If there was ever a time for a miracle, it would be at next week's Healing from Heaven conference at the Shellharbour Baptist Church.

The conference, which will run from Thursday to Sunday, is open to believers and non-faithful alike.

Shellharbour City Baptist Church Pastor Lloyd Ollerenshaw said it was time people took a stand against evil.

"We need to shine some light and reveal the truth about God," he said.

The pastor said people just needed to have a bit of faith in God and they would see a transformation in their lives.

"You have to believe God is good and he rewards people," he said.

"Although, there's a tragedy when we say to people who didn't get healed that they didn't have faith or believe - that's judgmental.

"I work with people who haven't got healed and they still love God, it's not conditional."

A small miracle was delivered to Baptist faithful Margaret McCaughey when she encountered a healer last year.

The 58-year-old from Oak Flats said her leg, which had been numb since a brain hemorrhage 17 years ago, had been healed.

"I can walk unassisted now up and down stairs and gutters," she said.

"It's still a bit numb, but better than what it was."

She said a worship leader received a message from Jesus to touch her arm and her leg would be healed.

"I could feel my leg was feeling a bit different," she said.

For Heloisa Nuske, from Cordeaux Heights, an improvement in eyesight was the miracle she found after last year's conference.

The 41-year-old said she had 30 per cent vision in her right eye and 70 per cent in her left.

But when she attended a healing conference, she noticed a brightness in colours around her.

A few months ago, she took her glasses off to clean them and realised she could read the lyrics to a worship song without her lenses - she was elated.

"It was a desire in my heart and in that moment I knew that he cared about the smallest things," she said.

International guest and healing minister Chris Gore will feature at this year's conference, designed to inspire people and churches to perform more miracles.
