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......

Personal Story: Bronwyn

My parents introduced me to the truth about the gospel when I was a child.  I knew I had to repent, as I couldn’t achieve my own righteousness. The Lord gave me that same powerful proof described in Acts 2 in the Bible.  I asked Him for the Holy Spirit and knew without a doubt that He had answered when I miraculously spoke out in a fluent language that I had never learnt.  I’ll never forget that moment and tears of joy flowed as I felt an amazing peace and happiness. I......

Personal Story: Adriana

Growing up in a Catholic family I had always believed God was our Creator and we got taught to follow His commandments – but had no knowledge of what the Lord really wants from us. In 2010 we moved from Melbourne to Brisbane as a happy family, but not long after that my marriage of 20 years ended, leaving me with an uncertain future and the worries of raising two children as a single mother.  That same year, on Easter Sunday, my daughter and I went to a friend’s house and she......

My cheeky chop daughter has turned 2! And for some reason I feel compelled to share her story. I know many parents refer to their kids as their ‘miracle’ or ‘gift’ but this kid truly fits the bill. When I was 14 I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (a common story, I know). At this point the GP flagged that this would affect my fertility but I’m 14 so no biggy. Sometime in my early 20’s I wound up in ED with epic abdo pain. The hospital does an ultrasound to......

From birth, I have attended the Revival Centres Church. Many could say that my support of the church was purely due to following family traditions or expectations, however there is a bible based reason for my continued diligence. At the age of 10, I received the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in an unknown tongue and afterwards I was baptised as directed in the bible in Acts 10:43-48. The fact that I have experienced the same outpouring of the Holy Spirit as on the day of Pentecost is proof that it......

Tania

From an early age, I was constantly interested is the things of God and the purpose of life. I had sought this understanding through religion and institutions, gaining a lot of philosophic knowledge along the way, still remaining hungry for a close relationship with our Maker. After meeting several people who told me their account of healing and overcoming some tough experiences whilst reaching out to God and receiving the Holy Spirit, I pursued in my heart to go after this on my own. At a time when I really needed God......

Personal Story: Robyn Ulhorn

Robyn’s story I left a mainline church in my early twenties as I couldn’t get answers to my questions. I still believed in God but I did not know God. In 1977 I received the Holy Spirit with the bible evidence of speaking in tongues. This is when I knew God was alive and dwelling  inside me . Also this was my personal prayer language direct to God. According to scripture I had to be baptised in water by full immersion. As I had a fear of going under water this did......
