News / Events / Resources


The online event for all Adventists passionate about fulfilling God's call for LIFESTYLE centre/sanitarium work.


The Lord, through His last-day messenger Ellen G White, gave a very special and particular call for Adventist doctors and health professionals to establish sanitariums (or lifestyle centres) outside every major city. These special institutions were to use lifestyle-based natural therapies to help people heal and point them to Jesus as their healer and savior.
We are currently far from fulfilling this bold but necessary call. This event brings together Adventist health professionals, businessmen, pastors and laypeople who have a passion to see the vision of lifestyle centre work fulfilled in Canada. If this is your passion and interest, please join us!

World Church Prayer Requests
June 4, 2021

1. Please pray for believers living in regions where persecution for the faith is 
   common. Pray that these believers will stand strong for Jesus, and that their 
   witness will lead to the salvation of their persecutors. 
2. Pray for our brothers and sisters living in the city of Goma, in the Democratic 
   Republic of Congo, who have recently had to evacuate due to the active volcano. 3. Pray for protection, provision, and peace in the midst of chaos.
4. Pray for health care workers throughout the country of India who are dealing with 
   a high spike of corona virus patients. Pray for our church and believers there to 
   be protected from this disease.
5. Pray for an increased participation in the 24/7 United Prayer movement. We had 
   such rich blessings in the prayer room during General Conference online camp 
   meeting, and we pray these blessings continue to grow and multiply. - Online Prayer Room

We think the Internet has a lengthy shelf life, but our Creator is omniscient. He knows everything: past, present, and future. Our blunders that are public and the ones that are private. ... If anyone has the right to hold us eternally accountable, it’s God. And yet He assures us, “I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more” (Heb. 8:12). READ MORE of this devotional message.

What does it mean to die daily? To give of self in favour of living for Him alone? To daily submit our will to Christ? 

With God's word for our guide and Jesus as our heavenly Teacher we need not be ignorant of His requirements or of Satan's devices.... It will be no unpleasant task to be obedient to the will of God when we yield ourselves fully to be directed by His Spirit.15Testimonies for the Church 3:37
