There are three important beliefs incorporated in the name Thirty First Seventh-day Adventists. We are people who passionately believe in the nearness of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ - hence, we are Adventists. The second part of our name - Seventh-day - refers to the biblical day of worship, the seventh-day of the week, i.e. Saturday, or Sabbath. Finally, Thirty First.....Church means we are the beautiful and peaceful tabernacle of God’s dwelling whereby all men can come and find rest in Jesus.
Our Mission: The mission of the Thirty First Seventh-day Adventist Church is to proclaim to all people the everlasting gospel in the context of the three angel's messages of Revelation 14:6-12, leading them to accept Jesus as their personal Savior and to unite with His church, and nurturing them in preparation for His soon return.
Our Method: 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. 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 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 and relationship to God, His Word, and the created universe.
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, we cooperate with the Creator in His compassionate work of restoration.
Our Vision: 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.
