Bern, Switzerland [EUD Health Ministries Department; CD EUDNews]. The Health Ministries Department of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church promotes a healthy lifestyle for the best function of body, mind and soul, to God’s glory, in order to restore the moral image of God in man by healing the wounds which sin has made.

The Seventh-day Adventist Church believes that man was made originally in the image of God. The entrance of sin into the world marred the image and resulted in a separation of man from his Maker, to his detriment physically, mentally, and spiritually. The church believes that the health ministry in the relief of suffering and the treatment of disease may contribute directly to the restoration of the whole man.

The health ministry of the church – by education, by precept and example, and by making the laws of healthful living understood and accepted – can assist mankind in avoiding these illnesses caused by the violations of health principles. Thus the health ministry may contribute to the avoidance of illness, to the restoration of health here on earth, and to the reconciliation of man to God, which is a preparation for eternal life hereafter.

The purpose of the upcoming Health Conference in Prague is to explore various aspects of healing in the context of the biblical worldview and the Adventist philosophy on health and healing.

What is healing according to the Bible? Is there a difference between healing and restoration?

Is faith a key factor in healing? What about prayer? How do the mind-body-spirit connections affect healing? How do lifestyle practices contribute to healing? What can we learn from epigenetics?

"These and several other related topics will be addressed at the European Health Conference through presentations, workshops, panels and discussions. We invite you to attend, to be enriched and also to empower others as you share from your own experience and knowledge", so Viriato Ferreira, Health Ministries Director in the EUD region.
