Who Are We?
We encourage folks to take what they learn inside the walls of the church to those outside the church who need to hear the good news of the Gospel. Our focus is not filling our church with people but filling the people with God.
Whether it has been a long time since you attended church or if you recently moved into the area and are looking for a new church home, we invite you to stop in for a visit. We would love to meet you!
What Do We Believe?
We believe: that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God.
We believe: in one God eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe: that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,and is true God and Man.
We believe: that man was created in the image of God, that through sin he became separated from God and that all men are born with a sinful nature.
We believe: that the Lord Jesus Christ died in our place for our sins according to the Scriptures, that we are cleansed from our sins by His shed blood, are born of the Holy Spirit and become children of God.
We believe: in the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His ascension into Heaven and His present position at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.
We believe: in the power of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 1:8. We believe in the personal, visible, return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
A Little About Us.
On June 2, 1988 the new Kewaskum Living Waters Church held its first meeting at the Kewaskum Labor Union Hall. Pastor Robert Lormis and his wife Laura began the work here in Kewaskum. The building at 100 Clinton Street was purchased in January 1989. After extensive remodeling which included making a sanctuary, class rooms, an office and fellowship hall, the first service was held on May 21, 1989.
Pastor Joseph Brath and his wife Joan came to Kewaskum in September of 1990 as assistant pastors and on Easter Sunday of 1992 assumed the position of Senior Pastor. Pastor Lormis and his wife felt called to the Evangelistic field.
In 2005 the name of the church was changed from Kewaskum Living Waters to Kewaskum House of Prayer. We are a Branch church of the Pentecostal House of Prayer in Horicon. In a 2006 remodeling project, the size of the sanctuary was doubled, new furnaces installed, and other rooms were updated. The first service in the newly remodeled sanctuary was Christmas morning 2006.
Pastor Dennis Heimermann and his wife Jodi joined us as Youth Pastors in September, 2007 and also served as Assistant Pastors until July, 2015 when they accepted a Senior Pastor position in Georgia. In 2013 we remodeled the outside of the building having a new roof and siding installed and giving the rest of the building a fresh coat of paint.
Also in June, 2013 we celebrated 25 years of God’s faithfulness to this ministry with a Community Open House and special services featuring founding Pastor Robert Lormis and Pastor John Beauprey from the Pentecostal House of Prayer in Horicon. We are pleased to be part of the Community and we hope to be a vital part of Kewaskum’s Spiritual fabric for many years to come.
