As Christians, we are God’s new creation (2 Cor. 5:17) strengthened by His grace and the Holy Spirit to walk in newness of life toward well-being in all areas.
The seven areas of wellness grow out of our Baptism. Romans 6:4 reminds us, “We were buried therefore with [Christ] by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.”
