Present, Provide, Pursue and Perfect


Our Story


Emanuelu Assembly of God launched on September 14, 2014 with the

Samoan District of the Assemblies of God, USA with the goal of planting a

Samoan church in the Springfield, MO area. The service was held at the

Assemblies of God Retirement Community Maranatha Village,

Springfield Missouri, located on 233 E. Norton Rd. Springfield, MO 65803.

The desire to plant a Samoan church in the Springfield Area, Headquarters of

the Assemblies of God, was birthed out of the collaboration between

Rev. Steve Anoa’and the Samoan District officials.


Unfortunately, because of only a handful of Samoans residing in the

Springfield area at the time, the leadership and constituents

agreed to bring the church under the direction

and supervision of the Southern Missouri District of the

Assemblies of God. Emanuelu Assembly of God has since Incorporated as

Emanuel Assembly and is now registered as a place of worship in

"good standing" with the State of Missouri.


We have been called the "Islander Church" of Springfield, but since our

services are held in English, our goal is to spread

the gospel beyond the islander community.

Our desire is to be an extension of God’s Hand to the Springfield

area and beyond! In June of 2015, we moved to a new location at 3000 N.

Grant Avenue at the old Central Bible College, Zimmeran Building. God has

opened another door, to which we believe strategically places us at the

"Center of His Will," at 819 E. Dale St. Springfield MO 65803.


We are very excited for our new location because it gives us a place of our

own to grow as the Lord directs and empowers! 


 On February 26, 2017 Emanuel Assembly of God officially became a General
Council Affiliated Church through the Southern MO District of the Assemblies
of God, almost three years after it was first planted in
North Springfield! 
 On May 28, 2017 God blessed us again!
He gave us a new property at
1905 N. Yates Ave. Springfield MO 65803.
We had already outgrown the Dale St. property.

 The Bible tells us to “stir up one another to love and good works, not

neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one

another, and all the more as we see the Day drawing near”(Hebrews 10:24-25).


We pray that you would consider joining us this coming Sunday as we come
together to bring honor to our Heavenly Father, worship Jesus Christ our
LORD and Savior, experience the move of the Holy Spirit, and strengthen
the inner-person, to face the issues of life within ourselves, in our families
and in our community!
