About Us

We would like to take a moment to familiarize you with the Liberty International Network fellowship.  Liberty Temple Full Gospel Church & World Outreach Ministries was founded in 1982 in Chicago, Illinois with 2 members.  Since then, it has grown into a robust network of Liberty Temple Full Gospel Churches, covenant ministries, business entities and other affiliates that have a oneness of heart, mind and spirit and whose ultimate purpose is kingdom advancement.

We are an Apostolic fellowship, which means an Apostle provides oversight to the entire network, and the people reflect an apostolic nature of unity, sacrifice, and service.  An Apostle is a sent one, a specially commissioned messenger of Jesus Christ.  According to Ephesians 4:11; an Apostle, as well as other five-fold ministry gifts, have a specific purpose of equipping and perfecting the saints.

God has mandated my wife and I to equip and galvanize a team and an army of believers, prophets and teachers that will fulfill the great commission and demonstrate the same unity, power, love and family atmosphere as the church in the book of Acts.  We are well on our way to being a witness in our homes, our communities, our cities, and the uttermost parts of the world.

If you sense the call of God on your life; if you are looking for answers; if you have a sincere desire to know God and to carry out His purpose, then you have come to the right place.  We aren’t just building great churches, we are building great people, and we endeavor to do this one sermon at a time.  On behalf of the entire Liberty International Network Family, thank you for visiting us.

OUR BELIEFS

  1. We believe in one God….The Son and the Holy Spirit. I John 5:7
  2. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived, died, buried, and resurrected. He ascended into Heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father and is true God and true Man. Mathew 1:23 and Mark 16:19
  3. We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and is our rule of faith and practice. II Timothy 3:16.
  4. We believe that all are born sinners, the Holy Spirit convict of sin. The Lord Jesus Christ paid the price for sin by the shedding of His precious blood on the cross as the atonement for sin; and those who repent of their sins and personally accept the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior receive forgiveness of sin and life everlasting. Romans 3:10, I John 1:7, and Revelation 5:9.
  5. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance; that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit are valid and operative today, and that the fruit of the Holy Spirit should be increasingly evident in a Christian’s life. Acts 2:4 and I Corinthians 12.
  6. We believe that the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ provides healing for our Spirit, Soul and Body. Isaiah 53:5 and I Peter 2:24.
  7. We believe that we should obey Jesus’ command to preach the gospel to all the world. Mathew 28:19.
  8. We believe as becoming good soldiers, there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female; for God is no respecter of persons. Galatians 3:28.
  9. We believe in and look for the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.  I Thessalonians 4:16-19
  10. We believe that the Bible is correct (Proverbs 29:18). “Where there is no Vision, the people perish”. Therefore, we earnestly consolidate our efforts in carrying out the wonderful vision that the Holy Spirit has given to Liberty Temple Full Gospel Church.

Launching his coffee house ministry in 1978, as well as pioneering husband and wife ministry teams, prophetic conferences, praise dance, and christian drama and film, Liberty Temple Full Gospel Church of Chicago soon became not only one of the fastest growing ministries of its time, but one of the most impactful in terms of shifting the culture of christendom, particularly in Chicagoland and abroad.  

After 17 years of pastoring the church he founded in 1982, Apostle Turner and his wife,  Apostle Darlyn Turner, founded The Liberty International Network.  Apostle Turner established over 42 ministries overseas and over 20 locations and bible studies state wide.  He was also a writer, producer and director.  

His television series, The Awakening, won an Emmy Award and 4 Angel Awards.

Apostle Turner’s vision was that God’s Spirit was needed in every industry and aspect of society.  

The Liberty International Network expanded to include individuals, organizations, businesses, schools, ministries and churches that desired to impact and take dominion in every aspect of society.

Apostle Turner passed away on January 16, 2018.   Apostle Turners impact and legacy  touched millions through radio, television, books, sermons, and his personal ministry, and continues to expand through both his natural and spiritual sons and daughters, and The Liberty International Network vision.
