Mission Statement of the British Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists
The mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is to lead people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to continue as His disciple, to proclaim the everlasting gospel embraced by the three angels' messages (Revelation 14:6-12) and to prepare the world for Christ's soon return.
We pursue this mission under the guidance of the Holy Spirit through:
Preaching: Accepting Christ's commission (Matthew 28:18-20), we proclaim to all the world the message of a loving God, most fully revealed in His Son's reconciling ministry and atoning death. Recognising 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 Commandment law with its reminder of the seventh-day Sabbath.
Teaching: Acknowledging that development of mind and character is essential to God's redemptive plan, we promote the growth of a mature understanding of God, His Word, and the created universe.
Healing: Affirming the biblical emphasis on the wellbeing of the whole person, we make the preservation of health and healing of the sick a priority and through our ministry to the poor and oppressed, co-operate 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 to full harmony with His perfect will and righteousness.
