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.

Reviews - What do customers think about When Heaven Invades Earth?
This book was a blessing before I even read it! Jan 2, 2007
One of the ongoing prayers I've always had is for the Lord to give me more faith. I found out about Bethel Church and Pastor Bill one day when watching Christian World News a few weeks ago. I went on the web shortly after the program to find out more about Pastor Bill and his church. Its at that point that I found out about his book, "When Heaven Invades Earth." I liked what I had read from the reviews on this site so I made it a point to check out the book next time I was in Barnes and Noble.
A week or two later my wife and I were sitting in Barnes and Noble reading in the cafe. I had just finished reading a few chapters in the bible when I got up and told her that I was going to check and see if they had a copy of the book. I checked the Christian section and lo and behold, they had one copy. "Great!" I thought and brought the book back to the cafe to look through. Upon opening, I discovered that something was written on the back of the front cover:
"From: The Clancy's We love you Bono!! Thank you I hope this book blesses you!!"
I thought to myself "that was strange," and showed it to my wife. What could that mean? The only Bono that I could think of was the one from U2, but that didn't make too much sense. At that point I had a feeling. I just KNEW that the Lord wanted me to have that book. I tested that feeling and went back upstairs to the nearest customer service desk. I asked if they had any other copies of the book in stock, because the one I found there had been written in... knowing that they probably didn't have any other copies in stock. They thought it was strange that it was written in like that. They looked up the book in the computer and told me that they shouldn't even have THAT copy! The two people at the customer service desk told me that they had never seen anything like that happen before. I asked them that since the book was written in and it apparently shouldn't even be there, could I just take it home? They looked at each other and told me to go downstairs to talk to the manager.
At this point I was getting more and more excited. I got my wife and we both went downstairs to the other customer service desk where the manager and others were. Interestingly enough, the woman right in front of me was asking where she could find "The Purpose Driven Life." Incredible! I told the customer service rep that the people from the other desk told me to come look for the manager. I told her the same story. She told me that someone else probably put it on the shelf and that she had never heard of that happening before either. I then asked her as well, if this book isn't Barnes and Noble's and its been written in, can I just take it? She told me that in a situation like that, they would normally put it in the lost and found, but she'd ask her manager (who was right next to her, busy with another customer). She summarized the whole story to her manager, who briefly glanced at the book. The manager motioned in my direction and said "just give it to him." The other customer service rep shrugged and then handed the book over to me and told me that it was mine! Free!
I then made some small talk with her, wondering what the Bono reference that was written in the book could mean. I knew of only two Bono's... Sonny Bono and the Bono from U2. She then let me know that U2 had a book signing in the store about a month earlier for a book they just released! The mystery was solved. Based on hearing that, "the Clancy's" that were mentioned on the front cover must've brought "When Heaven Invades Earth" to give to Bono during the book signing. After the book signing, one of two things must've happened. A bunch of things that people brought in to give Bono were left behind and one of the people working at Barnes and Noble put the book meant for Bono on the shelf... or possibly that BONO HIMSELF put the book on the shelf!
The most amazing thing is that this book was an answer to my prayer to God to give me more faith before I even read it! It was a book on faith and how we need to have more of it, and it was by faith that I got that book from Barnes and Noble for free!
I echo everyone's positive comments about this book and would give it 10 stars if I could. It's rare that I consider a book life changing, but this is one of them! Do yourself a favor and pick this book up
Word of Faith accusations are silly and kneejerk.... Dec 17, 2006
look, i understand the concerns and have grown up in such crowds my whole life but i have listened to Johnson and read 2 of his books now. The guy is solid. People will be scared and start screaming that this is word of faith but what it is is the Word of God lived out. Jesus and the Apostles acted out the Word of God and the result was signs and wonders. This is what Bill Johnson is calling us to. He can be sloppy with his etymology (he gets confused about the roots of words at times) but if this is the worst thing that can be said about him then who cares? I love his heart and I love the fact that he is humble and teaching others to walk in the power of God. We could use more such people in the Kingdom.......
I like the book. Dec 11, 2006
It is simple and relaxing to read, I like the book.
It is a huge comfort to those who are suffering and to those around them, especially when you are looking for validation that your loved one still 'exists'. It is a great follow up to her first book with added info on her own life that makes the book more heartfelt.
Awesome Nov 19, 2006
I had never heard of Bill Johnson but after reading it i have since read the sequel and recommended to all my friends and acquaintences with "This book has changed my life" If you are not much of a reader and want some encouragement this is one book you will read and be encouraged with no question! Fantastic fantastic fantasic. I just loved it.Thankyou Bill
WOW! BILL HAS THE REVELATION! Jul 29, 2006
When I ordered this book I was interested in more of God and thought the title catchy. WOW!!!!I got so much more than I bargained for. I found a book that should be cannonized as scripture! If you are looking for MORE and MORE and a class one step off of the Word of Faith than this book is for you for it is the RHEMA of FAITH! Bill has found the portal to the greater life that we have only dreamed of! Come along for a faith filled wild ride with God! AND the best part is there is MORE!!!!!! And ANYONE can have it who is IN HIM! This book is MEAT for all of us who have EXITED from the RELIGIOUS arena and also gone beyond the Word OF Faith! If you are faint hearted this is not for you! If you are not hungry for God this is not for you!!
