Its work and mission is worldwide, reaching to every corner of the earth by preaching, teaching, witnessing, radio, TV, internet Bible study schools, literature, health and humanitarian work.
It calls upon all to accept the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ and honestly examine all beliefs with teachings of the entire Scriptures. Adventist church accepted the challenge be ever learning, clarifying, expanding, and correcting its understanding and practice of Biblical message. It appeals to all people and Christians everywhere to have faith and courage to follow where Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit through such biblical revelation may lead. In time of almost universal compromise and confusion “the Advent movement” is a call to be true to Scriptures rather than to many man-made traditions that obscure or contradict God’s revelation in His word.
