What we Believe
The Lord's Gym is for everyone—not just people of faith. However, for the volunteers at the Lord's Gym, our faith is the reason why we do what we do!
If you are interested in reconnecting with God or finding a church community, why not join us at the Father's House Church in Oroville? We would love to see you there!
Before I met Jesus, I found my self-worth in relationships, social status, partying, and possessions. I thought my purpose would be found in these things and validated through other people, but none of it gave me true stability or deep satisfaction. I went to church, and I had an experience with God that filled the sense of emptiness I felt inside with joy, peace, purpose, and worth.
I knew Jesus was real and came to The Father’s House and their School of Transformation desperate to know more about Him. I was radically transformed through the teachings and acceptance I received from the church. I would have no clue 'how to be a christian' if it wasn't for the leaders at The Father’s House graciously leading me in discovering who Jesus is and, in return, who that made me.
Today, I have no desire for substances, and I live a life that gives hope to women who have struggled with insecurities and dysfunctional relationships. I have discovered that with Jesus I am brave enough to face anything, and I have the confidence that I will never be alone or need anything but Him and the church family He's brought into my life.
Before I met Jesus, I had no purpose and my life was empty, so I tried to fill it with drugs, alcohol, video games, and porn. I wanted to die. I was totally lost, without direction, and full of fear. I had no goals in life and didn't know who I was.
I met Jesus in 2013 when I heard a preacher say over the internet that there was power in the blood of Jesus to cleanse me from my sin and set me free if I repent. So I did. I woke up the next day a different person; I stopped drinking, smoking, looking at porn, and decided to follow Jesus. I was changed.
I came to The Father’s House in 2016, and I can say that today I am no longer empty, I have a purpose. I am no longer afraid, I know what direction my life is heading. I have gained a family, real friends, and community. Today I know who I am in Jesus, I am happy, I love my life, and I get to help people know who they are, who Jesus is, and have a life worth living.
