What We Believe
The Seventh-day Adventist Church recognizes God as the ultimate source of existence, truth and power. In the beginning God created a perfect humanity in His image, a perfection later marred by sin. Education, in its broadest sense, is a means of returning human beings to their original relationship with God. An education of this kind imparts far more than academic knowledge. It fosters a balanced development of the whole person: spiritual, physical, intellectual, social and emotional—a process that spans a lifetime.
"Adventist education is about teaching a whole and complete life, for a lifetime."-the Seventh-day Adventist World Church
As a Christian church, Seventh-day Adventists are a faith community rooted in the Bible—the source of our beliefs.
Currently, Adventists hold 28 fundamental beliefs that can be organized into six categories: the doctrines of God, man, salvation, the church, the Christian life and last day events. In each teaching, God is the architect, who in wisdom, grace and infinite love, is restoring a relationship with humanity that will last for eternity.
