Restoring the Foundations
Restoring the Foundations, an integrated approach to biblical healing ministry, works on the principle that there are four key areas that can negatively effect our lives and that these are integrally intertwined: Generational Sins and Curses, Ungodly Beliefs, Life’s Hurts, and Demonic Oppression. Restoring the Foundations was put together by Chester and Betsy Kylstra over years of experience and Life Church Bath has people trained in this form of healing ministry.
Restoring The Foundations has two ministry paths to help you find the healing you desire. The first is the shorter Single Issue-Focused ministry, which we are permitted to offer to members of Life Church Bath only; and the second is an extended Thorough-Format ministry and whilst we do not offer this as a ministry of the church we can put you in contact with RtF trained ministers who deliver this ministry.
Issue-Focused Ministry Format
We may have one major issue that stands out in our lives; one that just seems to bring us trouble. We may feel shame, fear, anger, pain, or confusion. It may flare up in certain circumstances, or may be an on-going issue.
Our Issue-Focused ministry format focuses primarily on one major issue that is troubling you. Together, through prayer, we discover how the four problem areas mentioned earlier work together to ignite and inflame the issue. We will apply the foundational truths to each area as we listen to God for counsel and direction.
The ministry session takes approximately three hours and there is a suggested donation which will be discussed with you on application. These three hours can profoundly change your life as God sets you free from the root causes of an on-going burden in your life.

Sometimes we're simply overwhelmed There may be several issues, and some may seem to be related and others not. Thorough Format ministry examines the four areas of Generational Sins and Curses, Ungodly Beliefs, Life’s Hurts, and Demonic Oppression. During the 15 hours of ministry, foundational truths are applied to each area, addressing the spiritual root causes as God graciously prepares hearts and minds to receive his love. Married couples will have a joint session at the beginning and end of the ministry time and private sessions for each of the four problem areas. The ministry content is:
1. Joint initial session for married couples (3 hours)
2. Interview (3 hours)
3. Generational Sins (3 hours)
4. Ungodly Beliefs (3 hours)
5. Life's Hurts (3 hours)
6. Demonic Oppression (3 hours)
7. Joint concluding session for married couples (3 hours)
