Our History:

He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Phil 1:6). EPC was begun after divine guidance that was received by Rev. Mathew Oommen, while spending days in fasting and prayer, seeking God in November of 1994. In the beginning, the only members were Pastor and his family. As weeks went by, the Lord added more people to the church.

The fellowship was registered with the Secretary of the State of Texas in January of 1995 as Emmanuel Pentecostal Church of Houston. EPC is now affiliated with the Indian Pentecostal Church of God, Kumbanadu, Kerala, India. After worshiping the Lord in rented buildings for almost 10 years, the Lord helped the church to buy the current property in June 2003. In 2009, we were able to rebuild our church and make a bigger sanctuary by the grace of God.
