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.

TESTIFY THE TRUTH
We encourage everyone to share what the Lord has done for you and witness what he will do for you if you let him. In order to complete the Lord's mission we must give our all by being bigger witnesses of God and his plan for us. Here are some personal testimonies from some of our church officers.
"He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that
God gave of his Son."
1 John 5:10
Church Clerk: Rosalind Tillman
"It's always a blessing to serve the Lord. Being an officer of the church has helped me develop a loving relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ who created heaven and earth."
Personal Ministry Leader: Carlene Bradley
"I want to testify of the goodness of the Lord in my life and answering prayers. I have had to learn to give my burdens to the Lord and leave them there. Worrying about situations that you can't control or change anyway has helped me to walk more by faith. This has resulted in a closer relationship with him."
Prison Ministry Leader: Earnestine Shells
"Prison Ministry has been a blessing to me. The men at the prison have uplifted my faith. They are so joyful. When we come to worship with them they praise the living God and testify of his name. If they can praise Him confined, surely I can praise Him free."
"Be not therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;" 2 Timothy 1:8
"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and
they loved not their lives unto
the death." Revelation 12:11
