The Seventh-day Adventist Church is based on the teachings and principles of the Bible, which it considers to be the inspired word of God (2 Tim 3:16). The 66 books of the Old and New Testaments provide people with all the information about God's plan of salvation in Jesus Christ. The Old Testament foretells the coming of the Messiah, and the New Testament testifies to his life. The Bible tells people how they can relate to God. He reveals the meaning of life, advises how to improve interpersonal relationships, what to do to improve your spiritual, mental and physical health.
Basic doctrinal statements of the Seventh-day Adventist Church
Seventh-day Adventists accept the Bible as their only creed and derive basic doctrinal articles from it. The following statements are an expression of how the Church understands and expresses the teachings of Scripture. These statements may be revised during the General Conference when the Church, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, reaches a fuller understanding of the Scriptures or finds more concise terms to express what God's Word teaches.
