Personal Story: James Daley

James’ story I was brought up in a christian family from a child. My parents regularly attended the Revival Church in Coffs Harbour, which meant I had a firm understanding of the Bible from a young age. I transitioned from homeschool to a public high school with a strong grounding in the Word of God, which helped me make a stand to other kids my age. I also experienced the healing power of God. I prayed at a mid week meeting with other spirit filled people and I was completely healed of a skin......

Personal Story: Justine

I was brought up always going to church and knowing there was a God but when I was 11 I had my first direct experience with God, where I received the Holy Spirit and spoke in a language I didn’t know. From that moment I knew all the things I’d heard when I was growing up were true and that God was real. In my life I’ve had to call on God for many things; from social struggles, family issues to physical injuries and God has intervened in all of these. There......

Personal Story: Bruce

My testimony began in 1989 when I found myself at a meeting after making a commitment to my wife and children that I would go with them if it was raining and would not play golf, as was my usual thing to do on Sundays. My wife, who had become Spirit-filled 12 months before, was taking our four children to meetings in Launceston, about 50 km away from where we were living. I had been to some church activities before and met the people and noticed there was a conviction that I......

Personal Story: Roxie

My name is Roxie and I was taken to church meetings as a child aged four. At age eight, I started to think about life and wondered what was the point of life to just live day-by-day for what purpose? I asked this question of my parents and other adults and was never satisfied or eased by the answer and still remained anxious. I knew that people from our church had received something special from God and so I started to have prayer and seek for the Holy Spirit for myself. At......

Personal Story: Brigitte

I grew up in country NSW with rugged and beautiful scenery. I loved looking at nature which I believed was created by God. When I saw plants and insects under a microscope, I was in awe of God. As a child, I went to church to get to know God and Jesus. I prayed to God and Jesus. I read my Bible. As I got older, I attended different churches and became confused. What I saw and heard was often contradictory and people’s opinions often replace Gods’ Word. I felt nature was......

Personal Story: Vlad

I turned to the Lord in prayer asking Him to show me the way. In no time at all I was told by a work mate what I needed to do to be saved so I took the Bible directive and was baptised. I came up out of the water speaking in a brand new language and from then on I knew the Lord. I used to smoke two or three packets of cigarettes per day… I use to smoke two or three packets of cigarettes per day, but with God now......

Personal Story: Veronica

I was Spirit-filled at the age of 23, having been raised in a traditional religion where I found I was groping in the dark to find God. As soon as I saw the scriptures on baptism, I was baptised and within 10 minutes, I received the Holy Spirit, speaking in a new, fledgling language I had never learnt. The lady beside me turned to me and said ‘you are going to have a wonderful life’. Many things have happened since that have borne that out. the absolute reliability of the Lord… At......

Personal Story: Edward

I was challenged one day about my beliefs in a mainline religion. My arguments seemed flawed. I was shown that when people received the Holy Spirit there was an accompanying sign of speaking in tongues. Out of curiosity I went along to see and hear speaking in tongues. Many questions were answered not by opinions or tenets but by direct Bible verses. I was baptised that day and received the Holy Spirit five days later with the bible evidence of speaking in tongues. I was instantly healed of alcoholism… I was instantly......

Personal Story: Celia

My father was a Presbyterian minister so I grew up going to church, and believing that God existed, but I never saw him do anything, or answer anybody’s prayer, and it seemed to me that He was far away, and that I did not know Him. In my teenage years I rebelled against pretty much everything, and when even my most desperate prayers weren’t answered I gave up on God as well. I succeeded in making a mess of my life I succeeded in making a mess of my life, mainly by......
