About the
Seventh-day Adventist Church

The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a mainstream Protestant church with approximately 19 million members worldwide, including more than one million members in North America. The Seventh-day Adventist Church seeks to enhance quality of life for people everywhere and to let people know that Jesus is coming again soon. Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father's will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone. When He returned to heaven following the resurrection, Jesus left the Holy Spirit to serve as our Comforter and Counselor. He promised to return to earth a second time to complete His plan of salvation and take His people to heaven. Adventists are among the believers who look forward to that day. Adventists believe that God is concerned with the quality of human life, and that everything—the way we live, eat, speak, think, treat each other, and care for the world around us—is part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.

What We Believe

As a Christian church, Seventh-day Adventists are a faith community rooted in the beliefs described by the Holy Scriptures. Adventists describe these beliefs in the following ways: God’s greatest desire is for you to see a clear picture of His character. When you see Him clearly, you will find His love irresistible. For many, “seeing God clearly” requires that they see God’s face. However, how He looks is not the issue. Seeing and understanding His character is what’s most important. The more clearly we understand Him, the more we will find His love irresistible. As we begin to experience His love, our own lives will begin to make more sense. God most clearly reveals His character in three great events. The first is His creation of man and woman–and His giving them the freedom of choice. He created humans with the ability to choose to love Him or to hate Him! The death of Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, on the cross as our substitute is the second great event. In that act He paid the penalty we deserve for our hateful choices toward God and His ways. Jesus’ death guarantees forgiveness for those choices and allows us to spend eternity with Him. The third event confirms the first two and fills every heart with hope: Christ’s tomb is empty! He is alive, living to fill us with His love! Jesus’ disciple John wrote that if everyone wrote all the stories they knew about Jesus, the whole world could not contain them. Our knowledge of God helps us understand His love, character, and grace. Experiencing that love begins a lifelong adventure in growth and service. This knowledge and experience powers our mission to tell the world about His love and His offer of salvation. Scripture is a road map. The Bible is God’s voice, speaking His love personally to you today. The Bible speaks the Creator’s directions to us, like a detailed road map that clearly shows the exit ramp directly into heaven. It is also much like an owner’s manual for a life ready to be lived on the cutting edge of liberty. Sometimes His voice speaks through stories, such as those of David and Goliath, Ruth and Boaz, Naaman’s little servant girl, Christ on the cross, and fisherman Peter learning how to tend sheep. Some of these stories teach us how to handle the troubles we face each day. Others fill us with hope and peace. Each of them is like a personal letter from God to you. Portions of Scripture are direct instructions and laws from God such as the Ten Commandments, recorded in Exodus 20. These tell us more about God and His expectations for us. When people asked Jesus to summarize these commands, He focused on the way God’s love affects the way we live. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, and soul,” He said. “And love your neighbor as you love yourself.” On other pages the Bible gives God’s practical advice and encouragement through parables, lists, promises, and warnings. Amazingly, though many different writers throughout thousands of years wrote the Bible, each page describes the same God in ways we can understand and apply in our lives today. This book is always His voice talking personally to anyone who is willing to read and hear. God loves us even when we choose to reject His love. In those times He allows us to walk away into the life of our own choices. Yet He is still there, always ready to redeem us from the results of our decisions.




Our Mission

To proclaim the Everlasting Gospel of Jesus Christ; to continue His ministry, serving the world around us through the power of the Holy Spirit while awaiting our Lord’s Return.

  • childrens-story“To proclaim the Everlasting Gospel…” - We are committed to declaring the message of God’s righteousness and its timeliness as revealed by the Three Angels of Revelation 14.
  • “of Jesus Christ…” - We believe that the Good News is both from Christ and about Him. From beginning to end, we are saved by faith, which itself is His gift of grace.
  • “by continuing His ministry…” - We are called to discipleship in ALL areas of life, and we thus choose to walk in the path of servant-hood, becoming obedient unto death.
  • “serving the world around us…” -- We acknowledge that this world is ALREADY Christ’s, both by Creation and Redemption, and that God has called us individually and corporately to be care-givers of His grace.
  • “through the power of the Holy Spirit…” -- We acknowledge that it is God’s eternal presence which takes us from death to life. We submit to Him who empowers us with every heavenly gift for the enlightenment of minds and the healing of broken relationships.
  • “while awaiting our Lord’s Return.” -- Jesus is coming again! We hasten to receive and apply His promises to our lives in anticipation of reunion with the One whose grace saves us.
