The Power Of The Gospel  

What is the power of the gospel? Bill Johnson describes two powerful types of ministry and the need for both: covert and overt. Bill exhorts us to walk in the privilege of faith to boldly confess and make clear proclamations of the gospel of the kingdom. We must become believing believers who share of the gospel as all of heaven moves at the sound of our voice!

Epoch Seasons And Kairos Moments  

When the Israelites crossed over the Jordan River, God crossed them over into a new season where He began doing things through them instead of just to them. In the same way, as we walk forward in faith into our new seasons, God brings us into divine moments and opportunities. Let’s be attentive to the new thing He is doing in our lives and in the world, always in tune to His leading.

Mercy and Breakthrough  

Before an extended time of prayer ministry, Pastor Eric shares about the faith of Bartimaeus, a blind man who pursued Jesus for healing. In order to ask for the breakthrough we seek, we first have to know what it is we need mercy for. The Lord is tender and merciful, and He longs to bring us into abundance in every area of our lives. May each of us move toward Jesus and pursue the healing we need!

The Way Of Faith  

The Holy Spirit of confidence in the Father has taken up residence in us, and He empowers us for a life of faith--the Bible even tells us that our faith gives God great pleasure. So what about our questions? In this sermon, Pastor Bill teaches on the importance of mystery in building our faith, reminding us that questions raised in an atmosphere of faith lead us to revelation. As we behold His glory in the midst of mystery, He will transform our perception and increase our faith and freedom in who He is!

Give Them Something to Eat  

Even in the midst of amazing signs and wonders, Jesus was constantly molding His disciples to be more like Him. He never lost sight of the importance of loving and serving others while keeping His eyes set on the big picture of His calling. Our purpose is much the same: to run after the destiny God has for our lives while daily partnering with Him to meet the needs of those around us. Pay attention to the small, day-to-day testimonies you encounter--they will shape you into the person He designed you to be!

Positioned For Revival  

God has many dreams for mankind, and He has chosen us to partner with Him and make them happen. Will we embrace our assignment to pray for our leaders and live our lives with His goodness on display? If we choose to cooperate with God’s heart for the world, He will renew our cities, nations, and world, positioning us for the greatest revival we have ever known.

The Brilliance of the Early Church  

As long as there are people who have not heard the name of Jesus, Christians have important work to do here on earth. We have the privilege of advancing the gospel in our world, and as we do so, we are called to the challenge of pursuing both quantity and quality in our ministry. In this teaching, Pastor Eric shares practical ways to live in one accord as we move toward the intersection of quantity in quality in bringing God’s kingdom to earth.

The Year of BREAKTHROUGH  

2017 is destined to be a year of new beginnings and breakthrough because we serve a God who is constantly progressing us forward in Him. But how will we posture ourselves in the process? Pastor Bill shares the significance of receiving words over our lives and recording them so we can keep our eyes on the future’s promises as we move forward. Even if the prize seems far off, we are called to shout for joy in all things, positioning ourselves for powerful increase.

The Generosity of the Father  

Dave Harvey, a pastor at Bethel's School of Supernatural Ministry, speaks on the generosity of the Father.

God Has No Rival  

At this time in history, we have a unique opportunity to invest in our world with the work of the Kingdom, sharing the goodness of God with those around us. We will be empowered to shape culture when we walk under God’s influence and allow His presence to transform our paradigms and perspectives. Now is a time not to shrink back into a self-centered focus, but to set our affections on God and invest in the powerful work He is doing!

Did You Get What You Came For?  

After a time of prayer and commissioning for his call back to England, Paul Manwaring shares a reflection on living fully wherever God brings us, asking the question “did you get what you came here for?” Exploring values of Bethel Redding like worship, identity, family, and the prophetic, he invites us to seek the depths of God’s heart in every area of our lives, in every season.

The Heart Of A Prophet  

After a ministry time of prayer focused on reconciliation and relational healing, Pastor Bill shares his heart and biblical insight on carrying the heart of a prophet as God prepares to move in our lives and the world. When seasons change and He begins to do something new, he speaks to his prophets. As we partner with Him to move toward what He has purposed, He will draw nations to Himself. Our responsibility is simply to say “yes!”

Cultivating Prophetic Families  

What would happen if our children were raised in a house of dreamers who anticipate the voice of God in every facet of life? In this sermon, Kris Vallotton shares five practical ways to inspire children in the prophetic and create a strong spiritual atmosphere in your home. There is no such thing as a junior Holy Spirit--let’s raise up our kids as powerful forces in the Kingdom!

I Am Thankful  

As Thanksgiving approaches, are we aware of the power of gratitude in our lives? Thanksgiving is a weapon God has given us--it can usher us into the presence of God and create an atmosphere of worship in our lives. Rather than being controlled by our circumstances, let’s be a people who respond to God’s unending goodness with unending thanks.

Creating Context for Culture  

As believers, we are not simply spectators in culture, but stewards of it. So how can we manifest the Kingdom in our everyday lives? Pastor Eric shares the importance of knowing and engaging with the culture around us before we can effectively bring Jesus into it. Our generation longs for the truth and authenticity found in the Gospel--let’s move forward to advance the Kingdom!

God's Way To Blessing  

The anointing of the day of the cancellation of debt is here! Pastor Bill Johnson exhorts us to be a people who demonstrate kingdom generosity and give joyfully. Bill weaves sermons from 2 Corinthians 9 with Philippians 4 to show how God is able to make all grace abound to give extravagantly and be a blessing to the nations. The Lord receives honor through generosity, gratefulness, and when the Body works together for kingdom purposes. Bill turns our gaze upwards, reminding us that there is a day coming where what you have done on earth is the only thing that will matter eternally.

New Territories  

Saying “yes” to Jesus means saying “yes” to movement. He invites us to walk into new territory with Him, advancing His Kingdom as we bridge the great divide between the church and culture at large. All it takes it faithfulness to live with fruitful momentum is responding to His invitation! Let’s be Jesus-followers who move from one degree of glory to the next and fight to believe He will finish what He started in us.

Money  

In the words of Bethel’s long-time CFO, Stephen De Silva, we are not meant to be ruled by money but to be rulers over money. Knowing God’s heart for our finances is crucial if we are going to steward practical life well in the Kingdom. Let’s adjust to His perspective so we can come out of our bondage and enter a place of strength and authority over money!

Emotional Prosperity  

Before we can effectively lead our families and others, we need to know how to lead ourselves in emotional health so that the life we are leading is sustainable. Being individually well is key to thriving inside of community! In this teaching, Jason Vallotton shares how we can get our needs met in body, soul, and spirit so we can partner with Jesus to express the joy of His kingdom. This message is from week 5 of Bethel’s Life Series.

Sexuality  

God created sex, and He intends for us to enjoy it. So why is there so much shame attached to it our culture, and how can we approach it with His perspective? How can we raise up powerful children who fight for purity? In this teaching, Kris Vallotton offers steps to developing a healthy sexual culture in your marriage, your family, and your world.
