The Inner Healing Room is East Gate’s inner healing ministry. It is our desire to see people set free from that which separates them from the love of God. We believe the most painful memories and experiences can be redeemed through the power of the blood and the name of Jesus. It is an honor for us to partner with Truth to bring revelation and light into the darkest areas of the soul. Freedom from offense, addiction, emotion abuse, physical abuse, trauma, and pain of the past is costly, but worth the healing process. Our hope is that you will encounter the love of the Father so tangibly; you’ll forever be changed. For more information and to schedule an appointment please contact us.
The Prophecy Room is East Gate’s prophetic ministry. The Word of God says this regarding the gift of prophecy, “But [on the other hand] the one who prophesies speaks to people for edification [to promote their spiritual growth] and [speaks words of] encouragement [to uphold and advise them concerning the matters of God] and [speaks words of] consolation [to compassionately comfort them].” (1 Corinthians 14:3) That is our heart, to edify, exhort and comfort the body of Christ with a word from the Lord. Our Prophecy Room is available by appointment between the hours of 10am and 2pm the first Saturday of every month. To schedule an appointment please contact us.
