Restoring The Foundations (RTF) ministry was developed by Chester and Betsy Kylstra in the early 1990’s. As God began to show them patterns and principles to bring freedom and healing to themselves, they naturally shared their hearts with friends, and the body of Christ. As God walked Chester and Betsy through healing personally, He nudged them along the way to build a ministry to share His heart and healing touch with others. RTF is founded on the belief that God desires His people to live joyful and abundant lives.
Restoring The Foundations is a ministry for people desiring to walk closer to God and to fulfil their God-given destiny. RTF is a sanctification ministry, a healing ministry and a deliverance ministry all rolled into one. RTF appropriates all that Jesus accomplished on the Cross to make it active in a person’s life.
RTF uses an integrated approach that addresses the following four interrelated foundational areas that affect each of us.
This problem is rooted in the second commandment (Ex. 20:3-6), in which God visits “the iniquities of the fathers upon the children up to the third and fourth generations.” God requires us to confess our ancestors’ sin as well as our own (Lev. 26:40). We focus on the confession of sin (I John 1:9) and the appropriation of Christ’s finished work on the Cross to break curses (Gal. 3:13) and recover “legal ground” from the enemy (Col. 2:14).
All of us have formed ungodly beliefs from life’s circumstances, including ones we have inherited from our ancestors (i.e., our parents and grandparents). These Ungodly Beliefs need to be changed into Godly Beliefs. This can be accomplished through a procedure of repentance and renewing your mind (Rom. 12:2).
Jesus came to heal the broken-hearted (Luke 4:18). He heals the hurts of our soul and spirit as we “Wait upon the Lord” with “Listening Prayer”. He shows us what He wants to heal, and then He heals what He has shown.
After we have “co-laboured with Christ” to bring freedom and healing to the first three ministry areas in your life, the various demonic strongholds oppressing you can be disassembled and destroyed (Mark 16:17).
An RTF Issue Focussed Session can last up to 3 hours with each of the four integrated areas being prayed through. A personal questionnaire is completed prior to the session. This is a helpful set of questions to provide insight for the RTF ministers to seek God and prepare for the ministry time. As lies and wounds are exposed and dealt with, you can not only expect new freedom but you will also be equipped to carry away from the ministry process the tools you will need, not only to retain your freedom and healing, but to continue to grow and mature in your Christian walk.
