Personal Story: Louise

I grew up in a very loving family. We didn’t go to church, but I always believed in God. Never went without anything. Finished school started my first job. Not long after I was married. Due to the loss of my dad, a pregnancy which didn’t work out and having achieved financial goals, I began thinking there must be more to life. I started asking questions about life and God, went along to a friend’s church to see what it was like. I worked with a guy for seven years and noticed......

Personal Story: Jacky

I wasn’t brought up in any religion and was open minded, always finding myself reading books about different philosophies and looking for truth and purpose in life.  I was invited to a Revival Centres Church meeting and decided to get baptised in water to see if there was anything in this experience. I was praying and spoke in an unknown tongue in the baptismal tank and instantly knew God was alive, I’d found the truth and happiness I’d been searching for.  In 1987 I had prayer for a damaged disc in my......

Personal Story: Jack

For whatever reason, growing up I always believed there had to be a God despite not being raised to think that way. I considered myself to be a Christian but wasn’t all that different from other people. It just so happened that I went to high school with someone from Revival Centres. One day we started talking about God which compelled me to take action on this faith I had. I believed that the Bible was the word of God and that if there was any source of authority to instruct one......

Personal Story: Pastor Fred Wade

Hi my name is Fred Wade. My Story how my life changed from despair to absolute Joy with a great outlook on life is that I was once addicted to drugs , alcohol , cigarettes and had no concern about immoral behaviour . I had in my teens tried to look for God but all I could see in Religion was double standards and outrageous difference to what was written in scripture I was told at the age of 31 that the Lord through his word had a simple answer to mine,......

Personal Story: Rita

Rita’s story I had tried many churches in my life and after seeing much hypocrisy, I became an unbeliever. After an earthquake hit Newcastle I sat outside and wondered, “if there was a God then the bible was his word”. I knew the bible said that God would return when these things were happening. Not long after, people living nearby told me that they knew God as they had an experience with him. I was sceptical, but had watched their testimony for months and saw clean living people with a joy and......

Personal Story: Emma

I was brought up a Christian, but wait! Don’t write me off just yet. As a child I was brought along to church every Sunday (I would say dragged, but that would be untrue, I really enjoyed coming to church. There was singing, people to play with and often biscuits). We read from the bible. The pastor talked a lot about how the Holy Spirit was important. How it removes the futility from life and death. For as long as I can remember I have seen and heard people using all the......

Personal Story: Axel

I have been brought up in a family who attend the Revival Centres Church where we believe that God answers our prayers and He is active in our lives. We went to meetings on a Sunday, housemeetings on Wednesday nights and assembly activities whenever they were on. Listening to many talks and reading the bible, I realised I needed to seek for the Holy Spirit as evidenced in the bible by speaking in tongues.   At a Freshwater Creek Christmas camp, I started speaking in tongues while at a seekers meeting and......

Personal Story: Michael

Alcohol was destroying my life In April 1990 after 16 years of marriage and four children. My life was ruined because of alcoholism. After an argument, I left home to sort my self out. Although I had tried in the past, I just couldn’t change. Why is my life a mess? In desperation I called out to God-“The sun rises and sets every day for thousands of years but I am only here for a short life. Why am I here, why did you make me, why is my life such a......

Personal Story: Glenn

Having left home when I was 16 years old, I managed to get involved in just about everything that was not wholesome and sound and by the time I got to 18 I was a drug dealer and became ill as a result of my drug habits. This turned out to be life threatening. I was given at that time 3 months to live. I returned home to be cared for by my parents. Being the kind of people they were, they tried what they could to help me and took me......
