Who We Are

THIS HOUSE IS HOME

We are not just inviting people to a service, we are welcoming them home. God is fashioning a family, one son and daughter at a time.

THIS HOUSE HOPES

We believe that the gospel really is GOOD news. What is in our future is better than what is in our past.

THIS HOUSE BUILDS

We are in the business of building whole people, strong families, a vibrant church, and a prosperous community. Healthy things grow.

THIS HOUSE WORSHIPS

The original design of mankind is to give glory to God. When all is said and done, all that matters is worship.

THIS HOUSE GIVES

Wild, reckless, bet-the-farm generosity is a mark of the church. Our giving is a reflection of our trust; we cannot out give God.

THIS HOUSE IS FILLED

The Holy Spirit hasn’t changed. He still gives, speaks, leads, teaches and comforts. We want everything that God has promised us and not an ounce less.

THIS HOUSE IS CENTERED

Our preaching, our practice, and our purpose are determined not by trends, but by the Word of God.

Our Mission 

Gathering to Christ

Restoring to wholeness

Releasing to purpose


Our History

In 1975 House of the Lord began as a bible study in the home of Howard Hundley in Furport, with Ken Arthur leading the study. Many people of all generations were drawn to the simple fellowship, dynamic teaching, passionate worship and the magnificent presence of God! It soon became known as “The Furport Community Sunday School”. 

As the church grew and people were saved, baptized, discipled and added to the church it then became known as “Furport Church of the Body”.

In 1980, a dream began to grow in the hearts of the leaders and congregation of establishing a place where their children could be educated but also taught Christian principles. The church was given ten acres in Oldtown by Rob & Marti Roborough. In the spring of 1980 they broke ground for a multipurpose building to use as a school and a church. 

So here we are! It is our desire to continue the vision of our church founders. Simple fellowship, dynamic teaching, passionate worship and the magnificent presence of God!
