About Evangel Assembly of God
Evangel Assembly of God is a dynamic church located in Durham, NC. Our beliefs are based on the Bible and centered on Jesus Christ. Our mission is very simple: to lead people to honor and glorify Jesus Christ. That means we’re not about a building or some complicated religious system, but about helping people from all backgrounds discover the joy that comes from knowing and serving Jesus Christ.
We invite you to come and check us out this weekend at one of our worship services. We know that going to a new church can be intimidating, so we try to do things in a way where you’ll feel welcome and not like an outsider. When you come, you can participate or just sit back and observe. You’ll discover a warm atmosphere, practical teaching from God's Word and lots of friendly people pursuing God together. And with childcare and classes for all ages, your family will love it too!
God made a promise in the Bible that if we seek after Him, we’ll find Him. You are a valued part of God’s creation and His deep desire is to be in a relationship with you. So come and join us as we pursue God together!

Evangel Assembly of God had its humble beginnings about seventy years ago in a store-front space on Geer Street in Durham North Carolina. A few years later, the church moved to a more stable location on Holloway Street. As the congregation started to increase, the church sought and found its home at its current location on Lynn Road. Throughout the years, the church has made it a priority to build God’s Kingdom. Missionaries have been sent to different parts of the world and many local churches have been built. At the Homefront, programs are in place to educate this generation and the next. It is no wonder that today its leadership and congregants are drawn from all corners of the world. People from various nations call Evangel Life home. Families have hailed from Europe Canada, US, Central and South America. Likewise, many of her members originate from Southeast Asian countries like the Philippines, Cambodia, China and Korea. Many of African origin also abound in the congregation.
Evangel is a sanctuary in more ways than one. The Word of God is preached, the love of Jesus Christ is shared, the leadership and presence of the Holy Spirit is also very welcome. What started as a fledgling group somewhere in downtown Durham, Evangel has grown into a vibrant, diverse and passionate flock with a heart for God, and with His continued help, will continue to thrive - Evangel Life.
