Pioneer Health and Missions

Organizing missions around the world
to preach the everlasting gospel in light of the Three Angels Messages by
looking to the divine Son of God as the way, the truth and the life.

What We’re All About

We want to see the spirit of humility growing in brothers and sisters as they surrender all to Jesus, giving them strength and love to declare what they have seen and heard and calling others into fellowship with the Father and His Son Jesus Christ.


People coming together to worship and serve the only true God and Jesus Christ whom He hath sent.


Speakers dedicated to exalting God the Father and His Son, Christ Jesus, calling people to repentance and reformation by the grace of God.


Repeating the words of the pioneers in our work through books, tracts, articles and Sabbath school lessons.


Providing resources such as video, audio, books, tracts, social media and the web to preach the gospel to all the world.

Who We Are

A simple team of men and women who desire pure Christianity
as given to the prophets and apostles as they were moved by the spirit of Christ.
