The Revival Process

couple_1.jpgLife Through the Word Ministries is firmly committed to facilitating revival and renewal in churches and other organizations.

Even though it seems that the word "revival" has fallen on "hard times" these days, we strongly believe in what it communicates.

Revival means "new life."  In every generation the body of Christ benefits from a fresh outpouring of newness of life.  We are thrilled when God graciously brings life to His people and new people are introduced to the life of God's amazing grace.

 Our approach is simple:

The Revival Premise

We believe, with all of our hearts, that God wants to bring revival and new life to His people.  We don't have to beg God to do this ... we just need to meet the conditions.   When we are hungry for God, He gracriously feeds us.  When thirsty, He gives us Living Water.  When we seek His face, we experience the Living God.

God wants to renew and revive us!

The Revival Promise

The God  of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after  you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.     1 Peter 5:10

 The Revival Process

We follow a five-step process to lay the foundation for genuine renewal, restoration, and revival:

Reception of the Living Word 

God often uses the scriptures to open our eyes to what His desires are.

Revelation of Principles

The way in which we live is vitally important.  God has instructions on living as Kingdom people.   

Psalm 1                      Ephesians 4:1

Recognition of Grace

Kingdom-living is not a human effort of trying harder, but a work of God through our trusting more.

Matthew 5:3              Hebrews 11:6

Renewal of Relationships

As we experience God's work, we draw closer to Him...and to one another.

Romans 5:1-5           Philippians 1:7-8

Restoration of Hope

Hope is the ability to see a path to the future.  Where there is no hope there is no endeavor.  In Christ, God's glorious plan is fulfilled-we are put back together and placed on our feet.

Isaiah 40:30-31        1 Thessalonians 1:3
