John G. Lake, was a leader in the Pentecostal movement that began in the early 20th century, and is known as a faith healer, missionary, and with Thomas Hezmalhalch, co-founder of the Apostolic Faith Mission of South Africa.
During his 1908–13 African missionary work, Lake played a decisive role in the spread of Pentecostalism in South Africa, the most successful southern African religious movement of the 20th century. After completing his missionary work in Africa, Lake evangelized for 20 years, primarily along the west coast of the United States setting up healing rooms and healing campaigns, and establishing churches.
His main vision was to train others to walk in the power of God. He trained many DHT’s (Divine Healing Technicians). Lake was influenced by the healing ministry of John Alexander Dowie.
John G. Lake Ministries internationally brings a complete Biblical message of the New Covenant way of life, as originally intended by our Lord, to His people. While the benefits of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection are available to all, John G. Lake Ministries are specifically looking for those who are not satisfied with the “status quo”. We unashamedly bring a revolutionary message to the Body of Christ and the world.
We believe that God is looking for a few serious, committed, and sold out people through whom He can show Himself strong. We believe that healing is only a part of the total Gospel of Jesus Christ. A large part, yes, but still only a part. We believe that God has provided a total Gospel with a total healing for the total man: spirit, soul, and body.
We believe that Jesus offered no excuse for not believing what He preached, and neither do we. We offer help and healing to anyone, anytime, for anything. We are thankful to Jesus for commissioning us to preach “a Gospel that works”. The sick are healed, the dead are raised, the good news is preached to the poor (not just the rich). Our mission is to eradicate sin, sickness, and unnecessary suffering through the proclamation and demonstration of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.
