Our Beliefs

As Seventh-day Adventists, we accept the Bible as the only source of our beliefs. We consider our movement to be the result of the Protestant conviction with the Bible as the only standard of faith and practice for Christians.

Currently, Adventists hold 28 fundamental beliefs that are organized into six categories—the doctrines of God, man, salvation, the church, the Christian life and last day events. In each teaching, God is the architect, who in wisdom, grace and infinite love, is restoring a relationship with humanity that will last for eternity.
