Core Values

Intimacy with Jesus
Intimacy with Jesus is our ultimate mandate and reward.

 

24/7 Worship and Prayer
With an unending chorus of worship and ceaseless prayer, we desire to minister to the Lord day and night and to cry out for “speedy justice” (Luke 18) from one geographical location. In essence, our desire is to move beyond normal prayer meetings to inspire and nurture a culture of prayer (Isaiah 56:7).

 

The Scriptures: the Word of God
The Bible is the eternal (Matthew 24:35), infallible (Psalm 12:6), unhindered (2 Timothy 2:9), and inspired (2 Timothy 3:16) Word of God and as such, we desire to search out the Scriptures to better understand them and apply them to our lives.

 

Governmental Intercession
Interceding “for kings and all those in authority” (1 Timothy 2:1-3) is a priority. We desire to see the transformation of our governments to reflect the Kingdom of God that is built on righteousness and justice.

 

Nazirite Consecration/Fasted Lifestyle
Like John the Baptist, we desire to live a fasted lifestyle because of our devotion to the Bridgegroom, Jesus. Thus, we voluntarily refuse the legitimate pleasures of this world (Number 6) for the extreme pleasure of knowing God (Psalm 16). This passion for Jesus is born not of legalism, but out of love.

 

Community Living
To us, community living is not an option. We intentionally live in community because we desire to be one in heart and mind (Acts 4:32) in our pursuit of God.

 

Covenant Relationships
The notion of covenant and covenant relationships is a profound Scriptural value that we desire to walk out within the community. Our relationships, then, are not merely humanistic friendships, but God-centered and God-ordained.

 

Prophetic Ministry/Dreams
We desire to be a “company of prophets” who seek to be friends that the Lord can share his secret counsel with (Amos 3:7, Genesis 18:17, Joel 2:28). We value the prophetic because it enhances our relationship with the Lord and because it is a helpful and useful guide.

 

Spiritual Influence through Aggressive Prayer and Fasting
The Scriptures make it clear that “…the kingdom of Heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force” (Matthew 11:12). To that end, we engage in aggressive prayer and intercession to gain “air supremacy” (Daniel 10) for the in-break of the Holy Spirit and societal reformation.

 

Generational Transfer
In the last days, the Lord promised to send the Spirit of Elijah who would “turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the hearts of the children to the fathers” (Malachi 4:5-6). Thus, we are committed to the principle of generational transfer through fathering and discipleship.

 

Holy Activism
Because of the urgency of the hour, we believe that the House of Prayer needs to be a hotbed of holy activism by “putting feet” to our prayers.
