The mission of The House Worship Center is to make disciples by teaching Biblical truth, helping others, worshiping God with understanding, and connecting people to a relationship with God that will last.
Our vision is "Everything Teach". We want to use every encounter as teaching opportunity to follow the Great Commission as it states in Matthew 28:19-20, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name
of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
The House Worship Center has a legacy of ministry that began 65 years ago in the Denver Community. In 2008, we merged with two local congregations and the church adopted its new name and vision, bringing together a unique mixture of diversities in age and in ethnicity worshiping together in one spiritual house. THWC is a teaching ministry and is home to men and women that are hungry to learn the Word of God. Our teaching menu includes in-depth weekly word studies, training and preparation for ministry, leadership and development, and advance Biblical studies on doctrine and the Hebraic history of the Christian faith. The leadership of Pastor Del Phillips has brought our congregation to its current location which is structurally fit
to support our vision for teaching and ministry.

Hosea: 4-6 "My people perish for lack of knowledge."
Deacon Taylor has worn many hats during his years of service at THWC, such as pastoral support, leadership, guidance, love, and time.

They are ready to do any work that is a logical and practical extension of the work of Christ through the local body of believers.
