We Believe…
Jesus Christ, fully God and fully man, provides salvation and eternal life now. Galatians 2:20; Hebrews 12:1,2; Philippians 2:5-8; I John 5:11-13. There is one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. II Corinthians 13:14; I Peter 1:2. The Bible is the only rule of faith and practice. II Timothy 2:15; II Peter 1:19-21. The Ten Commandments reveal God's will, sin, and reminds all their need of a savior. Genesis 3:17-19; Romans 5:12-15; Galatians 3:22-24. The Seventh-day Sabbath, is a binding part of God’s unchanging and perpetual law, and has been made for our holistic benefit. Exodus 20:8-11; Deutoronomy 5:12-15; Hebrews 4:9-11. One who is justified by faith, God declares righteous on the ground of Jesus Christ's substitutionary life and death. Romans 4:3-5; Galatians 3:7-11. The fruit of the Gospel includes the new birth and progressive sanctification until glorification at the day of Jesus Christ. John 3:1-7; Acts 2:37, 38; Romans 6:1-6. God writes His law upon the hearts and minds of believers in Jesus by His Holy Spirit. James 2:10-12; Hebrews 8:7-10; 2 Corinthinians 3:3. One becomes a member of Jesus’ body, the Church, by faith. I Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 2:13. Participation in Jesus’ body includes baptism, worship, the Lord's Supper and spiritual gifts. Ephesians 4:8,11; Matthew 28:18-20; I Corinthians 11:23-29; Hebrews 10:22-25. The Christian life is a personal relationship with Christ by committing one's self, time, talents, possessions including (tithe and offerings), health, and influence to God. Malachi 3:8-12; Matthew 23:23; I Corinthians 3:16, 17; Deuteronomy 14:3-20. The quality of life in this present world is enhacned by following the principles of health – proper Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunlight, Temperance, fresh Air, Rest, and Trust in God. 1 Corinthinans 6:19-20; 1 Thessalonians 5:23. Believers do not personally appear in judgment because Jesus, the Mediator, presents them as righteous in Himself. Romans 8:1-4; I John 2:1, 2. Jesus’ literal, personal, visible, and imminent second coming is our blessed hope for transitioning from a deterioirating world condition to the pristine purity of God’s glorious earth made new. Titus 2:13, John 14:1-3. The dead remain in their grave, unconscious to anything under the sun, until either the resurection of life or condemnation. Ecclesiates 9:5,6; John 5:28,29; Revelations 20:10. Believers receive immortality at Christ's return and the wicked eternal death at the Millenniums end as the new earth becomes the saint's possession forever. John 14:1-3; Daniel 7:18,22,27; Psalms 37:10, 11, 29: I Thessalonians 4:16, 17; 1. Seventh-day Adventists are called to announce Christ's return to the world by proclaiming the Gospel. Matthew 24:14; Acts 1:8; Revelations 10:8-11, 14:6-11.
