Our mission

and vision


To introduce people to the power and fullness of Jesus Christ, to equip them to be His mouthpiece and His hands and feet on this earth, and then reproduce the process in others.

"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call." -Acts 2:38-39

Beginning as a church plant in 2011 with just a handful of people, The Pentecostals of The Woodlands has grown exponentially becoming a relevant and effective conduit for the power and grace of God by engaging the community, motivating people to become great in God, and activating them to fulfill His mission in their lives. We have outgrown three facilities in seven years and believe that God has positioned us for this very hour.

We understand that the New Testament church is not all about buildings and programs. We believe it is about engaging, motivating and activating God's people! It is the priority of The POW to meet the spiritual needs of this community—to the elder as well as the child, to every individual without regard to gender, race, or social status. No matter your background or beliefs, God is using The POW to radically change the way church is done.

There are many facets to The Pentecostals of The Woodlands commitment to reaching The Woodlands and surrounding areas. Events are strategically planned for the express purpose of serving the community and strengthening the church family. We also believe that we do not have all the answers, but the Bible does!  With that, we engage in Bible Study in homes, workplaces, and at the church so that we can activate God throughout our active lifestyles.

The POW is also committed to ministering to every age demographic. The dedicated KaPOW Kidz staff engages, motivates, and activates children of all ages. The EmPOWer Youth ministry, made up of junior-high and senior-high students, are engaging teens and young adults through healthy events and community involvement. Our POWerhouse Hyphen group of College and Career Adults is consistently activated throughout our region. And don't think that the Young Marrieds and Keenagers are left out, we engage them to throughout the year.

In addition to our calling and responsibility to The Woodlands and surrounding areas, The POW is committed to being a globally-minded church. The POW has an active missions program supporting missionaries worldwide and here in America. Finally, The POW envisions itself as a multicultural, multi-generational church. We understand that the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ was promised to every tribe and to every nation (Revelation 5:9). Many people remark how refreshing it is to come and worship in a church that is diverse in race, age, and culture.  

The POW is a dynamic, engaging community of believers from all walks of life, committed to sharing the Gospel with all through a variety of activities, programs, and events so that “whosoever wills” can have their spiritual needs met.



Based on Scripture, we believe the following...

About the Bible

The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living (2 Timothy 3:15-17).

About God

There is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4 ), who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man (Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; 1 Timothy 3:16).

About Sin and Salvation
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9).

About the Gospel
The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (2 Thessalonians 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection) (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4).

About Christian Living
As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. (Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14. The manifestation of the supernatural  gifts of the Holy Spirit is still active in the church today.  He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government. (Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11).

About the Future

Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11 15).
