Studying Allied Health and Psychology From a Distinctly Biblical Worldview
Cedarville’s approach to allied health and psychology is founded on the belief that every individual is created by God in His image — but is separated from Him because of sin and in need of a Savior. As you’re taught to bring physical or mental healing to a patient, you’ll recognize that the greatest help you can offer is salvation through Jesus Christ.
You’ll discover how caring well for our bodies is an act of stewardship and worship to the One who created us.
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
