ABOUT US

The Potter's House Church in Spring Valley, CA is a Bible-based, Spirit-filled, Non-denominational Christian ministry with a passion to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Join us for service where you will experience a powerful time of worship and preaching that will encourage your faith and help you in your relationship with Christ.

We are...

A Gospel-Centered Church:
The Gospel is the central theme of the Bible. All scripture points to the suffering and glory of Christ. It's the story of how God fulfills his promise to deliver his people and advance his Kingdom. This Good News has power for both non-believers and believers. We become Christians and grow as Christians by grace through faith in Jesus.

A Renewed Church:
We believe that the Gospel can change anyone. Who Christ is and what he has done transforms our hearts, not just our behavior. We're not called to be "nice" people, we're called to be a new people. It's the grace of Christ that renews us and gives us a desire to see that same grace renew the world.

A Missional Church:
Jesus said, "(Father), as you have sent me into the world. I have sent them into the world." Being a missional church means that, together, we are the sent people of God who reflect and advance his Kingdom of grace by the power of the Gospel. We love our city and pray that our people and culture are transformed by the truth and love of Christ.

OUR HERITAGE

In 1970 Wayman and Nelda Mitchell moved to Prescott to take over a small, struggling congregation. Shortly after arriving, God saved a number of young hippies who were very different than anyone in the church. But as they were welcomed, God began to pour out His Spirit on the congregation.  As Pastor Mitchell sought to reach young people, they saw the possibilities of the “coffee-house” concert ministry. At the first concert they ever tried as an evangelistic tool, more than 200 young people attended, with many saved. Out of this a regular concert ministry was birthed. 2 nights a week, bands played, testimonies of salvation were given and the Gospel was preached, with many being saved each night.


From the beginning, Pastor Mitchell understood that  concert ministry was to be a training ground of ministry development; It was run by young people who were committed to Jesus and His church.  From the beginning, people who had been radically converted sought to share with others what God had done in them. Personal evangelism began to be one of the basic foundations of the church.  Then came impact teams: Groups of people that would travel to other nearby cities to help people there experience what God was doing here. Over time, God began to reveal His plan of discipleship: Training young couples for ministry within a local church.  In 1973 the first couple was launched directly into the ministry – and God blessed them!  Churches then began to be planted throughout the Southwestern United States, and then further across America as converts prayed for the Gospel to be preached in their hometowns.


In 1978 the first couple was planted into another nation – Australia; and we discovered the Gospel worked there, just like it did here.  After that, churches were planted in Mexico, Holland and Germany then as we came to understand God’s global mission more and more, churches began to be planted throughout the world. To date, there are over 2200 churches in 44 US states, and 117 nations of the world.
