 About Seventh-day Adventists

The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a mainstream Protestant church with
approximately 19 million members worldwide, including more than one million
members in North America. The Seventh-day Adventist Church seeks to enhance
quality of life for people everywhere and to let people know that Jesus is coming

again soon.

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 part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our

talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.
