Matthew reports that Jesus “went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every infirmity among the people” (Matthew 4:23). He sent his followers out in his Name to do the same thing. We believe that all healing ultimately comes from God and we believe the church is commissioned and empowered to pray for God’s healing upon his people.
