The Seventh-day Adventist Church is in God’s hands. He is its Founder; its Leader; its Captain; its General; and its true Head. He has continually guided this movement in the past; is daily sustaining it in the present; and will powerfully lead it into the future. Our Creator; Redeemer; and our coming King is the church’s only hope for today; tomorrow; and forever. He has providentially raised this church up for a unique mission; and it will not fail in rising to the destiny for which Christ created it. Seventh-day Adventists are part of a prophetic movement with an urgent prophetic calling. We are not merely another denomination on the landscape of religious movements. We are a divine end-time movement with an end-time purpose; an end-time message; and an end-time mission for the entire world. No matter how challenging the days ahead; no matter how dark the future becomes; no matter what difficulties the church goes through; Christ’s people; Christ’s church; Christ’s purposes; and Christ’s plan will triumph at last.
