 In Brief . . .

Seventh-day Adventists believe


The Godhead

  • We believe there is one God: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, a unity of three co-eternal Persons

  • God is immortal, almighty, omniscient, immutable, above all, and ever present

  • God is infinite and beyond human comprehension and yet known through His self-revelation

  • God is the Creator and is worthy of worship, adoration and service throughout the universe


The Bible is The Word of God

  • We believe that both the Old and New Testaments comprise the Sacred Scriptures

  • They were given by divine inspiration through the prophets who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit

  • The Sacred Scriptures are the infallible revelation of God’s will, the knowledge necessary for salvation, our only authoritative revealer of doctrines, and the trustworthy record of God’s acts in history


The Incarnation

  • We believe that through the incarnation, Jesus, the Son of God, came into this world to live as an example before us and to provide the way of salvation

  • He took human nature upon Himself without divesting Himself of His divinity: in other words, He is fully human and fully divine

  • Although He experienced temptation as a human being, He perfectly exemplified the righteousness and love of God.

  • By His miracles He manifested God’s power and was shown to be the promised Messiah

  • He voluntarily suffered and died upon the cross for our sins, was raised from the dead, ascended into Heaven as our High Priest Who lives forever to intercede for us



  • We believe that all men are sinners and Jesus is our only Saviour from sin

  • Salvation is not the result of our good works but a gift of God’s grace, which we receive by faith

  • Salvation was completed at the cross through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ

  • The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin and leads us to repentance

  • God not only forgives our sins but also puts us right with Himself through the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ



New Birth


When we receive Christ as our personal Saviour we are born into the family of God and begin a new life in Christ

  • Through the Holy Spirit, this new, sanctified life is to grow unto full maturity

  • The “fruit of the Spirit” will become evident in the development of the Christian life

  • By His grace, the Holy Spirit empowers us to live in harmony with God’s will by overcoming the sinful nature and by reflecting His loving character


Baptism by Immersion

  • We believe in believer’s baptism unto repentance by total water immersion

  • The mode of Baptism illustrates death, burial and resurrection.

  • It is an outward expression of the inward experience of dying in Christ to the old life, being buried with Jesus and rising to a new life in Him; and it is a public confession of our faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus our Saviour

  • Baptism follows instruction from the Bible and acceptance of its teachings


The Lord’s Supper and Ordinance of Humility 

  • We practice open communion, which means anyone who accepts Jesus as their Saviour is welcome to share the emblems of the Lord’s Supper

  • The emblems are memorials of the body and blood of Jesus, and are an expression of faith in Him as our Lord and Saviour

  • In accordance with our Saviour’s command, we precede the Lord’s Supper with the Ordinance of humility, a service of foot washing to signify renewed cleansing and to express willingness to serve one another in Christ-like humility, and to unite our hearts in love


Second Coming 

  • We believe in the promise of Jesus that He will return to take us to Heaven where he is preparing a place for the redeemed

  • Even though the time of His return has not been revealed, world conditions along with the virtual fulfillment of most prophetic events indicate that it is imminent

  • His Second Advent will be the glorious climax of the gospel

  • Christ’s Second Coming will be literal, personal, visible, glorious and worldwide


Sleep of death and Resurrection

  • We believe that human beings are mortal and that death is “the wages of sin”

  • The Bible calls death a “sleep” – i.e. a state of total unconsciousness until the resurrection

  • Concerning those who have died, we believe that the redeemed will be raised to life by the Voice of Jesus in the “first resurrection” at His Second Coming and will be caught up with those who are alive to meet Jesus in the air

  • Only God is immortal but at the resurrection of the redeemed, Jesus will change them from mortal to immortal

  • At Christ’s Second Coming the living wicked will flee from His glorious presence and perish


Heaven and New Earth

  • We believe Christ’s personal return will bring an end to this sinful world

  • In accordance with His promise, we look forward to the earth made new where righteousness will be at home

  • God will restore this earth to the paradise it was before sin entered our environment and vandalized God’s perfect creation


