Pastor’s Notes

Doomsday Response

Seems that I should get in on the action. Acts 12 Peter is sleeping off a few bad days. It is true the end of the world as he knows it. A best friend and work mate has just been beheaded. He is deep in the bottom of the prison himself waiting  another religious holiday to end so he himself… Read more →

Dear Friend of the House of Prayer It is with true excitement that I am writing you about something super exciting that we have planned just for you. A few weeks ago we celebrated a wonderful Easter season with a wonderful drama. The most exciting part of the drama was watching the staff of IHOPM become a theatrical team.  Each… Read more →

Message for April 30, May 1

Who we are is Who you are really! Mat. 13 – The Parable of the Sower is not what happens with soil that cannot be improved but the expected results of unattended soil.

We can fix it.

The thing you have wanted the most has taken your liveliness and the heart beat of the Church from us. An Englishman I know grew up in a very small village in Yorkshire.

Not a Program but a Process

That’s a life changing, eternity-impacting difference. It’s the difference between someone saying to you, “Excuse me, but are you by any chance a Christian?” and “WOW! You sound just like Jesus. Who taught you that?” His Word, repeatedly running what you’ve heard through your mind eventually His thoughts become your thoughts and His ways become your ways. And then you… Read more →

Religion of Relationship

Those who want to impress people by means of the flesh are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ. Not even those who are circumcised keep the law, yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your circumcision in the… Read more →
