The Adventist Church believes its responsibility to make Christ known to the world includes a moral obligation to preserve human dignity by promoting optimal levels of physical, mental, and spiritual health.
Both mental and spiritual vigor are in great degree dependent upon physical strength and activity; consequently, whatever promotes physical health promotes the development of a strong mind and a well-balanced character.
At First University, the health and temperance team is dedicated to promoting physical well being as a means to spiritual health and wellness. Our health evangelism focus is the social determinants of health.
