Why are we here?
In 2019, the Quad Cities was rated the 15th least churched city in America. So our VISION is BIG! We believe that in our lifetime we will see a massive shift from spiritual homelessness to a strong, undeniable sense of spiritual family in Rock Island and the Quad Cities! Our MISSION is to call prodigals home and adopt the spiritually homeless. Our heart is to "REST, LIVE, and WORK in a great House!"
At The House, we believe REST is the first thing Jesus offers. "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
Out of a place of REST, we learn to LIVE in Jesus as he lives within us. "So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith." Ephesians 3:17a
LIVE leads to WORK. "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9
We are a non-denominational Christian church, sent and planted by New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO and partnered with ARC.
We believe we should major on the "majors" and minor on the "minors" (Mark 9:38-41). So we find the middle ground or "third way" (Romans 14:1-3) with many hot-button subjects, pointing to and pursuing Jesus (Philippians 3:12-14), and how the Holy Spirit unites us as one (Ephesians 4:4-6).
Being connected to the historical and global church, we begin with the foundational beliefs found in the Nicene Creed.
