Our basic beliefs are condensed into five primary teachings, the five “C”s:
Christ—We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and fully God and fully man (See Hebrews 2). He is our ONLY means of salvation, and it is only by His grace and His grace alone are we saved. We can do nothing to earn our salvation.
Cross—Jesus’ death and resurrection is our way to heaven. Because of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection, we can be looked upon as perfect if we accept His atoning sacrifice in our behalf.
Creation—We believe in the unerring veracity of the Bible. It is the Word of God from cover to cover. This belief includes the literal interpretation of Genesis 1—that God created the heavens and the earth in 6 literal days and rested the 7th, and that the signs of His creative work exist in the natural world even today.
Commandments—Because of our love for Jesus and thankfulness for what He has done for us, we choose to keep God’s commandments (See John 14:15). This includes the Fourth Commandment, which tells us that we must keep the Sabbath on the seventh day.
Coming Again—We believe that Jesus is coming again in the clouds of heaven. As the Bible says, we will meet him in the air (See 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
We believe in the principles of the reformation as described in its motto: Sola Scriptura, Sola Gracia, Sola Christos. We base our beliefs on the teachings of the Seventh-day Adventist Church as they adhere to the Bible and are set forth in the book Principles of Life. We believe the Bible is the guidebook through which all may find salvation and restoration and recommend it to be read slowly, prayerfully, and frequently.
