mission statement

Building People, Building Families And Building Our Community Into The Image of Christ.

Building People.
Therefore, encourage one another and BUILD each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Building Families.
Love binds us together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:14

Building Our Community.
If MY PEOPLE who are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sins, and I will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

what we believe

Carpenter’s House believes that advancing God’s Kingdom doesn’t come through new ways of doing church, but through the ancient way — faithful preaching and contextualizing the unchanging gospel within a changing culture. Carpenter’s House teaches faith in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, as the only way to eternal life.
