The Seventh-day Adventist Church, from its inception, has promoted a philosophy of health and healing based on one of its Biblical Fundamental Beliefs that the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. While developing a system of health care institutions which belt the globe, a health-promoting way of life has been taught to the church membership and in our educational institutions.
The Purpose:
The purpose of the Health Ministries Department is to encourage church members, through Divine Grace, to bring their way of life into harmony with God’s Health laws. It is necessary to do so, not just to enjoy the benefits of better health and longer life, but for the following larger, and more important purposes: moral discernment; love and respect for God, the Creator; as an act of worship and faithful stewardship.
