In our world of advanced western medicine, complementary or alternate therapies, twelve-step groups, and self-help programs, many people have sought to maintain or improve their health in this life
Have you considered another possibility- Christian healing ministry according to the patterns found in the New Testament? If you read the Gospel according to Mark, about 32 % of this wonderful narrative up to Jesus' final week upon earth, is about healing and miracles! Jesus and his first disciples were quite successful. How did they heal the sick? Would a contemporary expression of this ministry be of interest to you? As the good news about Jesus is preached and ordinary Christians pray and minister, people have been healed physically, emotionally, and spiritually, then experience abundant life with Jesus Christ.
This book will help you learn more about Christian healing, encourage you to receive ministry, and prepare you to reach out to others.
