Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God.

Romans 15:7

There's no coincidence you're here, we've been praying for you. With every new beginning, there's some questions, doubts, and hesitations that may arise but allow us to alleviate these concerns by sharing a bit about ourselves and our unwavering commitment to Jesus Christ.

I'm visiting for the first time, where do I start?

Meet Our Pastoral Family

Powerhouse Christian Center was founded by Pastor Samuel Soto and his wife Pastor Epa Soto in February of 2002. Answering the call of God on their lives, they planted the church in Pastor Sam's mother's living room. As God began to bring others alongside them, the church grew and meetings took place in various locations such as a store front, hotel ballroom and other church facilities. God's plan to build and establish the foundation of Powerhouse continued in September of 2006, as He enabled the ministry to buy its very own building. Today we are a vibrant group of believers, seeking to pursue all that God has for us and reach the world for Christ.
