Health is the gracious gift of God, and is preserved best by choosing the most healthful lifestyle possible, empowered by the grace of God.We believe in a "ministry of healing" by which we can be restored to wholeness. Our concept of "whole" involves "the whole person": spiritual, physical, mental and social — as we do not exist in isolation. We emphasize the prevention of diseases through simple lifestyle patterns that permit God’s restorative powers to work more effectively on our behalf, while in no way minimizing the effectiveness of proven therapy where disease has already occurred. We also believe firmly in the same Power that healed the paralytic in Luke 5: "The paralytic found in Christ healing for both the soul and the body. He needed health of soul before he could appreciate health of body. Before the physical malady could be healed, Christ must bring relief to the mind, and cleanse the soul from sin. This lesson should not be overlooked. . . The peace which He alone can impart would restore vigor to the mind and health to the body." Ministry of Healing 77
