Christian House of Praise is a place of worship, where we come to give God glory, honor and praise. We believe that the bible is given by inspiration of God and has supreme authority in our lives. We believe that the words of the bible are spirit and life and it has relevance to us today. We are prepared listeners who come to hear and obey what the Spirit has to say to the church through the man of God.
We believe that every member is an important part of the church body and has to do his part in order to feel a part.
Our ministry assignment at Christian House of Praise Ministries is to focus on building big people and not building a big church. We are a church for all people and believe in ministering to the family, as well as singles in every area of their lives.
Christian House of Praise mission is to bring purpose and promise into the hearts of believers, as well as hope and help naturally and spiritually to the lost sinner and those in need. Our mandate first and foremost is to preach the good news of the kingdom of God, accompanied by the Holy Spirit confirming the word with miracles signs and wonders. The teaching is with wisdom, authority, revelation and power. According to Isaiah 50:4, “The lord God has given me a tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary”. Our ministry assignment at Christian House of Praise is to take individuals and families to the Next Level in God and in life.
2 Corinthians 3:18 “But we all with open face beholding as a glass the glory of the lord are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the spirit of the lord”. In this end time dispensation God has taken Pastors L.T. & Angela Whittley's life experiences and years of ministry, in order to embrace the latter end time move of God that takes His people to a higher dimension into the Next Level of Faith, Relationship and ultimately arriving to the highest level the Kingdom of Heaven.
