AWC was founded in 1997 when pastor Jerry O'Neal and wife Gloria responded to the call of God to plant a church while traveling from Pensacola, FL to tour the great Alaskan wilderness. Thanks to their many years of labor and sacrifice the church was able to purchase and renovate a reprobated property and turn it in to a sanctuary for the Lord. During this period the Lord was able to use the O'Neal's to reach out to a young local striving to overcome addiction and lawlessness. That same young man, Pastor Chad Scott, now leads the small thriving family congregation along with his wife and three young children. With a strong faith in the miracle working power in the name of Jesus, this church has seen its share of healing, signs and wonders. A notable miracle occurred when the church drummer's eye sight was restored by the prayer of faith after over a decade of complete blindness. We believe that God is in the miracle business still today. We pray that as you encounter the supernatural power of His presence that you would become the next chapter in this miraculous story.
