Pastor Jackie and Kenneth Hartman
What We Believe
“For the Word of God is alive, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
~Pastor Jackie & Ken
~There is one God manifested in three persons: The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
~The fall of man and his lost estate which makes necessary a rebirth through confession and belief in the Lord Jesus Christ.
~The reconciliation of man to God by the substitutionary death and shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ
~The reality of satan and his present control over the unregenerate man does exist.
~The resurrection of believers in everlasting life and blessing in heaven, and the resurrection of unbelievers into everlasting punishment in the torments of hell.
~When the rapture occurs, the head in Christ will rise first, and those who are alive and remain will be caught up to meet Jesus in the air.
~Water baptism in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
~The indwelling of and baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
~Tithes and offering should be freely given to your local church.
~Divine healing is the restoration of health to those that have been supernaturally healed by the Holy Spirit.
To help each person find and fulfill God’s destiny for their lives, that they may know their inheritance and authority in Christ. (Eph. 1:3-4, 16-23; 2:6,10)
His Peace is Wonderful, His Healing is Awesome, His Anointing is so Fulfilling, & His Presence & Power left me in Awe.
Gifts were given out from Heaven tonight and I received healing for my once debilitating migraine headaches.
Plus, one of the highlights for me tonight happened to be I was COMPLETELY delivered from a demon that I’ve had harassing me since I was 8…. This particular spirit has had it’s hand in causing me low self esteem, depression/bipolar disorder, suicide attempts & thoughts, and an eating disorder. (All of which I am now completely healed from!) YIPPIE!
I’ve also received a dose of release & anointing of talent for the piano. (I’m extremely excited for that because I have had this as a desire in my heart for a very long time.)
I tell ya I love the Lord with all my Heart and I’ve been truly praying for you all to experience the full Glory of God and all that comes with it. I hope you begin to seek it out and then experience it.
“I thank God for the teaching my family and I have received in the last 11 years or so. We have learned how to take control of our lives, using the principles in the Word of God. Once you find out that Jesus won it ALL and we have all that we need to live victorious, then your life will be forever changed.”
“1952 I became very ill. I went to a doctor, and he said, “I had gall bladder problems.” I was put on bed rest for six weeks. I had to have a lady come in to help with my three children. The doctor went on vacation so I was put under another doctor’s care. I wasn’t getting any better and this doctor found that I was pregnant. It wasn’t a normal pregnancy, and that I was carrying a dead baby. I heard of a special tent revival in Omaha at Brother Fox; so I had my husband take me there to be prayed for. Bro Fox and another man laid their hands on me and said, “In the name of Jesus you will have this baby!” On January 4th of 1953, I had a beautiful baby girl. Then about 8 days later; I went to the bathroom at 2 am; I passed out and was hemorrhaging. The last thing I remember was the ambulance taking me to the hospital, I was out for 2 days. Dr. Hill went to the room and said to my husband, “I can’t do anymore because she’s in God’s hands, she’s dying.’” My doctor had my husband go home and prepare my children that they weren’t going to have a mother anymore. My two oldest remember that. Meanwhile my dear mother and her pastor stayed in the sun room at the hospital praying for me. The Lord answered their prayers. The doctor came into my room pointed at his gray head and said, “You gave me this gray hair.” This baby girl is 56 years old as of to-day.”
“In 1955 my family was invited to meet a couple that has come to Fremont to start a church. Since we had stopped going to church, we started going to theirs. The Church was a little old store building; you could see daylight through the cracks in the walls. They asked me if I would teach a class, so I did. Our Class was held in a little old bus on Clarkson St., while another class was up stairs in their apartment, and another in the “church.” One day an elderly Lutheran man was walking by the church and the Lord had him to go in and give that Pastor $5000 dollar. So we started to build the Bethel Assembly of God on 12th and Hancock. When it was all done, we were planning a dedication service. I did a lot of baking since there were several in my family. The pastor’s wife asked me to bake dinner rolls for 150 people. One of my friends who lived next door came over and said, I just heard the weather man and there is a storm that is coming tomorrow. So we reminded the Lord of what he did for Joshua, how He stayed the sun so he could win the battle. It was after midnight when I realized I wasn’t going to have enough flour, I started talking to my Father reminding Him of how he multiplied the widow woman’s barrel of meal and asked Him to multiply my flour. It was 2 A.M. before I finished and I had just witnessed a miracle, I had shook out 10 pounds of flour out of a 5 pound bag of flour. We don’t understand it, but the storm is stayed.” Another miracle had happened.”
