Our Vision

The vision of Fredonia Assembly  is to REACH, TEACH, MEND, and SEND.  Through this vision we strive to leave a lasting impression on our community and its surrounding areas.

1 Corinthians 12:12 tells us, “The body is a unit, through it is made up of many parts; and though it’s parts are many, they form one body.  So it is with Christ.”  It is through this fusion, one to another, that we can successfully reach the hurting for Jesus Christ.

The definition of FUSION is the connecting of two or more things.  We would like to invite you to come and connect with us at First Assembly in Fredonia, Kansas.  We are a place for people like you … because people really matter!

 

Pastor Ray and Brenda Pile           Lead Pastors

Pastor Ray and Brenda were both raised in southeast Kansas, graduating from Field Kindley High School in Coffeyville in 1972.  They were married in 1974 and he graduated from Central Bible College in 1976.  They pastored in Lyons, Nebraska from 1976 until 1986.  They moved to Wichita in 1986 to pastor Trinity Christian Center.  After over 22 years of fruitful ministry there, God brought them to First Assembly in February of 2009.  Pastor Ray enjoys teaching the Word and helping God’s people to walk in their respective callings.  Brenda loves serving the church in practical ways and in the ministry of music. They have four grown children; Diane, Tony, Tim, and Stephen.

 

 

Pastor Kipp and Abriel Wuellner Associate & Youth Pastors

Pastor Kipp and Abriel joined the staff at First Assembly in February of 2007.   Pastor Kipp began his ministry experience in the Oneighty Youth Group, at Lenexa Christian Center in Kansas City, serving as a youth sponsor for 5 years, team bus captain, and going on numerous missions trips.  Starting in 2004 he served as youth pastor at a small church outside of Kansas City for 2 years.  They believe in growing and nurturing teenagers in Fredonia and the surrounding areas.  With emphasis on having a personal relationship with God, they endeavor to guide our future generations to a closer walk with Him. .  They have two small children Madelyn and Kaden.


Amy Booth                                                   Children’s Pastor

Amy has served in the Children’s ministry most of her life.  Starting at age 10 she began helping teachers in the preschool children’s church class.  When she later had her own children her ministry and desire to help children grow in Jesus grew immensely!  Amy worked at the Fredonia Middle School for 5 years before becoming the Children’s Pastor at First Assembly.  Looking back, she can see that God was preparing her for the future ministry He had in store for her.  Amy stands in awe of God sometimes wondering why He chose her to minister, but then realizes that Jesus became her confidence and through Him she can do all things.  Amy has one dream that is far above all other dreams, “She wants to please God!” 1 Thessalonians 2:4  Amy lives in Fredonia with her husband, Jason, and daughters Kera and Daya.

Act On It

 
They profess to know God, but by their deeds they deny Him. Titus 1:16
 
Most everybody say that they believe in God.  A whole lot of people claim to be Christians.  But the Bible says that there are those whose actions do not line up with their words.  The way they treat their spouse, those they disagree with, or a waitress who gets their order wrong does not reflect someone who truly believes in God.  Words are cheap.  Show me your faith in God by your actions.
 
Pastor Ray Pile


From The East To The West

How far has the Lord taken our sins from us? Farther than the distance from east to west! Psalm 103:12
 
Do you know how far it is from the east to the west?  In fact, it cannot be measured!  We can measure from the North Pole to the South Pole, but not from east to west.  That is how completely God has removed even our worst sins …

He Loved First

 
We love Him because He first loved us.  I John 4:19
 
Before we even knew that there was a God, He loved us.  When we cursed and mocked His name, He loved us.  His love was first.  Then, when we come to know about Him and His love, our best response is to love Him.  There are people who believe in Him, but do not love Him. …

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

 
These people, says God, honor me with their words, but their heart is really far away from me. Mark 7:6

Haters Gonna Hate

Commit Yourselves

The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. 2 Chr. 16:9
Do you know that God wants to help people?  He’s looking for people to help.  The Word says that He is scanning the earth just looking for those who have fully committed their hearts to Him.  Those are the ones He is looking to help and strengthen.  So let’s completely give ourselves to Him…and then let Him find us.
Pastor Ray Pile


Not All Go To Heaven

Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.” John 3:3
There was a movie a few years ago entitled “All Dogs Go to Heaven”.  There are some people that believe that all good people go to heaven.  But that is wrong.  According to Jesus, only those who are born again will even get to see it.  No one gets there by being good.  All of us have to be born again to have the hope of heaven after we die.  So how about it?  Have you been born again?
Pastor Ray Pile


God’s Word Over Yours

Who Do You Rely On?

God alone is my rock and salvation, my stronghold; I won’t be moved. Psalm 62:7
We all need someone or something to depend on.  But whatever it is, it will fail us at some point.  Only God is our rock that we can always depend on.  Everything else can change, but God is always there.  He is the one place of safety that I can always count on.  People change, let us down, die, or move.  God is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Why Church is Important

Some people have gotten out of the habit of meeting for worship, but we must not do that. We should keep on encouraging each other, especially since you know that the day of the Lord’s coming is getting closer. Heb. 10:25
 

Church.

“When you come together as a church…” I Cor 11:18
The Bible assumes that Christians will regularly come together as a church.  Sure we can and should worship God at home or in the beauty of His nature.  But church is much more than just worship.  It is connecting with fellow Christians, encouraging them and being encouraged. It is being a part of something bigger than ourselves.  To be sure, no church is perfect.  But rather than letting that be an excuse to stay away, it should be the driving reason to be a part of it.
Pastor Ray Pile


Love God and Love Others

If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. I John 4:20
 

You Are a Sinner

Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. I Tim 1:15
Jesus did not come to make the religious feel good nor to judge the bad people.  He came to make salvation possible for all sinners.  You cannot become a Christian without first admitting that you are a sinner, that you deserve hell, and that you are not good enough to go to heaven when you die.  Then and on …

Forgive them for your own sake.

“When you are praying and you remember that you are angry with another person about something, forgive that person. Forgive them so that your Father in heaven will also forgive your sins.” Mark 11:25
 
 

All of us have had someone in our lives make us angry. Someone has hurt or mistreated us. Jesus tells us to forgive them, not because they deserve it. They don’t! We need to forgive them for our sakes. We do it to open ourselves to the forgiveness and healing of God. Forgive them, not because they need it, but because you need it.
