History of My Father's House:

In 2005, after a trip to Uganda on a Ministry trip, Pastor Ernest Howie out of call and concern to help orphaned children in Uganda, started helping orphaned children under different ministries especially those in the Eastern town of Mbale. Through prayer and divine guidance, My Father's House-Howie Christian Charitable Trust (MFH-HCCT) was established as an organization through which loving and caring people could sponsor orphaned children. In turn, those children would be provided benefits including; food and clothing, education, shelter, health care, and Christian training.  In 2009, MFH opened her maiden doors to meet the needs of orphans by reaching out to them, mostly on the streets, of Mbale town. There are now 40 orphaned children under the care of My Father's House.

Faith Statement

The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16).

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19).

In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory. (John 3:16; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 1:3-6).

In the blessed hope - the rapture of the Church at Christ's coming (Titus 2:13).

The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ (John 14:6).

Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation (Titus 3:5).

In water baptism by immersion (Matthew 28:19).

The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer (1 Peter 2:24).

The baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.

Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement and is the privilege of all believers (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17).

In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life (Galatians 5:16-25).

In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation (Revelation 20:11-15).

The Lord's Supper, consisting of the elements, bread and the fruit of the vine, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4), a memorial of His suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26). It is enjoined on all believers "until He comes."

The Scriptures teach a life of holiness without which no man shall see the Lord. By the power of the Holy Ghost we are able to obey the command, "Be ye holy, for I am holy." Entire sanctification is the will of God for all believers, and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to God's Word (Hebrews 12:14; 1 Peter 1:15-16; 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24; 1 John 2:6).

The Gifts of The Holy Spirit: word of knowledge, wisdom, faith, healing, working of miracles, prophecy, discernment of spirits, tongues and the interpretation of tongues are available through the Holy Spirit and are for the Church today!
