Church History

Joshua Gener8tion House of Faith was born in the heart of Pastor Washington under the unction of the Holy Ghost. 

Many people have asked, "What is the logic and meaning behind the name of the ministry?"  The logic and meaning behind the name derives from the historical account of the children of Isreal, specifically Joshua and Caleb, as well as biblical numerology.  In the book of Numbers, chapter 13, the children of Isreal went to spy out the land of Canaan because it was the land tat God Almighty promised them when He brought them out of Egypt in captivity.  The bible says that 12 went over to spy it out but only two came back with a good report.  Those two were Joshua and Caleb because according to the Holy scriptures in Numbers the 13th and 14th chapters, Joshua and Caleb had another spirit than the other 10.  Biblical Numerology says that 8 is the number of New Beginnings and Resurrection.  With that being said, the name of the ministry is Joshua Gener8tion House of Faith because we are a ministry with a new beginning that's resurrecting the true spirit of worship and authority that every believer should be walking in and causing a generation of people to declae that we can possess the things that the Lord God has promised us in a spirit of excellence and integrity without compromise in the faith of Yahweh God.

On May 27, 2007 the very first service for this new ministry was held at the home of Pastor Washington and it included 3 people other than his wife and child.  It was prophesied to Pastor Washington that soon the ministry would expand and he would have to seek a building.  Within a few months’ time the ministry had grown and true to God’s Word, the ministry moved into a building exactly 5 months to the date of its inception.  Thank God for grace!  Since that time God has continued to add to the ministry such as should be saved. 

The church has sponsored a back to school bash which enabled children from around the community to receive school supplies and clothing.  A food bank was organized and distributed over 60,000 pounds of food to various individuals and families from the surrounding areas.  The ministry was blessed to add a youth building at the current location.  The ministry has also purchased property for a new sanctuary and currently undergoing a building project.  

But, most importantly people’s lives have been transformed by the Power of God.  We are very proud of our History and the many graces that God have provided for us throughout this ministry.  Truly we have seen the hand of God upon us and we look forward to the continuation of his Favor as we stay faithful to do what He has commissioned us to do – POSSESS THE LAND FOR THE KINGDOM.
