One well-ordered, well-disciplined family tells more in behalf of Christianity than all the sermons that can be preached.

Adventist Home


Our families are where we have the greatest influence for good. God designates the family as the fundamental building block of society. As such, it becomes the foundation for civilization and a sanctuary for the individual. It is where we learn the social graces of loyalty, cooperation, and trust. It is where we learn to love ourselves and each other, to share each other’s burdens, to find meaning in our life, to give purpose to others’ lives, and to feel the value of being part of something greater than ourselves.

If you would like to include the story of how your family became Seventh-day Adventists or would like to share the obituary of someone who was a part of our conference, please use the Contact link and send it to us. Thank you.
