Deborah Williams loves the body of Christ Jesus and is dedicated to helping us grow up to full stature and understanding our Authority in Him. Called to preach at the age of 9, filled with the Holy Ghost at 12, she loved Jesus throughout her life. However, after a bitter divorce she felt condemned by the Church and drifted into drugs and depression.
After 2 years of confusion, she ended up sitting down with her Father’s shotgun, stock on the floor, toe on the trigger and the muzzle against her throat. But the Lord intervened. He said, “What if there is a heaven and there is a hell?” This thought arrested her. She took her toe off the trigger and answered Him with her first clear thought in weeks. “I’ve been too wicked. There is no way you could still love Me.”
Instantly, the loud, commanding audible voice of God demanded, “Go get your Bible!” She thought, “I don’t know where my Bible is.” Immediately she had a vision of it on the spare bedroom closet shelf under some blankets. In amazement, she found her Bible exactly where she had “seen” it. Laying the shotgun aside, she sat down and opened the Bible. “Oh, great,” she thought when it fell open to Deuteronomy. “What could possibly be there?” She had never understood the Old Testament and had no use for it, so she reached out to turn the page. Before she could, the same loud, audible voice commanded, “READ!
As she looked back down where her Bible had opened, these were the words her eyes landed upon: “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life…that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life…” 30:19.
She fell on her face before God and she was forever changed. After a lifetime of serving organized religion she finally knew that God loved HER no matter what she had done or how she had failed Him, and He had a purpose for her. Over the next few months she fell in love with the prophets of the Old Testament, well, the entire Bible really. God confirmed her call as a Prophet (even though she was clueless as to the meaning,) and off to Bible School He sent her!

What We Believe
The Bible: We believe the Bible is the inerrant Word of God. It is the absolute truth and was written by men moved upon by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It is the foundation for all our beliefs and practices as believers in the LORD Jesus Christ. (2 Timothy 3:16)
The Trinity: We believe there is one God who manifests Himself in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).
Father God: We believe there is but one living and true God, everlasting, of infinite power, wisdom and goodness; Maker and Preserver of all things, both visible and invisible. And in the unity of this Godhead, there are three Persons of one substance of eternal being, and equal in holiness, justice, wisdom, power, and dignity; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
Jesus: He is the sinless Son of the Most High God, born of a virgin who was breathed upon by the Holy Spirit. Jesus is the foundation of all of our Christian faith. He is the Lamb of God, the Perfect Sacrifice for the sins of all mankind (1 Corinthians 5:7; 2 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus is the Risen Savior and Lord (1 Corinthians 15:17). Jesus is the Healer (1 Peter 2:24). Jesus is the Baptizer in the Holy Ghost (Mark 1:8, Acts 2:24). Jesus is the Soon Coming King (2 Timothy 4:1).
The Ministry of the Holy Spirit: We believe in the supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit, including the nine gifts of the Spirit listed in 1 Corinthians 12:8-10. We also believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues (Acts 2:1-4).
The Ministry of the Body of Christ: We believe God has placed within every Christian unique gifts and talents that are to be used to bless others in the Body of Christ (1 Peter 4:10).
