What We Believe

Seventh-day Adventists believe:

  • In one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that the Bible is God’s inspired Word for us today.
  • That by accepting Jesus Christ as one’s personal Savior, a new heart is given the believer, thus leading to a Christ-centered life.
  • In a recent, six-day creation that also instituted the Sabbath as a sign between God and His people.
  • The Ten Commandments further describe God’s highest ideals for humanity’s interaction with Him and with each other.
  • That we honor the marriage covenant, established by God in the Garden of Eden, to be a lifelong union between a man and a woman.
  • In the stewardship of our time, talents, and possessions through the returning of tithes and the giving of offerings.
  • That stewardship also includes caring for our bodies as the Temple of The Holy Spirit by abstaining from unclean foods and harmful substances such as drugs, alcohol, and tobacco.
  • In the observance of baptism by immersion and celebrate communion along with foot washing as a regular reminder of Christ’s humble sacrifice for us.
  • In a soon, literal return of Jesus Christ to this earth at which time He will claim all who call Him Savior and Lord.
  • That in the new earth to come, God will provide a home for all the redeemed and a perfect environment for everlasting life, love, joy, and learning in His presence.
  • The great controversy between Christ and Satan will be forever ended, and sin will be no more. All things will forever declare that God is love.
