YOU ARE HERE: // About Us // Our Belief
To proclaim the everlasting gospel and nurture every member in preparation for Christ second coming.
Our vision is that every member will consistently demonstrate Christ-likeness in all their interactions and be ready for the coming of the Lord.
The South Bahamas Conference of Seventh-day Adventist is guided by these Biblically-sound principles: truthfulness, honesty, compassion, support for worthy causes, reverence for God’s Word, respect for recognized authorities, and a souls-culture orientation.
Truthfulness: We live in an age when individuals and groups misrepresent the truth. However, every person and every ministry will up-hold the standard of truth. To achieve this we will endeavor to know the truth (John 8:32).
Honesty: As a body of believers in Christ, we will represent Him in all our interactions in an honest and straightforward manner.
Compassion: Our commitment is to use God-given resources to meet the needs of humanity and to serve the less fortunate with compassion and love.
Fairness: In an environment of self-serving all-for-me attitude, we will deal fairly and equitably with everyone.
Forgiveness: The spirit of forgiveness as expressed in the Lord’s Prayer (Matt: 6:12) will motivate our actions toward those who come short in right doing. We believe that one can only be forgiven by God if he or she is willing to forgive others.
Excellence: Since we serve a God who is perfect in every way, it is our wish to please Him. Therefore, by faith we will strive for excellence in everything we attempt in His name.
Respect: Recognizing that God is our Creator and that He has given authority to leaders and rulers at various levels in society, we will teach, by precepts and example, that due respect should be shown to God and all legitimate authority.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a world-wide organization with over 25 million members in more that 210 countries.
Seventh-day Adventists accept the Bible as the only source of our beliefs. We consider our movement to be the result of the Protestant conviction Sola Scriptura—the Bible as the only standard of faith and practice for Christians.
Currently, Adventists hold 28 fundamental beliefs that can be organized into six categories:
In each teaching, God is the architect, who in wisdom, grace and infinite love, is restoring a relationship with humanity that will last for eternity.
