The Approach and Philosophy of Adventist Education
The Seventh-day Adventist Church recognizes God as the ultimate source of existence, truth, and power. In the beginning God created in His image a perfect humanity, a perfection later marred by sin. Education in its broadest sense is a means of returning human beings to their original relationship with God. The distinctive characteristics of this Adventist worldview, built around creation, the fall, redemption, and re-creation, are derived from the Bible and the inspired writings of Ellen G. White.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church still sends out hundreds of cross-cultural missionaries every year—more than any other Adventist-affiliated ministry. For years most Adventists heard very little about the church’s mission work, and many thought it had died out completely.
Children’s Ministries is about developing the faith of children ages birth to fourteen. While Sabbath School provides for religious education once a week, Children’s Ministries looks at the whole child and seeks to provide multiple ministries that will lead children to Jesus and disciple them in their daily walk with Him.
The mission of the Children’s Ministries Department is to nurture children into a loving, serving relationship with Jesus. And that every child in the world will be invited to know Jesus Christ and accept Him as his/her personal Friend and Savior.
With “Building Bridges of Hope” as the overarching mission of the Communication Department, SPUC works towards that realization by the following:
We believe our body is the temple of God and as such we have a special responsibility to protect and care for our bodies.
The promotion of good health and a healthy lifestyle is an integral part of the mission of the Seventh-day Adventists.
The Ministerial Association of the South Philippine Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists exists to serve the church in its proclamation of the everlasting gospel and in its divine mission to prepare to meet their soon-coming Lord.

The department of Stewardship assists administration in accomplishing the mission of the church through leadership training and the education of the church members in stewardship principles. More specifically, the purpose of the department of Stewardship is to aid in the integration of the faith walk with God into every area of life-individually and corporately.
