Our passion is about standing firm in Christ and living Jesus-centred lives, this is what the 'Petra' in Petra House symbolises...a house built on The Rock.
Christ saves sinners. In light of that, we steward a message that radically changes lives. Petra House is a house of prayer with a mission to bring people to Jesus; develop them to grow in Christ; equip them to use their gifts in church ministry; and send them to go and make disciples - in order to glorify God’s name.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
In common with other Christian churches we worship in one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit – the ‘three in one’ or TRINITY – as revealed to us in the Bible, our authority in all matters of faith.
we are engaged in a number of community-led initiatives, This include: homeless support program, counselling services, active collaboration with other churches in Andover and jointly organising events for the benefit of the Andover populace.
The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) is one of the largest and fastest growing Pentecostal churches in the world. RCCG started in 1952 with just nine members but has today grown into a mega church with parishes spread across the five continents of the world.
The church was founded by Reverend Josiah Akindayomi in Lagos, Nigeria. The LORD established a covenant with Rev Akindayomi, synonymous to the Abrahamic covenant. The Lord said He would meet all the needs of the church in an awesome way if only members would serve Him faithfully and be obedient to His word.
It is upon this covenant that the Redeemed Christian Church of God was born and built. The Redeemed Christian Church of God was founded on the tripod of prayer, holiness and evangelism.
Rev Akindayomi went to be with the Lord in 1980 at the age of 71. The leadership of the church was assumed by Pastor Enoch Adeboye, who is still the current General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. Today he is widely acknowledged as a spiritual leader to not only millions within the RCCG, but also outside of church circle.
