Who are we?
The Seventh-day Adventist Church has approximately 19 million members worldwide, including more than one million in North America. Our mission for over 150 years has been to remind others that this world will not last forever. Jesus is coming soon!
We share many beliefs with other Christians. We believe in God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Bible gives an accurate picture of how suffering and injustice came about. We believe that Jesus came to put an end to all of that. All we have to do is trust him and follow in his footsteps. That includes the way we live, eat, speak, think, treat each other, and care for the world around us.
The "Seventh-day" part of our name comes from the Ten Commandments. In them, God reminds us that he set apart a day each week for rest. We treasure that gift. It creates space in our busy lives for friendship and family while lifting our hearts and minds above the busyness of life to focus on the Eternal.
