RevelationofHope-Beaumont1Seventh-day Adventists host evangelistic series all across America

Seventh-day Adventist Churches are hosting evangelistic series of meetings entitled “Revelation of Hope” at many locations across North America. Church-employed conference evangelists conduct the meetings which are billed as presenting “biblical answers to today’s problems prophesied in the Scriptures.”

Following an established Adventist style of advertising, the "Revelation of Hope" meetings are usually not announced as being sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, nor does the initial advertising state that the meeting venue is a Seventh-day Adventist Church. The website advertising the meetings,, calls the venue the “Seminar Center” and lists the address of an Adventist church.

beaumontsign1Advertising copy appeals to the underlying fear and curiosity people feel as they contemplate world events and the heightened level of concern over terrorism, security, and political change. The website stated the titles of the first three meetings to be held and it stated three more “continuing topics”. It did not state the total length of the series, which runs about six weeks or 21 meetings, nor does it reveal that the goals of these meetings are to present Seventh-day Adventist doctrine and to convince attendees to become Adventists in order to obey the Bible and properly honor God.

Advertising is sometimes conducted by means of a blimp bearing the URL of the Revelation of Hope website. The meetings are also advertised with a large flyer that is mailed to every home in the area. The cover features pictures designed to elicit fear. No where does it mention that the sponsoring church is Seventh-day Adventist.

The goal of Adventist evangelistic “seminars” is to proselytize and baptize new members into the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The 2004 Revelation of Hope series in San Bernardino, a large city in Southern California, ended with a mass baptism of 142 people held at the Seventh-day Adventist Loma Linda University Drayson Center swimming pool.
