Testimonies

If only… I could feel safe

Kyra’s childhood was broken and unsafe. When she and her younger brother were adopted by people who believed in God, she began to feel safe. Not only did she have parents to rely on, she also realised she could trust God. When Kyra received the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues, she knew God had proved himself to her. She knows her family’s hope is in the Lord.

If only… I knew the truth

Despite always believing in God, Kyle was searching to find a way to know if he was saved. He watched videos online, read the Bible and went to a church, but it wasn’t until someone showed him the truth of how to be saved that he saw a way for God to prove Himself. After being baptised and filled with the Holy Spirit, Kyle’s search was over – he found salvation and a faithful God.

If only… my life was different

Brendan was a homeless alcoholic who did not know peace. After hitting rock-bottom, Brendan knew he had nothing to lose by giving God a chance. The moment he received the Holy Spirit, he knew God was real. He was baptised in water and his life instantly changed.

If only… I could have a baby

Jess was told that due to complications caused by polycystic ovary syndrome and endometriosis, she would not be able to conceive a child naturally. When she heard the gospel along with her fiancé, they were baptised and she received the Holy Spirit. They were married and later found out they were expecting a naturally conceived child. Jess is grateful to God for answering her prayers and giving her a healthy son.

If only… I found peace

After prayer, Harry found peace and healing from anxiety, but when he ran away from God, his life was full of strife again. Physical and mental struggles overwhelmed him, and he decided to turn back to God. He was baptised in water and received God’s Holy Spirit, speaking in other tongues. Now he knows God is with him, guiding him day by day.

If only… I felt like I belonged

Even though Brodie never had trouble fitting in, he always knew there had to be more to life. Now that he has found God, he has a life full of blessings and a place where he feels like he really belongs.

If only…..I could have my own family

Yarni started her relationship with God when she was young. As an adult she continued to look to Him and He healed her heartbreak from years of infertility. She was healed of Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, then, after 22 years of marriage and countless unsuccessful fertility treatments, Yarni found out she had conceived naturally. Yarni and her husband welcomed baby Samuel in April 2021.

If only…I could be healed

Jane was a busy mother of four when she was diagnosed with an incurable form of dermatitis. For a year, her hands were in constant pain and covered in a blistery rash. She tried everything to soothe her hands, but nothing worked. One day she called out to God and within four weeks her hands were completely healed. 

If only…I could be free from my addictions

Ben received God’s Holy Spirit when he was 12 years old but turned away from God not long after. He fell into a life of crime and drug abuse which led to a methamphetamine addiction. In desperation he asked God to help him, and Ben was healed from his drug addiction without suffering withdrawal symptoms.

If only…my life could change

Rose was drinking and going to parties from the time she was 11-years-old. She felt lost and alone and her relationships were broken. She saw her sister changed by God and decided she wanted to find the same truth. When she was 14-years-old, Rose was baptised by full immersion and received the Holy Spirit. Her relationships have been healed and she has her own young family. She can’t praise God enough.

If only…I could find peace

Barbra tried to fill the void in her life with drugs, alcohol and parties. She was shown the scriptures of salvation and was born again. Her new prayer language allowed her to talk directly to God and she discovered an amazing comfort and peace.

If only…my heart could be healed

Helen’s heart was broken after she lost her husband to cancer. She tried to drown her sorrows with alcohol but nothing worked. In 2018, she was baptised and spirit filled and her life immediately changed. Helen stopped drinking and started rejoicing. God healed her broken heart. He gave her a better life and she was saved from so many bad things in this world. Now Helen loves telling people about God, reading the Bible, and loves the new language God has placed in her. She loves the church and Jesus’s ministry, hearing about signs, wonders and miracles all the time. Her favourite scripture is ‘Come unto me, all ye who are heavy laden, and I will give you rest’ (Matthew 11:28).

If only…I could feel fulfilled

Growing up, Ellie didn’t know if God was real but always had the feeling that there was someone or something watching over her. She tried to fulfill her life with drinking and partying but was still empty and searching for something more. Then someone at work told her the truth about God and Jesus Christ. She was baptised by full immersion in water, received God’s Holy Spirit, speaking in other tongues while coming out of the water. Ellie knew she had found the truth because she discovered evidence that God was real.

If only…my life could turn around

46 years ago, life brought Cheryl to the point where she was planning her own suicide and that of her two pre-school aged children. Cheryl heard that she could have a personal experience with God where He could prove Himself and, although sceptical, she received the Holy Spirit and spoke out in a brand-new language as evidence of that.
Cheryl’s whole life turned around at that point. Her depression instantly left and so did her addiction to smoking and swearing. God cleaned up her life and has been her comfort and strength and truth ever since.

If only…I could find what’s missing

While Daniel grew up in a happy home, went to a good school and had good friends, he always felt there was something missing.
When he was baptised and spoke in tongues, the feeling that something was missing instantly left. His life changed in ways he didn’t expect and Daniel is so grateful to have found the truth.
