The House of Prayer began in 2005 as a “Prayer Room” and mission base comprised of passionate followers of Christ pursuing spiritual change in the atmosphere of our city, state, nation and world through worship, fasting, prayer, and outreach. We have since grown and transitioned into a local church body with those same goals, while still housing and facilitating a prayer room dynamic. We endeavor to represent all the generations and stand up for the generations yet to come.

We place high value on community, prayer and relationship (CPR), believing that it in this context that fruitful Kingdom ministry is best accomplished. We corporately desire and seek to operate in the authority of the Holy Spirit in all dimensions of prayer, spiritual warfare, prophetic worship and intercession, signs and wonders, hospitality and the pursuit of justice in the earth through acts of service and mercy, both locally and globally.

We desire to equip people to experience the transforming power of Gods love as well as to be agents of transformation to those around them. We are on a journey to grow in Love, meekness and revelation. We strongly emphasize the First and greatest commandment to love the Lord with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength, and the second, to love our neighbor as ourselves. Although we are far from perfect we are following the perfect leader, Christ Jesus and believe that He is our great reward.
