    Do you have the chords for the NPUC Pathfinder Camporee Theme Song?

  4. danserns

    We’re working on this and hope to post them by Oct 20th. It they aren’t there by then it is because we weren’t able to obtain them.

    Hello Dan,

    Why is the Adventist Church now teaching Roman Catholic Spiritual Formation !?


  9. danserns

    Hi Rich—

    I did not know that the Seventh-day Adventist Church is teaching Roman Catholic Spiritual Formation.

    I do know that we have high admiration for a number of men who once served as Roman Catholic priests, such as Martin Luther, John Huss and John Wycliffe. :) (See The Great Controversy, chapters 5-11 found at http://www.whiteestate.org/books/gc/gc.asp.)

    Blessings to you in your commitment to follow the truth of Jesus as found in His word.

    Dear Mr. Serns,
    We here at the staff of the Ka ‘Elele, the school newspaper of Hawaiian Mission Academy, would like to ask your permission to use the picture near the top of this webpage of Jesus’s second coming. It will be used as part of our On the Christian Path column. Your consideration of this request is greatly appreciated.

    The Ka ‘Elele Staff

  11. danserns

    Hi Friends–

    I’m thrilled to hear that your school newspaper wants to focus on Jesus and His soon return! God will honor all your efforts in that direction.

    Unfortunately I don’t own the rights to this picture; I have simply purchased the permission to use it for evangelism from Advent Digital Media, a division of It Is Written (in Simi Valley, CA). You might want to check with them.

    God bless you in your desire to let the world know about Jesus and His soon return!

    Dan Serns

    P.S. My mother taught 7th or 8th grade at Hawaiian Mission Academy in the late 1950s!

    I am just hearing how some SDA churches are teaching Jesuit Spiritual Formation. I am shocked and so disappointed. I can’t believe it, but I do because I’ve now seen it all over the internet.

    What is going on in our church today? Have the Jesuits so infiltrated our church that unaware SDAs are being lured into this false teaching?

    Jesuit Spiritual Formation, led by Spiritual Directors, the 450 year old office of Jesuit Father Confessors in fastening the soul under the bondange of absolute obedience to hierarchy, is the removal of man from direct dependence upon God, and the opening of the hidden self to man, to the Spiritual Director, the new Father Confessor, who takes over the guidance of the soul in refastening the chains of absolute control by ecclesiastical hierarchies, which themselves, in turn, are under the control of Rome as subsidiary “Separated Brethren”.


  13. danserns

    Hi Cathy–

    I have seen an email or two that makes the claims you mention.

    While some of the information presented does cause concern to those of us who believe that Jesus is the only Mediator between God and mankind (1 Timothy 2:5) there is lots of misinformation and many giant leaps of logic that consciencious followers of Christ must avoid.

    I encourage you to “not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven” (Matthew 23:9). At the same time I encourage you to “Test all things; hold fast what is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21) before passing along unfounded rumors.

    Blessings to you in your daily walk with Jesus and fellowship with other believers who are preparing for His return.

  14. Jacob chemjor

    Hi all. Am a sinner and need the forgiving power of God. I want to leave all for Jesus to set me free. I desired to go to church and repent but i find it hard. Help me before Jesus comes.

  15. danserns

    Hi Jacob–

    God bless you! The good news is that you can repent right where you are right now because Jesus is with you right now. You don’t have to go to church to repent. Read 1 John 1:9 and 1 John 2:1 and talk to Jesus right now as your Savior and a Friend of Sinners. He will forgive you and give you peace.

    Next commit to meeting with Jesus every day through Bible study and prayer and He will guide you into all truth. Psalm 119:105 and Psalm 119:11.

    As you learn truth you will discover a church that is teaching all truth and that will help you grow in your relationship with Jesus and preparation for His return. John 7:17 and John 16:12-14.

    In your journey I can recommend churches that will help you walk in the truth with Jesus. You can find a church near you by checking out http://www.eadventist.net for North America or http://www.adventist.org/world_church/world_divisions/index.html.en for the world. Revelation 14:12 and Revelation 12:17

    We’ll be praying for you.

    Hello. I am in AK and some people are saying here that NPUC is going to be doing a Share Him type program in Santiago, Chile, March 2009. I don’t see anything on this site so I’m wondering if it’s true and what the dates might be. Any info would be helpful. Thanks.

