We are a spirit filled congregation that seeks to share God's love in such a way that people exchange ordinary living for an exciting, extraordinary life through the power of Jesus Christ. It is our desire to pursue God's Presence through lively, Apostolic worship; to connect with each individual and incorporate them in God's Family through fellowship; to education God's People through teaching from the Word of God to become a true disciple of Jesus Christ.
The Pentecostals of Fort Worth was birthed as a "daughter" church of Dallas First Church in December 2002. We began in a small apartment clubhouse with services on Sunday morning and Tuesday evening.
In March 2003, we purchased and moved to 6605 Silver Saddle Road. During our tenure there, we renovated three times to meet the growing needs of our congregation.
In 2014 we were blessed to purchase 7 acres located at 10264 Westpoint Blvd, Fort Worth TX 76108. Today we have a 14,000 multi-purpose facility that houses the various ministries of The Pentecostals of Fort Worth.
We offer classes for all ages, enthusiastic praise and worship, an anointed choir, and the powerful word of God.
God is doing great things and we are thankful to have the opportunity to serve in the Region of Fort Worth.

Pastor Michael Watts born in North Carolina, but arrived in Texas as fast as he could, at the age 2. Who would have known except God, that Fort Worth would hold a special place in his heart. At the age of 22, after finding an altar of repentance, he received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and was baptized in Jesus Name. God miraculously delivered him from addictions of this world and he has never been the same. Working under the direction of his first Pastor, Rev. W. S. Fielding, Pastor Watts became very involved in evangelism and outreach. From Bus Ministry to teaching Bible Studies, to working around the Church, he was actively involved daily in promoting the Kingdom of God. In 1999 God allowed him the opportunity to become full time staff at Apostolic World Center.
Our First Lady - Gwen Watts was born in Okmulgee, Oklahoma but moved to the east coast at a very young age. Prior to moving to Fort Worth in July 1999 when she and Pastor Watts married, she lived in Frederick MD for 13 years. While there, she worked on staff as Church Secretary and Pastor's personal assistant at Apostolic Lighthouse, with Pastor Michael Mangold.
Receiving the Holy Spirit at the young age of 8, she is third generation Pentecostal and has a rich heritage from which to draw from for experience. She currently serves as Church Administrator and Music Director.
Two years later, God directed the path of Pastor Watts and his family to Dallas First Church, where he became part of the staff under the direction of Pastor Tom Foster. As Executive Pastor for DFC, he was very involved in the day to day operation of the Church office, as well as oversaw the construction of the building that now houses Dallas First Church. In February 2002, in a revival service, God spoke through Pastor Foster in prophecy that Bro. Watts and his family would start a daughter work in Fort Worth. After many miles on their vehicle and many appointments to see buildings to house this work, The Pentecostals of Fort Worth was born, December 1, 2002.
The desire of Pastor Watts' heart is to assist people in reaching their dreams and visions, build them and impact their lives with biblical principles, turn they can impact the world around them.
