Who We Are

Seventh-day Adventists are a worldwide family of believers who uplift the never-ending love of God for this planet in turmoil. They consider that God is always the same. “For I am the LORD, I do not change”. (Malachi 3: 6.) His desire to communicate with human beings is continuously intact. Through His direct interaction with humanity, He promotes the best values for a meaningful life and prepares each and every one for the eternal kingdom to come. This is why His revelations on the Mount Sinai, and through the prophets, (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Zachariah, and others), as well as through the giants of spiritual life (Moses, Joshua, King David, Esdras, Nehemiah, etc.), are still relevant, with authority to legislate the life of believers. In addition, all holy writings point out that God is the Creator of all things, making “in six days the heavens and the earth” (Exodus 20: 11). Seventh-day Adventists are attached to this initial vision of a perfect creation and happily observe God’s universal commandment of Sabbath as a memorial of creation.

Furthermore, God’s project for the future of our planet is well presented in the Bible and represent the blessed hope for all believers. Through the soon coming of the Messiah, human challenges will be forever solved, for “He will teach us His ways, so that we may walk in His paths.” (Isaiah 2: 3). The inspired words of prophets describe this outstanding reality: “They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.” (Micah 4: 3). We strongly believe that the ministry of Jesus the Messiah has fulfilled the prophecies about His action in favor of humanity, 2,000 years ago and that He will come very soon to make an end to all suffering. We have no doubt that He will establish the everlasting “kingdom, which shall never be destroyed… and that shall stand forever.” (Daniel 2: 44).

Thus, the name of Seventh-day Adventists implies these two essential notions: ‘Seventh-day’ as the day of rest, Shabbat, established by God with the message of PEACE and ‘Adventist’, pointing to the coming of the Messiah, with the message of HOPE.
