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. We believe that God Loves God is love, power, and splendor—and God is a mystery. His ways are far beyond us, but He still reaches out to us. God is infinite yet intimate, three yet one, all-knowing yet all-forgiving.
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Psalm 119:105

[ April 27, 2016 ] The following is an official statement from the Adventist leaders in the North and South Bahamas Conferences and the leadership of the Atlantic Caribbean Union on the upcoming referendum.

As it relates to the issue of gender equality, the Seventh-day Adventist Church views both males and females as having been created in the image and likeness of God as noted in Genesis 1:27. Given this fact, the Adventist Church commends the bi-partisan vote of parliament as it sought to address the obvious gender inequality in the constitution of the Bahamas. Furthermore, the Adventist Church affirms its support for the fundamental principle of treating all citizens (male, female, young, old, religious, non-religious, of whichever socio-economic or ethnic background) as equals under the law. Notwithstanding some concerns expressed by some of our church members regarding aspects of the Bills, the Adventist Church continues to believe in the objective of addressing the present inequalities relating to males and females.
