With a rich history that can trace its roots back to the Maria Woodward-Etter movement in the Indianapolis area in the early 1900s, our church has a strong foundation based on the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the turn of the 19th century. Bro William Sowders preached at the Maria Woodward-Etter Tabernacle and from this early connection the foundation for what is now the Gospel Assembly Church in Indianapolis, Indiana was laid.
A number of Godly men have served the church in Indianapolis for over 80 years. We are not affiliated with any
specific denomination, but we are not independent of a broader fellowship. We believe in being led by the Holy Spirit, as God our Father knows exactly what each person has need of and can meet needs that are unknown to the mind of man. We believe there is a work to be done in this last day and are working to rebuild our church in order to be prepared for the restored working of a latter rain church in this Gentile age that is coming to a close.
Our church is not independent. We make the decision, by the mercy and grace of God, to consciously choose to blend our spirits, hearts, and attitudes with other churches that are working toward the same purpose. We are not held together by anything legal of this earth, but by a bond of love and commitment for a cause greater than ourselves.
It is this commitment that causes us to seek opportunities and ways to fellowship. Just as the early church we read of in the New Testament was bound together through a love and commitment to their sister assemblies, our church is also seeking to be bound together through these same commitments.
Together we are seeking God's perfect timing and will for His Gentile work in these last days.
Our Pastor and His Wife
Had you asked our pastor, Cullen Reed, a few short years ago if he would give up his 25 year career to become a full-time minister in a city he knew little about, his answer would have certainly been "no."
However, God had a plan that changed the course of his life. Having been raised in this fellowship from the age of 2 1/2 in Cincinnati, Ohio, God began dealing with him strongly in 2007 and in 2012 really began showing him that Indianapolis was a place he was to work.
In September 2014 he became the full-time pastor of the church. He left his secular job in March 2015 and is dedicated to full-time work as the church's pastor.
He and his wife, Susan, sold their home in Louisville, Kentucky where they had lived for 14 years and have settled into their home in Indianapolis.
