The JESUS Model

Mission Statement:

To fully equip dedicated Seventh-day Adventist young people, who love Christ, to be His end-time disciples, winning the world for Him.

Why did Jesus come? Many say that He came to die for us. That is, indeed, true;
however, Jesus Christ came not only to die for us but to live for us. Throughout His entire
life, He lived out His teachings in both action and in thought. Nor did He ever sin in action
or in thought. By manifesting His principles of unconditional love, humility, and service
with His 100% man and 100% divine form, Christ set an example—a model for all of us
to follow.

Now, the real question arises: “Why are we here?” Mass destruction, natural disasters,
imminent nuclear wars, shootings, and utter chaos are all around us; and this question
still remains: “Why are we here? What is our purpose?” God Himself has purposefully
placed every single human being here in this spiritually dark world to bring hope. Jesus
has already done and is doing His part in the plan of our salvation and the spreading of
the gospel (Matt. 28:16-20; Acts 1:8-9). Influenced by the example Christ has set before
us in His lifetime, we are better able to carry out the mission He has entrusted us with.
Jesus’ entire life is a testimony of how our own personal and individual Christian walk
should be. We need not look any further for a standard in which to live our life by:

Jesus Christ—He is our BLUEPRINT.

He is our EXAMPLE.

Jesus Christ—He is our MODEL.
