WHO WE ARE
THPM is an interdenominational ministry which seeks to promote unity in the Body of Christ by offering physical, spiritual an emotional healing. Based on the scripture from Mark 2, we take our friends to Jesus. We listen, love and pray.
Pastors and priests from Tallahassee area Protestant, Anglican, and Roman Catholic backgrounds together wrote our statement of faith. We find richness in our diversity, and we are blessed by the unity of His body!
We affirm the historic Christian faith as summarized in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds. Therefore, we believe that true healing comes from the Father in the name of Jesus, the Lord, by the power of the Spirit.
We believe that the primal disobedience of the human race resulted in spiritual, relational, intellectual, emotional, physical, and societal brokenness. Scripture calls this reality “the world” and “the flesh”.
We believe that God’s healing power is available today and that one of the signs of the in-breaking of the kingdom of God into “this world” is the healing of the brokenness of our lives.
We believe that physical and emotional healing must be put in the context of the ultimate healing process of salvation by God’s grace. Temporal healing is both a foreshadowing of and a participation in the eternal healing that God will accomplish at the “revealing of the sons of God” (Romans 8:19).
We believe that healing is the work of the Holy Spirit as He restores health and wholeness in Jesus’ name, leads people into truth, opens their hearts to receive the Father’s love, and calls them to participate in the transforming of society. Healing is the fruit of the Spirit’s work, not a result of man-made techniques. We are absolutely dependent on Him.
We believe that the Bible, God’s inspired and authoritative Word, is foundational to God’s healing work in our lives. The Holy Spirit uses the Word of God to expose lies, to reveal truth and to guide His people.
We believe that, while the Sovereign Lord may heal a person directly, He most often mediates the gifts of His healing through the Body of Christ, the Church.
We believe that Christ’s Church is in a spiritual battle “against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12) and that we are most effective in that battle when we are unified under the Headship of Christ. Though our current divisions cause us deep pain, we believe that the unity of the Spirit (Ephesians 4:1) is a spiritual reality and our motivation for cooperation in ministry beyond denominational bounds.
