What we believe and teach

- The laying on of hands -




The laying on of hands is an act through which hands are laid on another person in the name of Jesus Christ, so that he (the one on whom hands are laid) may be healed, or filled with the Holy Spirit, or may be ordained to serve as a bishop or as a deacon, or may be commended to the grace of the Lord for a certain work to which the Lord has called him. Both Jesus and the apostles practiced the laying on of hands. The laying on of hands must not be practiced hastily.
