Parksville Seventh-day Adventist® Church

Healthy Thoughts


The Seventh-day Adventist Church upholds the biblical teaching that God is our creator, and, as His created beings, our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Thus, we rely on biblical principles to guide us in making lifestyle choices.  To this end, the church has sponsored numerous seminars on healthy living, and we offer this page on our website to those seeking to achieve optimal vitality and mimimize the risk of chronic diseases.

Our approach to healthy living encompasses several essential factors, including adequate rest and exercise, avoiding harmful substances, cultivating positive social relationships, and maintaining adequate hydration. Of particular importance is our emphasis on a plant-based diet, which is one of the key components of our lifestyle approach.
