Who is Rev. Ike?
Rev. Frederick Eikerenkoetter, better known to millions as REV. IKE, "The Success and Prosperity Preacher," has been Minister, Teacher, Motivator, Evangelist, Counselor, and Pastor to millions of people, for over 40 years. Rev. Ike dared to go where most theologians, Bible teachers, and preachers would not. As an evangelist, on TV, radio, and at mass meetings, he had the "nerve" to PREACH "Prosperity NOW!" — long before it became popular to do so. He was dismissed by some "mainstream" and "fundamentalist" people, but now many famous preachers, teachers and authors sound just like Rev. Ike — teaching prosperity!
Rev. Ike's Science of Living Ministry began with only a handful of faithful supporters. He taught these people how to get turned on to life. He showed them how to BE, to DO, and to HAVE all the good that they desire through the Presence and Power of God, Infinite Good, within everyone. Since then, Rev. Ike has become a Spiritual advisor to millions of people of all races and religions — and even to those with NO religion. He teaches that the Presence of God-in-you is your Unlimited Resource of Good.
Rev. Ike attracts people from all walks of life: ordinary people, the rich, the poor, the famous, movie stars, political figures, sports champions — even priests and rabbis! These people have received Good Health, Healing, Joy, Love, Success, Prosperity, Good Fortune, and More Money through applying his teachings in their lives.
Rev. Ike transistioned in June, 2009, however his spirit and his teachings are alive and well on the internet. To watch his dynamic, life-changing videos on YouTube, click here.
Rev. Ike Speaks on:
"I greatly value the Bible and interpret it psychologically, rather than theologically, to teach the individual positive self-awareness. One of my favorite passages is, "As a man thinks so is he." (Proverbs 23:07) I consider the Bible to be the greatest book of spiritual psychology ever written. Using my practical Mind Science techniques, I teach the individual to build an ideal self-image of how he or she would like his/her life and circumstances to be...by visualizing these images in the mind, and applying certain principles, an individual can actually bring these things into being. As the saying goes, 'If your mind can conceive it, then you can achieve it.'"
"My philosophy may be described as self-image psychology. The ultimate goal is to teach the individual to be master of his/her own mind and affairs by changing his/her own self-image and attitude. Through positive self-awareness, the individual can change the conditions and circumstances in his or her own life. I teach the individual that they can BE what they want to be, DO what they want to do, and HAVE what they want to have, through the Presence and Power of God, which is in each person."
The Intent of My Teachings:
"The intent of my teachings is to deal head-on with people's problems, fears, superstitions, and negative thinking - and to help them become aware that the "GOD-IN-YOU" is greater, and gives the Power to overcome. The intent is to motivate people into the kind of positive thinking and faith in action, which produce Good Health, Healing, Joy, Love, Success, Prosperity, Good Fortune, and More Money. Over the years, I have seen many people turn their minds, thinking, and faith around, and have miraculous results! This is our intent and joy!"
The People Who Follow My Teachings:
"I'm not trying to gather followers unto myself. It has never been my purpose to herd the masses into the folds of organized religion. My purpose is to bring the individual to an awareness of his own in-dwelling Divinity and to believe in the God within. When a person learns to think of him/herself positively and correctly, then he/she can become independent. I'm trying to get people of all races and religions to believe in themselves so correctly and so positively, that they can be independent spiritually, mentally, and economically."
