Health Ministry

Do you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body.
1Cor 6:19-20

Health Ministry shares the mission of Jesus Christ ... Shalom

When Jesus appeared to the apostles for the first time after the resurrection, he said, "Peace be with you," repeatedly. The Hebrew word in these verses (John 20:19-29) is "shalom" - a word which means "peace," but carries with it so much more. "Shalom" means a "wholeness and an integrity in which all the facets of one's life are in harmony: one's physical, spiritual, emotional and moral health, and one's relationships with God and others." It is a concept that no one English word can convey. That kind of wholeness and integration, where everything in one's life is in perfect order, is what Jesus wishes for his followers. The church was given the task to carry on that mission of Jesus - to lead humankind to renewal, restoration, and wholeness.

For I will restore you to health; of your wounds I will heal you, says the LORD.
Jeremiah 30:17
