STATEMENT – WHY WE EXIST FOR SERVICE
BLEESINGS & JOY
IN GOD’S WORK: HIS COMMISSION TO SAVE
The Lord will bless you and I as we carryout His Gospel directive to glorify
Him through uplifting people to Christ, to the noblest, highest standards of
morality, purity and holiness, with powerful principles of love and
health, to equip His children with body, mind and soul fit for Life
Eternal, as we all journey to His very near and exciting Second Coming.
OUR EXISTENCE –
TO LIVE FOR HIM WHO DIED FOR US
The reason for our existence is to work for Him and with Him in finishing the
work of spreading the Gospel of Salvation to all peoples, bringing to the end
of the world the loving and powerful messages of the Three Angels of Revelation
14, giving glory to the Creator of Heaven and Earth, honoring His sovereignty
over us by obeying all His Ten Commandments for which He came to uphold and
died for to pay for the penalty it
required for our sins – to live for Him who paid for our salvation with His
PROPHECY AND FAITH OF JESUS
We find our meaning and fullest existence in obeying His command to follow His
Example as when He walked among men while on Earth, to keep His commandments
the way He exemplified in His life here, to love as He loved, to honor Him in
remembering and setting aside His Holy Sabbath as the mark of His sovereignty
as Creator and Lordship over us. For our
compass, we embrace the guiding principles of the Bible, to honor, respect and
faithfully follow the Spirit of Prophecy and the faith of Jesus, to share with
others the joy of His Salvation and His very soon appearing – the blessed hope
of His Second Coming.
HEARING THE WORD
The need is the call. People cannot live
by bread alone. People daily need to
fill and fortify the heart with God’s power and truth through hearing of the
Word. We see the need and feel called to
fill that need.
THERE IS NO
COMPETITION BETWEEN LIGHTHOUSES
God calls people to work for Him. His commission
is utmost. He wants each of us to work
for Him – He is the only Master – He will take care of all the intricacies that
result from honest obedience to His will.
We are not to fear but to love.
In this Battle of Life, God seeks to have us look to Him only and not
faint by looking at people. We co-exist
as called to cooperate with Him in His work and to work side by side all His
other children as guided by His Spirit to lift up to the highest the standards
of purity, holiness and love.
DISCERNMENT: EXAMINE EVERY SPIRIT
In a world where the boundaries of truth and error are a constant challenge, we
are asked to test every spirit and to be cognizant of the stealth and
fierceness of the enemy of souls. We
feel called to exercise keen discernment in the choice of entertainment which characterize
Heavenly, innocent joy, artistic refinement, beauty of holiness, savored with
the spirit of humility, true repentance, and subjecting self to Christ and
avoiding self-centeredness and shunning self worship.
GOD WILL SUPPLY
– WE ONLY HAVE TO OBEY
We will not solicit for money. As He has
already won the battle, God will supply the daily necessities for accomplishing
His work, and He does not want you and I to worry about where the funds will
come, as the bread and water is sure as He promised – our main duty is to do
our job of carrying out His Gospel. His
Spirit will quicken hearts to see the need and supply it. He has at His command all of Heaven’s treasures
– else He would have asked us to do otherwise.
He does not want you and I to worry about tomorrow – our duty is only to
do the work He has bidden, to exercise humble faith, and to invite others and
share the joy and opportunity of cooperating with Him in His work of uplifting
and saving souls.
