Healing-School Charter and Introduction

What is healing-school? It is an electronic community or kinship of people who believe that the Lord still heals to day and who would like to learn to become more effective in praying for the sick. It provides a safe (non-threatening) place to learn to pray for the sick and see them healed. It provides systematic teaching, as well as being a place to build each other up and to encourage each other as we step out in faith to pray for the sick. It also provides a place to ask questions and to share experiences and even to share words of knowledge, prophecies and insights about healing with the group.

It is NOT a place for theologians to discuss/debate theology or to argue whether or not God still heals the sick today. It is not a place for self promotion or building up of one's own ego, selling of one's products (books, teaching tapes, etc). It is not a place to put down others or to speak against churches or ministries. It is not a place to define theology or new doctrines. The Bible is assumed authoritative as the word of God and any teaching, doctirue or propheecy that does not line up with the Bible is assumed to be in error, period.

There is a leadership-core of Christians who are fairly mature and experienced in moving in the healing "anointing." The are in full time minsitry, and have each seen the Lord perform many supernatural healings as they minister. They will be giving input, guidance and support to the group and helping us to learn to grow effectively in praying for the sick. They will also help steer us away from off-topic tangents.

The leadership core includes:


  1. It must be biblical. Any prophecy or teaching (pertaining to healing or otherwise) that contradicts the Bible is assumed to be in error... period. The Bible remains our absolute authority.
  2. No discussion will be permitted in this conference which questions the basics of the Christian faith... they are assumed fundamental and agreed on by all participants. These fundamentals include: God exists as an intelligent and self-aware Being (as opposed to an impersonal force). God created mankind to be in fellowship with Him, but man sinned and this separated us from that fellowship with Him. Jesus Christ is God incarnate, Who became human lived among us and taught us and then died for our sins (because the penalty of sin is death and someone had to pay it). Jesus Christ then rose from the dead, forever conquering sin and death. He ascended into heaven and will return again to the earth to reign forever. In the mean time, Jesus Christ sent the Holy Spirit to indwell believers and to transform us into the image of Christ. The same indwelling Holy Spirit also imparts spiritual gifts into those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord. This includes the gifts of physical healing, as per 1 Cor 12:9, which is still active in the Church today.
  3. This list is NOT a place to post "please pray for me for healing" or "please pray for my friend for healing" type of requests. This list is a place for those learning to pray effectively for healing, it is not a place to request ministry or intercession for those who need a physical healing. In fact, please do not submit any prayer requests to the healing-school email list.
  4. Posts must be on topic. There is a wide range of on-topic for learning to pray effectivly for healing. You may ask how-to questions, you may ask theological questions that pertain to healing, you may share experiences. This is NOT a channel to discuss or debate or theologize biblical prophecy. It is a how-to, learning and practice group for those who have begun to pray for the sick, expecting God to heal through them using the prayers and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
  5. Participants must be polite and respectful and loving at all times. It is OK to disagree with someone and to express that disagreement, but it must be done in love and in a polite and civilized manner. No flaming or personal attacks are allowed. In fact, no attacks on any Christian leader or organization or denomination or move-of-God are allowed, period.
  6. If you can't find a way to say it in love and in a gentle manner, then perhaps it should not be said. Openly hostile posts will not be permitted.
  7. This list builds community and is a place to support and encourage each other and to build each other up on our gifting. However, this list is not a support group for emotional or mental problems, and is not a place to dump problems that are unrelated to praying for physical healing.
  8. Realize that from time to time, someone will make a mistake or share ideas that are in error. Remember that this is a learning forum and that making mistakes is part of the natural learning process. Therefore, we give each other -- and ourselves -- the grace to make mistakes and to learn from them. We will not disqualify someone else (or ourselves) if they make an occasional mistake, providing they act in love and that they behave in accordance with the healing-school charter. However, we encourage the list-members to have a teachable spirit and to receive feedback and maybe even gentle correction with humility. Remember that the character of a believer is every bit as important as the giftings that they move in.
  9. If someone posts something that you disagree with or find unbiblical, do not post a hasty rebuttal in anger. Instead spend some time to pray about it and ask the Lord to show you an appropriate and loving way to phrase your reply.
