Health

Our Mission

To follow in the footsteps of Christ, who while on earth, spend much of His time performing medical ministry. As Jesus revealed, healing is not only confined to the physical part of man, but includes the social, spiritual and emotional dimensions, all essential to a complete and abundant life. It is our Divine mandate to make man whole. By doing so, we exemplify the love, compassion and mercy of our Saviour. This is true Christianity in practice.

Our Vision

Every individual should be made aware that our bodies are the temple of God. Through our health initiatives and church members we aim to promote, courage, equip and help people adopt a healthy way of living that would prevent disease, delay pre-ature aging, unnecessary deaths and live a holistic lifestyle through the use of scientifically proven data which are consistent with the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy.
