Since its founding in 1949, the Oral Roberts Evangelistic Association has been sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ and taking His saving, healing, and delivering power to people everywhere. We believe God's desire is for whole-person healing—body, mind and spirit—according to God's Word in 3 John 2. We endeavor to bring hope and encouragement to the body of Christ through biblical teachings on seed-faith living, healing, and the Holy Spirit. We encourage believers to do the “greater works,” spoken of by Jesus in John 14:12, demonstrating God's love and His power and reaching out to a hurting world.
