Christian Healthcare Ministries’ history goes back more than 2,000 years, when Jesus’ disciples—empowered by the Holy Spirit—emerged from the upper room to spread the Gospel message in the streets of Jerusalem and beyond. Thousands were added daily to the number of believers.
The first recorded deed of that group of believers was to recognize there were those among them who had a need. Immediately a plan, based on Jesus’s teachings, was implemented to provide for those needs. The plan had its foundation in what Jesus taught.
Jesus told His disciples, “The world will know you are my disciples by the way you love one another” (John 13:35).
Many believers sold their possessions, pooled their resources and provided for others so that all needs were met. Through the centuries Christians became known for the way they sacrificially gave to help others in need. When the load became a burden that was too great to bear, fellow Christians came together and provided for each other.
In healthcare we find one of the most potentially devastating expenses known to the American family. One major illness and they can be destroyed financially.
