Senior Pastor, Denton Rhone, ThD.

Dear Friend,
Welcome to Houston International Seventh-day Adventist Church— home to believers from 31 different countries. Most of these wonderful individuals journeyed from their homes all over the world to the great state of Texas and in particular to the fastest-growing and most diverse city in the United States— Houston. They came to explore and study; to gain an education and start a family; to worship God and fellowship with other believers; to serve humanity and lead others into a saving relationship with the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We find our greatest joy in leading people to Jesus and in the delightful salvation that He offers to anyone who believes. Our Savior left heaven, became man, died on Calvary, rose from the grave, and is coming back again for those who love Him. We sincerely believe that we will see Jesus again— very soon— and we would love for you to be with us when that happens.

If you need someone to study the Bible with or just to pray with you, then we would be happy if you give us the opportunity. We have over 10 different active prayer groups for adults, youth, and children. Maybe you are new to our city and would just like to find your way around— let us know, we are here to help. And if you are searching for a church home, please visit us or make contact with us.

We have discovered that many individuals that we meet want to get closer to the Lord; others want to learn how to lead someone to Christ; and many just want to serve. I am happy to let you know that here at our church, there are over 27 active ministry groups willing to help you find your mission. If you take a little time to browse our website you will meet our wonderful, motivated staff of Christian volunteers. Come and fellowship with us, friendships and opportunities to serve the Lord awaits.

Our Lord Jesus Christ is coming and together we are invited to be with Him, forever. When you
visit, kindly say hello. Heaven won’t be heaven without you.
