We Believe

Seventh-day Adventists accept the Bible as the only source of our beliefs. We believe in Jesus Christ and his love for us as expressed in his life, death, and resurrection. We also believe in the hope of a new life in Jesus and eternity with Him. Our church is part of the worldwide Seventh-day Adventist Church and over the years, our church has agreed upon key statements that summarize the principal teachings Seventh-day Adventists understand from the Bible. These statements are made collectively by a group of scholars studying and prayerfully searching the Bible with the help of the Holy Spirit.
