the CONDITIONS for revival in Dallas


humility
In Pursuit of CONCENTRATION

OBJECTIVE:To concentrate the body of Christ in Dallas at the foot of the cross so they, as followers of Jesus Christ, would humbly and sacrificially distinguish themselves from the ways of the world.

To achieve this objective we encourage the body of Christ to:
  • UNDERSTAND the importance of self-evaluation through the confession of personal and corporate sins
  • EXEMPLIFY the attitude and lifestyle of Jesus Christ in your daily lives
  • IMPACT and encourage others to sacrificially live for Jesus Christ


prayer & fasting
In Pursuit of FOCUS

OBJECTIVE: To progressively focus the body of Christ in Dallas with prayer and fasting through the lives of individuals, as well as collectively come before the Lord to seek restoration.

To achieve this objective we encourage the body of Christ to:
  • APPROACH the Lord in a time of personal fasting and prayer
  • ACTIVELY fast and pray corporately for a unified purpose ~ for God to bring about a nationwide restoration
  • ENGAGE in unceasing prayer of expectation


holiness
In Pursuit of Being EXTRAORDINARY

OBJECTIVE: To increase the spiritual growth and development of the body of Christ in Dallas so that we constantly reflect the image of God in our daily lives and, by example, draw others closer to Him.

To achieve this objective we encourage the body of Christ to:
  • IDENTIFY the need to keep our eyes on Jesus Christ
  • RELY upon the Holy Spirit to know and experience a passionate and practical, life-transformation
  • INFLUENCE and impact the world in a disciplined manner which glorifies God


divine response
In Pursuit of RESULTS

OBJECTIVE: To further the daily pursuit of the spiritual virtues of faith, hope, and love of the church in Dallas, so we personally experience the hand of God working in our lives as we victoriously march through the stages of life.

To achieve this objective we encourage the body of Christ to:
  • RECOGNIZE the relativity of revival through faith
  • APPLY and implement a patient, steadfast perspective of eternal hope
  • ESTABLISH and maintain a relationship with others through love


xlviiiShelhamer, E.E., How to Experience Revival, (Springdale, PA: Whitaker House, 1984, p.7)
 
Revival is a " renewed conviction of sin and repentance,
followed by an intense desire to live in obedience to God.
It is giving up one’s will to God in deep humility." xlviii

- Charles Finney
