“Why I am a Seventh-day Adventist Protestant Christian Monotheistic Theist.” Our world is increasingly diverse in terms of worldviews. No longer are we merely speaking to Baptists, Catholics, and Presbyterians. Now we routinely encounter Muslims, Buddhists, “pagans”, and atheists. Are we still able to articulate the reasons for our faith when we encounter others for whom the Bible is not authoritative. Let’s examine the foundational reasons for “our faith”.

This presentation explores what the Scriptures tell us about the sacred calling God has placed upon His remnant people in the last days to faithfully advance His kingdom, proclaiming the good news to all people groups around the globe. And further, how can we evaluate our mission progress?


This presentation explores the central focus of our mission—to make disciples who are able to stand loyal to Christ in the last days, though the heavens fall. Particular attention will be looking at a disciple-centered model of soul-winning and adjusting our ministry to ensure wholistic and transformational growth of our disciples.
