Hello, we are overly excited to have you here!
Interestingly we are not just a group of people who gather weekly to worship, praise and pray but we are a family church. And as a family church, we dive deep into the truth of the gospel, applying faith in all that concerns us and express love to each other, this way we are drawn to care for one another. As the name implies, we are a community of old and young people – children inclusive.
How do we apply faith? Take a look at what is happening around the world in this period of pandemic. Before now, you may have been going through difficult times in your life yet when you take a step outside God brings something your way that stirs up your faith in Him. But with a close look at how the whole world became sick, it is quite difficult to find peace within and without and at this point the church becomes the only place where believers and even non-believers’ yanks strength from. The word of God has been our daily guide and through wisdom sessions every Tuesday we are being reminded of the promises of God and how relevant it is to hold onto our believes, because such times are part of the storms of life and will soon pass away.
Teaching the word is incomplete, if people around us cannot witness the life of Christ in us, and as we have been admonished to love one another, sometime in April 2020 in a bid to extend a helping hand to humanity, Pastor Rich Aghahowa distributed 100 box of rice and 100 loaves of bread to 100 families not minding if they are believers or unbelievers, every Sunday until the lockdown was relaxed. The Christian journey is more understood when you can identity with persons who are living examples of the life Christ lived.
What should you expect from us as a family church?
Full expression of the love of God by: constant praise and worship, hearing of the word through dynamic preaching, care and support, guidance and counselling, intense prayer and demonstration of the power of God.
We organize a list of activities like family visitations, youth activities and home cell to connect with members and people within the community but due to the Covid-19 pandemic everything has been on halt except for Sunday services and weekly activities.
Distance is not a barrier to being a part of this family as our social media accounts are active for you to connect with us on YouTube @Omega Fire Ministries Houston, on Facebook @Omega Fire Ministries Houston Texas, Twitter @ofmhoustontexas, Instagram @ofmhouston.
Are you a believer within this community and would like to identify with us, please we encourage that you do so by contacting +18325988144 or send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Its ok if you are new in the Christian faith or an unbeliever, we are always here to help you grow, please share with us some vital information about yourself as this will help us know how to work with you.

praise family church; OUR CORE VALUES THE WORD The Bible is our “rule for faith and practice.” Everything we do, what we believe and the direction we take all must line up with God’s Word. FAMILY Not only do we strive to minister to every member of every family, we also realize that we must operate as the family of God. SONSHIP We choose to operate as “sons” of God, not as slaves, because “sons have a stake in the family business.” EXCELLENCE This is not defined as perfection; instead, we believe we should always do the very best we can with whatever we have. RELEVANCE We never compromise our message, but are always looking for new, culturally sensitive ways to relay it. Statement of Faith The Bible is our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. This statement of Fundamental Truths is intended simply as a basis of fellowship among us, i.e., that we speak the same thing (1 Corinthians 1:10; Acts 2:42). The phraseology employed in this statement is not inspired or contended for, but the truth set forth is held to be essential to a full gospel ministry. No claim is made that it contains all Biblical truth, only that it covers our need as to these fundamental doctrines. 1. The Scriptures Inspired The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct (2 Timothy 3:15- 17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21). 2. The One True God The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent “I AM,” the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43: 10, 11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22). 3. The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare: His virgin birth (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31, 35). His sinless life (Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22). His miracles (Acts 2:22; 10:38). His substitutionary work on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21). His bodily resurrection from the dead (Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4). His exaltation to the right hand of God (Acts 1:9, 11; 2:33; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:3). 4. The Fall of Man Man was created good and upright; for God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God (Genesis 1:26, 27; 2:17; 3:6; Romans 5:12-19). 5. The Salvation of Man Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God. Conditions to Salvation Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life (Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8; Titus 2:11; 3:5-7) The Evidences of Salvation The inward evidence of salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Romans 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4:24; Titus 2:12). 6. The Ordinances of the Church Baptism in Water The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded in the Scriptures. All who repent and believe on Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. Thus they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47, 48; Romans 6:4). Holy Communion The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements-bread and the fruit of the vine-is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4); a memorial of His suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26); and a prophecy concerning his second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26); and is enjoined on all believers “till He come!” 7. The Baptism in the Holy Ghost All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31). This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth (Acts 8:12-17; 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9). With the baptism in the Holy Ghost come such experiences as an overflowing fullness of the Spirit (John 7:37-39; Acts 4:8), a deepened reverence for God (Acts 2:43; Hebrews 12:28), an intensified consecration to God and dedication to His work (Acts 2:42), and a more active love for Christ, for His Word and for the lost (Mark 16:20). 8. The Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Ghost The baptism of believers in the Holy Ghost is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance (Acts 2:4). The speaking in tongues in this instance is the same in essence as the gift of tongues (1 Corinthians 12:4-10, 28), but different in purpose and use. 9. Sanctification Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God (Romans 12:1, 2; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 13:12). The Scriptures teach a life of “holiness without which no man shall see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14). By the power of the Holy Ghost we are able to obey the command: “Be ye holy, for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:15, 16). Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, and by faith reckoning daily upon the fact of that union, and by offering every faculty continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit (Romans 6:1-11, 13; Romans 8:1, 2, 13; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 2:12, 13; 1 Peter 1:5). 10. The Church and Its Mission The church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the General Assembly and Church of the Firstborn, which are written in heaven (Ephesians 1:22, 23; 2:22; Hebrews 12:23). Since God’s purpose concerning man is to seek and to save that which is lost, to be worshipped by man, and to build a body of believers in the image of His Son, the priority reason-for-being of the Assemblies of God as part of the Church is: To be an agency of God for evangelizing the world (Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:19, 20; Mark 16:15,16). To be a corporate body in which man may worship God (1 Corinthians 12:13). To be a channel of God’s purpose to build a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son (Ephesians 4:11-16; 1 Corinthians 12:28; 1 Corinthians 14:12). The Assemblies of God exists expressly to give continuing emphasis to this reason-for-being in the New Testament apostolic pattern by teaching and encouraging believers to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. This experience: Enables them to evangelize in the power of the Spirit with accompanying supernatural signs (Mark 16:15-20; Acts 4:29-31; Hebrews 2:3, 4). Adds a necessary dimension to worshipful relationship with God (1 Corinthians 2:10-16; 1 Corinthians 12, 13 and 14). Enables them to respond to the full working of the Holy Spirit in expression of fruit and gifts and ministries as in New Testament times for the edifying of the body of Christ (Galatians 5:22-26; 1 Corinthians 14:12; Ephesians 4:11, 12; 1 Corinthians 12:28; Colossians 1:29). 11. The Ministry A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for the threefold purpose of leading the Church in: (1) Evangelization of the world (Mark 16:15-20), (2) Worship of God (John 4:23, 24), (3) Building a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son (Ephesians 4:11-16). 12. Divine Healing Divine Healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers (Isaiah 53:4, 5; Matthew 8:16, 17; James 5:14-16). 13. The Blessed Hope The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the Church (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51, 52). 14. The Millennial Reign of Christ The second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on earth for one thousand years (Zechariah 14:5; Matthew 24:27, 30; Revelation 1:7; 19:11-14; 20:1-6). This millennial reign will bring salvation of national Israel (Ezekiel 37:21, 22; Zephaniah 3:19, 20; Romans 11:26, 27) and the establishment of universal peace (Isaiah 11:6-9; Psalm 72:3-8; Micah 4:3, 4). 15. The Final Judgment There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death (Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20; 20:11-15; 21:8). 16. The New Heavens and The New Earth “We, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness” (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21, 22).
