Justin Woods discovers more than bones from a Tyrannosaurus rex when he excavates the Badlands of Wyoming. Watch his story on why the Adventist Fundamental Belief of Creation matters to him.
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.

Many have tried to determine what constitutes the essential human endeavor. For some it is to be known and for others it is to be loved. For many it is to make a lasting mark on the world so that the impact of one's life continues to have significance.

I haven’t tried to be scandalous, but I have tried to defy convention about what it means to be a pastor, and by extension, a Christian. For me, Christians aren’t just people who subscribe to a system of beliefs - they embrace life and accept its many challenges.
Seventh-day Adventist beliefs are meant to permeate your whole life. Growing out of scriptures that paint a compelling portrait of God, you are invited to explore, experience and know the One who desires to make us whole.