“P.S. The Lutheran gentleman got born again and he was there every day to help build the church.”
“I don’t like to be late for church, so every Saturday night I would get all five of my children bathed and than put their clothes on chairs. Next morning, breakfast was all ready to go. Their father was another story, he would take his time, “beyond reason”. Then when we would get to church, he would turn and sneer saying, “Well it’s time for the Andersens to come; they’re a half hour late”. I took it so long and then I had an idea. So next Saturday came, I got all my little ones together and said, “We’ll all get ready and when your daddy starts in again, I’m going to point to the door and every one of you go out. Not one word.” Go get in the old car and we left and were early. Their daddy didn’t show up. I wondered what on earth happened, our driveway wasn’t finished. When we got home he was still there and he told me, “When you left I thought I would go to one of two other churches just to hurt you. I got in the car, started it, but it wouldn’t move. I was stuck in the ground like it was mud. I got a narrow cement block and down it went, another and down it went, there were three blocks all total. The Lord wouldn’t let me go anywhere and He had a meeting with me. He said if people don’t believe it, I’ll show them the three cement blocks, they’re still there down in the dry ground.”
“In my early Christian life I started picking up children for Sunday school. That’s how I won my first Bible. We then moved back to Fremont when my husband got a job at Hormels. We had a car with an extra seat and I would load the children up. Then there was a problem, the brakes on the car were iron on iron. A man who worked with my husband at Hormel also worked on cars so he was going to put on new brake reliners. We got a call from him saying, “You don’t need the brake reliners, there are new ones on there with the serial numbers”. This was also my first tithing days, so my husband witnessed “a miracle.”
“This one happened at my dad’s house. I was using his stove, it was junky. One of my granddaughters, Tammy, who was nine years old, was standing in the doorway watching me. The oven exploded and started the upper part of me on fire. Tammy was screaming, “Grandma! You’re on fire!” Then just like that: it was out. The only thing that caught fire was some singed hair on my forehead. One day when Tammy was in her teens, she was speaking doubt and unbelief. I happened to be in the room and I heard this. I said, “Tammy, do you remember that day at great grandpas when his stove exploded and I caught on fire?” Jesus is real and He performs miracles. Tammy remembers how He put the fire out and somehow kept grandma from being burned. It was a miracle.”
In about 1958, my first husband, I, and our five children drove to Iowa to visit his mother and step father on their farm. It was a habit of mine that wherever we went, I’d find a church to take my children to. My husband wasn’t always happy about this. So the next morning I had the children all ready to go but their father wouldn’t let me have the keys. So I turned to his step father and asked if I could use his car. Marimus, his step father, gave me his keys and off we went. We would be late, arriving for Sunday school but they wouldn’t get in on the most part of it. The church was in Atlantic, Iowa where we used to live in 1949. It was 18 miles from the farm. It had rained the night before and there was only one main gravel road, the long way around, but they have paved and black top ones now. As I was going I saw another road that looked good, if I took it, I could cut off some miles. But lo and behold when I got on it, it wasn’t what it looked like. It reminds me of the roads in our life, where we get off, and wished we would have stayed on the main one. I realized I had a problem, but if I stayed in the middle and barreled it, I could make it. All was going well, I was over the first hill and right at the bottom the car decided to turn sideways and there we sat across the road. With the cars at that time I could get out of some pretty rough spots. But when I got out and checked things out, I thought; only a tractor will get me out of this one. The back wheels were all the way down in the mud. I got in and sat down to figure out what I was going to do. “Pray. Yes, I’ll pray.” Meanwhile I started the car and to my surprise we started moving, only the car wouldn’t obey me. I wanted to keep on going but the steering wheel turned to go back over the hill we just came over. It was like someone had a hold of the steering wheel turning it out of my control. So I thought, “Okay, back we go to the main road”. It was a steep hill and we moved very slowly. I thought as we neared the top, we aren’t going to make it. “Pray kids. Help mama pray,” And bless their little hearts, they sure did pray, then all of a sudden here we were at the top, “Praise the Lord!,” and onto the main road, “18 miles to go”. We’re really going to be late now, but I was determined to go to church late or not. To my surprise, when we got there no one was there but the man who took care of the church. I checked the time, same as mine. This is really crazy, it just didn’t make sense at all. Over the years, many, many times I tried to figure it out only to get a headache, so I put it out of my mind. Then about 13 years ago I heard a pastor’s wife give a similar story. They had to go to a special conference and were way late but when they got there they weren’t late but early. She said we were transported in the spirit. The Lord showed me the same thing happened to us that day and He let me know others will have the same thing happen, “It’s a miracle!”
