Our Pastor's Devotional - October 2019

In the Atlantic Ocean, off the West African coast lie seven lumps of rock that make up the Canary Island archipelago. The way the Islands are grouped it is easy to think at one time in the past they had all been together, before a huge volcanic eruption resulted in the now seven Islands. I recently visited Faro de Sardina on Gran Canaria; this is the most north westerly point of the island. To say the area is barren would be an understatement, the volcanic rock being constantly battered by the sea and only a few crabs are to be seen scurrying from one position to another.

As I looked at the landscape it brought to mind what the state of the earth would look like during the millennium. The in the book of Revelation, the Bible says when Jesus comes the second time, ‘Every mountain and island were moved out of their places.’ In 2nd Peter we’re told, ‘But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.’

Yet all is not lost, the promise of the Jesus is found in 1Thesalonians 4:16-17, ‘For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.’ Then in the following verse we read, ‘Wherefore comfort one another with these words.’

Why can we be comforted with these words? Jesus has promised to make this earth new, there will not be any reminders of the old things, like the volcanic rock at Sardina, but everything will be new. The new earth will not get old and we’ll live there, in paradise, for eternity, with nothing to harm us or cause us sorrow. Don’t you want to be there? I know I do? All we need to do, is turn from our wickedness and believe in Jesus Christ. ‘For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.’ Ephesians 2:8-9. Give yourself to Jesus.

A welcome to visit Middlesbrough Church from Isabel.

Hello, my name is Isabel Dirahu and I go to the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Middlesbrough. I enjoy going to church because when you go you have lots of people keen to help you understand the Bible, you will find learning about God easy.

My church has lots of very different people, from across the world and different ages! There are teens, children, babies, adults and the elderly. The children in the church are a blessing, their compassion for God is endless, they sing for Him, tell stories about Him, and tell friends about Him and much more! Some children have been growing up in the church and have learnt brilliant things about our Saviour.

The teens are always up for Bible study and helping out, there are about six pre-teens and a few teens. It’s great to have an example for the kids of what they should believe in when they are older and some great singing teachers too!

The adults are a thrill to have in the church; they and the kids are like two peas in a pod! They always help when it comes to cooking, teaching and helping us to pray and read the Bible.

So I hope you will come to my church, because together with Christ we grow in faith and knowledge.


One of the fundamental beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is baptism by total immersion. This was a practise carried out by the early Christian believers in Britain but fell into disuse later. Our previous resident minister Pastor Peter Jeynes is a keen photographer and video maker. He has made a short film about an early outdoor baptistry that he found quite recently in the Pennines. To view this video requires RealPlayer, if this player is not on your computer it may be downloaded from this link.

The Middlesbrough Congregation now have their own church in Clive Road Middlesbrough. Previously we used the facilities of St. Barnabas Anglican Church. A Day of Fellowship was held there in September 2007 when five people were baptised by total immersion, the video may be viewed here.
