Newcastle upon Tyne Seventh-day Adventist Church A diverse family of God: come and be a part of it

Menu
Science One member advised us that we should encourage our young people to be scientists - our teachings are so valuable that we recognise the need to share them with people who work in many scientific fields
Health Ministry Seventh-day Adventists are renowned for their 'Health Message'. We also care about the health of the community around us - so we run 'Health Expo's' and teach good health practices
Church is - people The church is people. We are a multi-national church joined by a common faith.
Children's Ministry Our children are special to us. Pastor Patricia Douglas joined us for a special 'coming of age' celebration. The children enjoyed learning that God is a great Potter, and we choose to be moulded by Him.
Music is important to us A normal Sabbath morning will always include music - usually with special items from singers or musicians. The talent is abundant. God indeed gives gifts
Sabbath School The first service on a Sabbath morning is a Bible study time we call 'Sabbath School'. All ages take part. The adult classes are stimulating discussions based on themes found in the Bible.
Pathfinders Our children benefit from Adventurers and Pathfinders. They go camping, learn skills and develop relationships with each other and God in a really safe environment

What we Believe

The Trinity

There is one God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a unity of three co-eternal Persons usually called the Trinity. God the Father is the Creator, Source, Sustainer, and Sovereign of all creation. God the eternal Son became incarnate in Jesus Christ, through Whom all things were created; the character of God is revealed; the salvation of humanity is accomplished; and the world is judged. God the Holy Spirit draws men and women to Himself and gives spiritual gifts to the Church.

Christ our Hope

In Christ's life of perfect obedience to God's will, His suffering, death, and resurrection, God provided the only means of atonement for human sin, so that those who by faith accept this atonement have eternal life.

Christ's Return

The second coming of Christ is the blessed hope of the Church, the grand climax of the Gospel. His coming will be literal, personal, visible, and world-wide. When He returns the righteous dead will be resurrected and together with the righteous living will be glorified and taken to heaven. The unrighteous - those who have rejected divine grace - will die.

The Church

The Church is the community of believers who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. In it men and women join together for worship, fellowship, instruction in the Word, the celebration of the Lord's Supper, service to our neighbours, and the world-wide proclamation of the Gospel.

The Holy Scriptures

The Old and New Testaments are the written Word of God, given by divine inspiration through holy men of God who spoke and wrote by the Holy Spirit. The Scriptures are the infallible revelation of God's will.

Baptism

Baptism by immersion is a symbol of our union with Christ, the forgiveness of our sins, and our reception of the Holy Spirit.

The Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments, the great principles of God's law, are exemplified in the life of Christ. They express God's love, will, and purposes concerning human conduct and relationships. Salvation is all of grace and not of works, but its fruitage is obedience to the Commandments, not in hopeless effort to earn salvation, but in grateful harmony with the life and will of Him whose perfect obedience has brought us confidence and acceptance as His sons and daughters.

The Sabbath

The seventh day of the week, Saturday, is observed as the day of rest, worship, and ministry in harmony with the teaching and practice of Jesus, the Lord of the Sabbath. The Sabbath is a day of delightful communion with God and one another. We joyfully observe this holy time from Friday evening to Saturday evening, from sunset to sunset, as a celebration of God's creative and redemptive acts.

The New Earth

On the new earth, in which righteousness dwells, God will provide a glorious home for the redeemed with a perfect environment for everlasting life, love, joy and learning. God Himself will dwell with His people, and suffering and death will exist no more.
