Our basic beliefs are condensed into the following primary teachings. We believe in the principles of the reformation as described in its motto: Sola Scriptura, Sola Gracia, Sola Christos.
Sola Christos, Sola Gracia
We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man (See Hebrews 2). He is our ONLY means of salvation, and it is only by His grace and His grace alone through faith in Him that we are saved. We can do nothing to earn our salvation but through Christ, within us (His imparted righteousness) we are able to obey God.
We believe in the veracity of the Bible as God’s holy unerring Word of God that has creative power. It is the Word of God from cover to cover. We believe the Bible is the guidebook through which all may find salvation and restoration and recommend it to be read slowly, prayerfully, and frequently.
We believe in the literal interpretation of Genesis 1 & 2— that God created the heavens and the earth in 6 literal days and rested the 7th, and that the signs of His creative work exist in the natural world even today.
We believe that Jesus is coming again in the clouds of heaven and that at His coming the righteous dead will be raised and the righteous living will be translated in the twinkling of an eye and together that we will meet Him in the air according to the scriptures (See 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). We believe that in 1844 Jesus moved from the Holy Place in the sanctuary in Heaven to the Most Holy place to start His work of judgment and that as a result, we are living in the time of the investigative judgment.
Because of our love for Jesus and thankfulness for what He has done for us, we choose to keep God’s commandments (See John 14:15). This includes the Fourth Commandment, which tells us that we must keep the Sabbath holy on the seventh day as a sign between Him and His people of His creative and redemptive work.
We believe that we are commissioned to preach the 3 Angels’ Messages of Revelation 14, announcing that the hour of His judgment has come, that we are to worship Him who made heaven and earth, that Babylon has fallen, and warning people of the mark of the beast.
Spirit of Prophecy
We believe in God’s gift to the remnant, the Spirit of Prophecy, as manifested through the life and writings of Ellen G. White.
We believe that she was a prophet of God sent to the end-time church, that her counsel on Christian living and lifestyle serves as a guide in the confusion of these last days, and that her writings are suitable for exegesis.
We believe in the principles of healthful living as taught in the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy, and strive to adhere to a vegan lifestyle and to follow the 8 laws of health to the best of our ability by God’s grace, believing that as we near the return of Jesus, our lifestyles should be as closely aligned as possible to what God ordained in the garden of Eden.
We base our beliefs on the teachings of the Seventh-day Adventist Church as they adhere to the Bible and are set forth in the book Principles of Life.
