Product Description

We are living in a time when worship has become a distinct priority for the Christian community. For years the church has emphasized evangelism, teaching, fellowship, missions, and service while neglecting the very source of its poweróworship. Recently, however, many churches are experiencing a Spirit-led renewal in their understanding and practice of the praise and worship of God.

Encountering the Healing Power of God, a course for small-group or individual study, consists of thirteen east-to-understand sessions. Part One, Sacred Actions Ordered by the Lord, offers two sessions on each of the "sacred actions" recognized as sacraments throughout the Christian church: baptism and the Lord's Supper. Part Two, Sacred Actions Commonly Accepted by the Church, explores confirmation, reconciliation, marriage, ordination, anointing, and Christian funerary practices. Part Three, Other Sacred Actions of Worship, studies foot washing and the "solemn assembly."
