  • Disease prevention is a key to public health - it is better to prevent disease than to treat it. Vaccines are one of the most cost-effective public health tools available for preventing disease and death.

    Vaccines are responsible for the control of many infectious diseases that were once common in our country.

    Immunizations are one of the most important ways parents can protect their children from preventable diseases.

  • Spiritual immaturity causes Christians to say immature things, make immature decisions and act in immature ways. It is God’s will we become spiritually mature. 

    The Bible says in II Peter 3:18, “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”          

    The Apostle Paul in I Corinthians 3:2-3 scolds the believers for their spiritual immaturity. They are on milk when they should be on meat. Would this describe many Christians that you know?
