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

From a religious outlook, distrust continues to punctuate the thinking of many, simply because there is confusion as to what to believe and who to trust when it comes to the promulgation of the Word of God.

Paul, the Apostle, in 2 Timothy 3:1-13 states that perilous times will come, when men will love self more than God, they will become lovers of pleasure. Revelation 17 advances the state of confusion in the religious realm under the heading of Babylon who acts like a whore. Read More
When I was a sophomore in college, my roommate, Robert, volunteered me to serve in a local Christmas project. Robert, an incurable optimist, felt confident I wouldn’t mind helping out. The project, he said, was simple. “We’ll collect some baskets of food for a needy family just off campus. We’ll raise money from students to pay for the food. Then a bunch of us, a couple dozen at least, will walk to the house, present the food baskets, and then walk back to campus.” He volunteered me because someone had to do the presenting, and I was a speech major. Since I am no optimist, the whole idea didn’t thrill me. I don’t enjoy walking anywhere, especially during the winter months. And presenting food baskets to poor people wasn’t the sort of public speaking experience I coveted on my résumé.. Read More
