What does the name Seventh-day Adventist means?
Our name says a lot about what we believe.
Seventh-day: We are Christians who believe in keeping the seventh-day Sabbath (Saturday) holy as instructed by God and modeled by Jesus Christ. (Exodus 20:8-11 NIV)
Adventists: We eagerly await Jesus Christ’s second advent (coming) to earth, when Jesus will take those who love and believe in Him to heaven. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 NIV)
“We are a vibrant christian community! Also a culturally diverse body of disciples from many “nations, kindred, tongue, and people (Rev 14:6)” but are one family in Christ our Lord. There are a nice distribution of age groups with many families with children, and teenagers.
A Worldwide Religious Community
We are connected to a body of believers
The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a worldwide religious community dedicated to sharing the good news of salvation while living according to Christ’s example of loving service. We do this in part through our network of laypeople, missionaries, hospitals, disaster relief agencies, educational system, and churches. Matthew 28:19
The Bible provides the foundation for our beliefs. Our belief system is meant to directly influence our daily choices and the way we live our lives. “Currently, Adventists hold 28 fundamental beliefs that can be organized into six categories—the doctrines of God, man, salvation, the church, the Christian life and last day events.
In each teaching, God is the architect, who in wisdom, grace and infinite love, is restoring a relationship with humanity that will last for eternity.”
