General explanation

The Bethel Sozo Ministry was birthed in Bethel Church, Redding, California in 1997. It is a Holy Spirit lead inner healing and deliverance ministry where a person is helped to discover the lies believed about Father God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that can be related to early childhood wounds that have constantly been undermining their belief system at the foundation, from experiencing a joyful and victorious lifestyle and intimate walk with God. Throughout the session the focus is on the issues the person is dealing with not sin or the devil.

Through the sozo process, the truth about what God says and thinks about them are discovered from God Himself and this truth breaks strongholds and belief patterns that set will them free to discover their identity and become the sons and daughters that Father God destined them to be through Jesus.

The aim is to get to the root of those things hindering your personal connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Thus with a healed connection with Father, Son and Holy Spirit you can walk in the destiny to which you have been called.

The Sozo session is not a counseling session.

The Sozo team made up of one or more team members will sit down with you and with the help of the Holy Spirit walk you through the process of freedom and wholeness.
