About Seventh-day Adventists
.
Adventists believe in the Godhead, as described in Acts 17:29, Romans 1:20, and Colossians 2:9.  One in unity and purpose, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit made the salvation of humanity 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 through the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus was crucified for the sins of the world, arose from the dead on the third day, and now intercedes on our behalf before the Father in the sanctuary of heaven.

When He returned to heaven following the resurrection, Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to serve as our Comforter and Counselor. He promised to return to earth a second time to take His people to heaven. Adventists are among the believers who look forward to that day.  The word "Advent" comes from the Latin word "Adventus" which means "visit," "coming," or "arrival."  The name, "Seventh-day Adventist" basically means that we remember the seventh-day Sabbath of the fourth Commandment, and we look forward to the imminent second coming of Christ.

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 we live in--is of interest to Him. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him because of His great love for us.
