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.
As Seventh-Day Adventists, we believe that the Bible and Bible alone is the creed of our faith. As such, everything we believe in can be found within its inspired pages.
Our name alone, Seventh-Day Adventist, testifies of our belief in the authority of the Word of God. We believe that God calls us to keep the Sabbath, the seventh day of the week, holy. It is the time when we, His church, are to commune with Him and to remember that He is our Creator, our Redeemer, and our Sanctifier (Gen. 2:1-3; Exod. 20:8-11; Deut. 5:14, 15; Ezek. 20:12). We also believe that God will one day send His Son, Jesus Christ (Hos. 11:1; Matt.2:15; Lk. 3:22), back to the Earth to save those who trust in Him as their Savior. (Jn. 14:1-3;1 Thess. 4:13-18). This amazing event is called the Second Advent, or Second Coming.
The Word of God gives us guidance on the great controversy between good and evil and how He wants us to live a holy life, set apart from the things that bring unhappiness to the world. To learn about these Bible truths, click below!
