Mission Statement

Mission Statement
We are a ministry that believes the Bible is the inspired word of God from which Christians learn best God's truths and also come to know best God's love in Jesus Christ. We believe in the Holy Spirit having liberty in our midst. God has given us the passion of networking by promoting unification within pastors, leaders and intercessors in our region and globally based on Ephesians 4:1-6  We believe as well in a  five fold ministry. God has given us the passion of networking in promoting unity within the various church fellowships especially pastors, leaders and intercessors, watchmen most especially in the Sacramento and Elk Grove region (as that is is our home base) as well globally. Our passion is to see unity within the body of Christ throughout all nations.

                                                                                                                     Scriptures:

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. 

Ephesians 4:1-6 (NIV) 


 6 “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter — when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. 

Isaiah 58: 6-8 (NIV)

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Romans 12: 1-2 (NIV



Vision Statement

Our vision is to see transformation in the believer and connect God’s people so that they may have a deeper relationship with Him or if they don’t yet know Him introduce them to salvation. As well connect individuals one to another. Connect ourselves in ministry of compassion to a broken and hurting people.


God's Mandate

He also clearly stated this is “HIS HOUSE” and does not want it to be a religious place but a House of Prayer and, Praise. Matthew 11:14.

My name is Thomas Whisenhunt and my beautiful wife is Sue and we function as an apostolic team.  God’s mandate to us is to teach His people to “accurately hear My voice and obey Me” and that is what we do.

We love God’s people and have devoted our lives to fulfill the Great Commission of making disciples. We have been in ministry for 35 years and have worn many hats in the church community; from children’s pastors, youth pastors, associate pastors and senior pastors.  We have taught Believers to function with signs following in Healing Rooms and helped many Believers into the Holy Spirit Baptism. For the last 10 years God has had us start and work with home churches.  You could call us Spiritual Life Coaches. We were mentored by an apostle who to date has raised 4 people from the dead.  The apostle trained us to hear Holy Spirit, to flow with Him and to demonstrate to Believers and the world how to walk as Jesus commanded us to live in John 14:12. Our Kingdom assignment is to bring Heaven to earth and make disciples by demonstrating how to operate in His Kingdom; We help them to fully walk in their God given assignments.
