The goal of Health Ministry is to demonstrate God’s Love and ministry through health education and spiritual support to meet the physical, mental, and spiritual needs of the congregation and community in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle/body and to decrease hospitalizations while living a productive life glorifying God.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 English Standard Version (ESV)

19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
