The church is not responsible for the dietary behavior of its congregants, but the mission of the church is to make disciples that will go into the nation to profess the word of God. The mission to serve God with efficacy and stamina will become a difficult task for many Christians if they are not healthy. In the Bible Jesus makes it undeniably clear the importance of taking care of the body. This is an important issue for pastors as well as for believers. This thesis project will help believers remember that the health of their bodies is an important part of their faith. Medical religious scholars point out that the health of Christians is worse than the health of the secular public. Modifying the dietary lifestyle of Christians requires the teachings of the pastor and church leaders, because it can help create healthier disciples. The faith of a believer should reveal a discipline lifestyle. And this lifestyle should be the representation of healthiness.
