About the 7th Day Church of God

Statement of Beliefs
The Bible is the dependable and authoritative Word of God.
No other writing is of such divine origin or is necessary for Christian faith and practice.
God the Father is the almighty Creator and loving Provider, eternal King and Judge of the universe.
Jesus Christ, the pre-existent Son of God, is the Savior, Lord, and eternal Redeemer of all who truly believe.
The holy spirit is the personal presence of God in believers - convicting, converting, teaching truth, prompting obedience, bearing fruit, distributing gifts, and empowering witness.
Humans are sinners by birth and by choice. Because our first parents disobeyed, sin and death follow on us all. All of us have sinned in thought, word, deed, and in omission.
Salvation consists of the forgiveness of sins and the gift of eternal life.
It originates in God’s grace, is achieved by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and is personally received by faith.
Saving faith includes repentance, which activates obedience and good works through love - all produced by the Holy Spirit within. The regenerate Christian is obedient to the terms of the gospel, to the words of Christ, and to the enduring law of God summarized in the Ten Commandments.
All the commandments remain as standards of holiness, including observance of the seventh-day Sabbath - also, for many churches, all of God’s annual appointed times listed in Lev.23.
All people who have trusted Christ unto repentance are members of the spiritual body, the church of God. The mission of the church is to proclaim the gospel, introduce others to the Lord, teach them to obey His Word, and nurture spiritual growth in all believers.
Jesus Christ instituted two ordinances for the church that confirm faith in Him: baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper, accompanied by foot washing.
Jesus Christ shall return from heaven at the end of this age. The dead shall be raised from their sleep in the grave, and all humans shall be judged according to their works. The righteous shall be changed to immortality to live forever with the Lord; the wicked shall be completely consumed in the lake of fire. There shall be a new heaven and a new earth as the home of the redeemed for all eternity.

Richard NickelsHistory of the Seventh Day Church of God explains
the split in the Adventist movement over
the visions of Ellen White.
T
he 7th Day Adventist Church - by far the largest of the 7th day churches today - was founded by those who accepted her as a prophet of God.

“Seventh-day Adventists accept the Bible as their only creed and hold certain fundamental beliefs to be the teaching of the Holy Scriptures.”
However, its Fundamental Beliefs (nos.2-5) includes the Trinity doctrine,
which it did not adopt until its Dallas Convention in 1980.
S
hortly afterwards the Adventist Review wrote:
“While no single Scripture passage states the doctrine of the Trinity,
it is assumed as a fact ... only by faith can we accept the existence
of the Trinity.”
(Vol.158, No.31, p.4)

The 7th Day Churches of God accept the Bible as their only creed"
- and therefore our lists of churches do not include the SDA.

(Does The Great Commission of Matthew 28:19-20 prove the Trinity?)
