Hay tres realidades en las iglesias cristianas, incluyendo la Iglesia Adventista del Séptimo Día, que no podemos negar: 1. las iglesias están creciendo, 2. las iglesias están estancadas en su crecimiento, 3. las iglesias están decreciendo y finalmente muriendo.
Numerosas investigación del Grupo Barna y Gallup señalan que la mayoría de las iglesias en los Estados Unidos no están creciendo. Pero creo que a la Iglesia Adventista se le ha dado un mandato divino para crecer.

There are three realities in Christian churches—including the Seventh-day Adventist Church—that we cannot deny: Churches are growing; churches are stagnant in their growth; or churches are declining and finally dying.
Numerous research from the Barna-Group and Gallup report that most churches in the U.S. are not growing. But I believe that the Adventist Church has been given a divine mandate to grow.
New Jersey Conference’s 2020 motto is “Grow: Sharing Hope.” God gave a mandate for church growth, known as the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18–20).

Intermittent fasting is a popular trend today, but has been practiced for a long time at lifestyle centers like Wildwood (Ga.) and Uchee Pines (Ala.). N. David Emerson, M.D., says eating only breakfast and lunch and fasting for 12 or 14–15 hours a day, a form of intermittent fasting, is beneficial because it helps lower insulin levels.

October 19, 2019, marked the beginning of a very special day in the life of Elyria church members’ efforts in the Cleveland area. It was the first Sabbath worship service for the Lorain church plant meeting, where 31 people enjoyed Sabbath fellowship.
The Lorain church plant, a part of the vision for Disciple Ohio, is a result of the dedicated members of the Elyria church, pastored by Marius Marton and assisted by Disciple Ohio pastor Randy Barber.

Chesapeake Conference’s new initiative, “35 by 25,” is to plant 35 churches by the year 2025. Currently we have 50 areas in our region without a Seventh-day Adventist presence. These areas are comprised of population clusters of about 50,000 people, as well as specific counties with no Adventist church.
So why plant new churches when some of our existing churches are not yet full? The answer is simple: There are unreached people who need salvation in Jesus Christ, and church planting is one of the most effective ways to impact more people with the gospel.
