as a christian church, seventh-day adventists are a faith community rooted in the beliefs described by the holy scriptures. adventists describe these beliefs in the following ways:

God wants you to know Him

scripture directs how we live

Jesus never changes

what God wants for you

God loves you

you are in God's family

in the heart of God is a place you can experience as home. God loves you, and wants to spend time with you personally, one on one, as two close friends.

 

because you and God are friends, you will spend time together as friends do. each morning you'll share a hello and a hug and discuss how you can face the day's events together. throughout the day you'll talk with Him about how you feel. you'll laugh with Him at funny things and ache with Him over sadness and hurts. it's pleasant being God's friend, able to snuggle comfortably into the safety of your relationship. you can always trust Him to treat you well, because He loves you.

 

the seventh day (saturday) is an extra-special part of the relationship. the bible, from genesis through revelation, describes the seventh day as the one day God has set aside for focused fellowship with His people. God has named that day "sabbath" and asked us to spend it with Him. "remember the sabbath day," He says, "to keep it holy." the sabbath is a whole day to deepen our friendship with the Creator of the universe! a day when we're together, Jesus with us and us with Jesus.

 

there's another great truth about friendship with God. it doesn't end in a cemetery, for God is planning a homecoming better than anything we can dream. a homecoming filled with angels, trumpets, Jesus, and resurrections! He's promised to being His followers, those who have accepted the offer of His life-changing love, from this earth to His home, a place He calls heaven. a place where our friendship can go on growing forever, endlessly, joyfully!
