Be Real.
Be Loved.
Be One.

It’s not just a slogan, it’s our way of doing church. We are a church that is real in our worship and our authenticity, we are defined by our love for God and love for each other, and we are one family, walking out our journey together. We are Belvidere First Assembly of God, or as we like to call ourselves, B1.

Are You Called to Be With Us?

Here’s What We Believe
Icon label


We are light in a dark place. We will not confine that light inside the walls of our church, but will seek to shine it in our community, our schools, our homes and our lives.

(Romans 5:3-5)
Icon label


We are here because Christ paid the price for us. It is now us who must pay the price of surrender to the high call of Christ that we bring salvation to the lost and bring healing to the broken.

(II Corinthians 5:18-20)

Fellowship is richer than friendship. Here we seek to push and encourage each other in our walk for Christ. None of us has arrived, and we all could use some help on the journey. Following Christ is a team sport.

Matthew 28:19-20

We reach out to the world (Hope), to point them to Him (Redemption), so that we might walk together faithfully (Discipleship).

Who We Are

We believe the Bible is the inspired and authoritative Word of God. That there is one God, externally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We believe the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His death and resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His future return to this earth in power and glory.

Assemblies of God 16 Fundamental Truths

The Bible is our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. This Statement of Fundamental Truths is intended simply as a basis of fellowship among us (i.e., that we all speak the same thing, 1 Corinthians 1:10 [KJV/NIV]; Acts 2:42 [KJV/NIV]).

Pastor David Paul Smith

God has called our family to Belvidere so that we can be a place of light in between Rockford and Chicago. We moved here in 2015 following the call of God, and we are blessed to minister to a strong church community.

Your story matters to God. In fact, your life-changing story is a gift from God.

Great church home to many . Lots to offer for kids and adults. Classes and caring and great services. Fun Pastors and great times. Highly recommended for a faith orientated person seeking to know Jesus as your Lord and Savior.

The people are very friendly. It was a good service. Pastor David breaks down the verses so you can better understand.

This is the best church I’ve ever been to. They are so understanding and caring. The pastor and his wife are absolutely wonderful. And it’s always a powerful message every Sunday. If you’re looking for a new home Church, look no further.

Life Groups

Life Groups are small groups which meet during the week all over the local area. It’s a great way to build relationships, learn more about Jesus and develop your God-given gifts.
