Birthed out of Freedom In Christ Ministries, Infusion Ministries was created in 2002. My (Dave Park) friendship with Neil T. Anderson began in 1992 when I read two incredible and life changing books: Victory Over the Darkness and The Bondage Breaker. At that time, I was speaking primarily to college and high school students; thus, seeking youth resources, I contacted Freedom In Christ, which at the time was in its infancy; however, my heart sank as I heard them say, “We don’t have any resources for youth, just the two adult books.”
As a seminary professor, Neil intended his works to effect primarily the academic Christian community, but I knew in my heart that students desperately needed this powerful message of identity and freedom in their lives. I began to pray that God would raise up someone to create freedom resources for youth utilizing Neil’s materials. A few months later, I was joining Freedom in Christ. As the new Director, Neil asked, “Where are we going to start?” I knew exactly what the first step was: to create youth versions of Victory over the Darkness and The Bondage Breaker. But who would write them? I was a speaker not a writer. I had never written an actual book before – only conference workbooks and small pamphlets. Neil in his wisdom said, “Lets pray about it!”
Neil returned the next day to say, “I know who should write the books”.
“Who,” I replied….
Everything in me want to say, “no.” I knew writing was not in my future. I am dyslectic; however, the Holy Spirit was speaking to me very clearly: “Trust me”; “just say yes.” So I did! Thanks to Neil Anderson, I received contracts to write two books, but the miracles did not stop there: James Dobson of Focus on the Family got a hold of our first book, Stomping Out the Darkness, which embodied the youth version of Victory over the Darkness. That book became the topic of his daily radio show. As a result, thirty thousand copies immediately flew of the shelf. Today, more than 150,000 have sold. Furthermore, we conducted our first Stomping Out the Darkness student conference at the Focus on the Family facilities in Colorado Springs.
Since then, Neil and I have done seventeen books together. Three times, our writing was nominated for the Gold Medallion award.
In 2002, we branched off of Freedom in Christ to create Infusion Ministries, a national and international, interdenominational organization that is based in Knoxville, Tennessee. The purpose of Infusion Ministries is to awaken identity and establish freedom in the body of Christ. Our staff provides training and counseling through seminars, conferences, workshops and resources with an emphasis on equipping pastors and small group leaders to do the same.
Our desire is not to create a freedom ministry in each church rather to equip and train pastors and lay people to set captives free. We hope to develop and equip small group leaders to make authentic disciples who can walk out their true identity and freedom in Christ.
- Our Vision: Set Captives Free – To see God’s truth infused in His people so they might abide in Christ and bear fruit. John 15:5
- Our Mission: Make Authentic Disciples – To equip leaders to model authentic discipleship. Matthew 28:19-20;Ephesians 4:11-13
- Our Process: Resource the Church – To provide life changing resources through small group materials, conferences and freedom tools. Colossians 2:6-10
- Our Invitation: Partner with Us – We invite you to invest your prayers, talents, spiritual gifts and financial resources to develop the body of Christ so it can be free to fulfill the great commandment and the great commission. Matthew 6:19
Infusion Ministries’ Statement of Faith
We believe … There is one true God, eternally existing in three persons–Father, Son and Holy Spirit–each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of God’s personality.
Jesus Christ is God, the living Word, who became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. Hence, He is perfect Deity and true humanity united in one person forever.
He lived a sinless life and voluntarily atoned for the sins of mankind by dying on the cross as their substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust in Him alone.
He rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He lived and died.
He ascended bodily into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where He, the only mediator between God and man, continually makes intercession for His own.
Man was originally created in the image of God. He sinned by disobeying God; thus, he was alienated from his Creator. That historical fall brought all mankind under divine condemnation.
Man’s nature is corrupted, and in his own power, he is thus totally unable to please God. Every man is in need of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit.
The salvation of man is wholly a work of God’s free grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human works or goodness or religious ceremony. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, and thereby justifies them in His sight.
It is the privilege of all who are born again of the Spirit to be assured of their salvation from the very moment in which they trust Christ as their Savior. This assurance is not based upon any kind of human merit, but is produced by the witness of the Holy Spirit, who confirms in the believer the testimony of God in His written Word.
The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to men. He convicts and draws sinners to Christ, imparts new life to them, continually indwells them from the moment of spiritual birth, and seals them until the day of redemption. His fullness, power, and control are appropriated in the believer’s life by faith.
Every believer is called to live in the power of the indwelling Spirit so that he will not fulfill the lust of the flesh, but will bear fruit to the glory of God.
Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, His Body is composed of all men, living and dead, who have been joined to Him through saving faith.
God admonishes His people to assemble together regularly for worship, for participation in ordinances, for edification through the Scriptures and for mutual encouragement.
At physical death, the believer enters immediately into eternal, conscious fellowship with the Lord and awaits the resurrection of his body to everlasting glory and blessing.
At physical death, the unbeliever enters immediately into eternal, conscious separation from the Lord and awaits the resurrection of his body to everlasting judgment and condemnation.
Jesus Christ will come again to the earth–personally, visibly and bodily–to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
The Lord Jesus Christ commanded all believers to proclaim the gospel throughout the world and to disciple men of every nation. The fulfillment of that Great Commission requires that all worldly and personal ambitions be subordinated to a total commitment to “Him who loved us and gave Himself for us.”
