  • Title: North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists® : Organizational Structure
    Descriptive info: Four levels of Church structure lead from the individual believer to the worldwide Church organization:.. The local church is made up of individual believers.. The local conference, or local field/mission, is made up of a number of local churches in a state, province, or territory.. The union conference, or union field/mission, is made up of conferences or fields within a larger territory (often a grouping of states or a a whole country).. The.. General Conference.. , the most extensive unit of organization, is made up of all unions/entities in all parts of the world.. Divisions are sections of the General Conference, with administrative responsibility for particular geographical areas.. Each level is representative.. That is, it reflects a democratic process of formation and election.. Local churches elect their own officers and church boards by majority voting.. Churches elect delegates to the conferences which meet in session every two or three years..

  • Title: North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists® : What We Believe
    Descriptive info: 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.. 28 Fundamental Beliefs.. Revision of these statements may be expected at a General Conference session when the church is led by the Holy Spirit to a fuller understanding of Bible truth or finds better language in which to express the teachings of God s Holy Word.. (Click the [+] to learn more.. ).. The Holy Scriptures.. The Holy Scriptures, Old and New Testaments, are the written Word of God, given by divine inspiration through holy men of God who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.. In this Word, God has committed to man the knowledge necessary for salvation.. The Holy Scriptures are the infallible revelation of His will.. They are the standard of character, the test of experience, the authoritative revealer of doctrines, and the trustworthy record of God s acts in history.. (2 Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Tim.. 3:16, 17; Ps.. 119:105; Prov.. 30:5, 6; Isa.. 8:20; John 17:17; 1 Thess.. 2:13; Heb.. 4:12.. The Trinity.. There is one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a unity of three co-eternal Persons.. God is immortal, all-powerful, all-knowing, above all, and ever present.. He is infinite and beyond human comprehension, yet known through His self-revelation.. He is forever worthy of worship, adoration, and service by the whole creation.. (Deut.. 6:4; Matt.. 28:19; 2 Cor.. 13:14; Eph.. 4:4-6; 1 Peter 1:2; 1 Tim.. 1:17; Rev.. 14:7.. The Father.. God the eternal Father is the Creator, Source, Sustainer, and Sovereign of all creation.. He is just and holy, merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.. The qualities and powers exhibited in the Son and the Holy Spirit are also revelations of the Father.. (Gen.. 1:1; Rev.. 4:11; 1 Cor.. 15:28; John 3:16; 1 John 4:8; 1 Tim.. 1:17; Ex.. 34:6, 7; John 14:9.. The Son.. God the eternal Son became incarnate in Jesus Christ.. Through Him all things were created, the character of God is revealed, the salvation of humanity is accomplished, and the world is judged.. Forever truly God, He became also truly man, Jesus the Christ.. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.. He lived and experienced temptation as a human being, but perfectly exemplified the righteousness and love of God.. By His miracles He manifested God s power and was attested as God s promised Messiah.. He suffered and died voluntarily on the cross for our sins and in our place, was raised from the dead, and ascended to minister in the heavenly sanctuary in our behalf.. He will come again in glory for the final deliverance of His people and the restoration of all things.. (John 1:1-3, 14; Col.. 1:15-19; John 10:30; 14:9; Rom.. 6:23; 2 Cor.. 5:17-19; John 5:22; Luke 1:35; Phil.. 2:5-11; Heb.. 2:9-18; 1 Cor.. 15:3, 4; Heb.. 8:1, 2; John 14:1-3.. The Holy Spirit.. God the eternal Spirit was active with the Father and the Son in Creation, incarnation, and redemption.. He inspired the writers of Scripture.. He filled Christ s life with power.. He draws and convicts human beings; and those who respond He renews and transforms into the image of God.. Sent by the Father and the Son to be always with His children, He extends spiritual gifts to the church, empowers it to bear witness to Christ, and in harmony with the Scriptures leads it into all truth.. 