THE VISIT

JesusA seasonal imaginary conversation between a senior and junior angel from the splendours of heaven, watching “The Visit” (Taken from New Testament Christianity by L B Philips, 1956).

“The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighbourhood. We saw the glory with our own eyes, the one-of-a-kind glory, like Father, like Son, Generous inside and out, true from start to finish.” (John 1:14 The Message)

 

 

 


 

Fundamental Belief No. 21 of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and the Theology of Stewardship

 

What’s the point of Christian doctrine? Why have a doctrine of Stewardship? Along with the other 27 bible beliefs Adventists regard as important, the doctrine of Christian Stewardship;

1. Edifies the church
2. Preserves the truth
3. Communicates the gospel in all its richness.

The doctrine calls for far more than mere belief – it calls for action.

Ministry Magazine Archives - Stewardship

 

Ministry Magazine Archives contain articles on Stewardship from 1928 – 1915. Each month TED Stewardship Ministries will dig into the archive and one that inspires and which is still relevant to today.

This month:
Monica Gullon considers Environmental Stewardship for the local church – and seven simple things the church pastor, and the church can do, to be better stewards of the planet God has given us... including ecological awareness and energy conservation. An article from June 1993.

But if you can’t wait for another article until next month, click here, type the word ‘Stewardship’ into the archive search engine, and find the article that will most help your ministry.


 

Tithes & Offerings

 

Stewardship Tithes and Offerings Readings 2018

Thanks to Todd Frias for editing these readings, for use in the TED context.

 

Returning Tithe is an act of worship. Giving a donation or offering to support the work of the church locally, nationally or internationally is also an act of worship. The General Conference prepare annually introductory readings to help provide meaning and context to this weekly activity.
