Our Mission is the releasing of individuals and generations into harmony and unity of body, soul, and spirit.
The Vision of 4-Life Ministries is to bring hope, peace and order out of conflict to individuals and communities through intentional focused intercessory prayer. Simply stated, it is inviting Christ to identify any lies we may unknowingly believe so they can be uprooted through a revelation of Truth. In Prayer we are able to hear His Voice that breaks into places that no human voice can. Through Prayer we make room for the Lord to reveal His truth to the wounded heart and mind, allowing us to have a personal encounter with the Lord Jesus. It is the Holy Spirit that leads us into truth, light, peace and hope.
