Listen to the August 21st sermon from John 5:1-17  – “Do you wish to get well?” by Pastor Randy Burden here 

• Teach, preach and model the biblical concepts of wholeness, health and wellness in the Body of Christ and community

• Integrate a biblical health and wellness culture into the church and the lives of individual believers

• Reach others with the holistic gospel of Christ

Jesus taught, proclaimed the gospel, and healed every kind of disease and sickness (physical, mental, spiritual)… and he sent out his followers to do the same (Mt 4:23; Lk 9:2, 10:9; Mk16:15-17).  God cares about our spirit, mind and body and as his followers we bring that message and ministry to the church and community it serves.

 

We Love Others as We Love Ourselves

We are the temple of the Holy Spirit (I Cor 6:19-20).  As such we should care for our whole being (spirit, mind and body) in a way that honors God.  As we care for and love ourselves, we are more able to better serve and “love your neighbor as yourself” (Mat 22:36-39).  Health and wellness classes, programs and events are designed to help you in this journey.

 

God gave Gifts for Service in the Church

The gifts of healings and helps (I Cor 12:28) imply the act of “hands on” therapy and helping the sick and infirm. There is a role and calling for wellness ministers in today’s church to teach, preach, model and minister wholeness.  The gifts of healings and helps are important in the church today and are integral to the ongoing work of God and the Health & Wellness ministry of Grace Church.
