Health and Healing

The Camden SDA Church is committed to the work of Jesus Christ in ministering not only to the spiritual but physical, mental, and emotional needs of our community.

It is Jesus’ desire for you to be in health. God is not the author of disease but is the Great Physician. It is His desire that you be in good health just as much as He wants your soul to be (in good health) right with him.

3 John 1:2 “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

Perhaps the most underrated medicine is happiness. The Bible and Science teach us that happiness literally heals, while sadness, depression, and anger literally dry your bones.

Proverbs 17:22 “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”

As Seventh Day Adventists we believe that our bodies are the temple of the holy spirit and that we are to protect our bodies as much as is within our power.

1 Corinthians 6:19 “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?”

Seventh Day Adventists live an average of ten years longer than the average person. This is attributed to our firm commitment to living in accordance with Biblical health principles which are the foundation to a healthy life. An easy way to remember this foundation is the NEWSTART program:

It is our desire to serve the community of Camden and the surrounding areas as Christ would. Our health ministry department focuses on educating people about how to heal illnesses using Biblical methods. We love you and if there is anything we can do to minister to you or your family please let us know.
