Extend the ministry of Christ to our community with hope and wholeness.

Our Vision - “Build 7”
We will be a Church on God’s mission in Apopka, with Apopka, and for Apopka, seven days-a-week.

Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed. And Simon and those who were with Him searched for Him. When they found Him, they said to Him, “Everyone is looking for You.”

But He said to them, “Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because for this purpose I have come forth.”

- Mark 1:35-38

You can also find the link to our worship service livestream on our WEBSITE.
Giving - We believe God asks His followers to give a tithe (10% of our income) to fund the world-wide Gospel ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church (see Numbers 18:21-24; Malachi 3:10;). We are also invited to give offerings as the Holy Spirit impresses us to give to support the local mission of the Apopka Seventh-day Adventist Church and other special projects in the state of Florida and beyond (see 2 Corinthians 9:6-7). Today's Featured Offering is for Florida Advance. Please remember our Local Church Budget and our Building Fund, which will go toward our mortgage payments as part of our Local Church Budget once we receive our "Certificate of Occupancy" for our expanded facility. You can give a physical offering using a tithe envelope and deposit it in the box in the lobby or give it online at See our generosity update below...
