There is a guidance system I have lived by as an author of secular books which I find can be aptly applied to my Christian ministry as well:
- If one person misunderstands my work, I file the information in the back of my mind for later.
- If two people misunderstand the same thing, I take a look at it to see if there is something I can fix.
- If three people have trouble understanding something, it is a problem that must be fixed.
In the last month we have had two people misunderstand the purpose of the Courts of Heaven - Worldwide and am taking action before I receive another. Some people have looked at this group as a “Church” and found that it is lacking. I agree wholeheartedly - I was shocked when people began to refer to what I was doing as “Lynn Hardy Ministries.” I accepted this title believing that the CoH group would supplement what churches were doing and minister to one specific need: it would help the Church (world-wide body of believers) in one clearly defined area.
The sole purpose of the CoH group and the appointments is to it teach the Body of Christ how to operate in the Courts so they remove interference from the enemy and so that God can move into their lives in greater fullness. Each CoH appointment is clearly defined showing what will be done.
At first, I thought people would find a church near them to fulfill their other needs as Christians which would prepare them for the Courts, however, I found many were not getting a basic foundation of support for spiritual growth from their current church. For this reason many Christians couldn’t receive and grow into this deeper, fuller relationship with our Father. The Lord instructed me to create Agape Christian Fellowship to meet these basic needs of the Body of Christ, ministering to the entire body, not just the portion needed for the Courts of Heaven.
The word Agape, pronounced ah-gah-pay, is the greek word that means the unconditional, God type of love. The first century church met for evening dinners call “agapaes feasts” where they would fellowship together. The Courts of Heaven - Worldwide is now a part of Agape CF: a “class” for Christians who want to grow in the things of God. This is only part of the program the Lord has asked me to implement based around the “Believers Boot Camp” series of books designed to help Christians grow to full maturity so that they can visit with the Lord in face to face and receive personal visions.
Have you been searching for a ministry to help you heal from hurts and abuses of the past? Each person experiences different levels and kinds of afflictions; I certainly have some of my own, however it is the Lord who heals these as we press into Him, bringing these things to Him and letting go of them. The scripture is clear that we are to let go of all things in the past, being reborn through Christ and our old self is to fall away. Jesus is the one to help heal these things, not man.
It is a ministry’s job to help you grow spiritually so that you can connect with Him where this healing can take place. This is why we created “Ministering to Your Spirit.” and “Morning Prayer.” These are part of Agape Christian Fellowship, designed to help strengthen your spirit so you can put the past to rest and in the Lord’s hands.
When the Lord helped Mary Magdalen, did he ask her about her past and what had driven her to prostitution? Did He walk her through all the past abuses? No. He simply took care of the immediate need and let her know the past was forgiven. We do not need to know the fullness of your past to encourage you to embrace what the Lord has for you. Let me give you a testimony from a man about this:
Before I began the CoH group, I was helping people with dream interpretations. One man, let’s call him Zander, had many sexually explicit, vulgar dreams that were tormenting him with physical manifestations. He sent me several of these dreams asking for help. He had contacted every deliverance ministry looking for help, but each one ignored the explicit dreams and experiences he sent them. The Holy Spirit likewise, didn’t allow me to provide him with the answer.
Having exhausted himself in searching for help, Zander finally gave up on any man having his answer. He cried out to the Lord for help and pressed into prayer, the Word of God, and worship, calling desperately unto the Lord for an answer. This is when he received his first breakthrough - a strengthening in his spirit. Dealing with charges revealed in the Courts of Heaven provided the final piece.
Zander told me of this after his experiences in the Courts, letting me know that I did the right thing by not letting him bring all his experiences to me for help. This forced him to look to the Lord instead of man.
This is why we do not try to “counsel” those who come to us for help. Jesus provided us with our own personal “Counselor,” who is our “Comforter” as well. We are here to help you connect with Him: the Holy Spirit. Our new meetings are designed to bolster your spirit so the Holy Spirit can take over: Ministering to Your Spirit, and Morning Prayers.

We hope you will embrace the fullness of the new ministry God is creating by joining us for Morning Prayers, Ministering to Your Spirit, and Agape Tea & Coffee. In order for fellowship to occur, it takes two. We are here and we hope you will join our branch of God’s family by becoming part of our team. There is so much to do, so much to learn, so many people who need help…. we look forward to this season of growth and development which we hope you will be part of.
For now we only have our facebook page, but a website is being built and will be at Agape-CF.org

Believers' Boot Camp series
Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
- Knowing what weapons are available
- Learning how to use those weapons
- Receiving orders and following them
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father.
The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.
