Divine healing is within Christ’s work of atonement (1 Pet 2:24) and a great gift of salvation. Healing, communicated by God’s grace, gifts, laying on of hands, anointing with oil, and simple faith alone, minister healing for the whole person (emotional, mental, physical) and deliverance from oppression by the devil (Acts 10:38; Mark 16:17-18; James 5:14-16).

(15) The laying on of hands, as performed in the New Testament, is an operation of the ministry of the Holy Spirit for healing the sick, baptism of the Holy Spirit, receiving spiritual gifts, dedicating children, ordaining ministries, sending out missionaries (Acts 13:3) and blessing and anoint believers for their spiritual lives.
