“Even them I will bring to My holy mountain, and will make them joyful in My house of prayer. For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.” (Isaiah 56:7)
The verse from Isaiah 56:7 was spoken by the Holy Spirit to the heart of Lynndene Way after her first visit to Alexandria in 1984. She carried that word in her heart for several years until the time came to establish House of Prayer in 1986.
The vision of House of Prayer can be summed up in four words:
Pray – become a house of prayer individually and corporately
Reach people with the Good News of Jesus Christ
Teach and equip people to be obedient disciples of Jesus
Send disciples into the world fulfilling Jesus’ command to go and preach the gospel, heal the sick, and proclaim the Kingdom of God
House of Prayer is a thriving local Spirit-filled family church, which is apostolic and prophetic in nature. The characteristics of an apostolic and prophetic church include: building, establishing, and strengthening the Church by hearing, teaching, and proclaiming the written Word of God, the Bible, and words the Holy Spirit speaks.
House of Prayer Church believes in sending and receiving ministers and ministries. Our goal is to fulfill the great commission given by Jesus to go into all the world, winning souls and making disciples. By the grace of God, we endeavor to minister the living Word of God to people in the power of the Holy Spirit. Our desire is to be a pure people of prayer, a people of praise and power, bringing salvation, healing, and deliverance to all people because of God’s great love for mankind.
We pray that God’s Kingdom will be established in our lives and on the earth. To that end, we are committed to building the Kingdom of God and the body of Christ in Alexandria and the world.
