The first church was established in 1912. Around the year of 1922, the Pentecostal group was formed in Vilnius, the capital city, which became the basis for the Evangelical Faith Christian Church of Vilnius established in 1928. In 1991, freedom came to the country. In 1992, missionaries came. They now have 20 churches, 10 mission points. In 1995, with the help of AG, Vilnius Theological College was established. Two hundred ten people have completed Bible school education. They are blessed with young and well educated pastors.
In Lithuania there are three Teen Challenge rehab centers, one re-entry center, and one prevention center for youth and children. Also, there are two day care centers for children with problems. A campground for camps, retreats and conferences, is under construction with the help of AG resources and teams. The campground is open for summer camps, which already blessed hundreds of kids and youth, and families.
Three missionary couples and one single missionary are serving in Lithuania. They pray that God sends revival. Their emphasis is prayer. Lithuania is a 90% Catholic country. Their wish is that cooperation continues among the fellowship.
Union of Pentecostal Churches of Lithuania is associated member of World Assemblies of God Fellowship, member of Pentecostal European fellowship and International Assemblies of Christians of Evangelical Faith.
