Health Ministry team believes
  • Prayer, Praise Worship
  • Prayer connects us to speaking directly to God
    for your daily needs
  • Praise is the time we spend in private away from
    everyone just giving God thanks
  • Worship is a way of life. It is the way we do
    what God has called us to do. The time we
    fellowship with other believers. Caring for our
    temple is included as worship.
  • Trust God for ideas. Ask Him. The work is all
    divine and its all about HIM! Not us.
  • Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest
    prosper and be in health, even as thy soul
    prospereth. 3 John 12
