, Spain and the United States.
