must remain open to the possibility of at least partial error, “I think God may be saying this to you,” ‘Does that make any sense?’

We know in part and we prophesy in part. I Corinthians 13:8-9

D. We believe that gift of prophecy ought to be used to “confirm” what God is doing in you already. If not, put the word on the “shelf” for later reference, but don’t try to be self-fulfilling or living under what was spoken by another person. Remember New Testament believers (including you) were given the Holy Spirit and the Bible to guide them daily in all they do. E. We believe only those whose lives and gifting we know, ought to exercise the gift of prophecy in a public assembly. We would in no way seek to hinder the flow of the Spirit of God by telling you not to prophesy. However, if you are new to this assembly or are unsure that what you feel led to speak is from God, please take the word to a Pastor or Elder so that they can decide a course of action at that time.

II. Prayer For Healing

A. We believe in praying for healing of the sick, and emotionally and spiritually wounded.

Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. James 5:14

B. We believe that laying on of hands is often appropriate during prayer.

And he has seen in a vision a man named Ananias come in and lay his hands on him, so that he might regain his sight. Acts 9:12

C. We believe that concerted, pointed prayer for freedom or “deliverance” from demonic spirits is Biblical and often appropriate,
