Couldn’t we have a ministry of Christian healing without an OSL chapter (now called Healing Community) ? Yes, you can have a healing ministry with nothing more than Jesus Christ; but we have been exhorted to work as a Body. It is possible to work as a Body within a single congregation, but the purpose of OSL is to work within the Church—the whole Body of Christ—to strengthen its members and offer them a context in which to ask questions and share answers. OSL seeks to develop a healing ministry in the community by extending invitations to other church people, organizing healing missions, and conducting regular healing services, in which people can gather to seek wholeness. Workshops on prayer and healing are another way that OSL offers instruction from the Bible to members and others who are interested in the healing ministry of Jesus.
