"Prosperity preaching" is a popular name for the preaching of the Word of Faith movement that contends God wants believers to be rich and enjoy good physical health. The Word of Faith movement is an American religious subculture made up of denominationally independent churches, ministries, Bible training colleges, mass media broadcast networks, and entertainment production facilities. These entities are bound together by an informal relational network based on a shared theology.

There is more to Word of Faith theology than simply its teachings about money and health. Word of Faith preachers teach about topics such as relationships, the Holy Spirit, personal holiness, love of God and neighbor, and faith. However, though Word of Faith preachers preach on many different topics, all of the teachings emphasize the responsibilities and benefits of Christianity for individuals instead of for communities. Conversion to Christianity is taught to be the antidote for all societal ills. The Bible is believed to be the inerrant Word of God. The power of the Holy Spirit for individual empowerment is revered.

This one-session study traces the history of this movement and helps participants understand the central beliefs of the prosperity gospel.

Debra J. Mumford is Assistant Professor of Homiletics at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.
