We are more than a community — we are a family of faith who believes that all people need the love, acceptance and forgiveness that is found in Christ Jesus. Our mission is to reach every person, family, and group in Bermuda with the distinctive, Christ-centered, global Seventh-day Adventist message of hope and wholeness.
We pursue this mission under the guidance of the Holy Spirit through:
1. PREACHING – Accepting Christ’s commission (Matthew 28:19-20), we proclaim to all the world the message of a loving God, most fully revealed in His Son’s reconciling ministry and atoning death. Recognizing the Bible to be God’s infallible revelation of His will, we present its full message, including the second advent of Christ and the continuing authority of His Ten Commandments law with its reminder of the seventh-day Sabbath.
2. TEACHING – Acknowledging that the development of mind and character is essential to God’s redemptive plan, we promote the growth of a mature understanding of and relationship to God, His Word, and the created universe.
3. HEALING – Affirming the biblical emphasis on the well-being of the whole person, we make the preservation of health and the healing of the sick a priority and through our ministry to the poor and oppressed, cooperate with the Creator in His compassionate work of restoration.
In harmony with the great prophecies of the scriptures, we see as the climax of God’s plan the restoration of all His creation back into full harmony with His perfect will and righteousness.
