Abstract

This thesis will focus on creating and sustaining a health and wellness ministry within the local church. The local church should be not only a place that promotes spiritual health, but one that promotes and advocates for physical health and wellness. The thesis will outline how Capital Baptist Church (CBC) is making a growing and sustaining impact within the local church, community, and throughout the United States, while meeting a vital need in today's culture through a holistic Christian approach to life. This document will be a tool for other local churches to use in starting and sustaining a health and wellness program as a way for both sanctification and community outreach.
