We have a very specific message at the Father’s House. It can be summed up in one word: Jesus. We believe Jesus Himself is perfect theology. He is the perfect Son to the perfect Father. We believe a Christian should be a ‘mini Christ’: someone who takes Jesus’ teaching seriously, not just in word but in action.
Jesus’ words challenge us to the core. They teach us to give sacrificially, to forgive unreservedly, to submit and follow even when it’s tough. Just as Jesus laid his life down out of love for us, we too are learning to give our lives away for the sake of those around us. As we put Jesus’ words into practice and imitate the way he lived, the Holy Spirit empowers us to become more and more like him.
We've distilled our message into ten main themes, which you can scroll through below.
MOST RECENT VIDEO SERMON:
"RAISING UP SONS AND DAUGHTERS IN A FATHERLESS GENERATION"
In this series, we hope to inspire leaders in raising up a new generation of sons and daughters through the case study of the Father's House right here in Oroville, California.
We share stories, insights, lessons learned and practical blueprints developed over the past 20 years in the trenches leading broken people. We describe the ongoing transformation of Oroville, share testimonies from former addicts who are now pastoral and marketplace leaders, discuss the challenges presented by millennial culture, and demonstrate how a small inner-city church can support a team of 50 staff, interns and students in their 20s, 30s and early 40s in full-time ministry.
