Johnson was born in Minnesota in 1951 and became a Christian as a young child. Soon after, Johnson read seven books on prayer, which significantly affected his perspective and subsequent ministry.

Johnson's father, Melvin Earl Johnson (1929-2004) was the senior pastor at Bethel Church in Redding from 1968-1982 and subsequently became Executive Officer of the Northern California/Nevada District Council of the Assemblies of God. Earl Johnson had four children, all of whom are in full-time ministry.

Bill Johnson and his wife have three children: Eric, Brian and Leah.

Bill Johnson (August-31-2021) Watch Message: Jesus is Perfect Theology

Bill Johnson and Bethel Associate Pastor and Dean of BSSM Dann Farrelly discuss Bill's belief that Jesus Christ is Perfect Theology.

Jesus Christ is perfect theology. What does that mean?

Jesus is the perfect manifestation and representation of the Father God because Jesus is God eternal. When Jesus came to this earth through the virgin birth, He never stopped being God. Jesus did not set it aside. He was God in the flesh who illustrated the Father. Jesus was 100% God and 100% man, meaning Jesus was fully God and fully man.

Jesus Christ set an example for all Christians by becoming a man that we all can follow. We invite you to watch this full video to hear Bill Johnson and Dann Farrelly discuss in-depth what it means when we say Jesus Christ is perfect theology.
