Healing Word Church

Healing Word Church is an Interdenominational Church which is founded and under the direct leadership of Lay Me Down Ministries. HWC is located in various countries around the world including: The United States of America, Brazil, Kenya, Pakistan, Uganda, and MORE! Healing Word Church mentors, ordains, and employs nearly 200 full-time ministers. We offer our unique ministry covering for Churches in almost every country.

He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction.”

 – Psalm 107:20 esv

When you first read this scripture and then see the name of our Church, many might think the focus of our Church is physical healing and miracles. However that is not our focus. Yes, we believe in physical healing. Yes we believe in miracles, signs, and wonders. However, the focus of “Healing Word Church” is something more pure; SALVATION through Jesus Christ.

The focus of every Church service, Church event, and message preached at a “Healing Word Church” is the Gospel of Jesus the Christ. The Gospel has many levels and many aspects. However the main focus is always the salvation message.

What exactly is HWC?

“He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction.” – Psalm 107:20 esv

When you first read this scripture and then see the name of our Church, many might think the focus of our Church is physical healing and miracles. However that is not our focus. Yes, we believe in physical healing. Yes we believe in miracles, signs, and wonders. However, the focus of “Healing Word Church” is something more pure; SALVATION through Jesus Christ.

At “Healing Word Church” we believe that Jesus the Christ was and is the living word of God and that He was sent to us to heal not only our physical illnesses but our spiritual separation between our creator and ourselves. He and He alone delivered us from our destruction.

The focus of every Church service, Church event, and message preached at a “Healing Word Church” needs to be the Gospel of Jesus the Christ. The Gospel has many levels and many aspects. However the main focus needs to be the salvation message.

Preach the Gospel of Jesus the Christ. Without the Gospel of Jesus the Christ nothing else is important. We can have miracles, signs, and wonders happening everyday but if people are not repenting of sins and focusing on their Creator, then we are just wasting our time.

Secondly, “Healing Word Church” has a strong global focus. We have Churches around the globe and we desire to remain deeply connected with the Churches we have and always add more into our ministry. Each congregation needs to have this focus and remember they are part of something much larger than what they can see.

Our Church services are done much different than what many might be accustomed too. It is important to adapt our principles to your cultural without losing our message. Each congregation reserves the right to adapt and change some things in their personal congregation. However, here is a list of some things we cannot allow inside our Churches.

NOT ALLOWED
*Pastors will NOT receive a special seat in the congregation during, before, or after services. (James 2:3). Instead they should humble themselves, assist people to their chairs, and then take the last seat available if any seat is available. (Luke 14:8)
*Various “special” Church Groups. Some congregations put a special focus on their “special groups” as if this were some type of school for Children and a popularity contest. They wear their special uniforms, sing at special times during the Church, etc. That will not be permitted. Groups are important and will be permitted. However they will not receive special treatment, be giving special opportunities during the Church services, etc. At “Healing Word Church” we are a family and no member is treated more special than the others.
*Pastors, Ministers, and Church members CAN wear special clothes but it CANNOT be required of them.

SAMPLE CHURCH TEMPLATE (can be adapted and altered)
*Welcoming Message/Greeting (done by the senior pastor)
*Invitation Prayer (Pray to God to be welcome in the place)
*Worship (Can be a band, or individual. However the main focus needs to be worshiping God. NO having various groups and many starting and stopping. This time is a time of worship and focusing on our God not displaying musical groups to entertain the congregation.)
*Gratitude Prayer (That God for His presence)
*Church announcements (Use this time to inform the Church of important news)
*SHORT Message about Tithes and Offerings
*Tithes and Offerings (can have a musical group or individual sing a song or two)
*Main Message (Use this time to focus on the Gospel of Jesus)
*Invitation Call (Nothing for drama or entertainment but a summary of the message and help people respond to the Gospel)
*Gratitude Worship (Use this time to enter into the presence of God again after hearing His message)
*Final Prayer and closing statements

Normally this template requires two hours of time. We suggest 1 hour of preaching the Gospel, 40 minutes of music/worship, and an average 15 minutes of worth of the other mentioned items. Obviously this template can be adapted to fit each culture. However remember the things that are not allowed.

Church membership is an important aspect of “Healing Word Church”. However, it is important to always remember that is it NOT necessary for salvation. We encourage each believer that wants to call “Healing Word Church” their home to become an active member of “Healing Word Church”. To become an active member here are something’s to consider.
