WHAT WE BELIEVE

Connect (or "Missional") Groups are an essential part of our church, as they provide a place where deeper fellowship and better support for one another can take place. Considering that the early church worshipped in large settings - in the synagogues - as well as in homes, we unite together similarly in order to be in deeper fellowship with God and one another. God has reconciled us not only to Himself but also to each other. This "each other" is called His Church.

What Seventh-day 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 wants you to know Him

    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 directs how we live

    Scripture is a road map. The Bible is God's voice, speaking His love personally to you today. 

  • Jesus never changes

    Jesus is the one who never changes in a universe that always does. Jesus is Creator, Sustainer, Savior, Friend, God's Son, and God Himself! 

  • WHAT GOD WANTS FOR YOU

    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.

  • GOD LOVES YOU

    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.

  • GOD'S LOVE IS ABOUT YOU. PERSONALLY.

    God made you and has a very special plan for your life. It's a plan that will fill you with hope, love, peace, and activity. In fact, when Christ paid the penalty for sin on the cross, that gave Him the right to claim you as His own. As a result, you can experience His love and priceless salvation freely and fully without limit.
