AVANSDA being part of PARL at the local level is dedicated in working to help the the decision-makers and thought-leaders of society understand who Adventists are, and how we contribute to the quality of life within the community.
Another very important part of PARL's work is in promoting religious liberty for all people, no matter what they believe. From the beginning of our world church's history, we have worked to promote this as a fundamental, God-given human right. Related to this is PARL's work in assisting church members who are discriminated against or persecuted for their beliefs.
We also want to keep church members informed and we invite them to become partners with PARL in raising the profile of the Adventist Church. The third Sabbath of every January is named "Religious Liberty Sabbath" and we invite church members to take time to remember the work of PARL and the importance of protecting and promoting our most precious freedom--religious liberty.
Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.
