In My Own Words
The course of my life was changed upon hearing the voice of God. The person I’ve become and the path I’ve followed has been continuously defined and refined by prophetic revelation. The call on my life compels me every day. I burn with a passion for God’s people to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church, to decipher the times and seasons and to strategize for the future in order to see God’s kingdom come and will be done.I was born into a Baptist family that attended church a bit more than occasionally. It was in Baptist church that I first identified myself as Christian. I had been to the altar to confess, repent and receive Christ as my personal Lord and Savior, and I participated in public confession and identification with Jesus through water baptism. I honor my roots.
In 1984, in the darkest hour of my life, without any provocation, understanding or expectation, in a time when I couldn’t have been further from my faith, I heard the voice of God for the first time. It was so loud. I believe it was audible. The words were clear and distinct. I had not known that the Lord could speak to me. In all my early years of Sunday school, I had never once been taught that God speaks. It was astonishing, firghtening and inescapable. His words brought me face to face with the most monumental choice of my entire life to that point. I made my choice. I chose Him. In response, God saved my life and my marriage. It was a miracle.
In 1994, I was asked to give my testimony at a women’s retreat. I had never been to a women’s retreat. I had never given a testimony. I had experienced God’s voice once and watched him do miracles in my family, but in my mind, I was a Baptist girl. I did not have a Pentecostal or Charismatic understanding of scripture, but I did know God, and I wanted to speak up about what he had done for me.
It was at this retreat that I received prayer for baptism with the Spirit, as they called it. A young woman put her hands on me and said some words I can’t remember. I felt hot, felt faint, my knees began to buckle and suddenly, I was sitting in a chair. I could not really hear or concentrate on what was being said to me. Something had happened. I wasn’t sure what. The next morning, I began to speak in tongues.
During the communion time that very next morning, quite unexpectedly, I heard the voice – the one from years before. Jesus was calling me to a life of service in vocational ministry. Stunned, shocked and weeping, I said Yes. Suddenly, I began to hear the voice in torrents of instruction. For several hours, He spoke to me. I was told in detail what to do for the next five years and that I was entering into a time of preparation. I had known nothing of the Holy Spirit. I had never read my Bible all the way through. Now, all was changed. I was changed. I was a different woman. I have never turned back. That was March 22, 1994.
About the Dragonfly
God is moving on the earth, through all his people, not a single denomination. All have something to contribute. All are needed in this hour. Of this I am convinced and the Dragonfly keeps this in remembrance for me. I am not much of a mystic seeing symbols and signs in everything, everywhere, all the time. However, I believe God gives signs and uses symbols, dreams and visions to convey messages to his people.Why a dragonfly? It certainly isn’t a very traditional or religious symbol to mark service to God or what I mention above. But I didn’t choose it. In a vision during a time of prayer, a brightly hued enormous dragonfly flew to my feet. I climbed on its back and it flew to a field filled with flowers. I “knew” we were to gather pollen. Moving from flower to flower, I gathered with my arms until I was covered in bright mustard colored pollen. I was laughing and joyful, and the Lord said, “It’s time for cross-pollination.” The vision ended.
As is my practice, when I experience a phenomena like this, I tuck it away to ponder, pray and wait for greater interpretation and understanding of how it applies to my life. Over the next few months, this vision would become very significant to me. Within weeks, I was introduced to key leaders in other “streams” of the Pentecostal Charismatic Renewal movement and invited to participate in various events and studies. I was initially invited because of my Foursquare affiliation and further invited because I had embraced God’s word to me. Cross-pollination had begun.
Statement of Faith
We Believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, eternal, and authoritative Word of God. Matthew 24:35; John 16:13; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:21; 1 Thessalonians 2:13
We Believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10, 11; Matthew 28:19; John 14:16
We Believe in the deity of Jesus Christ who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died a vicarious and atoning death, was bodily resurrected, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in Glory. John 1:1, 14; 20:28-29; Philippians 2:6-11; Isaiah 9:6; Colossians 2:9; Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:34-35; Isaiah 7:14; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15; 7:26-27; 1 John 3:5; 1 Peter 2:22-24; Matthew 4:23; Luke 6:17-19; John 3:2; Colossians 1:14, 20; Romans 5:8-9; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Luke 24:4-7; 36-48; Revelation 1:17-18; Acts 2:33; 5:30-31; 1 Peter 3:22, Acts 1:11; Philippians 2:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 1:10, 4:13-18; John 14:1-3
We Believe that justification by faith in the atonement of Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential to the salvation of lost and sinful man. Salvation is a work of God’s grace not works by man. Romans 3:24-25; John 3:3-7; 1 John 5:11-13; Ephesians 2:1-16; Revelation 5:9; Acts 4:12; 1 Corinthians 6:11
We Believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer at regeneration and is our abiding helper, teacher, comforter and guide. We believe in the Baptism with the Holy Spirit as an experience distinct from regeneration bestowed by Jesus. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit; His indwelling by which the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life, His empowering of the Church and the Christian that includes the supernatural gifts for life, work, and worship. John 14:15-16; 14:26; 16: 13-14; Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; 2: 1-4; 10:44-46; Isaiah 59:18-21; Jeremiah 33:31; 1 Corinthians 12, 14
We Believe in the return of Jesus Christ to consummate His Kingdom, in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. John 5:28-29; Mark 14:62; 2 Thessalonians 1:2-10; Revelation 1:5-7; 20:4-5; 11-12
We Believe the prime agency for the work of God’s Kingdom is the Christian local church functioning under the sovereignty of our Lord Jesus Christ. To the church have been entrusted the ordinances of the Believer’s Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Acts 2:41-47; 16:4-5; Matthew 16:18; 28:18-20; Ephesians 1:22-23; 1 Corinthians 12; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
We Believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. John 17:11, 21-23; Romans 12:4-5; Ephesians 4:11-16
Live with passion and in love with God and people ever deeper every day.
Take seriously always, express gratitude continually, and delight in joyfully with a whole heart, the wonder-full privilege of serving God and His people.
Cultivate a humble boldness to preach the word of God in spirit and truth.
Foster, build, and restore confidence in God among people, those who know Him and those who are yet to know him, in order that they would recognize a personal call from the Lord and work to fulfill it extending the work and mission of Jesus Christ. Confidence meaning a deep, abiding, unrelenting, unapologetic, passionate belief in who He is, what he has said and is saying; a bold believing trust and hope in Him that raises its voice to what is true, takes risks to move forward, and endures to the fulfilling of His promise for our lives.
