Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one of you sick? Let him call the elders of the church to pray over him and annoint him with oil in the name of The Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; The Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
Our Ministry's Main Focus, Beliefs and Practices.
First and foremost we are Christians. Period.
We serve HIM above all. The entire Bible is the Inspired Word Of God.
We follow Jesus' teachings and example in all things. In giving, in caring for others, in loving our enemies, in praying, in worship, in judging others, and relying on God for all things.
We believe we are living in the end times as foretold throughout the Scriptures. We believe all the signs are clear, and He is near at the door. We do not hold back in telling others that. But there are other wonderful ministries which have far superior gifts of prophecy than we do, so rather than overstep our area of expertise, we support those ministries which do a superior job of sounding the warnings of the coming Day Of The Lord
Some of those excellent ministries are Jack Van Impe Ministries in Troy Michigan. We encourage everyone to support them and listen to Dr Van Impe and his wife, Rexella.
Another superb ministry sounding the warning alarm is Lamb andLion Ministry, founded by Dr David Reagan. They are headquartered in Plano Texas, and again, have the true Gift of Prophecy from The Spirit. Their magazine, The Lamplighter is a terrific resource for End Times information.

Just as we believe that The Lord has given those above ministries the Gift of Prophecy, we believe we have received the Gifts of Healing. Not the charlaton, whack you in the head and knock you down kind of healing, but in real, honest healing. Healing sometimes comes in the form of physical healings, through prayer and laying on of hands. But it can also come in the form of spiritual healing, or a healing of one's troubled spirit. Through a kind word and wise counsel many people have found a sense of true healing in the innermost reaches of their souls that way. Sometimes healing comes in the form of emotional healing, where emotional scars may have taken a toll on someone, sometimes for years.
Of all the Gifts of The Spirit, it was the Gifts of Healing which were plural. We believe that our ministry was called to bring those gifts forward, and in that vein, this is the main focus of our ministry.
We ARE NOT Faith Healers!
We believe in the power of prayer in healing the sick, in mending the spirit, and comforting the grief stricken. We believe in the laying on of hands, as practiced in the 1st century church. Prayer is one of the most powerful healing agents in the universe. But we do this privately, one on one with a person, and we do not make a grand show of it, such as many of the frauds we may see on TV or in tent revivals. The ministry of healing is a serious one, sanctioned in the Holy Scriptures and should not be made into a circus sideshow. We also expect a person to go to a medical doctor and receive conventional treatments as well. WE NEVER get in the way of sound medical advice or practice, and expect everyone to follow the sound advice of their medical practitioner. The medical profession is a noble one, and a caring, qualified, competent doctor is a blessing from God. We use the power of prayer, as a Gift from the Holy Spirit IN ADDITION TO sound medical practices.
