In this 1964 meeting of what appears to be a group of Christian Medical professionals. Roberts talks about the power that comes through the baptism in the Holy Spirit to witness to this generation.

Roberts also discusses the nature of medical ministry as a way of complementing the healing ministry of Jesus. Jesus didn't just stamp out a disease, as is the case with the medical profession, he heals the whole person.

This meeting took place prior to opening the university. Roberts shares some of his early thoughts on creating a medical ministry at the University he was building. Many of these thoughts were the seeds of what would become the City of Faith and School of Medicine two decades later.
