The First Pentecostal United Holy Church of America sustained a rich and enduring legacy that has endeared it to the hearts of its members, officers, and pastors, both past and present. Reverend Rebecca James Mackey was the visionary for a church on the corner of Wilson Road and Cypress Street. Nothing stood on this property, but by faith, one woman of God saw what could be there! In spite of great obstacles, she was sure she was in God’s will. In 1945, with a small band of saints, she established First Pentecostal United Holy Church.
Since the inception of First Pentecostal United Holy Church, there has been a display of God’s love and grace. It continues to be a bright beacon of light and hope to mankind, pointing men and women to the Lord Jesus Christ on whom the Church was founded and organized. Reverend Mackey was true to her vision.
In June, 2010, Elder Donzell Jones Sr. became the Pastor of First Pentecostal United Holy Church. He was accompanied by his wife, La’Kisha, two sons, Donzell, Jr., Emmanuel, and one daughter, Destiny. Pastor Jones enjoys studying, teaching, and preaching the word of God.
The church has been blessed by the mighty hands of God.
We will continue to give thanks and praise to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
