Physical, Mental, Emotional, Social and Spiritual Wellbeing

The Maranatha family desires our community to live healthy, prosperous and happy lives.  We recognizes the autonomy of each individual and his or her God-given power of choice. Rather than mandating standards of behavior, we strive to live as positive examples of God’s love and care.

We believe God calls us to care for our bodies, treating them with the respect a divine creation deserves. Gluttony and excess, even of something good, can be detrimental to our health.  The key to wellness lies in a life of balance and temperance.

It is God’s desire that each of us may have 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 the many benefits of living by 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.
