What We Believe

We believe in the Triune God, The Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe the Bible is God’s revealed Word to mankind.
We believe salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
We believe that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are available today.

The acronym ACTS defines our purpose.

FHC-squareA is for the atmosphere of expectation. We believe that, without God, we are nothing and therefore we desperately need Him! Therefore, we hunger to see God move in our midst on a daily basis and desire to live in a place of expectation that God will bring His Kingdom to earth!

C is for catching people.  The world and the people in it are broken, fallen and caught in sin.  We want to see those that come through our doors to be caught by the love of God.

T is for transformation.  People are transformed by truth.  We preach the word of God.  We are emboldened and filled with the Holy Spirit.  As we get transformed by the truth of God’s word and his Spirit, we are then able to begin to help others in their transformation to grow in Christ, bearing good fruit.

S is for serving and sending.  We are His workmanship, created for good works in Christ.

 


About Fathers House

There are many ways of doing church. There are churches that are traditional in their approach, with time honored inspiration passed on through the decades and in some cases, centuries.  Some are “purpose-driven” churches that only do things that seem to fit the overall vision and mission of the church.  Others are more driven by the personality and charisma of the pastor.  Some churches believe in the “seeker friendly” model in which everything is tailored to try to make seekers feel comfortable.  All of these models have merit and have been used by God to help people.

While all of these methods have benefits, we believe in what we call the “presence-driven” church.  By the presence-driven church, we mean that through our worship, we hope to attract the very presence of God Himself.  We spend a good amount of our time singing praises to the Lord.  Ephesians 5:18-19 tells us to “not be drunk with wine, but be filled with the Spirit, singing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs…”  The Lord inhabits the praise of His people and there is something that happens when two or more are gathered in His name, worshiping and enjoying Him.  We like to teach down to earth, helpful, biblical messages that offer practical insights that apply to real life here on earth while remembering that we are citizens of heaven, our real home.

We believe that the Bible is Gods Word and that Jesus Christ is THE way, the truth and the life and no man gets to the Father except through Him.  We believe that the gifts of the Spirit mentioned in I Corinthians 12 are still available to the church today and we have seen God heal people mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

We would love to have you join us Sundays and or Wednesdays.  We realize that church should be for everyone: so we have a full nursery, childrens church, middle and high school groups, a college-age group, various home groups, womens and mens ministries, and more

We dress casually here and try to maintain a relaxed atmosphere, but if you want to dress up in your Sunday best, that is fine with us!  We hope most of all that you know that God loves you and when you visit you will not only sense His love but the love of those around you too!
