More About Bill Johnson
I am a fifth generation pastor on my dad’s side of the family, fourth on my mom’s. My three children are now the sixth generation of pastors. I grew up in a very good Christian home and had a fear of God, and while I never lived in out-and-out rebellion, neither was I a passionate follower of Jesus. The thought of becoming a pastor never once entered my head.
In 1968 at the end of my high school years I moved from the LA area to Redding, California where my parents became the pastors of Bethel Church, and in 1970 the Holy Spirit began to move powerfully in our church community.
It was around this time that Mario Murillo would come and visit our church and speak about being absolutely abandoned to Christ. One Saturday night, alone, I finally said yes to God – the absolute yes. For me everything changed that night.
I was invited to pastor Mountain Chapel in Weaverville, California, in 1978 and I accepted only on the basis that this assignment was from the Lord, that I would be sent out from Bethel Church in Redding, and that I would still be able to come under the supervision of my dad who continued to pastor the church in Redding.
We served in Weaverville for 17 wonderful years.
During this time the presence of God was so strong on us as a church family that we extended our times of worshiping and glorifying God but in those first years we saw few miracles despite praying for many.
My greatest breakthrough in ministry came after attending two conferences in 1987 put on by John Wimber. I realized I needed to “put a demand” on what I believed – my risk factor had to line up with the boldness of my beliefs. As I did this there was an immediate change in my ministry and we began to see healing and miracles increase.
We moved back to Bethel Church in Redding in 1996 after the leadership there unanimously supported my one condition : I was born for revival and would pursue revival – this was not negotiable.
The outpouring when we started to minister at Bethel began almost immediately, although in seed form, yet grew rapidly and we began to see many healings including multiple cases of cancer healed.
Healings and miracles have become normal today and I rejoice in this.
Many visit Redding weekly, hoping that God will touch them. I am happy to report that many leave well and whole. But many others leave in the same condition in which they came. I refuse to blame God for this, as though He has a purpose in their disease. While Jesus did not heal everyone alive in His time, He did heal everyone who came to Him. His is the only standard worth following.

Great Book Oct 16, 2008
This book took me over 3 months to read. Bill Johnosn hits spiritual truths so good it melts my face off, in the best way possible. I highly recommend this book.
This is what its all about! Oct 16, 2008
Why is it that most of the best selling Christian books have to do with a self absorbed, self serving Walk? Thats why I love this book, its all about knowing Him and encountering Him and truly having Gods heart and taking to people that are hurting and need Jesus. Its one this thing to say "I'm crucified with Christ" with my mouth when I dont really die to the old man but put him in a freezer and keep him on reserve in case I need him. This book deals with the truest form of total abandonment to self and not some watered down version of discipleship but the real truth that it costs everything but in return we get Jesus! I recommend this read to all who are looking for the "real deal" and want to see God face to face.
A Whole New Level Sep 29, 2008
If you think you have intimacy with the Holy Spirit, guess what? There's a whole new level. And that's a good thing, in case you were wondering. A walk with Christ does not get seem to get boring with the intimacy of the Holy Spirit.
