Christian healthcare ministry that was established in 1981

Christian Healthcare Ministries (CHM) was established in 1981. CHM’s concept originated 2,000 years ago with the early church who “held all things in common” and followed the Apostles as they prioritized meeting the needs of the poor, the oppressed, and their Christian family.

Jesus told his followers that the world would know they were his disciples by the way they loved one another (John 13:35). CHM members are an extension of that testimony as they carry one another’s burdens.

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.

Healthcare expenses can be among the most devastating cost known to families. Every year, thousands of individuals face financial ruin because of a major illness or accident. That's where CHM steps in.

Christian Healthcare Ministries (CHM) accomplishes two things: We provide financial assistance for the medical needs of Christians who are ministry members, and we provide awareness of what things cost, how much they should cost, and how to make those numbers align.

In matters of health insurance, a third party pays medical bills. Therefore, people may not focus on what is being done or what it costs. In contrast, CHM members decide with their doctor what treatment they receive and agree on how much it will cost.

Since 1981, we have enabled Christians to work in harmony to help one another with their medical bills. CHM members have shared over $6 billion in each other’s healthcare costs.

The Body of Christ provides for CHM members in the same manner as the early Church helped each other. The love that Jesus commanded we show for one another is demonstrated every day at CHM.

We are eager to serve you with this simple but effective method of the Church being the hands and feet of Jesus Christ.
