Here is some information about our Healing Centre
Healing Rooms of Halifax Ministries would like to provide you with some information about the facility we currently use for public ministry. We have scheduled public ministry sessions on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 7:00 PM – 9:30 PM held at Church of Our Saviour, 255 Portland Street, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada.
We would also like to answer some basic questions you may have around what the Healing Rooms are all about, and why we are here in the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM).
“As for the days of our life, they contain seventy years or if due to strength, eighty years.” (Psalms 90:10)
We believe the 53rd Chapter of Isaiah holds the key to our redemption, spiritual and physical.
Isaiah 53:6 says: “. . .the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”
This verse provides for our salvation.
In Isaiah 53:4 it says, in the Hebrew, “Surely He hath borne our sicknesses, and carried our pains.”
This verse provides for healing. Matthew takes this verse from the Old Testament to the new in:
Matthew 8:17 when he says, “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bore our sicknesses.”
If we believe that God laid our iniquities on Jesus, and because He laid our iniquities on Him there is salvation for us, then we can also believe what Isaiah tells us that He also laid our sicknesses and disease on Jesus and because of that healing is for us also.
We believe the word is the seed, that when planted will produce an abundant harvest. We must first understand Godʼs word for the provision of healing before we can possess the manifestation of it. We therefore share Godʼs word on healing, before we pray, to produce prevailing faith in the hearer that becomes the substance of things hoped for and is evidenced in the manifestation of healing.
We believe there is a filling of the Holy Spirit that is available to every Christian. The Holy Spirit has an anointing that produces power and can be received and increased through a yielded life. We believe in the nine gifts of the Spirit and the importance of the fruit of the Spirit, which empowers the gifts.
Each prayer servant in this ministry must be called by God, yielded to His Holy Spirit, seek an increase in anointing, be open to operate in any gift of the Spirit that is necessary to minister life to the informed, draw daily from the Word and in prayer and continually give God the Glory for what He has done.
Each prayer servant must not only minister to the sick, but should be helping to equip others in the body to do the same.
This ministry and its servants serve the body of Christ and are submitted to its leadership. We look for this leadership to give us spiritual support, to come alongside and in our unity provide the strength and power to see the sick set free.
- The Holy Bible — We believe in the divine inspiration and inerrancy of the Holy Bible, both the Old and New Testaments.
(2 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12)
- God — We believe in one God revealed in three Persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
(Matthew 3:16, 17; John 17)
- Christ Jesus, His Divinity and Humanity — We believe that Jesus Christ of Nazareth is God who came in the flesh, born of the Virgin Mary, and that He is both fully man and fully God.
(Luke 1:26-38; John 14:1-3; Acts 2:36; Acts 3:14, 15; Philippians 2:5-11; Ephesians 1:3-15)
- Holy Spirit — We believe the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity whose purpose in the redemption is to convict of sin, regenerate, sanctify, and empower the repentant believer, guide the believer into understanding the Holy Scriptures, indwell and give gifts to the believers as He wills, that they may minister as Christ would to men. We believe that the manifestations of the Holy Spirit recorded in 1 Corinthians 12:8-11 and the importance of the fruit of the Spirit which empowers the gifts shall operate in the churches today which yield to the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe a believer can be baptized in the Holy Spirit at the moment of regeneration, or anytime subsequent to his regeneration (new birth) experience. We believe that the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is for all believers as promised by John the Baptist, was experienced by the early disciples of Christ, and is evidenced in the
lives of many present-day believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.
(Luke 11:13; John 7:37-39, 14:16,17; Matthew 3:11; Acts 1:4,5,8; Acts 10:44-47, 19:1-6; Galatians 5:22-23)
- Man — We believe that man, in his natural state, is a sinner, without hope, and without God, destined for eternal punishment in Hell.
(Matthew 25:41,45; Romans 3:19-23; Galatians 3:22; Ephesians 2:1,2,12; Revelation 20:14,15)
- Blood Atonement — We believe in the saving power of the Blood of Jesus Christ and His imputed righteousness to all who believe on Him with faith.
(Acts 4:12; Romans 4:1-9, 5:1-11; Ephesians 1:3-15)
- Bodily Resurrection — We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ and all believers.
(Luke 24:39-43; John 20:24-29)
- Ascension — We believe that Jesus Christ ascended to the Father and is presently seated at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us.
(John 14:1-6; Romans 8:34)
- Second Coming — We believe in the visible, bodily return of Jesus Christ to this earth to gather His Church (Bride) and judge the world.
(Acts 1:10, 11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10; James 5:8; Revelation 1:7)
- Salvation – We believe that the terms of salvation are repentance toward God from sin, and a personal, heartfelt faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, which results in regeneration of the person, and eternal reward in Heaven. This salvation is entirely by grace of our Lord and not of works. Works are excluded except as fruit of salvation.
(Matthew 25:34, 46; Acts 3:19,20; Romans 4:1-5, 5:1,2; Ephesians 2:8-10; Revelation 20:11-13)
- Ordinances – We believe that the two ordinances of the church are water baptism and communion (The Lordʼs Supper).
(Matthew 3:15, 16, 28:19-20; Acts 8:38; Romans 6:1-4; Luke 22:13-20)
- Consecrated Life – We believe that believers should seek, as the early disciples did, to practice a life consecrated unto Jesus Christ, separate from the world, and lived out in fellowship with local believers. We should also adopt standards of conduct that shall exalt our Lord and His church.
(Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:1-3; Galatians 6:14; Ephesians 5:11; Colossians 3:17)

- To re-establish healing as a vital ministry of the body of Christ throughout the world.
- To unite, heal, and restore the army of God to prepare for the end time harvest.
