At House of Praise, our vision is to make disciples (fully devoted followers of Jesus) through a process we call the Connect Model. This involves building your relationships to God, Church and Others.
What is the Connect Model?
Jesus Christ is Our Savior
It's all about Jesus. He was born of a virgin by the Holy Spirit. He died for our sins, rose from the dead and sits at the right hand of the Father. He is fully God and fully man.
There is One God, who exists in three distinguishable, but indivisible Persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Salvation by Grace Alone
Salvation is by God's grace alone and received through repentance and faith in Jesus. Accepting forgiveness through His sacrifice is the only way to heaven. Heaven can not be earned.
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Trinity. He indwells the believer at the moment of salvation. The Holy Spirit is active in the church today performing miracles and speaking to people.
The inspired word of God, written by the hands of men as they were inspired by the Holy Spirit. 66 inspired books.
Praise & Worship
We follow a Biblical pattern of praise that consists of singing, playing instruments, dancing, shouting, clapping hands, etc. Worship is our response to God's presence and is an integral part of any believer's life.
As God's disciples we are part of the universal church of Jesus Christ but we also believe that God desires for every believer to be part of a local assembly.
All believers should be baptized after conversion. By definition, baptism is a complete immersion in water as shown in scripture.
Heaven & Hell
All human beings are created with an eternal soul that will live beyond this life. Where that soul will reside after the death of the body will be heaven or hell.
The reality of the devil or Satan, which is the fallen angel Lucifer and in the eternal judgment of Satan and his fallen angel followers.
