Seventh-day Adventist church is a Protestant Christian church that believes very strongly in the
shed blood of Jesus Christ. We believe Jesus lived, died and rose again that we might have eternal life if we accept that sacrifice that He has made for us. God loved us so much that He gave us His only begotten Son that we might have eternal life.
Because of that great love for us, we as Seventh-day Adventists have a desire to take the gospel to the whole world and let others know how they too can experience that love and have eternal life. The mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is to proclaim to all people the everlasting gospel in the context of the three Angels' messages found in Revelation 14:6-12.
Seventh-day Adventist churches literally circle the globe. Of the 232 recognized countries by the United Nations we have a presence in 209 of those countries. We have a network around the world of churches, hospitals, clinics, universities, colleges, and schools from pre-k through high school.
The Seventh-day Adventist church was officially organized in 1863 and is recognized as the fastest growing Protestant church in the world today. Having grown from 5 million members in 1985 we now exceed 17 million members (on average about 3,176 people join the church each day or more than one million people annually).
As a local church we belong to the ministerial alliance and work closely with other churches and
organizations in helping our community. We have a Community Service Center with a Thrift store next to the church at 404 Richwood Road. The thrift center funds are used to provide life style seminars such as our Coronary Health Improvement Project, Stress relief, total lifestyle management in our "CREATION" Seminar, Money Management, etc. This center works
through the Department of Human Services and other agencies in the area to provide assistance to those in need with clothing and household items.
Another ministry that we have locally is the Adventist Christian School that provides Christian education for students from kindergarten through eighth grade. The school has been operating since 1915 and is open to anyone that would like to send their children.
The school engages the students in various classroom and outdoor activities, which function as an integral part of the overall preparation of the student for a life of service for God and their community.
We want to invite each of you to come and experience for yourself our Church, School, and Community Service Center. We are open for all people and would love to have you come and worship with us. If you have further questions please feel free to contact us through the different media outlets listed above.