  21. Kathy Nixon

    1) Are there any study guides to accompany the Revelation Now series that starts this weekend? Anything to download?
    2) Can I possibly talk to the person responsible for the 2nd Coming picture on your home page? Any chance of receiving a hi-resolution digital photo of it? I need a 4×4 ft (at least) picture for a background for our fair booth this summer. Thanks, Kathy

  22. Sean Facchinello

    Dear Dan,

    I am getting married June 7, 2008 to a lady from Washington state, named Dushy.

    Our wedding is in Pensacola, FL. And then we will have a reception in the Olympia, WA area the same month. You are invited. God bless you.

  23. Yonas Buraka

    We are the Oromo seventh day Adventists in Portland and we have been looking for a place of worship.90% of our attendee are minimum wage or less earner and we need help to continue worshiping and raise our children in the house of the Lord and we need Ideas, supports, and information how to go about to have worship place.
    Thank you and May God bless you in advance for supporting.

    • Hello all, I am requesting advice. My little brother and I are working on new church in western Ethiopia Billa town where there was no Adventist. The closest SDA church is in Dongorro about fifteen miles. Local people there have no much of means of transportation. The church has been operational for over a year now. We plan to start KG school for the orphan and the poorest kids. Anyone has this experience and would share?
      be blessed

  24. danserns

    Dear Yonas–

    Thank you for your commitment to God.

    I suggest you read all the church planting entries on this blog for ideas.

    Also you should stay in communication with your Oregon Conference of Seventh-day Adventist leaders for counsel and guidance.

    Sometimes it is very helpful as well to see if one of the area churches will take you under their wing and provide a place to meet and some pastoral care and children’s miinistry supplies.

    May God bless you and each member of your congregation as you gather people out of the world into this wonderful Adventist movement.

  26. Kathy Nixon

    CAN YOU PLEASE ADVISE ME? I need to print a poster-size picture of Jesus’ second coming for a backdrop in our County Fair booth in August. I’d love to be able to use the one on this page. Whom would I contact for this arrangement? WE NEED TO MAKE THIS DECISION SOON! Thanks, Kathy Nixon, Port Angeles SDA Church Outreach Coordinator. 360-452-6309

  27. Marella

    I’ll need to do some research to find out where we got that picture. I do know thatfor you to use it, it would need to be purchased. We do have graphics available to use for evangelism that are free of charge. If you would like to use those graphics instead, let me know and I will send you a copy of them.

  28. Kathy,
    You might try SermonView, an organization in Vancouver, Wash. that offers preaching graphics and evangelism printing. They have several 2nd coming images that they could print for you.

  29. Marella

    I haven’t been able to find where this specific picture came from, however, there a very similar graphic available from Oxygen. You might like it. You can find it at:

  30. Jacob

    Hi Dan.
    I was lured by a friend who gave me some money a month ago and later told me that he wished to share with me some top secrets. He then took my email address afterwhich i received an email from him telling me to accept everything he gives me and be satanism meetup member. Am so worried. I prayed but day after day now i cant keep it to myself. Please help me. What do i do?

  31. Marella

    Dear Jacob,

    Thank you for the comment you posted on our blog. I would like to encourage you with the thought that we have nothing to fear because Jesus has defeated the works of satan.

    Please read the following paragraph including looking up the Bible verses. Then go to your nearest Seventh-day Adventist Church and tell the pastor or church leader your situation. They will be able to help you.

    Growing in Christ:
    By His death on the cross Jesus triumphed over the forces of evil. He who subjugated the demonic spirits during His earthly ministry has broken their power and made certain their ultimate doom. Jesus’ victory gives us victory over the evil forces that still seek to control us, as we walk with Him in peace, joy, and assurance of His love. Now the Holy Spirit dwells within us and empowers us. Continually committed to Jesus as our Saviour and Lord, we are set free from the burden of our past deeds. No longer do we live in the darkness, fear of evil powers, ignorance, and meaninglessness of our former way of life. In this new freedom in Jesus, we are called to grow into the likeness of His character, communing with Him daily in prayer, feeding on His Word, meditating on it and on His providence, singing His praises, gathering together for worship, and participating in the mission of the Church. As we give ourselves in loving service to those around us and in witnessing to His salvation, His constant presence with us through the Spirit transforms every moment and every task into a spiritual experience. (Ps 1:1, 2; 23:4; 77:11, 12; Col 1:13, 14; 2:6, 14, 15; Luke 10:17-20; Eph 5:19, 20; 6:12-18; 1 Thess 5:23; 2 Peter 2:9; 3:18; 2 Cor. 3:17, 18; Phil 3:7-14; 1 Thess 5:16-18; Matt 20:25-28; John 20:21; Gal 5:22-25; Rom 8:38, 39; 1 John 4:4; Heb 10:25.)

