The Potter’s House is a Christian church. We preach simple, direct messages to help you find the truth about God and salvation. If you’re looking for help, this would be a great place to start.

Why the name The Potter’s House?  Our name comes from a story in the Bible in the book of Jeremiah.  God told the prophet to go to the potter’s house to see how God symbolically works on our life.  The Potter is God and we are the clay being shaped into something useful.  Pretty cool! Ref: Jeremiah 18:1-4
