Healthy Temple Ministry

Mission Statement

The ministry's goal is to promote healthy lifestyles for the total care of our temple to the glory and honor of God.  Our scriptural foundation is "19Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's" (I Cor. 6:19-20 NIV).
