The Anderson Seventh-day Adventist Church is part of a world-wide organization with more than 18 million members in countries around the world (40,000 of which reside in the Northern California Conference which we are also a part of). Our message is one of proclamation, changed lives and a clear mission (see our yearly calendar here for a list of what we are doing now). After much prayer and study, we developed the following outline of our purpose:
Our Mission: Declaring to each individual their eternal value in Jesus and preparing them for His soon-return!
Our Vision: We envision ourselves continually promoting oneness, prayer and the empowerment of leaders in our church so that we become people who embody our mission. Additionally, we see ourselves using Christ's method to declare to each person their eternal value in Jesus and to prepare them for His soon-return. Specifically, we plan to accomplish our Mission by:
1. Becoming acquainted with and identifying the needs of Anderson & surrounding communities.
2. Winning the confidence of the community by meeting the needs we become aware of through education, ministries and service.
3. Inviting many to follow Jesus through the use of house groups, public evangelism and ministries in the Anderson & surrounding areas.
About Seventh-day Adventists
Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons--the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit--make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father's will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone. More >>
