We're glad you're here. The Sozo ministry at Freedom Church is a vital part of our church and we are excited to share it with you.
Sozo is a Greek word translated: "Saved, healed, delivered."
- Saved | "If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved (sozo)," (Romans 10:9 NIV).
- Healed | "But Jesus turning and seeing her said, 'Daughter, take courage; your faith has made you well (sozo).' At once the woman was made well (sozo)," (Matthew 9:22 NASB).
- Delivered | "Those who had seen it reported to them how the man who was demon-possessed had been made well (sozo)," (Luke 8:36 NASB).
Sozo is a unique inner healing and deliverance ministry aimed at getting to the root of things hindering your personal connection with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. With a healed connection you can walk in the destiny to which you have been called. Using a range of tools, and following the Holy Spirit, wounds are healed, strongholds broken, truth revealed, and "doors" to the past are closed.
- Sozo is an inner healing/deliverance ministry.
- Sozo is not counseling, but a Spirit-led and effective way to remove deep barriers.
- Sozo finds issues quickly instead of taking a long time to examine the past.
- Sozo helps heal and build our relationship with God which enables us to fulfill our destiny.
Sozo sessions are usually 1 - 1½ hour-long appointments. Prior to coming in for an appointment you are asked to fast for one week to prepare your heart and spirit for ministry time. We also believe in the principle of sowing and reaping. You are asked to sow a suggested donation of $50 into your freedom. All donations received help expand this ministry so others may benefit from it!

"Learn the Truth About This Life-Changing Ministry"
by TAYLOR BERGLUND, Charisma Magazine
Jesus came to set the captives free, and believers have been casting out demons for thousands of years with two words backed by the power in His name: "Come out." But one revelation of modern-day deliverance ministry is driving debates in the 21st-century church. It's called Sozo—based on a Greek word used in the Bible that means "to save, heal, preserve and rescue," according to Strong's Concordance.
We first see the word sozo in Matthew's Gospel when the angel Gabriel announced to Mary that she would bear a son and call His name Jesus, and He will "save His people from their sins" (Matt. 1:21). When the Bible refers to Jesus saving people, sozo is frequently the word used.
But sozo also connotes inner and external healing. The Greek word is found in Scriptures related to God's healing power, like the woman with the issue of blood who crawled through a crowd to touch the hem of Christ's garments (Matt. 9:21-22) and the demonized man Jesus set free (Luke 8:36).
Despite the biblical backing, many Sozo practitioners are getting hate mail and accused of spreading New Age deceptions with bad theology—but they've also witnessed miraculous results in the lives of believers who were once bound by darkness.
"Sozo is a listening prayer ministry, where we are trained to facilitate an encounter with God for the purpose of healing past wounds, discovering lies or deceptions that hinder you in your faith and bringing you into the truth," says Bill Kline, Bethel Sozo's regional director for the Rocky Mountain Region. "We rely upon the Holy Spirit to lead us in every Sozo. Consequently, no two Sozos will be exactly identical or the same. Since Sozo is not a procedure, and it's not therapy and it's not counseling, we can only describe it as a framework in which we operate with the Holy Spirit."
