Our Mission, Vision & Value
Mission: The Burnt Mills Seventh-day Adventist Church exists to serve the physical, mental and spiritual needs of the Silver Spring community, preparing them for the Second Coming of Jesus by giving the Great Commission of Christ found in Matthew 28:18-20, through the presentation of the Three Angels Message of Revelation 14:6-11.
Vision: The Burnt Mills Seventh-day Adventist Church vision is to disciple each member to know and experience Jesus enough to love Him, love Him enough to trust Him, trust Him enough to obey Him, and to share Him with others, discipling them to do the same.
Value: The Burnt Mills Seventh-day Adventist Church core value is to reflect the life of Jesus in our own lives by diligently studying the word of God and being a people of prayer; then we can accomplish the mission of our vision.
About Seventh-day Adventists
The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a mainstream Protestant church with approximately 19 million members worldwide, including more than one million members in North America. The Seventh-day Adventist Church seeks to enhance quality of life for people everywhere and to let people know that Jesus is coming again soon.
Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father's will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone.
When He returned to heaven following the resurrection, Jesus left the Holy Spirit to serve as our Comforter and Counselor. He promised to return to earth a second time to complete His plan of salvation and take His people to heaven. Adventists are among the believers who look forward to that day.
Adventists believe that God is concerned with the quality of human life, and that everything—the way we live, eat, speak, think, treat each other, and care for the world around us—is part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.
