Welcome to the Albany First Church of God!

The congregation of the Albany First Church of God is so pleased you came by to find out more about us! Whether you have known God for decades or are just now beginning to seek Him, you are welcome here. Our hope is that if you do not have a church home, you will join our church family in worship. Our prayer is that if you do not know Christ, He will make Himself known to you. As part of this community, we'd like to invite you to come and worship with us on any Sunday. We have active children's and teen's programs, offer courses on marriage and family life, and we enjoy examining the Bible to discover the purposes God has for our lives. If we can be of any service to you, please do not hesitate to call or drop by our offices.