1:1, 2; Luke 1:35; 4:18; Acts 10:38; 2 Peter 1:21; 2 Cor.. 3:18; Eph.. 4:11, 12; Acts 1:8; John 14:16-18, 26; 15:26, 27; 16:7-13.. Creation.. God is Creator of all things, and has revealed in Scripture the authentic account of His creative activity.. In six days the Lord made the heaven and the earth and all living things upon the earth, and rested on the seventh day of that first week.. Thus He established the Sabbath as a perpetual memorial of His completed creative work.. The first man and woman were made in the image of God as the crowning work of Creation, given dominion over the world, and charged with responsibility to care for it.. When the world was finished it was very good , declaring the glory of God.. 1; 2; Ex.. 20:8-11; Ps.. 19:1-6; 33:6, 9; 104; Heb.. 11:3.. The Nature of Man.. Man and woman were made in the image of God with individuality, the power and freedom to think and to do.. Though created free beings, each is an indivisible unity of body, mind, and spirit, dependent upon God for life and breath and all else.. When our first parents disobeyed God, they denied their dependence upon Him and fell from their high position under God.. The image of God in them was marred and they became subject to death.. Their descendants share this fallen nature and its consequences.. They are born with weaknesses and tendencies to evil.. But God in Christ reconciled the world to Himself and by His Spirit restores in penitent mortals the image of their Maker.. Created for the glory of God, they are called to love Him and one another, and to care for their environment.. 1:26-28; 2:7; Ps.. 8:4-8; Acts 17:24-28; Gen.. 3; Ps.. 51:5; Rom.. 5:12-17; 2 Cor.. 5:19, 20; Ps.. 51:10; 1 John 4:7, 8, 11, 20; Gen.. 2:15.. The Great Controversy.. All humanity is now involved in a great controversy between Christ and Satan regarding the character of God, His law, and His sovereignty over the universe.. This conflict originated in heaven when a created being, endowed with freedom of choice, in self-exaltation became Satan, God s adversary, and led into rebellion a portion of the angels.. He introduced the spirit of rebellion into this world when he led Adam and Eve into sin.. This human sin resulted in the distortion of the image of God in humanity, the disordering of the created world, and its eventual devastation at the time of the worldwide flood.. Observed by the whole creation, this world became the arena of the universal conflict, out of which the God of love will ultimately be vindicated.. To assist His people in this controversy, Christ sends the Holy Spirit and the loyal angels to guide, protect, and sustain them in the way of salvation.. (Rev.. 12:4-9; Isa.. 14:12-14; Eze.. 28:12-18; Gen.. 3; Rom.. 1:19-32; 5:12-21; 8:19-22; Gen.. 6-8; 2 Peter 3:6; 1 Cor.. 4:9; Heb.. 1:14.. The Life, Death, and Resurrection of Christ.. In Christ s life of perfect obedience to God s will, His suffering, death, and resurrection, God provided the only means of atonement for human sin, so that those who by faith accept this atonement may have eternal life, and the whole creation may better understand the infinite and holy love of the Creator.. This perfect atonement vindicates the righteousness of God s law and the graciousness of His character; for it both condemns our sin and provides for our forgiveness.. The death of Christ is substitutionary and expiatory, reconciling and transforming.. The resurrection of Christ proclaims God s triumph over the forces of evil, and for those who accept the atonement assures their final victory over sin and death.. It declares the Lordship of Jesus Christ, before whom every knee in heaven and on earth will bow.. (John 3:16; Isa.. 53; 1 Peter 2:21, 22; 1 Cor.. 15:3, 4, 20-22; 2 Cor.. 5:14, 15, 19-21; Rom.. 1:4; 3:25; 4:25; 8:3, 4; 1 John 2:2; 4:10; Col.. 2:15; Phil.. 2:6-11.. The Experience of Salvation.. In infinite love and mercy God made Christ, who knew no sin, to be sin for us, so that in Him we might be made the righteousness of God.. Led by the Holy Spirit we sense our need, acknowledge our sinfulness, repent of our transgressions, and exercise faith in Jesus as Lord and Christ, as Substitute and Example.. This faith which receives salvation comes through the divine power of the Word and is the gift of God s grace.. Through Christ we are justified, adopted as God s sons and daughters, and delivered from the lordship of sin.. Through the Spirit we are born again and sanctified; the Spirit renews our minds, writes God s law of love in our hearts, and we are given the power to live a holy life.. Abiding in Him we become partakers of the divine nature and have the assurance of salvation now and in the judgment.. (2 Cor.. 5:17-21; John 3:16; Gal.. 1:4; 4:4-7; Titus 3:3-7; John 16:8; Gal.. 3:13, 14; 1 Peter 2:21, 22; Rom.. 10:17; Luke 17:5; Mark 9:23, 24; Eph.. 2:5-10; Rom.. 3:21-26; Col.. 1:13, 14; Rom.. 8:14-17;  ...   