Christ-Centered: Jesus is the healer; therefore we recognize that God is actively healing His creation and we seek to participate in that healing. We acknowledge the power of healing and reconciliation that Jesus Christ is bringing to us. We also seek to embody His example of compassion, love and sensitivity to those in need.
Scripture-based: The Bible is God’s inspired Word and the ultimate authority.
Spirit-filled: We recognize the essential role of the Holy Spirit in our healing mission. Each person is gifted by the Holy Spirit and we seek to utilize those gifts in the healing center to advance the Kingdom of God. We seek to invite and welcome the Holy Spirit into our work and into the physical space of the healing center. I Cor 12:4-6 (NIV) 4There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men.
Discerning: We seek the will of God in everything, with Holy Scripture as the final authority. We look to spiritual advisors to maintain discernment in the ministry and maintain its health.
Hebrews 5:14 and 14: 8-9 (NIV)
5:14 – But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish (or discern) good from evil.
14:8 – Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. 9Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings….
Creative: Like Jesus, who used many approaches to healing throughout His ministry, we too will remain open to the leading and creativity of the Holy Spirit.
Standard of Excellence: We perform the work we are given to do with excellence, integrity and honesty that befits an ambassador of Christ.
Healthy: We promote the health of our prayer volunteers and staff, in addition to those who seek prayer.
United: The healing center is an inter-denominational collaboration of workers that recognize God the Father, the Holy Spirit and the Lordship of Christ.
