2016

year in review These are the numbers reflecting the total amount for each respective category, new birth, baptism, etc. from every area of ministry from both our St. Augustine and Valdosta locations, all our outreaches and missions endeavours.

Beyond these numbers, 2016 was a great year for Anchor Faith Church! We hosted multiple ministers over the course of the year, including the Hagins again with Living Faith Crusade. We saw Anchor Faith Valdosta celebrate 5 years with a spectacular conference. We hosted our first live recording & worship night, began monthly prayer & fasting services, participated in Ancient City Kids Day in the largest capactiy than we've ever done. We had Family Day, Mother's Day and Father's Day event services. We got involved with Somebody Cares St. Augustine to help those in need, and had our own Ignite Our City event where we were able to reach out and help others. We also had the great priveledge to partner with Convoy of Hope and Bridge of Life Church to get much needed supplies into the hands of those who suffered loss after Hurricane Matthew. And to top it off we've continued to walk by faith and trust God with the contract on the Ponce De Leon Mall. This is His land, set aside for His purpose! This truly has been an amazing year for us as a church body. Rejoice with us!

VISION 2017

// MANDATE //

KINGDOM MANDATE prophecy from kenneth e. hagin

You are right on the verge, right on the verge of the greatest move and manifestation of the Spirit of God that this world has ever seen. You're right on the edge of it; and like on standing on the creek bank about to jump in. And if you'll give the more earnest heed unto the things which you have heard, not only those things that you've heard about faith and those things that you've heard about healing, but also those things which

the greatest move and manifestation of the spirit of God - word of knowledge from kenneth e. hagin in 1980

you have heard about the Holy Spirit, and the things that you've heard about angels, and the things that you've heard about Divine Visitation, (for remember that it was prophesied of Joel of old that in the last days, saith the Lord, I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams, and upon My hand maidens will I pour out My Spirit, and they will prophecy), so not only will it be that the young men will prophecy, but the young women will prophecy, and the anointing and the ouTtflow of the Spirit of God shall be great and amazing in those days -- for there shall be a visitation of angels. Be not afraid, but yet take heed even in these areas, for Satan himself has at times come as an angel of light. But examine things in the light of the scriptures and walk in the light of the Word of God. And sometimes the angel will give you direction, and even in your finances, and the direction that would save you life, as in the case of the shipwreck of Paul, and direction concerning ministry, as the salvation of Cornelius and his household, and Philip as the angel spoke to him to go down to Gaza and the Ethiopian was converted. And so in these days there shall come a mighty manifestation of the Spirit, and the work that God intended should be done in these last days shall be accomplished. For the time is short and things must be speeded up. And you'll learn much faster spiritual things then those of yesteryear.


ANCHOR FAITH CHURCH

// 13

And you'll develop much faster and it'll be said of some they just virtually matured overnight. And they shall go forth to speak in the name of the Lord,

Because they understood the principles of faith They'll understand the principles of the Kingdom They'll understand the Laws of God They'll operate and minister in that area Nothing will be hid from them. And though there are some who stand here now and have operated in a measure in those areas in times passed, and because they've let these things slip, they themselves in ministry and in life have slipped. And they shall be restored. Yea, they shall even be restored this night. And the manifestation shall come and the glory of the Lord shall rest upon it and rest upon thee. And His glory shall be seen round about and the cloud of God will come and fill the house. And, yea, it will seem as though the whole building is filled with smoke, because you see, the glory of God shall be in manifestation. And great, great shall be the noise thereof and praise and adoration that shall go up from His people. And it shall be noised abroad. And men from afar shall here it. And men from afar shall here of it. And men from afar shall come to behold it. For the Lord shall be in manifestation in those days in all ways that He ever manifested Himself, both in the Old Covenant and in the New Covenant, plus the multiplying of the Spirit in the power of God of these days. For men, as men grow more wicked and more wicked, and as Satan, because he knows his time is short, and all of his cohorts and evil spirits go about as never before to devour, so the power of God, the glory of God, shall be increased and shall be multiplied. And it will flow like a mighty river, flow like a mighty river. Yea, the Spirit of God will flow like a mighty river. And many, not only hundreds, not only thousands, but millions will be swept into the flow of that river, and shall flow forth in praised and glory. For the glory, for

the glory of the Lord is in manifestation. The glory of the Lord will be seen of the face of the saints. The glory of God shall shine forth until men will walk in a place of business and people will fall on their knees and cry out to God though be said nothing. And women will walk into a place of business and people will fall and their knees and cry out to God though she opened not her mouth. For the glory of God will shine through. Yea, the glory of God will shine through. Yea, the glory of God will shine through. For the manifestation of His power, and the manifestation of His glory, is reserved until this hour! And if it could be told, if it could be told in a way that you could see it, even with the eyes of your spirit, if it could be displayed at this moment before you in a tangible form that you could see with your physical eye, it would be very difficult for you to believe that which shall shortly come to pass. It would be very difficult for you to accept it. But as you walk with the Lord, as you prepare your heart, as you feed upon His word, as you listen to what the Spirit of God says, your heart shall be prepared, and your mind will be changed until you will flow in the supernatural as naturally as a bird flies through the air. And you'll flow in the super natural as naturally as a fish will swim in the water. And you'll flow in the supernatural as naturally as you breathe the

very air. You'll not be conscious of your faith. You'll not be conscious of what's going on around you. But rather, you'll be conscious of the flow of the Spirit God. And He will manifest Himself. And He will accomplish that which He desires. For you see, these are the last days, and this is the end time. And what is done must be done quickly. And it will be done. And the hearts of many will be cause to rejoice. So rejoice. Rejoice. Be glad and praise the Lord and prepare your hearts. And let Him prepare you for that which He has prepared for you. And so walk in it. You shall walk in it. And you shall run. And you shall fly, literally, spiritually speaking. And you shall enjoy the fullness of that which is provided for you.

EQUIP

a word for 2017

Ephesians 4:12 (NASB) for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; (BBE) For the training of the saints as servants in the church, for the building up of the body of Christ: (NLT) Their responsibility is to equip God's people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.

equip does not mean __________

to furnish or provide with whatever is needed for use or for any undertaking; fit out, as a ship or army;

If we only ___________ the body then we produce ____________.

Luke 18:10-14 (NASB) "Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. "The Pharisee stood and was praying this to himself: 'God, I thank You that I am not like other people: swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 'I fast twice a week; I pay tithes of all that I get.'"But the tax collector, standing some distance away, was even unwilling to lift up his eyes to heaven, but was beating his breast, saying, 'God, be merciful to me, the sinner!' "I tell you, this man went to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted." 1 Corinthians 8:1 (NASB) Now concerning things sacrificed to idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge makes arrogant, but love edifies.


ANCHOR FAITH CHURCH

Philippians 3:5-9, 17, (NKJV) circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the law, a Pharisee; concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith‌ Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern.

Philippians 2:19-22 (NLT) If the Lord Jesus is willing, I hope to send Timothy to you soon for a visit. Then he can cheer me up by telling me how you are getting along. I have no one else like Timothy, who genuinely cares about your welfare. All the

1 Corinthians 11:1 (NASB) Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ.

imitation is the ______________

we know someone is __________ when they can maintain the _____________

others care only for themselves and not for what matters to Jesus Christ. But you know how Timothy has proved himself. Like a son with his father, he has served with me in preaching the Good News.
