We are each called to wholeness — to holistic well-being — so that we may live a life of plenty. That's why our benefits and programs, which are based on A Theology of Benefits, foster the wholeness of our members in four key areas:
We become more spiritually whole when we nurture our relationship with God through worship and prayer, and with others through fellowship and service.
The health we have is a gift from God, and we honor God when we care for it by eating well, exercising often, and preventing illness and injury.
Financial stability reduces stress and allows us to care for ourselves and others. It frees us to be generous and faithful stewards of all we have received.
God gives us unique talents and abilities ― gifts meant to be used in service to others. Being well vocationally is to be a faithful steward of these gifts.
