The Bible gives 5 reasons for laying on of hands:

  • For healing
  • For receiving the Holy Spirit
  • To confer an office
  • To separate for a specific duty
  • To ordain into a ministry
  • To impart blessings

Gifts can be imparted for ministry by the laying on of hands.

When we lay hands on someone for ordination, we are conforming a call by God, not creating one.

Although we do not baptize infants, we dedicate them to God and lay hands on them to bless them.
