A main stream Protestant denomination, Seventh-day Adventists strive daily to develop a closer relationship with Jesus Christ, to become more like Him, and to serve others as He did. The heart of our mission is to help others realize the hope found in experiencing a personal relationship with a living God and loving Savior, and nurturing them in preparation for His soon return.
