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......

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: 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......

a new path - what is the holy spirit experience

What is the Holy Spirit experience? So what is the Holy Spirit experience? I’m glad you asked. God provides proof of His presence in your life through the Holy Spirit experience. It’s accompanied by a tangible, miraculous, sign. It’s your personal revealing. It’s the reason Jesus came to earth. In the bible, the Holy Spirit is referred to in a number of ways: Holy Spirit, Holy Ghost, Spirit of God, and Spirit of Christ are all terms used to describe God’s Spirit that He sends to the world to live inside those......

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......
