Revival is at the heart of Arise Christian Fellowship. One of our core values is: “Without the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, we can do nothing.” The Word of God stirs us to live in that power:
- “My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power”—1 Corinthians 2:4–5
- “For the kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power.”—1 Corinthians 4:20
- “When the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you shall receive power, and you shall be My witnesses. . .”—Acts 1:8
Rekindling the Flame!
We regularly need a fresh touch from God, a fresh enduement of power. The passion of our first love for Christ dies down and needs to be stirred up again, just as Paul told Timothy:
- “For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.”—2 Timothy 1:6
- “Then their eyes were opened & they recognized Him. . . . Were not our hearts burning within us while He talked with us on the road . . .”—Luke 24:32
It is our desire at Arise to be in a state of being continually revived, continually being filled and refilled with the Holy Spirit, to press on for more of God, to
