1982 welcomed the start of what continues to be the passion and heart beat of Pastor Paul Thangiah, the birth of the Full Gospel Assembly of God Church. What started as a humble beginning, of just 3 people, has turned into an ocean of people today. The zeal and enthusiasm came under much opposition from starvation to discouragement and being let down by people who promised to stand by till the end. What started in a small rented building, in Indiranagar Bangalore, saw an overflowing of all the rooms, and this took the Church to look for a bigger accommodation.
While negotiating the rent with the owner, he looked at Pastor Paul and said, “We do not want any sound in this place” to which Pastor Paul explained, “We get peace with expressing ourselves aloud since we are a full fledged Pentecostal Church.” It was reluctance in the beginning but later the owner loved to hear the services from the confines of his house. This building was on the main 100 feet road. Slowly the services increased with the thrust in evangelism, there were more people attending and again an over flow in all the services.
