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 three children Madelyn, Kaden, and Kameron.

 

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.

WE Are The Church

 
When you come together as a church… I Cor. 11:18
 
This phrase jumped out at me the other day.  We don’t come to church, we are the church.  The church is not a building. It is imperfect people of faith who regularly come together to encourage, love, and build up each other.  Their common bond is Jesus Christ and what He has …

From Bad to Good

You meant to hurt me, but God turned your evil into good. Genesis 50:20

 
We serve a great God.  He is able to take those 
things that are meant for evil in our lives and turn them into good.  He can take the worst situations, and redeem it for our benefit.  There isn’t anything that He cannot recycle for good.  God does not cause everything …

It’s Not About You

 
“Anyone among you who wants to be great must serve the others.”  Mark 10:43
 
So often we think in terms of what we receive.  We ask, “What’s in it for me?”  We even …

Marriage

 

“Marriage is to be honored by all, and husbands and wives must be faithful to each other. God will judge those who are immoral and those who commit adultery.”  Heb. 13:4
 
Marriage is God’s idea.  He created it.  He meant it to be a loving, exclusive relationship between one

Do You Believe In or Believe On?

 
So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” Acts 16:31
 
Almost everybody believes in the fact that there was a man named Jesus.  But there is a difference between believing in someone and believing o …

Heaven

The Scriptures say, “No one has ever seen, no one has ever heard, no one has ever imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” I Cor. 2:9
 
We can’t imagine what heaven is like.  It is so much better than what we have thought.  It isn’t floating around on a cloud with a harp.  We don’t become ange …

Do You Give Jesus First Place?

 
Jesus is to have first place in everything. Col. 1:18
 
We say we believe that.  But is it true?  Look at your weekly schedule.  Is Jesus in first place, or does He just get the leftovers of your time?  How about you …

Pray For Our Leaders

 
Pray for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. I Tim 2:2
 
Regardless of how you feel about our new president, we owe him the same scriptural duty as we did our previous presidents.  We are commanded to pray for …

Jesus Came For Your Imperfect Self

 
Come to Me, all you who are struggling hard and carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Matt. 11:28
 
Jesus did not come for those who have no struggles, but for those who do.  He’s there for anyone who is struggling and weighed down with burdens.  He’s not calling those who “have it al …

Do You Know The TRUTH?

I can say this about them, they love God and want very much to obey Him. But they are misguided and do not know the right way. Rom 10:2
 
We have all heard it.  “It doesn’t matter what you believe in, just as long as you’re sincere.”  T …

A Real Resolution

 We are looking for what God has promised, which are new heavens and a new earth. Only what is right and good will be there. 2 Peter 3:13
 
It seems like every year, people are looking forward to the new year.  They think that things will be different and better. But they seldom are.

New Life

Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 2 COR. 5:17
 
As we approach a new year, we think about a new start, a new beginning.  With Jesus, that is possible for everyone, everyday.  You don’t have t …

Because Grace

 
Because of His grace He made us right in His sight and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life. Titus 3:7
 
None of us are “right in His sight” on our own.  We must receive His grace for that to happen.  That’s what Jesus died for. Then, not only are we made right, but H …

Pray With Thanks

 Don’t worry about anything; on the contrary, make your requests known to God by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving.  Phil. 4:6
 
God commands us not to worry.  That’s hard!  But instead, He tells us to bring our worries to Him in prayer.  If something is big enough to worry about, it’s big enough to pray about.  However, H …

Just A Decision Away

 
God did this so that they would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from any one of us. Acts 17:6
 
None of us are far from God.  In fact, each of us is just a decision away from Him.  He wants us to seek Him.  But He is never far away, always available for you to find Him.  That is His plan.  He want …

My God Rules

Hallelujah! Our Lord God, the Almighty, rules! REVELATION 19:6
 
I don’t know who is going to win the presidential election next month.  I frankly don’t think that either candidate deserves my vote.  But one will win.  The Good News is that regardless of who does, God is still on the throne.  He is still in control.  That is something that will n …

God Saves

 
In fact, God is patient, because he wants everyone to repent and no one to be lost. 2 Peter 3:9
 
I hear it far more often than I want. “God damn it!”  Not only is that taking the Lord’s name it vain, it is a lie.  God does not damn, He saves.  He does not want anybody to be lost but for all to truly repent and …

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
 
I call it “God talk”.  God talk is when people say religious things or post them on Facebook  but their life does not demonstrate that they really believe what they’re saying.  They are just putting on a show by trying to sound religious.  Being a true follower of …

Hide and Seek

He did this so they might seek God, and perhaps they might reach out and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us.  Acts 17:27

You Are Special

Let God Change You

 
God, create a pure heart in me, and renew a right attitude within me. Psalm 51:10

More Than Hope

He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life. I Jn 5:12-13
 
You do not have to wait until you die to find out if you are going to heaven.  That is great news!  One of the great gifts that God offers us along wit …

Praying For Those in Authority

 
Pray for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. I Timothy 2:2

Real Praise

 
Come, everyone! Clap your hands! Shout to God with joyful praise! Psalm 47:1
