The stewardship department encourages faithful financial support of the Lord’s work through spiritual motivation. It has a selection of materials to assist the church in educating church members in faithful tithing and support of church budget.


Offertory Reading


The Adventist church treasures the three angels’ message as the center of its theology (Rev. 14:6–12). The reader of Revelation 14 knows this is the final message to be proclaimed. It is an imagery of the end of the world as presented by Jesus in the explanation of the parable of the weeds (Matt. 13:38, 39). The implications of this message in missiology are profound for Adventism. It lifts up the centrality of the gospel and its worldwide proclamation preceding the second coming of Christ. Therefore, the everlasting gospel and mission are central to the Adventist Church.

The proclamation of the Gospel in North America has encountered many challenges. Growth in many cities has been possible due to immigration. It is not a racial problem, but an indigenous one. As immigrants acculturate and subsequent generations assimilate into the mainstream, God loses relevancy. Science, wealth, and relativism take precedence over truth.

“History and experience also discourage the idea that scientific progress will necessarily lead to a better world. It has become obvious that a rising standard of living does not necessarily result in personal happiness. Wealth has proven to be no shield against dysfunction, addiction, and crime. Instead, increased affluence has led to increased stress and anxiety” (Jon Paulien, Everlasting Gospel: Ever Changing World, 49).

Ellen White reminds the church that “new life into old methods of labor is needed” as well as new plans and methods of evangelism (Stewardship, 190). Let’s fund the mission to finish the work.
