Zarephath Health Center

About Us

» How We Started

The Zarephath Health Center is located on the scenic campus of Zarephath, in Somerset, NJ, also home of Star 99.1, Zarephath Christian Church, and Somerset Christian College. We began in September 2003 with a specific mission--to help the churches meet the health care needs of the poor, uninsured and under-insured.

We take our model from that of the Good Samaritan. In the Bible, Jesus tells the story of a man who was beaten and left to die on the side of the road. A minister and a religious teacher came by and walked around him, feeling that they did not have the time or means to help. Then a Samaritan, a religious outcast, stopped, cared for his immediate needs, and took him to a place where he could recover. He paid the bills as well, promising to return and pay more if other expenses were incurred. Jesus finished this story, telling those around him to "Go and do likewise."

As we develop this website, we hope to make it clear how we can help. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
