Health Ministries

Wholeness and health have been an emphasis of the Seventh-day Adventist church since the 1860s when the church began.

The Bible reminds us that the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and we have been entrusted with the privilege of maintaining and improving our spiritual, mental, social and physical health.

Health Ministries promotes good health and the prevention of ill health to help achieve this goal of wholeness.

At Oakhill, we constantly encourage people to adopt a healthy life style by practicing and training in healthy cooking, eating and exercise. The changes made using the time tested methods from God's word will transform mind, body and spirit.
