Baptism of Love
Leif Hetland
There are various baptisms in regard to our walk with God: salvation, water, fire. But there is one baptism that is largely overlooked, and even unrecognized. This baptism brings the greatest healing and freedom to every believer that has experienced it, a Baptism of Father God's love.
Rodney Hogue
Based on a Christian frame work, the author leads the readers to the place of being willing to take the risk of releasing their offenders and learn to live in freedom. In the book the reader will see the necessity of forgiveness to release every offender in their life.
Experiencing Father's Embrace
Jack Frost
Experiencing Father's Embrace shows you how you can personally feel your Father's loving and comforting embrace, and points out areas that may be hindering you from experiencing a more intimate relationship with your Creator.

Spring 2024

Steve Wilson
Humility finds little value in our modern culture. It is exceedingly rare in politics and has all but disappeared from our media and from most of our entertainment. And most disturbing is that much of what we see in the media presenting a “Christian message” shows little signs of humility.
Kingdom Honor
Gary Montoya
When you serve your church and your leaders with a servant's heart, your gifting and calling will be revealed, developed, and fulfilled!
The Hidden Power of Prayer & Fasting
Mahesh Chavda
God has provided a way to turn certain defeat into victory-and demonic strongholds into highways of His love and power. When defeat looks you in the face, The Hidden Power of Prayer and Fasting gives you the power to unlock the Holy Spirit within you!

Gifts, Fruit & The Sound of Effective Ministry
Steve & Sally Wilson
To be effective in ministry our life must display both the character and power of God. This means that growing both the fruit of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit are crucial to fulfilling our calling. This booklet focuses on the process and context for developing the fruit of the Spirit so that the character of Jesus can be fully formed in us.
Steve Backlund
"Nothing happens in the Kingdom unless a declaration is made."Believers everywhere are realizing the power of declarations to empower their lives. You may be wondering, "What are declarations and why are people making them?" or maybe, "Aren't declarations simply a repackaged 'name it and claim' heresy?"

“This online class has opened up opportunities [for me] I would have not been able to attend. It’s the next best thing to being there in person.” – Gwen, DSSM Student
