Godhead

We believe in the unity of the Godhead, and that God the Father is a personal and spiritual being, the omnipotent and omniscient Creator of all things. He is eternal, infinite in wisdom, holiness, justice, goodness, truth, and mercy, and remains unchangeable, and omnipresent (Psalm 139:7). We belive in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, through whom all things were created and is sustained. Jesus took on human nature for the redemption of humanity, lived as our example, died as our sacrifice, was resurrected for our justification, and now serves as our sole mediator in the heavenly sanctuary. His atonement, culminating in the heavenly, priestly ministry and completes His work for our salvation (Leviticus 16; Hebrews 8:4-5; 9:6-7). Furthermore, we believe the Spirit of God testifies of Christ and is promised to manifest in the church through gifts outlined in 1 Corinthians 12 and Ephesians 4. These gifts are meant to complement the Bible, guiding believers to understand the inspired word, convict of sin, and transform hearts and lives.

Scripture and the Law

We believe that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of God and contain the full revelation of His will to humanity, serving as the only infallible rule of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16). God’s moral requirements are consistent across all ages and are encapsulated in the Ten Commandments, spoken by Jehovah from Sinai, engraved on stone tablets, and placed in the ark of the covenant (Numbers 10:33; Hebrews 9:4). This law is immutable and perpetual, being a transcript of the tables stored in the ark in the true sanctuary in Heaven, which is also referred to as the ark of God’s testament. Revelation describes the temple of God in Heaven being opened, revealing the ark of His testament (Revelation 11:19), emphasizing the eternal and unchanging nature of God’s moral law.

Salvation and a New Life

We believe that salvation is a transformative process initiated by faith and repentance, and publicly affirmed through the ordinance of baptism. Baptism, by immersion, symbolizes our faith in Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection, and anticipates the resurrection of all believers at the last day (Romans 6:3-5; Colossians 2:12). The new birth is essential for entry into the kingdom of God and comprises a twofold change: a moral transformation through conversion and a Christian life, and a physical transformation at Christ’s second coming, when the dead will be raised incorruptible and the living will be changed to immortality in an instant (John 3:3, 5; Luke 20:36; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52). This transformation, necessary to overcome the natural enmity of the carnal heart towards God and His law, is wrought by the Holy Spirit, who exchanges unholy affections for holy principles, thereby constituting regeneration or conversion.

Prophecy and the Second Coming

We believe that prophecy is an essential part of God’s revelation to humanity, providing instruction, guidance, and a light to our path (2 Timothy 3:16; Psalm 119:105; 2 Peter 1:19). Designed for all generations (Deuteronomy 29:29), prophecy is intended to be understood by God’s people, revealing their place in history and their responsibilities (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11). Prophecies outline the rise and fall of empires and significant historical events, with all fulfilled except the final scenes leading to God’s everlasting kingdom. Contrary to the belief in a temporal millennium and world conversion, we hold that the second coming of Christ precedes the millennium, during which the papal power persists, and evil continues to grow (Revelation 14; Ecclesiastes 9:10; Psalm 146:4; Ecclesiastes 9:5-6; Daniel 12:2; Revelation 20:4-6). At Christ’s return, the righteous will be resurrected or transformed and taken to heaven, reigning with Christ for a thousand years, while the earth remains desolate and Satan is confined and ultimately destroyed (John 14:1-3; 1 Corinthians 6:2-3; Jeremiah 4:20-27; Revelation 20:1-2, 10; Malachi 4:1). After the millennium, the wicked will be resurrected and face final judgment and destruction (Revelation 20:4-6, 9).

Final Events and Eternal Life

We affirm that the man of sin, the papacy, has sought to change God’s times and laws, specifically the fourth commandment (Daniel 7:25), leading to a prophesied reform among believers before Christ’s return (Isaiah 56:1-2; 1 Peter 1:5; Revelation 14:12). At the last trumpet, the living righteous will be transformed instantaneously and, together with the resurrected righteous, will meet the Lord in the air to be with Him forever (1 Corinthians 15:52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). The error of Adventists in 1844 was in misunderstanding the nature of the event predicted, not the timing; the longest prophetic period, 2300 days, ended in 1844, marking the cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary (Daniel 8:14; Hebrews 8:1-5; 9:22-23). This cleansing involves Christ’s final priestly work, begun in 1844, which will culminate in the end of mercy and Christ’s second advent. God’s immutable moral law, summarized in the Ten Commandments and housed in the ark of the covenant, remains unchanged and perpetual (Numbers 10:33; Hebrews 9:4; Revelation 11:19). The fourth commandment mandates Sabbath observance on the seventh day, established before the fall and to be kept in the new earth (Genesis 2:2-3; Isaiah 66:22-23). The terms “Jewish Sabbath” and “Christian Sabbath” are unscriptural and misleading. After the millennium, God will create new heavens and a new earth, where the New Jerusalem will be the eternal home of the saints (2 Peter 3:13; Psalm 37:11, 29; Matthew 5:5; Revelation 21:2). At the end of the thousand years, the wicked will be resurrected and, surrounding the New Jerusalem, will be consumed by fire from heaven, resulting in their complete and eternal destruction (Revelation 20:9; Malachi 4:1; Obadiah 15-16; 2 Thessalonians 1:9; Matthew 25:46; 2 Peter 3:7-12). This final judgment will cleanse the universe of sin, fulfilling God’s promise of a pure and holy creation.

“Christ’s method alone will give true success in reaching the people. The Savior mingled with men as one who desired their good. He showed His sympathy for them, ministered to their needs, and won their confidence. Then He bade them, ‘Follow Me.'”

– E.G. White, The Ministry of Healing, p. 143
