Course Description

The main teaching of Jesus was about the kingdom of God/kingdom of heaven. Jesus’ “method” of bringing in the kingdom was twofold: proclamation of the message of the kingdom, and demonstration of the kingdom in power and authority. In this class we will apply the theology of the kingdom to the application of the kingdom, especially as regards power ministries such as healing and deliverance.


  • Students will be familiar with the biblical texts on healing.
  • Students will be able to apply the theology of the kingdom of God in their experience, in healing and deliverance ministry.
  • Students will personally and corporately practice and experience life in God’s kingdom, especially in terms of the demonstration of power ministries.