Healed of Stomach Cancer
“It happened in 1957, I had been hurting for quite some time only I didn’t say anything to my husband because he heard his older sister always complaining. She always had some incurable thing wrong so after that, he didn’t want to listen to complaints. I was believing the Lord for healing. It was stomach cancer, it went on for about a year. One day he had to go to a night meeting. When he got back he said, the Lord told him what was wrong with me. The next morning as I was getting the three older children ready for school, he said to me, “How do you feel?” I said, “I feel okay”. Then he said to me, the Lord told me last night you had stomach cancer and if I would lay my hands on you he’d heal you. My hands flew to my stomach and I danced all around the kitchen praising the Lord. Fifty-three years and I’m still healed. Another miracle. “
This was in 1955, I was going blind. When I told my husband, he wouldn’t believe me. He took me to my eye doctor Spangler and got the shock of his life. My doctor told my husband it was true, he said, “Doctor, can’t you operate?” Dr. Spangler said there is no medical help that can help your wife. I heard of a young Evangelist, Clifford Erickson, who was coming to Omaha to some auditorium. We went because I heard he had a special healing ministry. One afternoon after we were ministered to, so that night we were to go up for healing. As he did it, it was like someone pulled that white sheet from off my eyes and I could see perfectly. I went back to Dr. Spangler and he was shocked
“My oldest grandson, who was 4 years old, and his mother, my oldest daughter were coming for the weekend. It was a trying time whenever he was around, he was an uncontrollable child. My husband had just gotten 12 baby chicks and he worked nights at Hormel. The next morning I woke up and Rodney wasn’t in bed. I got downstairs as fast as I could and there he was with the 12 little chicks. There were only two or three standing, he was swinging one around by the head and throwing it down; they were gasping and kicking their legs. “Rodney,” I said, “Your grandpa is going to be very unhappy with you.” I picked one up after another praying for them and by the time his grandpa came home all the chicks were alive.”
“I was listening to Kenneth Copeland in 1979 and I heard him say, “you need to curse cancer at the root. Command it to die.” I’d never heard anything like that before. My father in law who just gotten saved at 87 years old, was in the Merrick Manor. Dr. Block called and said his one lung was gone and the cancer was in the other one. A friend of mine and I went and cursed that cancer and commanded it to die in Jesus’ name. Just before he died, Dr. Block took another x-ray. He had a brand new lung and the cancer was no longer in the other one. The nurse called me to reporting that and said that morning he wheeled out in his chair to visit with her. She said, “I saw something I’ve never seen before”. All around dads chair was blue glow. He then wheeled into his room and left this earth.”
