The mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church , as articulated in the church's mission statement, is to proclaim to all people the everlasting gospel in the context of the Three Angels' messages of Revelation 14:6-12. The commission of Jesus Christ compels us to lead others to accept Jesus as their personal savior and to unite with His church, and nurture them in preparation for His soon return. That's at the heart of the church's mission and is accomplished through preaching, teaching and healing ministries.
From its inception, the church was intentional to articulate and practice its mission by communicating the message of the gospel throughout the world. The term “global mission” is synonymous with reaching the peoples of the world no matter where they are, and in the context of their lives. Adventists are a global community. Adventists are committed to making education accessible everywhere. At the heart of the Adventist education system is the conviction that every individual should have the opportunity to study and grow.
Adventists also believe that Christian life includes both spiritual and physical health, thus you will find Seventh-day Adventists involved in promotion of health and wholeness. Recognized as a growing church, Seventh-day Adventists are involved in providing betterment for all human beings and especially reaching out to provide practical help to those affected by disaster or those requiring development assistance.
“Do unto others . . .” is a phrase known to Seventh-day Adventists. In order to accomplish the mission goals of the Christian church, Adventists are promoters of human freedom and responsibility, especially emphasizing freedom of religion for all peoples.

The King's Chapel SDA Church is located in eastern Kingston and serves as a lighthouse and a place of refuge for members of the surrounding communities and members seeking after the heavenly kingdom. The congregation is diverse in both age and culture but one thing that is common among its worshipers is the warmth and love awaiting those who come through our doors. Currently the flock is being lead by Pastor Paul Bailey.
On March 9, 1985 the King's Chapel Seventh-day Adventist Church was born out of the famous Jerry Lee '85 crusade held on the eastern grounds of the Bellevue Hospital. The newly baptised members under the divine leadership of Pastor Claude Brown and intern Pastor O. Phillips occupied the building at 57 Windward Road in east Kingston which once housed the King's Theater and with much work, prayer and dedication transformed it into the King's Chapel SDA Church which still stands today.
