Southern Fire

is a New Zealand based Christian ministry. The Southern Fire team believes in the power of God to save, heal, restore and touch lives just as He did as described in the book of Acts in the Holy Bible.  Southern Fire  began ministering around New Zealand in 2016, making use of a big marquee and local venues. There have been salvations, healings, deliverances and life transformations both at and after the meetings.
