Our Vision:

Jesus healing the multitudes through multitudes of healers

Our Mission:

Releasing and increasing the healing presence of Jesus

Our Values:

  • Jesus is the center: Healing is a sign of the kingdom of God among us, made available to us by the power of the Holy Spirit through Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.
  • Jesus is the model: We seek to pray as Jesus prayed, inviting others into fullness of life in him.
  • Healing is a manifestation of grace: We treat each who comes for prayer with love and respect, extending the grace and compassion of Jesus to all.
  • Healing is a transformational process: The Spirit’s healing work is released both instantaneously and over time as God transforms our minds, bodies, and spirits.
  • The Church is a healing community: The Church is God’s hand extended to the world in healing. As separate ministries, we come together to support and encourage the Church in this call.
