About Us

WHO WE ARE

Sozo is a gathering of people who love Jesus, who seek to develop their character and lifestyle after Him, and who learn to live daily in our gathering and in our community in such a way that others would see Jesus in us and want to know Him.

WHY THE NAME SOZO

Many people ask what Sozo means.  Sozo is the Greek word meaning “to save, to deliver, to heal.”  It appears over 100 times in the New Testament and it includes the healing of the entire person: spirit, soul and body.

  • We believe it’s through Christ we are saved (sozo) spiritually and receive eternal life.
  • We believe it’s through Christ that we can be delivered (sozo) emotionally from hurts and addictions finding freedom to experience all God has for us.
  • We believe it’s through Christ that we can pray and be healed (sozo) physically from sickness and disease.
