Welcome to
The Carpenter's Home Internet Church

Pastor's teachings on Wednesdays nights are now going to be broadcast from a different room at Auburndale Life Church.  In addition, our new Pastor will be teaching at the same time, so we have created a new Ustream Channel just for Pastor Strader's Teachings.  The web address for this new channel is:


We will broadcast live and archive each week on this Ustream Channel.

Two special articles from Pastor Strader:

This is a Church for All Nations!

Our desire is to reach every single country in the world with the Gospel.   We want to follow the Great Commission that Jesus gave. . .to preach the Gospel

Dr. Karl Strader, Pastor

to every creature.   

We want to reach that secular person that desperately needs the Lord,  that lonely man or woman out in Siberia, that believer in China,  that Jew in Israel who hasn't understood that Jesus is the Messiah,   that Muslim in Pakistan who doesn't know that Jesus is God,  that pagan Indian in the rain forest of the Amazon,  that depressed Eskimo in the Arctic Circle, that Catholic who has mixed his Christianity with Voodoo in Haiti,   that young heathen Buddhist in India,  that mixed-up Mormon in Utah,  that to-be-pitied Atheist in New York City,  that New Ager in Hollywood, and that church member that hasn't yet had a born-again experience.

God has given us this exotic medium of the Internet in these last days so that we can reach every creature on planet earth and turn him to righteousness.   For the first time in 2000 years a handful of believers can reach every creature from one location!   It's more than exciting.

It's incredible!
