FREEDOM – Freedom in life comes from God and through healing community. We don’t know how Jesus has and will meet you, but at CHC we work intentionally to make space for that to happen in our midst. We value it above everything else.
It was for Freedom that Jesus set us free. The story of Exodus is our story: God is passionately pursuing our freedom, delivering us from what enslaves us and leading us into life-giving covenant relationship. God covenants with us like a groom to his bride. This relationship of loving communion with God and with others is the foundation for our freedom in life.
“The free God desires the free worship of a free people.”
– Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, To Heal a Fractured World
ONENESS – We are deeply connected to God and each other. Prayer moves us deeper into the awareness of our access to God’s own heart. This changes everything. We pursue life together from this place of connection to God. He made each one of us and we share the unbreakable bond of being His children. We are not the same and uniformity is not our goal, however we truly believe that we are better together.
In John 17 we get a glimpse into the prayer life of Jesus right before He lays down His life, what does He pray for? That you and I would be one just as He and the Father are one.
“The Glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.” – John 17:22-23
JOY – Joy is our motivation. We prefer to call work “Joy” and when it feels otherwise we slow down and move toward the space where Joy is found. Led by His joy, we experience God’s goodness in our lives. We discover that while our journey with Him is personal, it’s always about more than just us. If it can help someone else, we value sharing it: this is our JOY. We aspire to be a generous organization full of open-handed people living from Joy that life with Christ brings.
We believe healing is for everyone, anytime, anywhere.
While we offer personal prayer times for anyone, we also spend time training teams and leaders to pray in sensitive yet powerful ways in their own home churches, neighborhoods or whatever unique place their journey takes them.
We are a healing resource for San Antonio. We love partnering with friends like Methodist Hospital and YMCA.
Our Goal: wholeness for the total person, growing communities of equipped healers, and cities that are better off because of our partnerships.
