The Mission of the Sabbath School
The mission of the Sabbath School is to be a system of local church religious education that builds faith and practice. The Sabbath School is based at the local church. It builds faith through the study of the Scriptures and the doctrines and teachings of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It builds practice through the application of biblical principles and the teachings of the Seventh day Adventist Church to the individual lives of the Sabbath School members.
Objectives of the Sabbath School
The Sabbath School has four specific objectives:
1. Study of the Word
3. Commnity Outreach
4. World Mission Emphasis
These four objectives are the basis for every activity of the Sabbath School in all divisions
