Church Health Guidelines

Christ's Method Alone: Comprehensive Health Ministry (127-13G )

“And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.”—Matt 9:35

Jesus calls every member of His Church to embrace His mission of loving service for others. As His people meet the physical, mental, social, and spiritual needs of their communities in His Name, His character is powerfully revealed. Our commitment to and love for Jesus compels us to follow in His footsteps of compassionate ministry. Ellen G White succinctly summarizes the Savior’s selfless service in these words.

Immunization Guidelines

The Seventh-day Adventist Church places strong emphasis on health and well-being. The Adventist health emphasis is based on the Bible, the inspired writings of Church co-founder Ellen G. White, and is informed by peer-reviewed scientific health literature. As such, we encourage responsible immunization/vaccination, and have no religious or faith-based reason not to encourage our adherents to responsibly participate in protective and preventive immunization programs. We value the health and safety of the population, which includes the maintenance of what is known as “herd immunity.”
