73:5.1 At the center of the Edenic peninsula was the exquisite stone temple of the Universal Father, the sacred shrine of the Garden. To the north the administrative headquarters was established; to the south were built the homes for the workers and their families; to the west was provided the allotment of ground for the proposed schools of the educational system of the expected Son, while in the "east of Eden" were built the domiciles intended for the promised Son and his immediate offspring. The architectural plans for Eden provided homes and abundant land for one million human beings.

  73:5.2 At the time of Adam's arrival, though the Garden was only one-fourth finished, it had thousands of miles of irrigation ditches and more than twelve thousand miles of paved paths and roads. There were a trifle over five thousand brick buildings in the various sectors, and the trees and plants were almost beyond number. Seven was the largest number of houses composing any one cluster in the park. And though the structures of the Garden were simple, they were most artistic. The roads and paths were well built, and the landscaping was exquisite.

  73:5.3 The sanitary arrangements of the Garden were far in advance of anything that had been attempted theretofore on Urantia. The drinking water of Eden was kept wholesome by the strict observance of the sanitary regulations designed to conserve its purity. During these early times much trouble came about from neglect of these rules, but Van gradually impressed upon his associates the importance of allowing nothing to fall into the water supply of the Garden.

  73:5.4 Before the later establishment of a sewage-disposal system the Edenites practiced the scrupulous burial of all waste or decomposing material. Amadon's inspectors made their rounds each day in search for possible causes of sickness. Urantians did not again awaken to the importance of the prevention of human diseases until the later times of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Before the disruption of the Adamic regime a covered brick-conduit disposal system had been constructed which ran beneath the walls and emptied into the river of Eden almost a mile beyond the outer or lesser wall of the Garden.

  73:5.5 By the time of Adam's arrival most of the plants of that section of the world were growing in Eden. Already had many of the fruits, cereals, and nuts been greatly improved. Many modern vegetables and cereals were first cultivated here, but scores of varieties of food plants were subsequently lost to the world.

  73:5.6 About five per cent of the Garden was under high artificial cultivation, fifteen per cent partially cultivated, the remainder being left in a more or less natural state pending the arrival of Adam, it being thought best to finish the park in accordance with his ideas.

  73:5.7 And so was the Garden of Eden made ready for the reception of the promised Adam and his consort. And this Garden would have done honor to a world under perfected administration and normal control. Adam and Eve were well pleased with the general plan of Eden, though they made many changes in the furnishings of their own personal dwelling.

  73:5.8 Although the work of embellishment was hardly finished at the time of Adam's arrival, the place was already a gem of botanic beauty; and during the early days of his sojourn in Eden the whole Garden took on new form and assumed new proportions of beauty and grandeur. Never before this time nor after has Urantia harbored such a beautiful and replete exhibition of horticulture and agriculture.

Mission Statement
It is the Mission of David Campus to propagate the truth postulates of Epochal Revelations past, present and future throughout the world and to all the races and generations of mankind.


To establish on Urantia the "Institute of Ambassador Mentoring" a Melchizedek School of Higher Learning in support of the spiritual purpose and plans of the Planetary Prince of Urantia and all those who enter into this work.

In support of this world mission we will propagate and teach the language of the fifth epochal revelation until it is spoken by every citizen on Urantia in order to facilitate the universal ideal of divine friendship and fraternal fellowship through a universally spoken world language. No evolutionary world can hope to progress beyond the first stage of settledness in light until it has achieved one language, one religion, and one philosophy. .

To foster the divine destinies brought to this world by the indwelling spirit monitors present in the minds of men and women. Providing educational assistance to the noble efforts of the indwelling spirit in the growth of character necessary to achieve the ideal life and model career of the individual as a never ending unfolding of the spirit of truth in partnership with the indwelling spirit monitor in the minds of man throughout all present and future generations.


  • 1./ To build Student Modules at David Campus for the study of the truth postulates of Epochal Revelation for a full sabbatical year undertaken ideally after High School is completed and before our youth have chosen a life career path.


  • 2./    To build a supporting Community of fellow workers to plan, build and maintain the facilities at David Campus on one hundred acres of land and develop the mission of the school to serve throughout all present and future generations of the world.


  • 3./     To locate and train teachers of the Revelation who have for many years received, studied and fostered the truth postulates of the current fifth Epochal Revelation of God to mankind and from these studies understand the previous and future possibilities of all such Divine Visitations and manifestations on the whirling planets of space.


  • 4./     To teach, support and send teachers of the fifth epochal revelation out into every nation and to every race of mankind to bring the good news of the enlightening truths of a new revelation of divine truth now present on earth to the people of Urantia living in this day and generation until the whole world has been informed of these divine visitations and revelations.


  • 5./     To mirror and restore in all of our communities worldwide the idealistic beauty of life on Urantia as it was established and demonstrated in the second epochal revelation of God to mankind 37,000 years ago; to rebuild and restore the ideals of the garden communities as a material enhancement and cultural demonstration of the inner life of its inhabitants.


  • 37:3.4 Do you grasp the significance of the fact that your lowly and confused planet has become a divisional headquarters for the universe administration and direction of certain archangel activities having to do with the Paradise ascension scheme? This undoubtedly presages the future concentration of other ascendant activities on the bestowal world of Michael and lends a tremendous and solemn import to the Master's personal promise, "I will come again."
