Our Beliefs

 

As Seventh-Day Adventists, we believe in the Trin­ity–the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit which makes one God.  Sal­va­tion was made pos­si­ble through Jesus, the Son, when he 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 our sins and rose from the dead on the third day, vic­tory was won for every­one!

When Jesus Christ returned to heaven fol­low­ing the res­ur­rec­tion, God sent the Holy Spirit to serve as our Com­forter and Coun­selor. Jesus Christ promised to return to earth a sec­ond time to com­plete His plan of sal­va­tion and take His peo­ple to heaven. As Adven­tists, we are among the believ­ers who look for­ward to that day.

God is always concerned about us. The way we live, eat, speak, think, treat each other, and care for the world around us is all part of His plan. Our fam­i­lies, our chil­dren, our jobs, our tal­ents, our money, and our time are all impor­tant to Him.