Final destruction of the wicked

  • We believe that God is a just and merciful God Who has promised to bring a final end to all wickedness together with the unrepentant

  • 1,000 years after Christ’s Second Coming, all the unrighteous will be raised in the “second resurrection” to face the Final Judgment. They will be destroyed by fire in what the Bible calls “the second death”; following this there will be no resurrection – therefore the wicked will be no more

  • The entire universe will once again be free from all that is sinful


God’s 10 Commandments

  • We believe God’s 10 Commandments (i.e. the moral law) are a transcript of His character and are therefore as holy, immutable and eternal as God Himself

  • Through the agency of the Holy Spirit they point out sin and awaken a sense of need for a Saviour

  • They express God’s love, will, and purposes concerning human conduct and relationships; and they are binding upon all people in every age

  • Obedience to God should take priority over obedience to anyone; and it is in love and loyalty to Him that we aim to keep them by His grace. Jesus said that if we love Him, we would keep His Commandments

  • While salvation is all of grace and not of works, its fruitage is obedience to God’s Commandments

  • The obedience of faith demonstrates the power of Christ to transform lives and thereby strengthens the Christian witness


Sabbath – Creation

  • We believe God requires us to keep the Seventh-day Sabbath (Saturday) as instructed in the 4th Commandment

  • The Sabbath is a memorial of His creation because it is the day He rested from all His work of creation, He made that day sacred and blessed it

  • Joyful observance of God’s sacred time from sunset to sunset is in accord with the example and teaching of Jesus, and is a celebration of God’s creative and redemptive acts

  • The Sabbath is God’s perpetual sign of His eternal covenant between Him and His people

  • We observe the Seventh-day Sabbath because we love God and wish to honour Him as our Creator and Redeemer


Sanctity of marriage and The Christian Home


  • We believe that marriage is a sacred ordinance ordained of God as a life-long union between one man and one woman in loving companionship, and should be respected and safeguarded as such

  • The marriage union should reflect the sanctity, closeness and permanence of the loving union between Christ and His Church

  • Marriage carries important responsibilities and should therefore not be entered into lightly

  • Parents are to bring up their children, by precept and example, to love and obey the Lord


Christian Stewardship


  • We believe we are God’s stewards entrusted with time and opportunities, abilities and possessions, and the blessings of the earth and its resources

  • We acknowledge God’s ownership – recognizing Him as our gracious Benefactor – by faithful service to Him and our fellowmen, and by returning tithes and offerings for the proclamation of the gospel and the growth and support of His Church

  • We are stewards of God’s grace with responsibility towards our fellow human beings by showing the love of God in word and action, whether by the proclamation of the gospel, reaching out to the poor, needy, sick and suffering through our various ministries and by our educational, medical institutions and humanitarian aid agency

  • As Christians we have a solemn duty before God to respect the sanctity of life and the endowment of man’s freewill.

  • We are also stewards of our planet and therefore have a duty to care for the environment


Health – “Temples of the Holy Spirit”


  • We believe our bodies are “temples of the Holy Spirit” and are commanded by God to glorify Him by our lifestyle and what we eat and drink

  • For this reason we advocate a healthy diet of wholesome, natural foods; and abstain from alcohol, narcotics, tobacco, and food forbidden by God


Spiritual Gifts


  • We believe Jesus has given various gifts to each believer in the church for the furtherance of the gospel and the edifying of the church

  • The Holy Spirit distributes these gifts as He determines; and it is our responsibility as individuals, as stewards of His grace, to recognize and use the particular gifts He bestows upon us


Equality of all People – Religious Liberty


  • We recognize that God made all men equal whatever race or gender they may be, and He gave everyone a free will

  • It is our duty as earthly citizens to respect the equality of human beings butmenulogo it is also our responsibility to exercise the freedom of choice God has given us in a way that is right in His sight

  • We therefore are foremost in voicing the right of human beings to have freedom of religion according to their conscience

  • Our worldwide humanitarian work makes no distinction of nationality, colour or creed
