The Faith and Health Initiative is a Biblical worldview of our bodies. We know that the human body is made up of 3 individual parts that make up a whole; body, soul, and spirit.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 says, “Now may the God of all peace sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Liken it to the Trinity; Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three separate entities but ONE, all with individual tasks but working together, not one without the other. The world would come at us from the outside in, through the body and mind but Christ causes us to come alive, through His spirit to our spirit at our confession and repentance creating a “new” being in Him. Christ work then renews our mind, and heart, and that causes us to change our behaviors in all areas of life, eating, drinking, personal care, personal time and our interactions with others. Christ works from the inside-out. This is our mission and goal to see us as renewed works in progress through the spirit, changing our thoughts and then changing our behaviors to make us “fit for the kingdom's work” that God has called us to with vitality and good health.
