They deliver a powerful message to the Body of Christ based on fresh revelations from the Epistles of Paul. Their presentation of the Gospel is with rare clarity and depth causing changed lives, healing and freedom from the past and religious bondages. Signs, wonders, and the impartation of the manifest presence of Christ in the heart of the believers always accompany their preaching of the Word.
