Holy Spirit and Fire

About Us

We are the “Greater Phoenix Executive Chapter.”

That is a mouthful. What is an Executive Chapter? God showed us that we should be made up of men and women, business people or non-business people. God wants each person to find their place in the Kingdom of God!

Our Chapter welcomes both young and old. Our goal is to encourage each person we meet to grow in the Lord to their fullest capacity. We seek to pray for salvations, healings, deliverances, the baptism of the Holy Spirit with all the “Gifts of the Spirit” in operation. We want to bring in the most anointed guest speakers who will inspire our members and be a place you can bring friends or family to a non-church atmosphere.

Dr. James Nemeth will be our guest speaker

At 14 he was in a Rock Band and played on the Dick Clarks show. God had a different plan for his life. He was gloriously saved and filled with the Holy Spirit. James has many amazing testimonies and has seen thousands of miracles and healings happen in meetings all over the world. He is currently ministering in London, England but he has assured me he will be back for our meeting. He ministers under a full anointing and we will praying for people at our meeting.

All are welcome to attend. Our FGBMFI band will be leading in worship.

The Vision

Demos Shakarian founded FGBMFI in 1952 after being given the vision from God. He saw millions of people from all over the world who had a blank look on their faces. Then he traveled around the world again and saw these same people with happy faces, with hands raised praising the Lord. They were now in a community of love instead of isolated.

This vision spread all over the world, and FGBMFI became one of the primary vehicles which God used to start the Neo-Pentecostal, Jesus Movement, Charismatic Renewal in the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. We feel that the Holy Spirit is saying he wants FGBMFI to be raised back up so he can use us to help the Church to get ready for the soon return of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Richard Shakarian, President, and Saeed Hosseini our International Director has asked us to be a beta testing chapter to revise a model which will be more relevant and to appeal to all people. We have dedicated ourselves to using the most advanced technology available to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.

“The mandate from God is we break the chains of bondage in the world. Our mandate is to destroy the isolation of loneliness, and link the world to God!” -Founder, Demos Shakarian
