What is Sozo?

Sozo is the Greek word translated:

  1. to save, to heal, to deliver
  2. to save a suffering one, to make well

This encompassed the whole person…spirit, soul, and body.

Sozo is Salvation
“If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you shall be saved (sozo).” Romans 10:9

Sozo is Healing
“But Jesus turning and seeing her said ‘Daughter take courage your faith has made you well (sozo) and at once the woman was made well (sozo).” Matthew 9:22

Sozo is Deliverance
“And those who had seen it reported to them how the man who was demon-possessed had been made well (sozo).” Luke 8:36

God desires to bring healing and restore us to wholeness, that all may experience His goodness and love through salvation, healing, and deliverance… SOZO.

What is Sozo Ministry?

Sozo ministry is a unique inner healing and deliverance prayer model in which the main aim is to get to the root of issues hindering your personal connection with the Father God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit.

It was birthed out of Bethel Church in Redding, California, and is a combination of select tools from various inner healing and deliverance ministries as well as revelations from years of ministry at Bethel Church.

As you encounter Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, you are brought into greater truth and are released from the impact of wounds and lies that hinder you from walking in the destiny to which you are called.

  • Sozo is simple, fast, Spirit-led, and effective
  • Sozo is done in a gentle and honoring manner
  • Sozo finds issues in minutes instead of years

Sozo at MCC is a ministry that desires to serve the community and the whole church. As ministry teams follow Holy Spirit, wounds are healed, strongholds are broken, truth is revealed, and “doors” are closed.

What is a Sozo Session?

Each time of ministry using Sozo tools is called a session. Sozo ministry is typically offered by a two person team of trained volunteers in one or more session. The team may be a mix of men and women.Sessions usually last 1.5 to 3 hours and are conducted in a friendly, confidential, and relaxed atmosphere. They often include these elements:

  • A brief interview process
  • A prayerful use of tools as well as confession and forgiveness to find and remove roots of emotional pain
  • Prayers to receive God’s truth and blessing

The effects of wounding and sin are addressed without blame or shame. The focus is on interactions with Father God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit that bring restoration to spirit, soul, and body.

Sometimes physical healing occurs when inner healing has been manifested (see John 1:1-3).

Once you have been sozoed, you can continue to use the tools on your own to maintain your freedom and increase your intimacy with God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit.
