What We Believe

The Advent Christian Church teaches…

  • THAT God is the Creator of all things, the Sovereign of the universe, and our loving Father, who is fully revealed in His Son, Jesus Christ. (Gen. 1; Ps. 24; John 14:6,7; Heb. 1:2)
  • THAT The Lord Jesus Christ is the only Savior from sin; that he died for our sins, arose bodily from the dead, and ascended into heaven as our Mediator. (John 3:14-16; 1 Cor. 15:3, 4; Heb. 7:25)
  • THAT Christ will return to earth personally and visibly at the close of this age to judge the world and bestow eternal life upon believers. (Acts 1:9-11; Php 3:20, 21; 1 Thess. 4:16-17; 2 Tim. 4:1)
  • THAT Human history records the fulfillment of Bible prophecy as being nearly complete, which assures us of the soon return of Christ. (Luke 21:25-31; 2 Pet. 1:16-19)
  • THAT Man is mortal by nature, but may receive immortality as the gift of God at the resurrection, through faith in Jesus Christ. (John 3:16; Rom. 6:23; 1 Cor. 15:16-22)
  • THAT Man is unconscious from the moment of death until the resurrection, in a state often called “sleep” in the Bible. (Ps. 146:4; Eccl. 9:5, 10; John 11:11-14)
  • THAT There will be a resurrection of all the dead when Jesus comes again, when the just will enter into eternal life and the unjust will suffer the second death. (Dan. 12:3; John 5:28, 29; 1 Thess. 4:13-18)
  • THAT The final destiny of the wicked will be death, the complete and eternal cessation of life. (Mal. 4:1; 1 Thess. 1:7-9; Rom. 6:23; Matt. 10:28)
  • THAT The future home of the saints will be the kingdom of Christ on this earth made new following the earth’s redemption from sin and death. (Matt. 5:5; 2 Pet. 3:13; Rev. 21:1-5)
  • THAT The only divinely ordained sacraments are baptism and The Lord’s Supper, immersion being the only scriptural method of baptism. (Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:3, 4; 1 Cor. 11:23-26)
  • THAT Sunday being the day upon which Christ arose from the dead and the Holy Spirit descended upon the waiting Church, is the proper day for Christian worship. (Mark 16:1-9; Acts 2:1-4; Acts 20:7; 1 Cor. 16:1, 2)
