The Seventh-day Adventist Church upholds the Bible as its sole creed and foundation of faith. They believe that their fundamental beliefs are derived directly from the teachings of the Holy Scriptures. These 28 fundamental beliefs encapsulate the church's interpretation and application of biblical teachings, guiding the spiritual and practical lives of its members.



The beliefs span a wide range of doctrinal areas, including the nature of God, humanity, salvation, the church, Christian behavior, and last-day events. They begin with an affirmation of the Trinity, recognizing God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit as three co-eternal Persons. They emphasize the creation of humanity in God's image and the fall of mankind, necessitating a divine plan for salvation.


Central to their faith is the belief in Jesus Christ's atoning sacrifice, His resurrection, and His mediatorial work in the heavenly sanctuary. They also uphold the importance of the Sabbath, the seventh day of the week, as a day of rest and worship, in accordance with the Fourth Commandment.


The Adventists emphasize the Second Coming of Christ as imminent, advocating for a life of readiness and ethical living. They believe in the mission of the church to spread the gospel to the world, the significance of baptism, the observance of the Lord's Supper, and the role of spiritual gifts and ministries.


These beliefs are not static; the Adventists hold that their understanding may grow and deepen as they continue to study the Bible. Thus, the 28 fundamental beliefs serve as a dynamic framework, uniting members in their shared commitment to the teachings of Scripture and their mission in the world.
