The purpose of this study is to investigate the New Testament phenomenon of charismatic gifts of healings (charismata iamatōn, 1 Cor. 12:9,28,30) and the attitudes of the Christian clergy of Tulsa, Oklahoma, toward the place of those gifts in their ministries in 1970. It is generally conceded that a ministry of healing is part of the mission of the church as a redeemed community called to extend the lordship of Jesus. In this study an attempt is made to define some of the constitutive elemtns of the New Testament phenomenon of charismata iamatōn and to determine the ways in which the ministers of the churches of Tulsa see these elements as present or not present in their ministries.
