Chapter 13 Highlights

The messages of the Three Angels found in Revelation 14:6-12 is little known and understand by the vast majority of people living on planet earth. As Seventh-day Adventist Christians we believe that our main task on earth is to share these messages with everyone, everwhere.

In order to do so God has encouraged men and women to use various avenues of ministry:

Publishing - the printed page still has a great power in our world and many are led to Jesus and His Truth through Glow Tracts, books (like the Great Controversy), magazines (like Signs of the Times), Bible study guides, and missionary books.

Here at Mentone we believe in the power of the printed page!

Health - “When properly conducted, the health work is an entering wedge, making a way for other truths to reach the heart” ( Testimonies for the Church, vol. 6, p. 327).

The Seventh-day Adventist Church operates nearly 200 hospitals and sanitariums and approximately 300 clinics, as well as providing health education through lifestyle centers, printed publications, vegetarian cooking classes, smoking-cessation seminars, and many other health events. (Discipleship Handbook, p. 90)

Community Services and Humanitarian Aid - Adventist Community Services in the North American Division consists of more than 1,100 centers run by local Adventist churches. These centers provide services that may include giving food and clothing to those in need, disaster response, tutoring and mentoring programs, elder care, community development, and urban ministries. Other divisions of the world church also have active ACS programs based on local needs. ADRA is the worldwide humanitarian aid agency of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, with a presence in more than 130 countries. Organized for the specific purposes of individual and community development and international disaster relief, ADRA ministers to the needs of people without regard to race, gender, and political or religious affiliation. (Discipleship Handbook, p. 91)

Education - Seventh-day Adventists view education, in its broadest sense, as a means of restoring the image of God in humanity. “To restore in man the image of his Maker, to bring him back to the perfection in which he was created, to promote the development of body, mind, and soul, that the divine purpose in his creation might be realized—this was to be the work of redemption. This is the object of education, the great object of life” ( Education, pp. 15, 16).

True education is founded in God's word, the Holy Bible, is well balanced between physical, mental, and spiritual studies, and its main purpose is to train missionaries to share the Three Angels' Messages with the world.

Foreign Missions - There is something very special about hearing the gospel in your own language. For that reason countless men, women, and children has left their native lands to go to other countries to live among the people, learn their language and culture, and share the everlasting gospel with them in meaningful ways.

Here at Mentone we believe in foreign missions!

Media - For many years the Seventh-day Adventist Church has been at the forefront of Christian media ministries. Television, radio, and Internet ministries are operated by the church or by dedicated members with a burden for spreading the gospel.

Hope Channel, the official television network of the Adventist Church, and the Three Angels Broadcasting Network (3ABN), a supporting ministry of the church, each broadcast in multiple languages to appeal to a wide global audience. Adventist World Radio, Voice of Prophecy, It Is Written, Breath of Life, Faith for Today, and Amazing Facts are media ministries that have utilized radio, television, or the Internet to broadcast biblical truth for decades. And while these organizations are among the largest, they are only a few of the many media ministries seeking to communicate the three angels’ messages to today’s world. (p. 94)
