We, the members of the Stevensville Seventh-day Adventist Church, exist as part of the world-wide movement of Seventh-day Adventists to share the gospel commission and proclaim the three angels’ messages to all people within our sphere of influence.
Desiring to celebrate the joy of salvation found only in Jesus Christ, we wish to be an expanding and vibrant fellowship, strong in Christian nurturing and effective in the use of our abilities toward advancing the cause of Christ. Believing in God’s supremacy and the soon coming of Jesus, we want to promote righteous living through Christian character development to each other and our neighbors.
Because our church is geographically located in close proximity with numerous other Seventh-day Adventist churches, we also see as part of our mission the offering of a unique blend of worship and fellowship that promotes an inviting atmosphere which appeals to many from the communities represented.
Therefore, we purpose to dedicate ourselves to this mission and its inherent goals, and express confidence in God’s ability to make provision for its accomplishment. We accept this challenge willingly and are thankful for the opportunity to serve the Lord, while eagerly awaiting His return.
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.
