To reach Western Washington with the distinctive, Christ-centered Seventh-day Adventist message of hope and wholeness, encouraging all to become fully devoted disciples of Jesus.
What We Believe
Seventh-day Adventists believe:
- In one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that the Bible is God’s inspired Word for us today.
- That by accepting Jesus Christ as one’s personal Savior, a new heart is given the believer, thus leading to a Christ-centered life.
- In a recent, six-day creation that also instituted the Sabbath as a sign between God and His people.
- The Ten Commandments further describe God’s highest ideals for humanity’s interaction with Him and with each other.
- That we honor the marriage covenant, established by God in the Garden of Eden, to be a lifelong union between a man and a woman.
- In the stewardship of our time, talents, and possessions through the returning of tithes and the giving of offerings.
- That stewardship also includes caring for our bodies as the Temple of The Holy Spirit by abstaining from unclean foods and harmful substances such as drugs, alcohol, and tobacco.
- In the observance of baptism by immersion and celebrate communion along with foot washing as a regular reminder of Christ’s humble sacrifice for us.
- In a soon, literal return of Jesus Christ to this earth at which time He will claim all who call Him Savior and Lord.
- That in the new earth to come, God will provide a home for all the redeemed and a perfect environment for everlasting life, love, joy, and learning in His presence.
- The great controversy between Christ and Satan will be forever ended, and sin will be no more. All things will forever declare that God is love.
