Living the Love of Jesus
Living the Love of Jesus is the mission of our church. Here at the Waynesboro Seventh-day Adventist Church, we are focused on two things - discipleship and outreach. Discipleship means we are focused on becoming more like Jesus in everything we do. Outreach means that we are blessed by God in order to be a blessing to our community and to the world.
About Seventh-day Adventists
The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a mainstream Protestant church with approximately 21 million members worldwide, including 1.2 million members in North America. The Church currently operates over 8,000 schools, colleges and universities, nearly 200 hospitals, and over 50 publishing houses around the world. The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) works within communities in more than 130 countries to provide community development and disaster relief.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church seeks to enhance quality of life for people everywhere and to let people know that Jesus is coming again soon.
Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father's will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone.
When He returned to heaven following the resurrection, Jesus left the Holy Spirit to serve as our Comforter and Counselor. He promised to return to earth a second time to complete His plan of salvation and take His people to heaven. Adventists are among the believers who look forward to that day.
Adventists believe that God is concerned with the quality of human life, and that everything—the way we live, eat, speak, think, treat each other, and care for the world around us—is part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.
