by Andrea Adams

According to the Joyce Meyer Ministries, both Joyce Meyer and her organization, Joyce Meyer Ministries, are nondenominational Christian. In an interview with "The 700 Club," Joyce Meyer identified with Pentecostalism, a movement within Christianity that emphasizes a literal interpretation of the Bible and direct experience with God. However, she also emphasized a broader perspective. The ordained minister, speaker and writer explained, "If you're desperate enough for a move of God in your life, you won't care if you get a Pentecostal blessing, a Baptist blessing, a Methodist blessing."
