Sozo inner healing Ministry
What is Sozo?
Sozo/σῴζω is a Greek word in the New Testament of the Bible referencing personal salvation, but it also refers to people being physically healed and delivered from demons. Jesus came to σῴζω us or save us in every meaning of the word, eternal salvation, physical healing, freedom and deliverance from demons and demonic influence, or in other words a restoration from the damage of the fall.
There are many different Biblical counseling methods or inner healing styles. The Sozo ministry is a unique inner healing and deliverance ministry in which the main aim is to get to the root of those things hindering the client’s personal connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. With a healed connection with Father, Son and Holy Spirit they can walk in the destiny to which they have been called.
Sozo is an inner healing/deliverance ministry
Sozo is simple, fast, Spirit led and effective
Sozo finds issues in minutes instead of years
Sozo helps heal your relationship with God to enable you to fulfill your destiny
The vision of Tabernacle’s Sozo ministry is that each member is healed and has an open path of communication with the Godhead. We are also training Sozo teams so that the healing power of Sozo can reach the widest possible spectrum of people.
Jesus life, ministry, death and resurrection had a goal of the full restoration of the human person from the damage of the fall of humanity in the garden. Sozo is a greek word in the Bible representing salvation and is used interchangeably in the New Testament for physical healing, reconcilation with God, and deliverance from demonic oppression. When Jesus touched the leper, the leper was physically healed (Sozo) by Jesus power, emotionally healed by His love (Sozo) , and restored to social connection with others (Sozo) and by implication reconciled to God (Sozo). The image of God that was broken was being fully restored/saved/sozo-ed as a result of contact with Jesus. This is the goal of Sozo.
When someone becomes a believer in Jesus Christ there can still be areas of personal brokenness, etc that hinders one reaching their highest calling in God. This brokenness can come from lack of identity, demonic oppression (Christians cannot be possessed but they can be oppressed), believing lies about God or self, or emotional wounds to the soul. This is where Sozo comes in. Sozo is recognized worldwide as a method for restoration of the whole person. The Global site for this ministry method is: bethelsozo.com

A. Our Sozo ministers are loving and relatable. The session will be covered by God's love and peaceful. Also, you will be given a feedback form to communicate to our leadership team how your session went so we can be personally accountable and always grow and improve.
Q. My friend needs inner healing but is not yet a Christian, can they receive a Sozo?
A. Yes, we will minister to people wherever they are in their spiritual walk. If they are not Christian, the requirement is that during the session we will pray in Jesus name and connect to God as revealed in the Bible and they would need to pray this way also during the session and follow the lead of whoever is overseeing the Sozo and not invoke any other gods or religious practices.
Q. Do I need a specific issue/problem in order to get a session?
A. No, Like going to the dentist for a checkup, you can receive a session even if you don't have a known issue. This is actually common and people regularly receive ministry even without known issues and experience breakthrough nonetheless.
Q. Can a Christian have a demon or demonic influence?
A. We don't believe a Christian can be possessed as Christians are indwelt by the Holy Spirit, but Christians can be oppressed. Jesus told Peter "Get behind me Satan" which implies Peter had opened the doorway to demonic influence. Jesus taught that those who choose to live in unforgiveness can become tormented and no distinction between believers and unbelievers is mentioned.
Q. I don't need inner healing, I need a counseling session
A. Our pastoral team can usually meet with people and do counseling. Contact us to set up an appointment
Q. I am looking for a specific type of ministry. Can you help me?
A. We have a variety of differently gifted people. Some specialize in dealing with generational curses and wounds, some are more traditionally grounded in Sozo, some have a mix of styles. We recommend signing up for a Sozo and if that doesn't help you, we can refer you to someone else either on our team or in the area.
