"Great crowds came to him bringing the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute and many others, and laid them at his feet; and he healed them." Matthew 15:30
The gospel is full of narratives of Jesus' actions of healing - physically, mentally and spiritually. Jesus instructs his disciples to 'go and preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick' (Luke 9:2). The Christian church, as the incarnation of Christ, is to follow his example.
