About Adventists

What Adventists Believe

As a Christian church, Seventh-day Adventists are a faith community rooted in the beliefs described by the Holy Scriptures. Adventists describe these beliefs in the following ways:

  • God's greatest desire is for you to see a clear picture of His character. When you see Him clearly, you will find His love irresistible.
  • Scripture is a road map. The Bible is God's voice, speaking His love personally to you today.
  • Jesus is the one who never changes in a universe that always does. Jesus is Creator, Sustainer, Saviour, Friend, God's Son, and God Himself!
  • God's vision for you is life as He lives it! God loves you, and wants to give you the highest quality of life imaginable.
  • In the heart of God is a place you can experience as home. God loves you, and wants to spend time with you personally, one on one, as two close friends.
