ISDM is an outgrowth of the Apostolic Roundtable of Deliverance Ministers and was established in 2003.
From their Website:
Presently, ISDM is under the leadership and direction of Bill Sudduth founder of Righteous Acts Ministries, Inc. (RAM) in Colorado Springs, CO.
Bill’s vision for ISDM is to recognize and network deliverance ministers nationally and internationally. He also wants to restore a level of credibility to the ministry of deliverance by providing continuing education and peer level accountability for deliverance ministers. His goal is to see the ministry of deliverance and inner healing back in mainstream Christianity where it belongs.
Bill ministers deliverance and inner healing on a daily basis and has ministered to thousands of people in both individual and group settings.
According to Talk2Action, “These ministries are for the purpose of expelling and repelling demons which are claimed to cause both physical and emotional problems. Apostle Chris Hayworth heads an international network of deliverance ministries called Cleansing Streams Ministries which originated at Jack Hayford’s Church on the Way. Hayford maintains apostolic authority over that network.”
Apostle Chris Hayworth’s Cleansing Streams Ministries hosts seminars and training sessions and offers this:
Deliverance must not be looked at as a once-in-a-life-time event but as part of the ongoing sanctification process. An individual can be instantly set free from a particular bondage by the power of God. However, he or she, while in this earthly body, is meant to continue advancing in Christ-likeness.
So how does deliverance apply to Christians? The Bible says, “Do not give the devil a foothold (a place)” (Ephesians 4:27, NIV). As Christians, it is possible to give the demonic a place in our lives. When we experience the life-changing power of salvation like the Hebrew people found out, the land—our lives—is legally ours, but it needs a bit of clearing out! The Holy Spirit, through the Word of God, opens our eyes and we can embrace truth, repent and reject the lies. Armed with His truth and authority, we can remove the enemy from our land.
