Who we are
At House of Prayer, we strive to live out the mission Christ gave us to
make disciples of all nations, and we strive to do that by BRINGING
THE KINGDOM wherever we are. It’s easy to come up with a mission,
because Jesus gave it to us already. We have contextualized that mission
into language that we feel expresses our heart. Our mission with you and
any other person who calls House of Prayer their home is that you would
live a life of Jesus living through you. Or, more simply stated, that you
would live the Life.
House of Prayer
These are the foundational core values and beliefs that
everything at House of Prayer is built on.

What we believe
that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and without mistakes as originally written. It is the complete revelation of His will for salvation and the only unfailing rule of faith and practice for the Christian life. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21; John 17:17)
in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and that these three are co-eternal and of equal dignity and power. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 13:14; see also 1 Corinthians 8:6; Colossians 2:9; Acts 5:3-4)
in the deity of Jesus Christ; His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His substitutionary death on the cross; His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His personal, imminent return. (John 1:1; 14; 18; Luke 1:35; Romans 3:24-26; 4:25; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Philippians 2:5-8; 1 Timothy 2:5; Isaiah 59:1-2; Romans 6:23; Romans 1:20-24; Ephesians 2:1-3; Psalm 139:13-16; Isaiah 44:2; 49:5; Jeremiah 1:4-5)
that man was created by and for God; that by man's disobeying God, every person incurred spiritual death, which is separation from God, and physical death as a consequence; and that all people are sinners by nature and practice. (Genesis 1:27; 2:17; 3:19; Isaiah 59:1-2; Romans 6:23; Romans 1:20-24; Ephesians 2:1-3; Psalm 139:13-16; Isaiah 44:2; 49:5; Jeremiah 1:4-5)
that Christ died for our sins and that all who believe in Him are declared righteous because of His sacrificial death and are, therefore, in right relationship with God (Acts 13:38-39; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 1:4-5; 2:8-10)
in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling all believers and thus enabling and empowering the life and ministry of the believer. (John 16:7-11; John 3:8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 13; John 14:16-17; Ephesians 4:30; 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:19)
in the bodily resurrection of everyone who has lived, the everlasting life with God for those in right relationship with God, and the everlasting punishment of those who have rejected God's forgiveness in His Son. (Luke 16:19-26; 23:43; 1 Corinthians 15:42-44; 2 Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:23; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9; Revelation 20:11-15)
Prayer is one of the ways for Christians to know God intimately and personally. Moreover, it is in prayer that we participate with God in what He is doing on earth. We discern the heart of God and add our "yes" to His Word and work. Prayer is the engine of ministry at the House of Prayer church. Every week there are prayer meetings in the to bring opportunities for corporate prayer.
We believe that the church is one big family, spanning the generations. Moreover, discipleship is a life-long journey of following Christ together, being formed as the people of God. House of Prayer Church is committed to each generation and every stage of life, from exploring the Bible with children to finding community as a single to leading discussions about God's faithfulness with grandparents.