“About 1957, we moved from Fremont into a house 14 miles from Fremont. There was a couple that came to church from West Point, so I invited them to come have dinner with us. As we were on our way to the farm house, I was thinking, “I wish those potatoes were done”, because most of the dinner was ready. As I opened the door to the kitchen, the stove was on and the potatoes were done, “just right”. Who turned them on? It had to be an Angel. Then when dinner was over I went to wash dishes when a storm came up. The lightening had hit the windmill and followed the pipes into the house and sink where I had my hands in water. I felt the electric shock in my hands and up my arms. Roy, the lady’s husband, was yelling, “You’re on fire! You’re on fire!” I froze looking straight out the window in front of me and then just like that it was over and no harm. Roy had witnessed a miracle. Right after his wife, AnnaBelle, went to make jelly and somehow or another she spilled the paraffin (wax) for the top of the jars down her leg and ended up in the hospital in West Point. Roy came from a church that didn’t believe much of anything, but he witnessed the Power of God that Sunday, so he told us later he was believing God for a miracle The night before they were to take the bandages off, Roy said, “God woke me up in the middle of the night and said, when the doctor takes the bandages off there will be no scars” so when Roy was with AnnaBell, the scars, Roy saw another miracle. Doctor and nurses came in and removes the bandages and they were shocked! There were absolutely “no scars and toy saw another miracle.”
Big Apple Pie
“It was in the late 50’s. I was allowed $20.00 for groceries, so I had a large garden and I raised chickens to help out. One day I really had a desire for an apple pie. I didn’t have but a few and thought it will at least cover the bottom of the dish. So I put the apples in the sink and cut them in quarters. Then I began to peel them and cut them up. There always seemed to be one more, then one more. Before I knew it I had “a great big apple” pie. Praise the Lord! I had another miracle.”
“About ten years ago when ORU was fixing badly needed repairs and the carpeting was a disaster, I said to myself, “If I had $100.00 I would send it to help out”. Guess what, the next morning I found a $100.00 bill in my billfold. The thoughts came rushing in, “You could take care of this and that”. I knew it was the enemy so I got ready fast and mailed it. Do I believe in miracles and the supernatural? You bet I do!”
“I went to call on a family from church one afternoon and they were in a huddle discussing what to do about a six week puppy that their son fell on and broke it’s back. I stood there for a little while as this was going on; then they all looked at me and said, “What would you do?” Thoughts flew through my mind; how many times chickens, turkeys, and our dogs were healed by the Lord. One day grandma, her flock of chickens were all sick. She said “Lord, if you healed the Andersen’s, chickens, turkeys and dog, you can heal my flock of chickens” and He did. I said, “I’d pray for it”. I stooped down, lifted and cradled the puppy in my arms, put him down and went home. That puppy lived to be an old dog.”
The Same Spirit that Raised Christ Jesus from the Dead
“Last day of March 1985, I got a call from my oldest grandson, Rodney. “Grandma, I can’t wake mom up”. I said, “Call some men from her church and we’ll be right there”. When we got to Omaha the rescue squad had taken her to the hospital. When we got there in the ICU, the doctor said, “Your daughter is dying, she won’t make it through the night.” All of a sudden I felt like a giant, gift of faith. I said, “Doctor, I serve a mighty big God! My daughter is going to live and not die!” The doctor said, well I better go home so I can get up in the morning and go to church. The third day was April 2nd, my birthday. We were playing the chorus from Romans 8:11, 24 hours a day, Romans 8:11. If the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, then the same Spirit that raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also quicken your mortal, short lived bodies by His Spirit who dwells in you. All the family was watching for the slightest movement of her toes. My son and his friend saw a little. My youngest daughter said, crying, “Mom everybody sees something but me”. All of a sudden I heard the Spirit say to me, “Tell her to go tell Connie Jean today is mom’s birthday”. She did and Connie Jean woke up and said, “It’s today? I thought it was yesterday!” When I stayed to take her through therapy one nurse almost passed out when we walked through the door. There were two nurses who were born again because of this.”
