Seventh-day Adventists believe that social action is a way to show practical religion in the community. Also understand that the Holy Bible teaches that social work is a complement to the transformation of life, an activity that Jesus taught people to develop. For this reason, Adventists work through two main fronts: the Adventist Solidarity Action (ASA) and the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA).
The Adventist Solidarity Action (ASA) develops solidarity initiatives and social assistance services with the local church, in an organized manner; These activities are carried out through the leaders and members in favor of their peers. This help is based on Biblical principles and the guidelines of Ellen White’s writings. ASA is a branch of the missionary activities of the Church.
