    Abstract:
    Adventist ethics is an evolving field that, thus far, has lacked comprehensive theoretical grounding. Publications in this academic area fall into six major categories that reflect the importance of the Bible, denominational tradition, and cultural contexts; however, meta-ethics of an Adventist kind is yet to be developed. Therefore, this article proposes a paradigm building on the emphases of the extant body of literature, and calls this paradigm missional ethics. This approach is consistent with the essential aspects of Adventist theological tradition, is already exemplified in several significant publications, and encompasses themes of moral concern that are prevalent in the denomination’s Fundamental Beliefs.
