What We Believe

His House is a Bible-based ministry.  We believe the original manuscripts of the Bible are perfect, inerrant, written Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16).  While we come from a variety of locations, backgrounds, and beliefs, we are convinced that studying the Bible together can actually bring us closer together and closer to the God who authored it (Isaiah 55:11).  Therefore, we strive to base our beliefs on what the Bible actually says.  We encourage students to pursue the truth of Scripture, to question and check common teachings and concepts against it, and to bring their life in line with it.

We believe that God is both holy and loving.  His perfect holiness brings wrath against sin and punishment for it.  This punishment is spiritual death and an eternity separated from God’s presence.  However, God’s perfect love brings both mercy and grace-God himself paid our penalty by sending Jesus to take our punishment.  None of us can earn God’s forgiveness and we certainly don’t deserve it.  Still, He loves us and freely offers His forgiveness to anyone who will accept His gift (1 Corinth. 15:1-8John 3:161 Peter 3:18).

Students must:

    • hear the Good news about Jesus (Rom. 10:17)
    • believe in Jesus (Mark 16:16)
    • repent of sin and turn to God (Acts 17: 30-31)
    • confess that Jesus is Lord (Rom. 8:8-10)
    • be baptized in Christ (Acts 2:37-38)
    • and continue to pursue a relationship with God by studying His Word, praying, taking communion, and to fellowship with other believers (Acts 2:42)
