Freedom is the birthright of every follower of Jesus Christ

Too many followers of Jesus are forgiven but not yet free. Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31b-32). We want to help you know the truth and live the truth so that you can experience the freedom that Jesus purchased for and promises to you.

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (John 8:36)

What is Freedom?

Freedom is living and experiencing the abundant life that Jesus came to give us (John 10:10). It begins by believing in Jesus and receiving His free gift of salvation (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 1:13-14). We are then adopted into God’s family as sons and daughters, which is our primary identity, and we are sealed with the Holy Spirit, who lives within us (Romans 8:15-17; Ephesians 1:4-5; 13-14). Jesus came to give us freedom from our sins, our bondage, our blindness, and our oppression (Luke 4:18-19), and the Holy Spirit leads us into more and more freedom as we surrender to Him and allow Him to make us more like Jesus. Freedom is a journey, and freedom is the birthright of every follower of Christ!

Who needs Freedom?

Everyone needs freedom, including followers of Jesus! While our salvation and the forgiveness of our sins, provided by the finished work of Jesus, is the most important part of our freedom, many followers of Jesus continue to feel stuck in sin, destructive habits, shame, guilt, and emotional wounds. Christians not only experience turmoil and discouragement, but they also experience the lies and accusations from the enemy, who only wants to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). Jesus came to give us freedom in every area of our lives so that we don’t have to remain stuck anymore.

We help believers experience deeper intimacy with God through discovering their God-given identity, healing wounds, and overcoming the enemy.
Teaching biblical identity through classes and events, equipping believers with tools to walk in freedom, and coaching Spirit-led prayer for inner healing and spiritual healing.
Coaches are trained and apprenticed through by the Freedom Ministry Leadership Team. They must experience personal freedom, participate in ongoing training, and sit under a trained leader. This is not a quick process! We take time to ensure that every Prayer Team Coach is equipped and experienced before ever leading a prayer session.
A Prayer Team Leader and a small group of 2-3 other vetted people (present for prayerful support) will participate with a person seeking inner healing or spiritual freedom. Led by the Prayer Team Leader, the group asks Jesus what He wants to say or do during the session, and the group listens for the Holy Spirit to lead. They provide support and encouragement as they follow His lead.

A prayer session is usually two hours long.

Steps towards Freedom

Experience Freedom

Experience Freedom is an event put on by the Pine Hills Freedom Ministry that offers a workshop-style environment to equip you with the tools you need to live a free and transformed life in Jesus.


If you feel that you need the help of a professional counselor, we have a list of local options that we recommend.

Build Groups

Doing life with other followers of Jesus is an important part of our journey with Him. We would love to help you get plugged into a community of people that is Jesus-centered, Bible-driven, and Spirit-led.

Freedom Prayer

Before signing up for a prayer session, we ask for everyone to complete a few foundational steps first:

  • Watch the videos, provided by Gateway Church, which give an overview of freedom
  • Attend an Experience Freedom event (recommended but not required)

Once you’ve prepared, schedule a Prayer Session with the Freedom Ministry Team. Someone will follow up with you about next steps.
