His Desire: Everybody’s Well

everybody to be well, and HE sent His Word to make sure we would know it.”

Have Faith & Hope

“I want people to know that God is a good God.
He does want to answer prayers; all we have to do is have faith and hope.
Sometimes life is hard, but God helps us get through.”

Co-Founder – Lakewood Church, Speaker & Author

Wrong Believing & Right Believing

“If we’re honest, we all have some measure of wrong believing in our lives.
If you don’t believe this, all you need to do is ask yourself,
‘Have I often felt anxious, worried, or fearful that the worst
would happen to me and my loved ones?

What you believe is very powerful. If you have toxic emotions of fear, guilt and depression,
it is because you have wrong thinking, and you have wrong thinking because of wrong believing.

Wrong believing puts people in a prison. Even though there are no physical shackles,
wrong believing causes its inmates to behave as though they were incarcerated in a
maximum-security penitentiary. What you believe is powerful.


If you can change what you believe, you can change your life!”
~ Joseph Prince,
Author, Co-Founder & Pastor – New Creation Church
