There will be an opportunity for you to ask Jesus to come into your life. If you want to begin a relationship with Jesus they will help you do this. They will explain the need to repent – deciding that you will turn from living life your own way to living a life like Jesus lived. They will then lead you in a prayer. We encourage that if you desire this that you would be bold and respond to the invitation. Having a relationship with Jesus is the very best thing that could happen in your life. It is something to be embraced and not kept private.
There is also an opportunity to receive prayer for any reason. We also pray for the sick. Normally we will place a hand on your body and command the sickness to leave your body in keeping with the teaching of Jesus. On many occasions we see people healed immediately and sometimes later. The Bible teaches that we are to pray with faith and persistantly until our prayer is answered. We will continue to pray for you as long as you desire.
We are convinced that God still heals people today. The Senior Pastor of this church, Lionel Rattenbury has been involved in more than 300 healings including five people who were blind in one eye, two deaf people, one mute man and a woman with severe curvature of the spine. Ask him to show you the videos of some of these miracles. Photos taken before and after praying for the woman with curvature of the spine show the miraculous healing. This condition cannot be cured by moden medical treatments.
We believe that God can use anyoine to heal the sick as the Bible teaches so. If you have the desire to be used in this way please see Lionel.
During the service someone may share a prophesy or word of knowledge for the church generally or for someone specifically. Prophesy and words of knowledge are gifts of the Holy Spirit. Again, these gifts from God are for the good of people. They are intended to build up and encourage people. The Bible says that we are not to despise prophecy but to test everything that is said and to hold on to what is good (1 Thessalonians 5:20-21).
We praise God that we can know Him through relationship and that He still reveals His power and love to people today. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Lionel on 0404 803 055.
