The purpose of Health Ministries is to promote the physical, mental and spiritual health of our congregation and community, transforming their lives in preparation for the heavenly kingdom. As followers of Jesus, our goal is to receive results and to gain a better way of healthy living. The Health Ministries team conducts programs such as, health and cooking classes, stress-control, weight management programs, an annual health expo and other related activities open to both members and the community at large.
The Church believes its responsibility to make Christ known to the
world includes a moral obligation to preserve human dignity by promoting
optimal levels of physical, mental, and spiritual health.
In addition to ministering to those who are ill, this responsibility
extends to the prevention of disease through effective health education and
leadership in promoting optimum health, free of tobacco, alcohol, other
drugs, and unclean foods. Where possible, members shall be encouraged to
follow a primarily vegetarian diet.
