The Body Life (visitation) program is an organized ministry
designed to help all members of the Airport Freeway church of Christ know that they are loved.
It is intended to be a ministry patterned after that of Paul
and Barnabas in Acts where they planned on visiting all the brothers just to check on them:
- Some time later Paul said to Barnabas, “Let us go back and
visit the brothers in all the towns where we preached the word. This ministry will also extend to those who are sick.
All members of the Body should realize that they can count on the support and prayers of fellow Christians. With God’s help,
these loving prayers will heal those that are downtrodden: of the Lord and see how they are doing.” Acts 15:36
- Is any one of you sick? He should call the
elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in
the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make
the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has
sinned, he will be forgiven. James 5:14-15
