About Our Church

The first Seventh-day Adventist church in the Columbia, SC area was formed in 1917.  Initially located on Assembly St. near the State Capitol; later on Elmwood Ave. and River Dr.  Our school has operated continuously since opening in 1919.  Currently we are located off the Lexington exit of I-20 and are proud to be part of a world-wide organization of more than 15-million members.  We would be happy to have you join us on Saturday morning for worship or at one of our events.

 

About Seventh-day Adventists

Adventists believe in the Triune God– Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit–make up one God (Genesis 1:26, Matthew 28:18, John 1:1, John 10:30, I John 5:7, John 1:14, John 15:26, John 14:26, I Corinthians 8:6). They made salvation possible through Jesus, the Son of God, Who 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 a part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.
