About Adventism

The Adventist church in the islands of Barbados & Dominica

Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons-the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit--make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father's will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone.

When He returned to heaven following the resurrection, Jesus left the Holy Spirit to serve as our Comforter and Counselor. He promised to return to earth a second time to complete His plan of salvation and take His people to heaven. Adventists are among the believers who look forward to that day.

Adventists believe that God is concerned with the quality of human life, and that everything--the way we live, eat, speak, think, treat each other, and care for the world around us--is a part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.

Our seven core values

  • God's Truth - Preach it!  Live it! - Preach God always, and when you must, use words.
  • Lost People Matter to God so They Matter to Me - Seeing each other through God's eyes.
  • Culturally Relevant, Doctrinally Pure - God's content in our context.
  • Authentic and Growing Relationships - Grow in an environment where you can be who God has made you to be.
  • Loving Relationships - Love one another as God loves you.
  • Excellence - For God, only the best will do.
  • Fully Devoted to Jesus - God is your all-in-all!

Adventists accept the Bible as their only creed, believing also God desires for us to have healthy bodies, strong minds and a spiritual connection with Him.
