Prayer Intercessory Ministry
We would not be where we are today without prayer. Jesus who is our example tells us to pray. He did not say if you pray in Matthew 6:5; Jesus says, “When you pray.” The purpose of the prayer intercessory ministry is to actively encourage and promote prayer within the life of the believer moment by moment and within the life of the church. By being open and responsive to the working of the Holy Spirit, we pray that God’s love, guidance and healing power would be released for the benefit of His people and to His glory. Prayer is the key that unlock any door to God; our unsparing God places no limit on our praying because there is no limit placed on His giving; without prayer there is no ministry.
“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise” (Proverbs 11:30). We at Christ Centered House of God believe in ushering souls into the Kingdom of God; because souls winning is at the very heart of God. That’s why Jesus came “He came to seek and to save the lost.” In our soul -winning ministry men/women will be taught that there must be seven qualifications possessed by those who win souls for Christ. These qualification are: (1) holiness of character, (2) full surrender, (3) spiritual experience with God, (4) daily consecration, (5) humility, (6) living faith, (7) unction of the Holy Spirit. Thus, it is very important for us (each one) to examine ourselves as a soul winner and ask: Do I possess holiness of character ? Am I fully surrendered? Do I have a vital spiritual experience? Do I make a daily consecration? Am I truly humble? Do I possess a living faith that will draw others to Jesus? Do I have the unction of the Spirit? We must live the truth we say to others; through: (1) knowledge, (2) sincerity – (3) Earnestness, (4) Love, (5) Tenderness, (6) Wisdom, and (7) Understanding. We must examine ourselves and ask: Do I have an accurate knowledge of the truth? Am I truly sincere? Am I deeply in earnest? Do I have a love for souls? Do I have a tender heart? Do I impart wisdom and understanding when dealing with people? The Lord Himself teach us what we ought to be and do as successful soul winners.

Membership Training Ministry
When someone is new to a church, they don’t know who anyone are and have an interest in figuring out who’s who. They want to know who the pastor is, who any associate pastors are and who the leaders and/or decision makers are. Our membership training ministry will help them to associate with church leadership and increases their familiarity and comfort levels – which ultimately helps them to connect. At Christ Centered House of God we welcome every visitors; we know that all visitors are potentials members – we aspire to give them an accepting loving environment. However, visitors need help taking that step toward membership by providing us with relevant information about themselves. This is where our church membership class can help! At Christ centered House of God we would like to give you a better understanding of the church’s history, why it exists, what we believe, and what we hope to achieve. It’s our hope that in our new members class; it will give you the benefit of interacting by introducing yourself to others and helping you ease into our church community. Here is a few sample questions of what we will ask: are you a believer in Jesus, how long have you been attending church and why you chose to join our church?
Whatever we need from God we can ask Him for it. The Bible is God’s divine instruction, addressing every area of life. A healthy singles ministry will elevate the Word of God as the primary tool for spiritual nourishment, encouragement, correction and life transformation by applying Matthew 6:33 as a principle verse to the believers life. At Christ Centered House of God, we understand that single people are important members of the body of Christ. We also believe that a healthy singles ministry produces healthy marriages (sorry, no personal guarantees!). Yes, the potential of finding a spouse is a very real possibility in a Christ-centered community. When singles are living in Christian community, this could be a natural outcome. The purpose of our singles ministry is then to teach singles to focus on the teaching of the Bible. Without the truths of God’s Word, we are left with mere opinions based on our own thoughts and experiences, others opinion and human reasoning. Our singles ministry will teach you to test everything against the word of God and how to apply God’s word to your life each day.
