Welcome to The Awakening.

Let me start by saying we are not here to start another fad or church. We are not going to try to manipulate emotions or focus on how big we can get. It is not about the lights and the show. It’s all about Jesus.

The Lord has commissioned us to equip a generation to be the revival. It’s time to stop striving and start being. It’s time for the Church to arise. It’s time for revival.

The Awakening
3000 World Reach Dr.
Indian Land, SC 29707
Service Time: Friday 7:00pm

The Awakening is:

- a place for the hungry
- a place of training, equipping and challenge
- a place of freedom and healing
- a place of worship
- a place of mobilization
- a place of war
- a place of prayer and intersession
- a place of radical Christianity

The Awakening is not a church, as most people would think of when they think of church. It is a movement. It is about the King and His Kingdom. It is about releasing His Kingdom on earth, as it is in Heaven.

It is not for the faint of heart or the average Christian, but for the hungry and those seeking more. It pulls on destiny and calls forth the sleeping giant.

There is an Awakening coming upon the earth like we have never experienced before… a movement of God’s people that will shake the earth before the great and terrible day of the Lord.

God spoke to me and said, “I am raising up a generation that I will use to show the world that I am their God and they are My people.”We are facing uncertain times here in America and around the world. Now is the time for the Church to arise!

What the world needs and what the Church needs is a great awakening.

I have been traveling the nations of the world through Ben Cerullo Ministries, preaching the Gospel for the last few years. The Lord has sent me to over 27nations demonstrating His power and empowering the Church. God has put a mandate on my life to build Him an army.

The Awakening movement is an outreach of Inspiration Ministries. My heart and desire is to empower you, as a believer in Jesus Christ, to walk in the destiny that He has planned for you—to move you from the seats to the streets, and from the sidelines to the frontlines.

This world is not our home, it’s our assignment. It’s time to mobilize and take our cities for Jesus.

I encourage you to come out and experience The Awakening for yourself. It cannot be explained… only experienced.

  • We believe the Bible is the infallible word of God given by inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It is God’s Word revealed to man.
  • We believe that there is only one God, creator of the heavens and earth. He is all-knowing, all-powerful, perfect in every way and full of holiness, love and truth.
  • We believe that the trinity consists of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. They are co-existent, co-equal and co-eternal.
  • We believe Jesus was supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit and born to the Virgin Mary. He is the Son of God and came to redeem man by offering His blood as atonement, making it available to all who show faith in Him.
  • We believe man was created in the image and likeness of God. Through Adam and Eve’s sin, mankind has fallen from God and received a sinful nature. Man is incapable of returning to God apart from the salvation of Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit and that it is available to all who believe in Jesus Christ and ask for it.


  • We believe salvation is the gift from God through grace and faith in Jesus Christ. There is no other name except Jesus by which man can be saved. By repenting and believing in Jesus, man is born again into eternal life by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit: faith, healing, prophecy, the word of knowledge, the word of wisdom, the working of miracles, discernment of spirits, the ability to speak tongues and the interpretation of tongues. These are available through the Holy Spirit and are for the church today.
  • We believe the church is the body of Christ, and its purpose is to take the Gospel to all men and women and make disciples of them.
  • We believe in the visible, personal return of Jesus Christ for the body of Christ. The dead in Christ will rise, and those who are alive in Christ will return with Him to the presence of God for eternity.

I have heard it said that the spirit of expectancy is the breeding ground for miracles.

Expectations are important when coming before the Lord. God wants us to place an expectation upon His Word. God desires for us to believe that He will do what He said He will do for us, in us, and through us.

As a first-time visitor or a member of The Awakening Movement you can, and should, expect to:

  • Encounter God’s tangible presence every week
  • Experience God’s tremendous love for you
  • Witness and be a part of physical and emotional healing
  • Leave changed and empowered
  • Be a part of a personal and corporate ministry
  • Hear the prophetic voice of the Lord
  • Share in sound Biblical teaching and the uncompromised Word from the Lord
  • Encounter a demonstration of His mighty power
  • Witness God’s presence and fulfill His Word

Passionate and powerful worship will be an integral part of our services.

You will find true followers and disciples of Jesus at The Awakening. You can find a place to connect with others who are passionate about changing the world and living out their faith, together.

At The Awakening, you will be challenged and equipped to do the work of the ministry.

You will discover your destiny and hear a fresh Word from the Lord.

Plain and simple, expect your life to change forever!

Looking forward to seeing you here.

Ben Cerullo has been named by Charisma Magazine as one of the “30 Emerging Voices” who will lead the church in the next decade. His ministry carries a powerful anointing and prophetic message. Traveling extensively, both domestically and internationally, he has spoken in more than 27 nations. God continues to use him to reach people with the Gospel, confirming His Word with signs following.

Ben has a rich spiritual heritage. His grandfather, Morris Cerullo, has a worldwide ministry and continues to preach the Gospel as he has for more than 50 years. Ben’s father, David Cerullo, is chairman and CEO of Inspiration Ministries (which reaches more than a billion potential people daily through its worldwide television networks, video-on-demand, online streaming, and other media outreaches).

Ben grew up in San Diego, California with a passion for action sports. Although he sensed God’s call on his life as a young boy, during his teen years he rebelled and ran from this call. This rebellion led him into drug and alcohol problems that eventually became so serious that he was hospitalized. But this hospital experience proved to be life-changing and sparked his return to the Lord.

Ben renewed his commitment to the Lord, and followed God’s call into full-time ministry. Initially, his primary burdens were the many young people who, like himself, struggled to find their own identity and often felt ignored by the traditional church. In 2000, he started Steelroots, one of the first ministries to blend action sports and Christian music to reach youth.

Under Ben’s leadership, Steelroots sponsored live events and produced groundbreaking television programs that brought an unconventional approach to modern day evangelism. It also crossed cultural and even generational boundaries, and reached a broad international television audience.

In 2007, Ben felt the call of God to move in a new direction: To reach the nations of the world. Ben obeyed and stepped away from Steelroots. As doors began opening, he felt a particular passion to reach people who often had been overlooked, holding meetings in places such as Sierra Leone, Honduras, Peru, Haiti, Sri Lanka, India, Brazil, Columbia, England, Russia, Ukraine, Venezuela, Taipei, Taiwan and Mexico.

In recent year, Ben has become more highly visible within Inspiration Ministries, appearing on numerous programs and events. He is developing a new weekly television program, of which he will be the host. Ben continues to travel and preach the Gospel, and when at home, he enjoys spending his time with his wife and children.
