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.

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

Do we intentionally carve out time to talk to our children about God and how He can be their lifelong friend? The Bible mandates parents to pass on our faith to the next generation. Through Moses God says, “And these words which I command you shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up” .Read More
