"Do you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body." 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Health Ministries is not only about assisting our members with living healthier, happier lives; it is also about reaching out to the surrounding community with health fairs and healthy living options.
God has given us only one body and it belongs to Him. Since we know that our bodies belong to God, we should take special care of what we put in our bodies and what we do to our bodies outwardly.
God’s Plan for health and happiness is spelled out in the Bible. Mind, Body and Spirit are connected and must be guarded if one is to stay healthy in this world filled with stress, mental illness, heart disease, cancer, AIDS and other maladies that are ravaging our society. We look to the Holy Bible for the truth and utilize inspired writing from the book, ‘Ministry of Healing’ by Ellen G. White as the key documents for understanding Spiritual Laws and Christ’s Ministry.
The relationship that exists between the mind and the body are intertwined. As followers of Jesus, our ultimate goal is to receive results through ‘His grace’ thus gain a better way of living. We would be remiss if we do not include this knowledge in our personal witness, which incorporates the Spiritual Laws as well as ‘practical measures’ for 21st Century world plagued with busy lifestyles, dangerous distractions and nutritionally depleted foods, products and laboratory produced food-stuff.
