Matthew & Alisha Castleberry
Matthew and Alisha are passionate about delivering the message of the gospel to this generation and are excited to get plugged in at Bearden. They have been married for nearly seven years and have two beautiful children, Levi who is five and two year old Avery.
Prior to joining the First Assembly family, Matthew served as the manager of a non-profit furniture store in Sepulpa, Oklahoma for two years. Also, Matthew and Alisha helped in several youth ministries across Texas.

Our Schedule

10:45 am – Morning Worship
6:00 pm – Evening Worship
6:00 pm – B Kids
6:00 PM – Forward Students
B Kids is a great ministry geared toward developing children from the ages of two to eleven. Each meeting is filled with educational and creative activities as well as Biblically sound teachings, providing a fun and safe environment for them to discover all God created them to be.  B Kids meet each Sunday morning and midweek service.
Forward Students are passionate about their pursuit of God. Meeting various times each week, Forward Students grow together as a group and in their individual walks with the Lord. Each Wednesday Forward Students meet for their 7pm service complete with food, games, worship, and the presentation of the gospel. We would love for you to be a part of the movement forward with us.



In July of 1921, during an old-fashioned brush arbor meeting, a Pentecostal revival uncured and our Spirit-filled church was born. This church has a rich heritage built on the people seeking nothing but more of God in their lives, homes, and community. 

Our founding pastor, Rev. Zack Launius, ushered in a culture of revival. The community had a brand new passion for the things of God thanks to the presentation of full gospel preaching, paired with heartfelt worship and powerful altar services. People in the community of Bearden put their faith into action and generously gave donations of time, talents, and funds in an effort to facilitate that culture.

Today, because of the generosity of those who laid the groundwork, First Assembly exists as a constant reminder to the community it resides in of God’s divine providence and his grace towards them. The church is still alive and well, impacting the lives of every individual they encounter, growing as a community of believers, and stirring up revival in their own lives.


At First Assembly, we make God’s Word priority.  We pray that as you listen the Word of God penetrates your heart and ministers to you in your place of need.
