Jesus said: “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing…” (John 14:12). We at Aldersgate Renewal Ministries believe that includes United Methodists today! More than believing that miracles really happened, and beyond believing that God still performs miracles, Jesus invites us to “Preach…heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, and cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.” [Mt 10:7-8]
The question is, where can Methodists who are longing to live in the supernatural learn about our Methodist heritage of supernatural ministry, how God is moving supernaturally kn and through Methodists today, and how to be used by God in supernatural ways?
