HEALTH MINISTRY

OAC believes your WHOLE life matters and Jesus’ message offers us all hope and the Bible contains practical insights from our Creator about how we can optimize our health and wellness. We endorse effective practices that are both mentioned in ancient scripture and endorsed by current scientific research.
