Health Ministries


Adventist Health Ministries mission is to encourage and enable Adventist church leaders and members not only to experience a healthful abundant life but also to share the divine principles for whole person health with individuals in their communities and the world in need. Our goal is that each church in Northern Asia-Pacific Division may become a center for health and healing in which people may come to learn evidence-based health information, and find restoration for damaged bodies, minds, or souls.

Adventist Health Ministries seek to fulfill its role by providing resource support, leadership training, organizational development, representation, mentoring, event planning and professional support to Adventist churches and members. In addition, we seek to work in an integrative way with other Adventist Ministries and Adventist Health Institutions, as well to collaborate and partner with faith-based organizations and other institutions in our efforts.

It is God’s desire that each of us has an abundant life (John 10:10), and that means abundance of physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual wellbeing. These areas of our lives are all interconnected and cannot be neglected if we want to experience whole person health. Our God has lovingly given us divine principles to follow in order to achieve optimal health, and we are called to receive many of those benefits of living with these principles. We believe our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit and we must care for it intelligently so we can fully experience God’s presence and discern His will in our lives.

By adopting the most healthful lifestyle with adequate exercise, rest, and healthy diet, by abstaining from things that harm our mind and body, by nurturing healthy interpersonal relationships, by maintaining positive outlook and hopeful attitude, and by seeking to know God deeply and trusting in His guidance of our lives, we can begin to experience an abundant life today while also making a positive impact in the lives of those around us.
