 Temporary Housing Needed - My name is Grace Naluwagga and I


am 20 years old. I am a university student and I live in England. I was
born in an Adventist home and I regularly attend my church every
week. I will be traveling to the United States this year for a short
holiday and I am requesting church members if they would be willing
to accommodate me and a friend of mine. We will be staying in
Washington from the 11th August- 18th September and then move on
to another state. I am hope that there may be any members willing to
accommodate us for this period. Our basic requirements would
basically be space to sleep and have a bath (preferably with a family
because of safety). I will be contributing towards food and if anyone is
willing to help then please contact me on my email address at
grace_n_91@hotmail.com.

by M.S. Lowndes
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 enhanced 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 deteriorating 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
resurrection 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
Millennium’s 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.
 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.
