Remembering Paul Cain
“I’m so pleased to be with you! Well, when you get to my age you are pleased to be anywhere!” Paul Cain 1929-2019
On 12 February 2019, our precious friend brother Paul Cain went to be with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Born on June 16, 1929, Paul Cain died peacefully aged 89 and was reunited with his beloved mother Anner Mildred Cain and his father, William Henry Cain.
He was known internationally for his remarkable healing and prophetic ministry extending over 72 years and lived his life resolutely for and to the glory of God.
He was widely appreciated for his generous friendliness and kindness and was regarded as “a friend of friends.” This could also be seen and reflected by his friendships which also included presidents and world leaders.
Throughout his life enthusiastic audiences would listen attentively as he told stories of his miraculous and supernatural birth and ministry, including his role in the history of the healing revival and his many friends along the lesser worn path that he trod. Of particular interest was his mother’s remarkable testimony of healing.

His sparkling wit and humour and love for God and the Church inspired many. Paul’s ongoing, recurring vision of Stadiums full of people being miraculously healed and turning to Jesus, and the conviction of an unprecedented move of God in revival coming to the nations is visual treasure he passes on.
Mike Bickle worked with Paul for a while and knew him well – in this ‘one-off’ video (Feb 28 2019)Mike shares his stories of Paul Cain.
A new day …
Covid-19 has carved a new chapter in the lives of many, but following in Paul’s considerable size 11 footsteps, we are convinced that God is doing something wonderful both in and with the Church in these days. We are living in a time of tremendous opportunity, and it is thrilling to hear so many Churches are growing and experiencing a radical outpouring of God’s Spirit in these days – despite social distancing! From China through to Iran, Dubai, Korea and across Europe and America.
God is building His Church and the gates of hell are not prevailing against it!
The prophetic ministry brings such considerable encouragement, especially in the face of adversity.
Over the upcoming days it is intended to share some of the remarkable stories of our friendship with Paul including some of the insights into what made him happy, sad and what often made him laugh. We also intend sharing some of the remarkable “Paul Cain” stories to inspire you to go after God yourself, knowing there is a God in Heaven who loves us dearly and communicates His encouragements to us.
Walk in the power of the Spirit

God is graciously inviting us, as He always has been, to walk in the power of His Spirit and in the purity of the righteousness of Christ that has been imputed to us; and to advance stealthily with an increased sense of unity as we work together as Churches on a mission.
As you diligently look at God’s magnificent Church today spread across every continent, it is wonderfully clear that the prophetic gift is emerging or being carefully restored in the Church. Prophecy is an essential biblical means for God to speak to his people and in enthusiastic response, we are wise to weigh every revelation or prophetic message against the full counsel of God’s eternal Word.

This site is not intended to be a monument to Paul, but just a reminder that what God has done before He surely can do again – and more! In talking with Paul we were both of the conviction that there was not a ‘mantle’ to be gained (Paul insisted that he hadn’t finished with his, never mind give it away!)- we all have our tasks (ministry) that God has apportioned us and as we busy ourselves with them we hear the admonition of the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 14:1; “Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy.”
I hope these few tokens of Paul Cain’s ministry inspire and encourage you to step out with confidence in God in the uncertain days ahead – Jon
