By    |   Friday, 15 May 2015 04:02 PM

Prayer, according to evangelist Francis Chan, is an indication of spiritual growth. This minister and media personality has dedicated his life to inspiring others to fulfill their potentials and understand their relationships with God.

Based in California, Chan overcame the adversities of his childhood to enter the ministry and found Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley. His drive has seen him achieve many things, including the opening of Eternity Bible College, publication of several books (including three bestsellers), and production of numerous online sermons. As a result, Chan has offered a number of profound statements about success.

7. "Honestly, when I read the Scriptures, I really believe the Lord puts a heart in us when we become believers."

8. "Jesus evidently hates it when we tear into our brothers or sisters with demeaning words, words that fail to honor the people around us as the beautiful image-bearing creatures that they are."

9. "I could be wrong about salvation. I could be wrong about a lot of things."

Chan, who ministers to thousands, recognizes the need to take care of his own spiritual needs as well. He revealed his personal reflections in an interview with Mark Galli in Christianity Today.

10. "I just want to disappear for a while. Even in my own church," he explained, "I heard the words 'Francis Chan' more than I heard the words, 'Holy Spirit.'"
