SERVING THE PEOPLE
Today, Adventist humanitarian work reaches into more than 120 countries and serves tens of millions of people every year. This priority springs from a deeply held belief in service. Throughout the Old Testament, God made provision for the poor and less fortunate living in Israel. In the New Testament, the writings of the apostle Paul show a Christian church that gave willingly and generously to support the needy among them.
Deuteronomy 15:1-11 2 Corinthians 8:8-15
At Ephesus we're striving to meet the needs of the meek as well as expanding the knowledge of God's to others by being God's witnesses. Serving the people consist of helping people of all ages while God's uses us to spread different messages his people need to hear. Imagine seeing a person struggling to take care of their personal necessities and then out of no where they're not struggling anymore and that person touches another person heart by demonstrating what God was done for them. Wow! That's what serving the people is all about and our community service departments takes pride in giving back all it can.

Seventh-day Adventist beliefs are meant to permeate your whole life. Growing out of scriptures that paint a compelling portrait of God, you are invited to explore, experience and know the One who desires to make us whole.
We accept the Bible as the only source of our beliefs. We consider our movement to be the result of the Protestant conviction Sola Scriptura; the Bible as the only standard of faith and practice for Christians.
We currently hold 28 fundamental beliefs that can be 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.
