Our Mission

The Mission Statement of the Northern Conference of Seventh-day Adventists in South Africa is:

  • Make Christlike disciples of people.
  • Teach obedience to all that Jesus commanded.
  • Equip them to proclaim the three angels’ messages in preparation for Jesus’ return.

What a privilege for every believer, not to only read this theoretical mission statement on paper, but also to live it out practically everyday. This is and remains the greatest witness in favour of God and his kingdom. I trust that this will be your unique experience as you tirelessly work in God’s vineyard.

In 2015 GC session which took place in San Antonio, there was a funny but poignant moment brought about by the Executive Secretary of the organization GT Ng. He stood up to give his fabulous report about the growth of the church worldwide and then he posed what seemed to be a rhetorical question to the more than 2500 delegates gathering in that meeting. “Do you know the daily percentage with which the SDA church is growing around the world?” he asked. Of course, the delegates quickly responded “NO” but with a sense of thorough expectation. “I also don’t know”, he retorted. I also have been asked questions related to theodicy (the justice of God in the face of human suffering). At first I used to go through all sorts of Theological obfuscations to defend God (as if He needed some protection from me) only to find myself in more philosophical quagmire than when I started the conversation. But I have since learned to say “I also don’t know). But what I know for sure, I will tell you.
