Our heritage. The Potter’s House Christian Fellowship is a Christian Pentecostal church organisation founded by Pastor Wayman Mitchell in Prescott, Arizona in 1970. The official organisation title is Christian Fellowship Ministries or CFM.
The Potter’s House is a Pentecostal Bible-based fellowship of 2500 churches in 115 nations throughout the world with 61 ministering evangelists.
The name comes from an Old Testament verse of the Bible:
Jeremiah 18:2 ‘Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.’
Because of its Biblical origin, the name “The Potter’s House” is often used by other independent church groups besides those affiliated with Christian Fellowship Ministries.
The Potter’s House has its roots in the Jesus People Movement, a Christian revival that occurred in America in the early 1970s, the Prescott church was established under Pastor Wayman Mitchell.
The Christian Fellowship Ministries take seriously Christ’s commission to “go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Therefore, our mission as a fellowship has always been to fulfil Christ’s Great Commission through discipleship, church planting, and world evangelism. It was Christ Himself who commanded His followers to “make disciples of all the nations” and the simple obedience to this command by our founding Pastor Wayman Mitchell that has been imparted as our fellowship’s vision.
With this focus, we are constantly endeavouring to reach unsaved and 'unchurched' people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to spread the good news of God’s love and saving grace throughout the world. Whether we use Christian bands, movies, dramas, street preaching, or door-to-door evangelism, our focus and mission is to help lead people into their own personal relationship with the Saviour Jesus Christ.
Proverbs 11:30 ‘The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise.’
