OUR DECLARATION OF FAITH OVER HOUSE OF PRAYER
In the name of Jesus, we release life in to the church. We speak and release the Zoe life of God into the church. Excited, enthusiastic life, the Zoe life of God. We call forth excited, happy, quality workers. Fully equipped and able. With the right heart, right attitude and that are led by the spirit workers. Able ministers of the Gospel, committed to the work of the ministry. In the name of Jesus, the spirit that is modeled at the House of Prayer is an accurate example of Christ. New people are coming to be a part of the church daily and we, by the wisdom of God, are able to plug them in and organize them to become a vital part. We communicate love to them, they feel accepted, and they feel at home. They are busy and fulfilled with their duties. When God draws them, they stay. People only leave the House of Prayer when God moves them. People at the House of Prayer love each other. The power of the Spirit always overcomes strife and division. Because of this, we all get along very well. Lifelong relationships are established. The overflowing life of the church is affecting our community. By faith we flow in abundance of revelation knowledge which causes an abundance of spiritual growth. People are being saved, healed, and delivered from every entrapment of darkness. The church from top to bottom has an abundance of wisdom, abundance of finances, abundance of workers and we are taking our city for Christ. We proclaim supernatural organization from the Lord, amazing organization that causes the church to perfectly flow together. Michigan will be impacted for Christ. The nation will be impacted and even the world will be impacted. Praise God!
