As an integral part of the mission, structure and function of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the community, members of the Social Ministries embrace the concept that humanity was endowed with the innate capacity for socialization, companionship, to be loved and to give love, and to procreate, and for fellowship as recorded in (Geneses 1:26,27;2:7,21-25
The social instinct is given to us of God, for our pleasure and benefit. "By mutual contact minds receive polish and refinement, by social interaction, acquaintances are formed and friendships contracted which result in a unity of heart and an atmosphere of love which is pleasing in the sight of heaven." (Testimonies, volume 6, page 172).
To prepare individuals to embrace biblical principles of a holistic and healthy lifestyle here in anticipation to live in the New Earth at Christ's Second Coming.
We believe that man is a holistic being in mind, body, and spirit, created in the image of God, when he came forth from the hand of the creator God.
Therefore, we strive to promote and foster an environment of hospitality to all church members and the communities at large in our sphere of influence by practicing the following Biblical injunctions:
Romans 12:13; 1 Timothy 3:2, Titus 1:8; Hebrews 13:1, 1 Peter 4:9 to be not forgetful to entertain strangers as we serve others that include:
-Church members, non-members, visitors from far and near, and the communities who fellowship with us for physical as well as spiritual food at church and in private homes and other social events.
-Creating an environment that encourages unity, a sense of belonging which generates a sense of satisfaction.
IDENTITY AND IMPLEMENTATION
We strive to utilize social gatherings as a vehicle for outreach efforts to reach individuals for Christ's Kingdom. We use Christ's method of mingling with people, meet their physical needs, then share the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ with them.
