The Church was never intended to just be a building!
You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 2:5
On this page you will find stories from people who have experienced God’s blessings from the Build the House as well as some of the video stories we shared during the series.
As you read and watch these stories your faith will begin to grow. Everyone has a story to tell. But it’s the stories of faith that inspires us the most.
Build the House Miracles
My husband and I committed to increase our giving for Build The House. This week, out of complete “left field” we were contacted by some friends and told they wanted to GIVE us one of their extra cars for our son. We just picked it up and we are blown away, again by God’s faithfulness. No way could we have gone out and bought something as nice as what they gave us. I wish I could yell it from the rooftops, “His promises are true people; you cannot out-give Him”!

For Build the House, my wife and I were led to take a step of faith in our giving. We give to the church because of the lives that are being changed. On Mother’s Day, my wife’s mom came over and brought some mail for us. In that mail was a refund check that was lost due to an old address for an overpayment we made on a bill. The refund check was for $531. I felt like this was God telling me that if you are looking for a sign when it comes to trusting me, here it is!

So we of course made our commitment to Build the House, without hesitation. A couple days later we got a letter in the mail stating that a loan we thought we owed on for another year was PAID IN FULL! That extra payment amount was MORE than we committed for Build the House each month. God is so awesome!

When Pastor Tim invited us to write down names of people on the stones that we believe in faith will meet Christ, I knew exactly what names to write down. I wrote down the names of my sister and brother-in-law. I have been praying for them for months with Pastor Rick. To my surprise, I walked into church that following weekend and guess who shows up? Yes, in just one week, I was able to see both of them cross the threshold of our church, a movie theater in a mall! They need God so much in their life right now and I’m praying they surrender their lives to Him. I am always in awe of how God works and I won’t take it for granted.

I felt like God told me to give a large amount of my savings account for Build The House. I was originally going to give a small part of it, but I felt like God told me to give most of it. So I did. I don’t have a job yet and have been saving my money for a car. That following week, I got a job offer that was better than any job I could have asked for and now I have the ability to make even more money than I gave. I now see God’s faithfulness and I know that He will provide for me!