is obedience to the Commandments.. This obedience develops Christian character and results in a sense of well-being.. It is an evidence of our love for the Lord and our concern for our fellow men.. The obedience of faith demonstrates the power of Christ to transform lives, and therefore strengthens Christian witness.. (Ex.. 20:1-17; Ps.. 40:7, 8; Matt.. 22:36-40; Deut.. 28:1-14; Matt.. 5:17-20; Heb.. 8:8-10; John 15:7-10; Eph.. 2:8-10; 1 John 5:3; Rom.. 8:3, 4; Ps.. 19:7-14.. The Sabbath.. The beneficent Creator, after the six days of Creation, rested on the seventh day and instituted the Sabbath for all people as a memorial of Creation.. The fourth commandment of God s unchangeable law requires the observance of this seventh-day Sabbath as the day of rest, worship, and ministry in harmony with the teaching and practice of Jesus, the Lord of the Sabbath.. The Sabbath is a day of delightful communion with God and one another.. It is a symbol of our redemption in Christ, a sign of our sanctification, a token of our allegiance, and a foretaste of our eternal future in God s kingdom.. The Sabbath is God s perpetual sign of His eternal covenant between Him and His people.. Joyful observance of this holy time from evening to evening, sunset to sunset, is a celebration of God s creative and redemptive acts.. 2:1-3; Ex.. 20:8-11; Luke 4:16; Isa.. 56:5, 6; 58:13, 14; Matt.. 12:1-12; Ex.. 31:13-17; Eze.. 20:12, 20; Deut.. 5:12-15; Heb.. 4:1-11; Lev.. 23:32; Mark 1:32.. We are God s stewards, entrusted by Him with time and opportunities, abilities and possessions, and the blessings of the earth and its resources.. We are responsible to Him for their proper use.. We acknowledge God s ownership by faithful service to Him and our fellow men, and by returning tithes and giving offerings for the proclamation of His gospel and the support and growth of His church.. Stewardship is a privilege given to us by God for nurture in love and the victory over selfishness and covetousness.. The steward rejoices in the blessings that come to others as a result of his faithfulness.. 1:26-28; 2:15; 1 Chron.. 29:14; Haggai 1:3-11; Mal.. 3:8-12; 1 Cor.. 9:9-14; Matt.. 23:23; 2 Cor.. 8:1-15; Rom.. 15:26, 27.. Christian Behavior.. We are called to be a godly people who think, feel, and act in harmony with the principles of heaven.. For the Spirit to recreate in us the character of our Lord we involve ourselves only in those things which will produce Christlike purity, health, and joy in our lives.. This means that our amusement and entertainment should meet the highest standards of Christian taste and beauty.. While recognizing cultural differences, our dress is to be simple, modest, and neat, befitting those whose true beauty does not consist of outward adornment but in the imperishable ornament of a gentle and quiet spirit.. It also means that because our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit, we are to care for them intelligently.. Along with adequate exercise and rest, we are to adopt the most healthful diet possible and abstain from the unclean foods identified in the Scriptures.. Since alcoholic beverages, tobacco, and the irresponsible use of drugs and narcotics are harmful to our bodies, we are to abstain from them as well.. Instead, we are to engage in whatever brings our thoughts and bodies into the discipline of Christ, who desires our wholesomeness, joy, and goodness.. 12:1, 2; 1 John 2:6; Eph.. 5:1-21; Phil.. 4:8; 2 Cor.. 10:5; 6:14-7:1; 1 Peter 3:1-4; 1 Cor.. 6:19, 20; 10:31; Lev.. 11:1-47; 3 John 2.. Marriage and the Family.. Marriage was divinely established in Eden and affirmed by Jesus to be a lifelong union between a man and a woman in loving companionship.. For the Christian a marriage commitment is to God as well as to the spouse, and should be entered into only between partners who share a common faith.. Mutual love, honor, respect, and responsibility are the fabric of this relationship, which is to reflect the love, sanctity, closeness, and permanence of the relationship between Christ and His church.. Regarding divorce, Jesus taught that the person who divorces a spouse, except for fornication, and marries another, commits adultery.. Although some family relationships may fall short of the ideal, marriage partners who fully commit themselves to each other in Christ may achieve loving unity through the guidance of the Spirit and the nurture of the church.. God blesses the family and intends that its members shall assist each other toward complete maturity.. Parents are to bring up their children to love and obey the Lord.. By their example and their words they are to teach them that Christ is a loving disciplinarian, ever tender and caring, who wants them to become members of His body, the family of God.. Increasing family closeness is one of the earmarks of the final gospel message.. 