Seventh-Day Adventist Faith

The Seventh-day Adventist Church is one of many Christian denominations. The name comes from the observance of the seventh-day Sabbath and a belief in the second coming (advent) of Jesus. Adventists attend church on Saturday — joining together for worship, fellowship, and for Bible study. The Bible is the source of our Christian beliefs.

The Adventist Church welcomes all people to their worship services. Formal membership includes being baptized by immersion, symbolizing our union with God, the forgiveness of sins, and our desire to enter into a new life. The most important function of the church is to demonstrate the love of God and to proclaim hope for people in a troubled world. Church membership is our way of declaring that we need God and each other if life is to be meaningful. (Ezekiel 36:26; 1 John 4:7; 1 Corinthians 12:14-26)

SHCA promotes the spiritual growth of students of all Christian religions and supports your children in their individual walks with Jesus.
