Healing Ministry Team

What is Healing ministry? 

First century Christians lived the answer to this question.
In daily life, lay people pray with each other for healing because they took
seriously Christ’s commission to heal the sick.  They believed in a God whose love has the power to heal physical, emotional and spiritual wounds. 

 The prayers of early Christians showed that they understood what Jesus meant when he said “I have come in order that you might have life–life in all its fullness” (John 10:10)
 
Today, healing ministry is experiencing a rebirth.  Christians are realizing that Christ’s commission to heal the sick was meant for all of us, but we need spiritual maturity and competence to engage in effective pastoral care.
 
Our Program at St. Paul’s  is a 4 to 6 week course.  It is praying, reading and learning the scriptures of healing.  Coming together in a group that is safe and can share our feelings on how we do Healing Ministry.
 
As we do this work, it feels like we are doing what we are called to do; we are called to do God’s work.
