The Sabbath School is the primary religious education system of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and has four purposes:
The mission of the Sabbath School is to be a system of local church religious education that builds faith and practice. Based at the local church, Sabbath School builds faith through the study of the Scriptures and the doctrines and teachings of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It builds practice through the application of biblical principles of the Seventh-day Adventist Church to the individual lives of the Sabbath School members.
The mission of the Personal Ministries department is to provide resources and train church members to unite their efforts with the ministry and church officers in the final proclamation of the gospel of salvation in Christ.
The aim of the department is to enlist every member in active soul-winning service for God. It was established as a major setting for soul winning activities in the Church. It exists to teach and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ in response to the command of Jesus, in the context of the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14:6-12. Top honour this original purpose, the Personal Ministries Department continues to communicate the good news with the objective to win, hold, and train for Jesus Christ, men, women, youth, boys and girls.
The focus of the personal ministries, beginning this quinquenium (2015-2020) henceforth, is to empower all our members, young and old, men and women, our children and those with special needs, for Total Member Involvement (TMI). It’s our plea from the SAU family, that our pastors, elders and other church leaders that they draw relevant material from “The International Institute of Christian Discipleship (IICD)’ for training purposes. We can find this curriculum from GC website. The curriculum is a wonderful and relevant course that will catapult churches and members into active witnessing and soul-winning.
