represents the body
of Christ at His last supper (St.
Luke 22:15-20). Baptism water
is symbolic of our following Jesus in His baptism (St.
3:16,17). That is all that Saint Matthew’s Churches’
free prayer rugs
are. They are simple
symbols of dedicated holy places in a home, reminding us
to set aside

Saint Matthew's Church believes that in faith
the Apostle Paul sent forth
handkerchiefs, “and the evil spirits
went out of them [the sick]” (Acts
19:11,12). Sometimes Saint Matthew’s Church gives away free
biblical, prayer, faith handkerchiefs to represent the Apostle Paul’s
act of faith.
There was no holy, magic power in the Apostle Paul’s handkerchiefs or
aprons. Those pieces of cloth simply triggered faith in the
believers’ lives, and that is why the St Matthew's Church bishops,
from time to time, give away handles of faith to our members and people
whom Saint Matthew's Church wants to invite to our church
services. St Matthew's Church bishops give these
items of faith away free of charge to stimulate the believers’
just as we do Holy Communion wafers, representing
the body of
Christ (St. Luke 22:19).
Saint Matthew's Church also gives
oil, as the Bible
instructs us: “Is any sick among
you? Let him call for the elders of the
and let them pray over him, anointing him with
oil in the name
of the Lord: And the prayer
of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord
shall raise him up…” James 5:14,15.
There is no power or magic in holy
anointing oil. The power is in the
