Publishers Description R. Loren Sandford does not believe we will see revival sweep the Western world--despite the prayers of those longing for God to send it--without certain key elements. The goal of our pursuit in these crucial days, rather than seeking power, must be intimacy with God and oneness with his heart. In addition to biblical examples and practical application, Sandford shows readers how certain "lighthouse churches" are incorporating and cultivating these goals. The church of Jesus Christ, he says, can rise up to have a prophetic impact on cities and nations and become all that our Savior called us to be.

ENDORSEMENTS Jan 21, 2009
"Loren Sandford has done it again. The Prophetic Church is heart-gripping, bold, insightful, innovative and convicting. Every prophetically gifted individual needs to read and live with the attitude and in the spiritual atmosphere described in this book. With wisdom, Loren Sandford not only defines what it takes to have a healthy prophetic community, but how prophetically gifted individuals should live in the community of the Church, and in so doing have a long and vibrant ministry." --John Paul Jackson, founder, Streams Ministries International
"Loren Sandford pleads for a deep and intimate relationship with God in a secular society caught in an out-of-control downward spiral. Loren calls us to seek first the Kingdom of God and lifts up a vision of lighthouse churches to show the way Home." --John Arnott, founding pastor, Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship
"All prophetic people should have a personal identity in Christ and a strong sense of their own destiny. A prophetic community can occur only when its leadership values the Kingdom more than service-oriented participation. Real leaders impress upon their people a philosophy for life that empowers them to rise above adversity and warfare. Loren Sandford has written a book about making the journey in the Spirit to the place where the Kingdom provides the environment for real church to emerge. It is an honest book about coming out of a sterile past into a vibrant future. Loren is building a people who can receive under pressure and prosper in the heat of battle--a community of passion that worships wholeheartedly and prays like a bride, not a widow. It takes time, faith and patience, and only people who have sought the Lord and been found by Him can do it. Most churches want to get into a high place in God. Sadly, many of them dream about the outcome but fail to understand the process that takes them there. It is the process that makes us rich. How we travel is as important as reaching our destination. This is a book for travelers, not tourists." --Graham Cooke, author, Approaching the Heart of Prophecy
"Some seventy years ago Smith Wigglesworth, the `apostle of faith,' gave a important prophecy for the Church of future generations. Essentially he prophesied that the time would come I believe that move is now emerging slowly. Loren Sandford is great example of the kind of leader we need for a move of the Spirit that, along with other distinctions, would combine a love for the written Word of God with a love for the presence and power of God. His deep appreciation for the Bible. along with his passion for the presence, power and leading of the Holy Spirit, provide us with a great example. The Prophetic Church will prove a valuable tool in helping the `both/and' church to emerge. Loren engages us with a passion for the Person of God, yet he calls us to be people who fulfill the purposes of God for this kairos (chosen) time." -- Marc Dupont, Mantle of Praise Ministries, Inc.
"This interesting, well-written, intensely practical and sometimes provocative book by Loren Sandford confronts the Church of Jesus Christ that he loves and has served faithfully for more than thirty years as a pastor and prophet to wake up to her mandate. The mandate is to be known by her love (see John 13:35). In this treatise, Loren builds an airtight prophetic case that love, not power, is the primary mark of the Spirit-filled Christian and community. This book also challenges the charismatic community to focus on love, not power, and in so doing He challenges us to move forward to take our places as the true light in the desperately reeling world community that Jesus states we are." --Fred Wright, international coordinator, Partners in Harvest, author of The World's Greatest Revivals.
