“The deeper life is a life that is itself healed first by the cross, and then it flows out to heal others.”
From the 1950s through the 1990s, Hong Kong-based pastor Rev Philip Teng was a renowned international preacher, a “pastor of pastors,” who was deeply passionate about Christ and cultivating the deeper life that can be had in Christ. This he described as “a life that is itself healed first by the cross, and then it flows out to heal others.” To this end, Rev Teng embarked on a lifelong journey to encourage, equip, and mobilize the Asian Church to step out of its historical position as “the mission field” and become active participants in fulfilling the Great Commission.
