In order to keeping things running smoothly at the church, we have a special group of members voted on to sever as leaders. Our leaders operate different departments within the the church, but they also answer to the board to ensure everything is handled using God's grace & guidence. The leaders are one accord.

The board is made up of all department leaders including the pastor. All major church related issues, projects and events are brought to the board for discussion. Our board members are an amazing example of how all Christians should serve God as one accord because we're all His children with everlasting extended mercy and forgiveness.

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.
