A Pentecostal, Trinitarian, Bible-Believing, and Evangelistic Church
Statement of Faith
During his teenage years he was an angry rebel who sought discipline and direction for his life by enlisting in the Army. Despite receiving a college education, a military commission and completing Army Ranger School, he could not overcome the sin that controlled his life. In 1991 he reluctantly visited a Bible study at an evangelical church where he encountered a spiritual power and truth that he could not deny. He gave his life to Jesus Christ and eventually left the military to train for the ministry. He was ordained in 1997, pioneered a church in Honolulu, HI, and has preached crusades and revivals all over the world. He accepted the call to pastor the Oceanside church in November 2006.
Our Essential Values:
We embrace our mission as a church to work together to present each member a mature disciple of Jesus Christ and our vision of a local church engaged and active in the work of world evangelism. To accomplish our mission and vision we have identified five essentials that when exercised produce spiritual growth. We call these the Five Essential G's:
GATHER - An invitation into an intimate, faith-building Christian fellowship - "I promise to worship at the Potter’s House regularly and to share my life with others in this church family.” Hebrews 10:24-25
GLORIFY - A life that is a reflection of Jesus... 24/7 - "I promise to love God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength and to love my neighbor as myself." Mark 12:29-31
GRAPPLE - A sincere and prayerful commitment to the Lordship of Christ over my entire life - "I promise courageously to learn to follow Jesus as Lord of every area of my life.” Luke 6:46; Luke 9:23-25
GIVE - A joyful dedication of myself and my money to the cause of the Kingdom - "I promise to be obedient to God’s claim on my money and my talents for His work at the Potter’s House.” I Cor. 16:2; 2 Cor. 9:7
GO - A resolve to break out of my comfort zone and into the world with the love and redemptive power of Jesus Christ - "I promise to stretch myself to reach others with God’s love, truth and salvation.” Matthew 28:18-20
REVIVE, SURVIVE and THRIVE! This is our calling in the Last Days...
