About Seventh-day Adventists (SDA)
dventists believe a Trinity of three persons–the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit–make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father’s will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone.
When He returned to heaven following the resurrection, Jesus left the Holy Spirit to serve as our Comforter and Counselor. He promised to return to earth a second time to complete His plan of salvation and take His people to heaven. Adventists are among the believers who look forward to that day.
Adventists believe that God is concerned with the quality of human life, and that everything–the way we live, eat, speak, think, treat each other, and care for the world around us–is a part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.
Fundamental Beliefs of the SDA Church
Seventh-day Adventist Christians believe that God is love. We believe that Jesus is the perfect reflection of His character and the guarantee that God is not a distant and impersonal being. We believe, in the gift of Jesus, that God has broken into history in a unique and precious way to save the world from sin. We believe that Jesus is returning soon to rescue all His children who love him and desire to be with Him. Since we desire nothing more than to be in His presence, we keep the Seventh-day Sabbath as a sign and seal of God’s commitment at creation to save and secure His people as His children for all time.
