The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a worldwide church, and the world budget is our contribution to this global mission.
From the earliest days of the Adventist Church, men and women have responded to Christ’s great commission by looking beyond their won shores. Today, Seventh-day Adventists are one of the fastest growing Christian churches in the world—with more than 3,000 people being baptized every day! In more than 200 countries and in more than 600 languages, the message of Jesus’ soon return can be heard.
Historically, it has been the privilege and duty of the materially-blessed members in developed nations to plant seeds of growth in poorer regions of the world. New evangelistic strategies that address ever-changing global realities are constantly being developed, and our offerings give life to these new programs.
My Personal Giving Plan recommends one to three percent of our income be set aside for this global outreach. Working together, we can make sure the Adventist message continues to grow worldwide.
Somewhere in the world, somebody becomes a new Seventh-day Adventist every 25 seconds!
A new Adventist church is organized every 3 to 5 hours!
Our offerings often have a multiplied value in countries with weaker currencies, enabling our gifts to accomplish a tremendous amount of good.
