PowerHouse Ministries
Formerly PowerHouse Christian Center


Twenty years ago Free Them Ministries, Inc., began. From that beginning was launched an international ministry culminating in PowerHouse Christian Center in Texas and PHCC Kenya. In 2013, PowerHouse Christian Center was disbanded and became PowerHouse Ministries. Free Them Ministries, Inc., was still the oversite corporation.

The time has come for another change. Dr. Linda Smith will still be sharing and teach the word of God wherever the opportunity presents, however, we will be ceasing the presence of PowerHouse Ministries and indeed, Free Them Ministries, Inc., shortly. This website will be closed along with Free Them Ministry website and Dr. Smith will form a new, fresh web presence. PHCC Kenya will continue indefinitely.

We wish to thank all you who have stood with us and supported us through the last two decades. Some were scaffolding and some were bricks and mortar. All were appreciated. We pray you will transition with us and follow us in our new ministry.

God bless you all.



Last year, 2016, was called a divisive year. The world was divided. The church was divided. This country, the USA, was divided and while a Remnant came together to challenge the status quo, the heathen raged and imagines vain things. A lot has been said about fake news. There have been slanderous statements made about well-known people. Reputations have been attacked.

Our faith, our trust, our ability to know truth have been challenged. We can no longer rely on individuals or organizations for the truth. We must rely on God for the truth. As individual believers, the onus is on us to discern the truth, to download revelation from Holy Spirit, to gain wisdom from above.

This year is a year of exposure like never before. Stars of the entertainment field are being exposed as irrational haters, gnashing out venom toward others. The same can be said of liberal politicians. Careers are dissolving. Character assasinations abound. This year is a time when we must know God's assessment of situations and people. Don't look on the surface, for like David, the strongest and most attractive may not be the one God chooses through whom to work.

The scripture tell us that in the end times some believers will be deceived. So in this strategic year, whenever confronted with new information, opportunities, or whatever new thing it is, ask God, "Can I believe it?"



A fellow minister ask me what I was hearing from the Lord for 2016. Like many ministers, especially when I was pastoring, I would enquire of the Lord for a prophetic word concerning the upcoming year. I told this minister I wasn't hearing anything.

However, I do have some observations. Simultaneously I see several factions in the Church. Now don't get me wrong. The Church, ekklesia, is good and will not pass away. The reason I think I hear nothing about 2016 is because, like never before, what this year will bring is in the faith of each believer. Sounds cliche, doesn't it?

We are coming ever closer to a spiritually epic change in the Kingdom when this age will end and another will begin. This new year will be one of great shifting, increased blessing and advancement IF a believer is positioned for such. By positioned I mean in their relationship with God. If not, things will stay pretty much the same with a possible slight decline in quality of life.

The factions in the church are:

The Remnant who are always quietly aware of what God is doing in the moment and not carried away by religious fads nor moved off course by circumstances. They know he power of Holy Spirit and can operate the manifestations and fruit of the Spirit.

The Party People who just want an experience and not a relationship with God.

The Touchy/Feeling People who are only into love, love, love and the heart of the Father. Sounds great, right? The problem is these forsake increasing in the knowledge of the Word of God and a respect for the Commandments in favor of 'all you need is love'. They don't see that being a student of the Word and a keeper of the Commandments demonstrates our love for God.

The Dinosaur People are stuck in the Jesus movement or the Azusa Movement or in some past Revival or in Religious Tradition. They pretend to be relevant and flowing with the move of God, but except for modern clothes and hairstyles, church looks the same as it always has. They say they recognize Holy Spirit, but don't refuse it's full operation among believers.

Remnant people learn the Word of God with depth and balance and they hold to it. They embrace the full manifestation of Holy Spirit while maintaining their focus on the entire Godhead with a spiritual balance. They appreciate revival times, but they are steadfast in their position within their relationship with God, their knowledge of the Word and their ability manifesting Holy Spirit. They spend time with God. Their identity is found in Christ. They are earth-effective and Heaven-minded.

What about 2016? Be a Remnant person and it will be a year of signs, miracles and wonders. It will be filled with peace and security in Christ.


Introducing RELAUNCH!


With a heart for the small church and a history of helping small to medium sized churches turn around

difficult situations, Dr. Linda smith has decided to make it official. Under the name of Relaunch, the

ministry will have the goal of helping struggling assemblies evaluate, repair and relaunch into their

communities in order to become more relevant and effective in ministry.

The Bible says believers are Spirit, Soul and Body (1 Thessalonioans 5:23). Churches are also spirit,

soul and body. (The congregation, the mission and the vision). All three will be considered in the

Relaunch program.

The program will:

  • Identify any negative or detrimental issues.
  • Formulate and implement solutions.
  • Assist in redefining vision and application.
