Mission Statement

ROB CARTLEDGE MINISTRIES.COM ...was Founded in May 2009 in Adelaide, Australia, with our first publication: God’s Heart Cry for Revival. Rob Cartledge Ministries exists to see the Kingdom of God grow and expand on the earth. We encourage Christians in effective prayer with an emphasis on repentance and walking in holiness. We firmly believe that we, the people of God, can move Him to such a degree that we can see the fulfilment of Joel 2:28, a worldwide revival of Jesus Christ. We emphasise the importance and absolute necessity of being truly baptised and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Our aim is to motivate and encourage Christians to read and study Scripture as well as a range of apologetics for the defence of the Gospel. We believe in ‘Taking up Your Cross’ for Jesus, so as to see souls saved in His name, preaching “Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.” (Matthew 4:17) We do not shy away from unpleasant Scripture regarding our Lord’s doctrines on hell and God’s wrath and we go to great lengths to expose the deeds of darkness that are prevalent in our world today.


MINISTERING TO THE LORD

Ministering Prayer and Intercession before the Lord “My eyes will be on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with Me; he whose walk is blameless will minister to Me.” (Psalm 101:6) “My House will be called a House of Prayer for all Nations.” (Mark 11:17) Prayer is the most important and potent ministry there is, yet it is the most neglected in the Church. It is the least glorified of all ministries, yet without it nothing would happen that is of any value to the Kingdom of God. When this ministry is taken seriously, and put into the right perspective and place of importance in the Church, it is the most exciting ministry of all. We can see Heaven moved, the Church renewed, the Spirit poured out, and revival sweeping our country in a way never before seen, causing millions of souls to be saved. So in reality, the ministry of prayer is the most potentially powerful ministry of all. This ministry has been set up to counter this attitude of prayerlessness in the Church and simultaneously see a revival of Jesus Christ spread over the face of the earth. It was founded for the purpose of seeing God’s people repent, pray and lay hold of the presence of God. (2Chronicles 7:14)


VISION Our vision is simple, we see a united body of Christ in Australia, fully repentant, humble and holy, praying up every conceivable prayer which will move God to pour out His manifest presence over Australia and the world. We see spirit empowered Christians healing the sick, raising the dead and casting out demons, fulfilling the Lord’s Commission by discipling the nation of Australia and seeing all its inhabitants come to the Lord. 


PHILOSOPHY

This is our personal belief of how the ministry will function both in public and private and how it will be governed. 

-We are to walk in holiness and encourage others to walk in holiness, for only the holy will see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14). 

-To live a life of prayer and encourage others to do the same. -To die daily from a life of sin and encourage others to do the same. 

-To be diligent in all that we do, with a spirit of excellence. 

-To be an example of Christianity to believers and non-believers. 

-To seek the Lord before every decision and to perfect the art of waiting for and trusting in Him. 

-To be relevant and approachable to this generation and to pray for unity among the body of Christ. 

-We commit to raising up leaders in the body of Christ and helping them discover who they are in Jesus.
