House of Faith-Abilene began it’s first Neighborhood Bible Club in July, 2001. After struggling for years with ways to get the neighborhood children and youth into a neighborhood church, Denise Davidson was introduced to San Angelo’s House of Faith. They asked her a simple question –
"Why wait for them to come ‘into’ church? Why not just take your lessons outside to them?"
This basic question began the Abilene based House of Faith ministry modeled after House of Faith in San Angelo, TX in one neighborhood on the south side of Abilene. God soon showed us that He wanted us to reach more children and youth throughout Abilene and began opening up other neighborhoods for clubs to begin.
Because of amazing volunteers and partners, we have reached out into 9 neighborhood areas throughout the years and now, we are here to assist and train you with reaching out to an area where God has placed a burden on your heart.
House of Faith-Abilene exist to take Jesus to neighborhood children, youth and families, provide a sense of belonging and strengthen their faith, enabling them to honor God with their lives and offer themselves in service to Him.
To love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love our neighbors and encourage them to do the same.
To go out and reach the lost and unsaved with the Good News of Jesus.
To help children, youth, and families become the men and women of God He has always intended them to be by teaching them to obey everything God commanded us to do.
The staff are our local missionaries living right here in Abilene. They love Jesus and love to reach others for Christ.
