The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a mainstream Christian movement that is world-wide. Our fellowships are diverse, multicultural and ethnically oriented.
We believe in One God in the Trinity of three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God and God.
We believe in the return of Jesus Christ to gather all those who accepts Him as Savior and Lord (deceased and alive). Adventists are among the believers who look forward to that day.
We believe that loving and serving God requires us to support the building of God's Kingdom through our witness, our giving and our serving.
We believe that God is concerned with the quality of human life and the way we live, eat, speak, think, how we treat each other, and care for the world around us—is part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.