2:18-25; Matt.. 19:3-9; John 2:1-11; 2 Cor.. 6:14; Eph.. 5:21-33; Matt.. 5:31, 32; Mark 10:11, 12; Luke 16:18; 1 Cor.. 7:10, 11; Ex.. 20:12; Eph.. 6:1-4; Deut.. 6:5-9; Prov.. 22:6; Mal.. 4:5, 6.. Christ s Ministry in the Heavenly Sanctuary.. There is a sanctuary in heaven, the true tabernacle which the Lord set up and not man.. In it Christ ministers on our behalf, making available to believers the benefits of His atoning sacrifice offered once for all on the cross.. He was inaugurated as our great High Priest and began His intercessory ministry at the time of His ascension.. In 1844, at the end of the prophetic period of 2300 days, He entered the second and last phase of His atoning ministry.. It is a work of investigative judgment which is part of the ultimate disposition of all sin, typified by the cleansing of the ancient Hebrew sanctuary on the Day of Atonement.. In that typical service the sanctuary was cleansed with the blood of animal sacrifices, but the heavenly things are purified with the perfect sacrifice of the blood of Jesus.. The investigative judgment reveals to heavenly intelligences who among the dead are asleep in Christ and therefore, in Him, are deemed worthy to have part in the first resurrection.. It also makes manifest who among the living are abiding in Christ, keeping the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus, and in Him, therefore, are ready for translation into His everlasting kingdom.. This judgment vindicates the justice of God in saving those who believe in Jesus.. It declares that those who have remained loyal to God shall receive the kingdom.. The completion of this ministry of Christ will mark the close of human probation before the Second Advent.. (Heb.. 8:1-5; 4:14-16; 9:11-28; 10:19-22; 1:3; 2:16, 17; Dan.. 7:9-27; 8:13, 14; 9:24-27; Num.. 14:34; Eze.. 4:6; Lev.. 16; Rev.. 14:6, 7; 20:12; 14:12; 22:12.. The Second Coming of Christ.. The second coming of Christ is the blessed hope of the church, the grand climax of the gospel.. The Saviour s coming will be literal, personal, visible, and worldwide.. When He returns, the righteous dead will be resurrected, and together with the righteous living will be glorified and taken to heaven, but the unrighteous will die.. The almost complete fulfillment of most lines of prophecy, together with the present condition of the world, indicates that Christ s coming is imminent.. The time of that event has not been revealed, and we are therefore exhorted to be ready at all times.. (Titus 2:13; Heb.. 9:28; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:9-11; Matt.. 24:14; Rev.. 1:7; Matt.. 24:43, 44; 1 Thess.. 4:13-18; 1 Cor.. 15:51-54; 2 Thess.. 1:7-10; 2:8; Rev.. 14:14-20; 19:11-21; Matt.. 24; Mark 13; Luke 21; 2 Tim.. 3:1-5; 1 Thess.. 5:1-6.. Death and Resurrection.. The wages of sin is death.. But God, who alone is immortal, will grant eternal life to His redeemed.. Until that day death is an unconscious state for all people.. When Christ, who is our life, appears, the resurrected righteous and the living righteous will be glorified and caught up to meet their Lord.. The second resurrection, the resurrection of the unrighteous, will take place a thousand years later.. 6:23; 1 Tim.. 6:15, 16; Eccl.. 9:5, 6; Ps.. 146:3, 4; John 11:11-14; Col.. 3:4; 1 Cor.. 15:51-54; 1 Thess.. 4:13-17; John 5:28, 29; Rev.. 20:1-10.. The Millennium and the End of Sin.. The millennium is the thousand-year reign of Christ with His saints in heaven between the first and second resurrections.. During this time the wicked dead will be judged; the earth will be utterly desolate, without living human inhabitants, but occupied by Satan and his angels.. At its close Christ with His saints and the Holy City will descend from heaven to earth.. The unrighteous dead will then be resurrected, and with Satan and his angels will surround the city; but fire from God will consume them and cleanse the earth.. The universe will thus be freed of sin and sinners forever.. 20; 1 Cor.. 6:2, 3; Jer.. 4:23-26; Rev.. 21:1-5; Mal.. 4:1; Eze.. 28:18, 19.. The New Earth.. On the new earth, in which righteousness dwells, God will provide an eternal home for the redeemed and a perfect environment for everlasting life, love, joy, and learning in His presence.. For here God Himself will dwell with His people, and suffering and death will have passed away.. The great controversy will be ended, and sin will be no more.. All things, animate and inanimate, will declare that God is love; and He shall reign forever.. Amen.. (2 Peter 3:13; Isa.. 35; 65:17-25; Matt.. 5:5; Rev.. 21:1-7; 22:1-5; 11:15.. )..
