Our Beliefs On Health

As coordinators of GOBC, we would like our members to know where we’re coming from with regards to our personal beliefs on health and the foundations our beliefs are grounded in.  We realize not everyone will hold to the same foundations as we do.  However, there is nonetheless a common bond with those who see the wisdom and benefit in properly and naturally caring for our bodies and the environment. 



Health in today’s society is such a controversial issue in so many areas and unfortunately has lost its true meaning and importance in the lives of so many people. True health has taken a back seat to convenience, poor quality, self-indulgence and man-made processed foods and medications. As a result, severe and debilitating sickness and disease are now common experiences. So many people are now in physical BONDAGE to their sicknesses. This bondage is NOT how we were designed or created to live!

But however distressing this situation may appear, there is HOPE! Hope in the One who created our miraculously self-healing bodies.

For our family, we believe:

  1. Everything we need for true physical nourishment and great health comes from the Provider, our Heavenly Father.
  2. The true answers to health can only be found in the inspired and infallible scriptures of God’s Holy Word – the Bible.
  3. True health is built from the inside, cell by cell through giving the body the proper diet.
  4. True health is a result of a LIFESTYLE of natural living that encompasses every area of our physicial AND spiritual lives.
  5. The Bible supports foods from both the plant and animal kingdoms.
  6. There is a direct relationship between food and health.
  7. Our body is a temple of God, and we are responsible before Him to be good stewards of it.

You will find so many different viewpoints and different diet plans out in the world. But true science (especially, medical science – since it is our focus) should be SIMPLE and cannot operate apart from God. For God created all things, including science. When science deviates from God’s laws and principles, it becomes a perversion.


“…With men [it is] impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.”
(Mark 10:27)

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…”
(Hosea 4:6)

“Do you not know that you are a temple of God and {that} the Spirit of God dwells in you?
If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are.”
(1 Corinthians 3:16-17)

“Whether then you eat, or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
(1 Corinthians 10:31)

Many have never realized that wisdom can be found in the scriptures regarding health and nutrition. We have subconsciously placed our hope more in man than with God for our health. But we encourage and challenge you to seek His Word for answers to your physical and spiritual lives.

If you seek Him, you WILL find Him (2 Chronicles 15:2).
