Andrew Olafsson is a husband, dad, speaker, and lover of people. After being in construction for over 19 years, building homes for others, in 2018 He felt a call to shift into building God's house. Amber Olafsson is a wife, mama, author of I'll Say Yes, speaker, and publisher. She is passionate about connecting people to God and as the owner (and dreamer) of UNITED HOUSE Publishing, she helps others find their voice and publish their stories. Andrew and Amber live in the Charlotte area with their three full-of-life kids: Drew, Emma, and Jack. They are both passionate about revealing Jesus, unity, REALLY good coffee, and they love to see people walk in freedom and authority in Christ. In 2018 they founded United House Ministries, and together with their team are on mission to bring full freedom to the individual, and complete unity to the body of Christ.
United House is the worship movement birthing out of this ministry. We have a heart to work with worship leaders, songwriters, and musicians around the world to create music that glorifies Jesus and brings the church together. Check out our first original song: The Secret Place and stay tuned for our upcoming release: Heaven's Refrain (Holy)
The Old Testament and New Testament of the Bible are true, complete and God-breathed, and are the foundation of our faith and the authority on which we live by (2 Timothy 3:16).
Our God is one, existing as three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ, Savior of the world, is the Son of God (Genesis 1:26, Deuteronomy 6:4).
In His grace and love, God the Father sent Jesus to be the propitiation for our sins. Through Jesus' finished work of the cross, He bought our redemption and forgiveness, and He has made all who believe in Him as Savior the righteousness of God, clothing us in His robe of righteousness as a gift (1 John 4:9, Ephesians 1:7, 2 Corinthians 5:21).
Salvation means to be saved from hell, from slavery to sin, and from a broken relationship with God. We are saved by God's glorious grace through faith in Jesus Christ. We work out our salvation by applying the finished work of Jesus Christ in our life, being transformed into His image as we behold Him by the Spirit, and appropriating the promises of God in Scripture by declaring His Word (Ephesians 2:8, Romans 6:18, Philippians 2:12, 2 Corinthians 3:18, 2 Corinthians 1:20).
By surrendering to the Holy Spirit's leading in all aspects of our lives, He continually empowers us for ministry and transforms us to the image of Christ. We believe the baptism of the Holy Spirit can occur at salvation, but is often a separate experience when Jesus baptizes the believer with the Holy Spirit and clothes them with power for ministry (Romans 8:13-14, 2 Corinthians 3:18, Matthew 3:11, Acts 1:8).
We grow spiritually by connecting with the source of all life, God the Father, and growing in relationship with and beholding Jesus Christ, and being led by the Holy Spirit. Growth in community in a local church community and individually through reading, speaking, and applying God’s Word (Colossians 1:10, 2 Corinthians 3:18, Romans 8:14, Hebrews 10:25, Joshua 1:8).
In addition to salvation and righteousness, every believer has received gifts from the Father (Romans 12), Jesus Christ (Ephesians 4), and the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12), and all are still in operation, none have ceased.
