Do You Have Lift Off?

Picture a NASA rocket lifting off, only seconds later to be millions of miles from earth. The force that makes such a feat possible is mind boggling. And it’s only a shadow of the power you have access to every day! It’s the awe-inspiring power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead, and it’s yours simply because God promises it. John Avant takes a breathtaking look at Philippians 3:10–14, your key to living every moment in the same strength Jesus had as He stepped out of the tomb. The path to authentic power is not easy, but it can be experienced even through the darkest times of raw pain. Discover how to live in God’s authentic power as you move toward an incredible future!

Open the Floodgates

Are you dry? Stuck in a routine? Looking for a boost in a measly cup of java?

That’s living small. And it’s not for you. You were meant to live larger than life. To let God’s uncontainable power transform every ounce of who you are.

Why? Because when Jesus Christ stepped out of the tomb, He gave you rights to the same power that conquers even death. You can’t see or touch it, earn it or achieve it. But you can live it today.

How? Discover John Avant’s warm storytelling style as he unveils the secret to claiming Christ’s incredible power in your life. It’s too consuming, too accessible, too real to ever leave you the same.

“John Avant’s Authentic Power reminds us that the greatest energy crisis in America is the result of the underutilized human soul, originally designed to run on high-octane, Holy Spirit–inspired power. Authentic Power teaches us to not just cope but triumph over life’s challenges.”

Story Behind the Book

“After visiting persecuted churches in Vietnam , Belarus , and the Middle East , I was inspired. I saw something I just do not see today in the average American church—something so strong that the best descriptor is that it’s supernatural. It’s the power that comes from Christ. But I’m amazed that the greatest authentic power I see is wielded by those with the least power in the eyes of this world. Shortly after nearly being killed in the Middle East , I read Philippians 3:10–14 and discovered the words that unveil the secrets of real power. These are the words this book is based upon.”

—John Avant

I love this man he is great he is also my pastor Last weekend he baptized me on the first and it made it more special to belong to a church like this. They make you feel right at home. As a student i can say ive never walked in a church and had people walk up to me and say and i quote " you dont get to be the odd one and stand in the corner we wont let you" if that doesnt make you feel good i dont know what will. The students are sweet as can be. The services are as strong as i have ever seen it. He isnt scared to talk about anything, he will talk about anything from porn to sex to spankings. But he doesnt just sit there and talk about it he will will relate it to a story in the bible. I got a letter in the mail the other day from him and i could tell that it wasnt something his assisstent wrote up for him it was so nice to know that he takes the time to contact the new people that go to the church. Now im not going to say what the note said because that is a relationship between me and my pastor. But he is the best pastor i have ever herd and had <3 [= and i love him and the church it doesnt take much for me to love somebody but for an adult it does. Ive been going since august and i knew we were going to join i just didnt know when. I a sixteen years old just started following Christ and i am trying my best to change who i am as a person and the way i think about God and the Bible. This is what pastor john has told me through some of his messages: first it gets a lot better, look for peace and evil comes with it meaning that saten will try to get in the way of your peace you find peace in Jesus. This man is by far the best preacher i have had. And i as only a yojng adult LOVE him. Im not the kind of person to fall asleep church but when i listen to him there is no way i would want to fall asleep. HE IS JUST AMAZING