  36. Hi Dan,
    I have been getting on well in faith but one thing i’ve ever tried but could not manage is giving tithes. I told you my background information some months ago as you requested. Now, i’ve desired to give my tithes but i have never made it. Surely what can i do. I feel really guilt for not doing so. Jacob

  37. Marella

    Dear Jacob, God has put it in your heart to obey Him in returning tithes as the Bible commands. In Malachi 3:8-12 God will help if you take the first step. I encourage you the next time you’re paid to put 10% of the money in an envelope and mark it “God’s tithe” and turn it into God’s church to be used for paying God’s workers around the world. God has promised that the other 90% will go farther. He says “test Him”. When you do He has promised to open the windows of heaven. God bless you as you move forward with faith in God and His word.

        Dear Brothers and sisters in Yahshua Messiah.
        Sabbath Greetings to you your family in the blessed name of Yahshua Messiah.

        I immense pleasure to introduce myself as an Elder, teaching the sacred truth for the last 8 years. By the grace of our almighty YAHWEH I built 2 assemblies in remote and slam areas. Our assemblies believers we extremely poor and few. Hence we have not funds to uplift our Yahweh’s work. I have been maintaining a destitute children home and providing food clothing and education during Tsunami some of the fishermen believers drowned in the killer wave Tsunami. We moved with compassion towards them and admitted them into our home. We are keeping Sabbath in midst of orthodox Hindu idol worshipers and Sunday worshipers. We condemn their false deities and pagan worship.
        We can teach the importance of Yahweh’s covenant law. The creator of the universe wants to enter into covenant relationship with the in habitations of earth. Our Sabbath service starts from Friday sunset at 6.00 P.M. and finishes Saturday sunset at 6.00 P.M.
        We believe in only ELOHIM (GEN 1:1) ours in the oneness group. We believe Baptism in the name of YAHSUA Messiah (with full immersion) ACTS 2:38, ROM 6:3, GAL 3:27. We believe in His sacred name according to ACTS 9:4-6 JOHN 19:19,12, EXO 1:19,we believe in His Holy calendar and His appointed Holy days, New moon LEV 23 Chap. ACTS 18:21, ISAIHA 29:1, COL 2:16, We worship on His Seventh Day Sabbath (Saturday) MARK 1:21, LUKE 4:16, JOHN 9:14, ACTS 9:20, 14:1, 18:4, 19:8.
        We observe all the Biblical feasts and appointed Holy days which are Passover (Messiah’s death) Feast of unleavened Bread, Feasts of weeks / Pentecost Feast of Trumpet, Day of Atonement and Feast of Tabernacles.
        We also teach the importance of righteous life and spirit of YAHWEH’S sublime Truth, we seek our heavenly fathers to help us pray from our hearts in spirit and in Truth.
        Dear Beloved Brothers and Sisters I need your sabbath fellowship and encouragement. Please encourage us to spread of the great Truth to many distant places. If you want to share the love of our father YAHWEH with us please come down to India to discern all our Sacred Truth Services. Due to lack of funds your assemblies and extend your kind co-operation in order to praise YAHWEH.we will need to build 2 sabbath buildings.If YAHWEH inspires please send YAHWEH charity through on line Bank transfer account number.
        Please pray for all of us, our Elders and assemblies.
        Here we are all constantly praying for you, your blessed family, your staff, your Elders and your Assemblies.
        Prayerfully waiting for your favorable reply.
        May YAHWEH bless you all.

        Although we are so happy that ELDER.M.SRIKANTH is doing his part to spread the good news in India, I must caution anyone who wishes to send funds. The only way we can assure that any funds sent anywhere in the world are being used the way they are supposed to be is by sending them through a local Seventh-day Adventist Conference. Thank you and God bless.
