Why we Lay Hands on People

 Laying on of Hands and Anointing with Oil. 

As described in James chapter 5, this is often practised in our Church. 

Laying on of hands is symbolic of spiritual blessings flowing form one person to another. 

Anointing with oil is symbolic of God’s Holy Spirit.

These two are often used in connection with prayer for the sick as we believe God still heals people today.
