Have you recently met an Adventist? Perhaps you saw an announcement for an event at a local Adventist church, or stopped by one of the denomination’s schools or hospitals. You may have heard the word “Adventist” somewhere and want to know more about its meaning.
Seventh-day Adventists are a global family of Christians with the Bible as their highest authority. However, there are some characteristics that distinguish them from many other Christian denominations.
Let’s look at some basic components of their collective identity, which can give us an idea of what it means to be a Seventh-day Adventist.
- Adventists look to Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
- Adventists believe that the Bible introduces you to God.
- Adventists recognize the call to be unique, or “set apart” from the world.
- Adventists uphold the importance of the 4th commandment, the seventh-day Sabbath, even today.
- Adventists have a rich history, fueled by a renewed emphasis on rigorous Bible study.
- The Adventist Church Today – Belief in Action.
- The goal – Eternal life with Jesus Christ.
