The faithful preaching and teaching of God's Word has always been a deep core value here at Father's House. Feeding the flock of God is a Kingdom mandate that is central to who we are and what we do in all of our gatherings.
We place the highest value on people knowing the great truths of the Scriptures. Therefore, the scriptural disciplines of meditation and study are greatly encouraged among our fellowship.
The Word of God must not simply be heard or read, it must also be put into practice. We endeavor, by means of example, relevant preaching and training, to encourage the church on the “how-tos” of living the Christian life. It is our conviction that Christianity “goes home.” The Scriptures are to make a positive difference in our marriages, family life, on the job, and even as citizens. We become doers of the Word in the trenches of real life.
Every relationship is experiential, including our relationship with God. The Christian walk is well-balanced if it is comprised of doctrine, practice and experience. However, if our Christian walk is only about learning the Bible, it is reduced to a “cerebral” Christian living. Likewise, if it is only about following a certain set of practices, the faith becomes “sweaty.”
Jesus is the God of the personal encounter. Throughout His earthly sojourn, Jesus constantly encountered people, touching each at his or her point of need. We believe He continues to do so today. He is the same yesterday, today and forever, therefore we content for the experience of His presence in our gatherings and the healing touch of His hand to our bodies.
