What is revival?
A short description of revival from the Life Action website is “a renewed relationship with Jesus that revolutionizes relationships with others.” Another, more detailed description by well known pastor and writer John Piper states, “Revival is the sovereign work of God to awaken His people with fresh intensity to the truth and glory of God, the ugliness of sin, the horror of hell, the preciousness of Christ’s atoning work, the wonder of salvation by grace through faith, the urgency of holiness and witness, and the sweetness of worship with God’s people.”
Why is revival important?
Throughout the Old and New Testaments, as well as church history, God has sent revival in times of spiritual and moral decline to transform individuals, families, churches, communities, even entire nations. Our nation has been greatly impacted by national revivals. Some of the most important national revivals are the First Great Awakening (1730’s-40’s), the Second Great Awakening (1790’s-early 1800’s) and the Great Prayer Revival (1857-early 1900’s). These spiritual movements helped shape the spiritual and moral climate of our nation for generations to come. As a nation, we have gone the longest period of time in our history without a national revival.
What is a revival summit?
Designed for the entire church family, Life Action revival summits provide a one-of-a-kind experience for reconnecting with God and transforming relationships. Revival summits are scheduled for 8, 11 or 15 days (sometimes they go longer because people want to keep coming!) Our team presents the life transforming message of revival in age appropriate settings for children, youth and adults. Services include a time of musical worship, prayer, Bible teaching and testimony. Revival summits are designed to help individuals, families and churches seek God for personal and corporate revival.
