House of Rest was planted in Modesto Ca in May of 2011. It's first service was held at in the banquet room of La Quinta Inn, Salida CA which is on the outskirts of Modesto CA. Since then it has grown organically by structuring itself as a house church within a building. 

Within a few weeks in the banquet room, the small church moved to the basement of Pastor David which was able to hold 22 chairs as he stood in the corner to preach. This created the tight community of family as individuals and families came to be a part of what God was doing in the city of Modesto. 

We have three motto's that we have repeated many times over the years. One is,

'Jesus Christ is the Senior Pastor of this church',

the second, 'we have a seat with your name on it'

and lastly, 'Before we are a church, we are a family.'

We invite you to be a part of something organic, biblical and loving. We want to know your name, your family and for you to know ours.

Church Belief Statement

1. The Scriptures
We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally
inspired Word of God, the final authority of faith and life, inerrant in the original
writings, infallible and God breathed.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17, Hebrews 4:12, 2 Peter 1:21, Isaiah 40:8, Psalm 119:89,160)

2. Who is God?
We believer that the one true God is the God of the Old and New Testament,
Creator, Redeemer, Restorer of all mankind. Who has revealed Himself as Yahweh
and Immanuel which means ‘God with us’.
(Genesis 1:1, Isaiah 9:6, Deuteronomy 6:4, John 1:1, Matthew 1:23, Colossians 1:15-20, 1 Timothy
3:16, Revelation 1:8)

3. Jesus Christ
We believe in the Diety of our Lord Jesus Christ. In His virgin birth, His sinless
life, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension
to the right hand of the majesty on high and in His personal return with power and
( John 1:1-5, John 20:28, Colossians 1:15-17, Matthew 1:22-23, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Romans 3:25,
Matthew 28:5-7, 1 Corinthians 5:7, Acts 1:9-11, Ephesians 4:8-10, Philippians 2:5-11, Hebrews
1:2-3, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)

4. Salvation
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy
Spirit is absolutely essential. Salvation is by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone
through grace alone, both justification and sanctification are the works of the Holy
Spirit in those who trust in Jesus.
(Ephesians 2:8-10, John 1:12, Ephesians 1:7, 1 Peter 1:18-19)

5. Doctrine of man
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that through
Adam’s sin, mankind fell and inherited a sinful nature, thus becoming alienated
from God. Man is totally depraved and is of himself utterly unable to remedy his
lost condition.
(Genesis 1:26-27, Romans 3:22-23, Ephesians 2:1-2, Ephesians 2:12)

6. Work of the Holy Spirit
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling, the
Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin,
or righteousness, and of judgment; baptizing all believers into the body of Christ.
The Holy Spirit is the supernatural agent in regeneration that indwells and seals
believers unto the day of redemption.
(John 18:8-11, 2 Corinthians 3:6, 1 Corinthians 12:12-14, Romans 8:9, Ephesians 5:18)

7. Water Baptism
We believe in the New Testament teaching of full immersion water baptism, with
our first example being Jesus Christ, also followed by His disciples according to
Jesus commission and put into practice throughout the book of Acts and the early
church. It seems proper to say that when baptism is properly carried out, it brings
spiritual benefit to believers. There is the blessing of God’s favor that comes with
obedience as well as the joy that comes through public profession of one’s faith,
and the reassurance of having a clear physical picture of dying and rising with
Christ and washing away sins.
(Matthew 3:16, Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:38, Acts 8:3)

8. Marriage & Family
We believe that marriage and family are institutions ordained by the Lord God
Himself from the very beginning of human history and these are the sacred
institutions. Marriage is between one man and one woman. Any other definition of
marriage is contrary to the clear teachings of the Holy Bible and hence against the
expressed will of God.
(Genesis 1:27-28, 2:20b-24, 1 Corinthians 7:2, Hebrews 13:4)
