The mission of the Seventh-day Adventist church is based on fundamental biblical absolutes that are not contingent on cultural, ideological or geographic context. On the converse the postmodern and secular worldview thrive on the relativity of truth and values. Adventism cannot be reclusive nor exclusive to the postmodern and secular mindset due to the incessant influence they exert on societal values and moorings. Society today is virtually controlled in every sphere by the postmodern agenda. While the mission of Adventism mandates that it reaches every ideological mindset, at the same time it is incumbent on Adventism to remain biblically adept and contextually relevant without being syncretistic. The country of Grenada known for its relative conservative nature can provide insights as to the pervasiveness of the postmodern outlook. This work proposes that Adventism must embrace the challenge of the postmodern and secular mindset, discretely engaging some of the negotiable elements within postmodernism, while concomitantly ensuring that biblical truths remain uncompromised
