MAKANA CHURCH ADMINISTRATION
I’m indeed honoured and humble to greet every one of you in the name of our LORD and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Makana Seventh – day Adventist is an Organised Church in the National Capital District, Port Moresby under Central Papua Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist. Makana has eight branches or a company churches. Four of the branch churches are located in the urban part of Port Moresby. They are Bomana War Cemetery, Evedahana, Eastern Farea and Kanudi. The other four branch churches are located along the Hiritano Highway, the rural part of Port Moresby, and they are Wabi, Besea, Kerea and Vame including the new work area Berere.
The church have 579 baptised members (church membership), the Sabbath School members of 1305, and the total membership is 1721.
The aim of Makana Seventh-day Adventist Church is to guide, nature and lead Gods people into an active, loving, sacrificing, productive, and saving relationship with Christ Jesus and therefore plays a vital role through community service, worship, discipleship and stewardship (in reach and outreach activities). The church then advises people to be morally fit in thismalpractice world through the Word of God. This is based upon the Three Angels Messages of Revelation 14:6-12. And the eschatological message must reach the unreached before the second coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
The Church visioned that, People knowing, experiencing, and sharing the Divine grace of our Lord God.
The church must grow spiritually, intellectually, infrastructural, and financially to fit and meet the organised sta. These are the strategic intents. Out of these objective intents and objective outcomes.
The church has these two very important meetings called Church Board and Church Business. Church Board meeting is comprised of all Department leaders of the church and Church Business meeting is comprise of all church members whose names are on the church roll. These are the two organised meetings which control, leads, plans, and organise the running of the church and for most coordination of the lives of all the members in the Church. In addition we have other committees like, project committee, worship committee, and evangelism committee also include all church counsels.
The primary purpose of the church is to fulfil the desire of God for all the lost humanity to be saved. That is why “The Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.” Luke 19:10. Also to preach the eschatological warning message to the people so that they may be aware of the difficulties and crises that existsin this world. Further, to facilitate the members of the church with the message and the supportive to His message.
The people must be self-supportive through teaching them stewardship and making sure people see God as the owner of the material possessions and themselves as the manager for the great success.
Finally, God commanded us and said in Matthew 28: 18 -20; “Go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age. Amen.
Wish you all God’s blessings.
