Teleios has discovered, through a series of planned research studies and medical literature reviews, that adherence to the Christian faith (confidence in salvation by faith alone as well as ongoing prayer, fellowship, service, obtaining biblical knowledge and praise) greatly enhances well-being in both healthy individuals and those afflicted by sickness.

Further, our research has demonstrated that the greater adherence to Christian principles that promote wise living, the greater the effects on wellbeing. We invite you to explore and download the results of individual studies.
