BEREAN SDA NORMAL
Our mission is to reach every nation, kindred, tongue and people with God’s final warning message to the world with the Three Angels’ Messages of Revelation 14:6-12.In response to God’s invitation to come and abide in him, we extend that same invitation to others.
As we are restored back into God’s image, growing spiritually in God’s word, living and growing as a family, serving and witnessing to our community and the world.In harmony with and under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we will pursue this mission through:
Unity of the body of Christ through recognizing the Bible to be God’s infallible revelation of His Will and Righteousness.
Restoration of the family through the development of mind and character by God’s redemptive love.
Cooperating with the creator in his compassionate work of restoration of mankind, through serving and witnessing and mending broken lives.