“When I was in San Diego in 1981, I ministered to this friend, Rena, from Brother Hagin’s book on “Authority of the Believer.” Every Christian needs to know who they are in Christ. Rena’s youngest daughter was pregnant. They detected one heart beat, but at birth there were two babies, one behind the other. The Dr. told Rena, the baby that was in the back lungs weren’t developed and she wasn’t going to make it. Rena told them, “I’m having a baby shower for both babies. She will live”. She spoke and acted on faith. The next day the nurses called and said, “We don’t understand, the baby’s lungs grew over night”. Those twins are now 29 years old.”
“My friend, Shawn had a couple mishaps on ice with the van from her work, so she just quit driving. She had to have an ID card and I said it’s almost as much as a drivers license, so I talked her into driving again. I would always go with her to make it legal. She had the keys as we went to Wal-Mart one day and the keys got lost. They were nowhere to be found. I had an emergency set so we went home. The next day as I got into my purse, there they were, this has been happening time and again. We were in Eureka Springs when I left mine in a motel there. Six months later, I went to get a light jacket out of my closet and I felt something heavy. I reached in the pocket and there were my keys. It was October and since it was cold I had my winter coat, not my jacket. One message from the Lord was there is going to be more Angelic activity than ever before. We’re seeing it.”
Hebrews 1:14 is Working
“My son Tony called me one day and said, “Mom did you have Brother Hagin’s healing CD on my table?” I said, “no”. He said, “Mom my place is locked up yet here it is on my kitchen table. No one can get in. Guess what, Hebrews 1:14 is working!”
March of Dimes Paid $25,000
“My youngest daughter was having difficulty toward the end of her second pregnancy. They finally called a specialist in and they took the baby two months early to save my daughter’s life. Once she started delivery the baby would have drowned in blood and she would have bled to death once she started. They took Toby to Children’s Hospital. They said he wouldn’t live, but we prayed the Word and he did live. Then they got a bill for $25,000. Her husband had just got laid off the railroad. She shared this with me, crying. She said, “Mom, we’re going to owe money all our life”. I said, “Look what Jesus has done. He’s done one miracle, He will do another. He’s trustworthy, He’s reliable”. So we prayed again, God will do it again. One day the doctor told her, “I’ve been looking into this. This is a special case. He’s hooked up with all kinds of wire and tubes and that makes you eligible for the March of Dimes”. They got the second miracle, the March of Dimes paid all $25,000.”
Thankful for $5.00
This is the very first time this happened to me. At this time, $5.00 to me was more like $50.00. We were very poor. We had an eight foot wide trailer house, it wasn’t too long either. I needed some money really bad. As I opened the dresser in our bedroom a five dollar bill came floating down. Since that time I have found money quite often in my billfold $10.00 mostly, $20’s and then that one time $100.00. I’m not surprised anymore, but I am very thankful He’s my Daddy.
God Show Doctor Broken Rib
“I was at the St. Luke’s Hospital where a relative was. My daughter had called me and said, “Mom there’s a lady here with her son in the ICU waiting room. I’d like you to talk to her”. This was when the problems first started with gas and oil. Her name was Ann and her husband wanted to save money so instead of driving his pick up this morning he took his motorcycle. That morning he got hit by a pick up. She only had her son, there was no one else to encourage her, so I talked to her over the phone. So when I got to the ICU I didn’t know which one she was in because there were so many in there. Another lady I saw there that was one of my helpers in Bible School, she walked over and said, “Sister Andersen, it’s you”. I said, “Yes, it’s me”. So this let Ann know I was the one she wanted to talk to. I encouraged her in the Lord, expect the best, but then it got worse and then she didn’t want to talk to me anymore. She would turn and walk away. I felt bad and wanted to get out of there when the Spirit said, “Go over and speak to her”. So I walked over where she had to hear me, and I said, “I don’t care what it looks like, the Lord is going to show the doctor’s what’s wrong”. He was going to drown in his blood. And that’s what happened, the Lord answered my prayers and showed the doctors a broken rib had punctured his lung and that’s where the blood was all coming from. I was back at my daughter’s when I got the call, it was Ann wanting to tell me the good news. Her husband was sitting up and eating. Isn’t God good, there isn’t anything impossible with Him.”
