Our Local Community of Christ-seekers
The Columbia Seventh-day Adventist church is group of English and Spanish speaking people who desire to be more like Jesus. This is what brings healing to us and to our neighbors. Day by day he is helping us to trust him more and lay aside our problems.
We are not perfect people. Our fellowship knows that we need help to be loving, joyful, peaceful, forgiving, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled. Community is a great place to practice this!
We welcome you to our meetings, and hope you will find in this fellowship the help and friendship we have been privileged to enjoy.
We who live, or have lived, with the problem of sin, understand the struggle. We, too, were lonely and frustrated but in God we discover that no situation is really hopeless and that it is possible for us to find contentment and even happiness.
We encourage you to visit us. Many of us find solutions that lead to peace in our lives. So much depends on our attitudes, and as we learn to place our problem in its true perspective, we find it loses its power to dominate our thoughts and our lives.
Your life is bound to improve as principles of love from the Bible are practiced. Without such spiritual help, life is too much for most of us. Our thinking becomes distorted by trying to force solutions, and we become irritable and unreasonable without knowing it.
We try, little by little, one day at a time, to apply to our lives principles from the Bible. The loving interchange of help among members and daily reading of the Bible make us ready to receive the priceless gift of peace.
About the Seventh-day Adventist Organization
The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a mainstream Protestant church with approximately 19 million members worldwide, including more than one million members in North America. 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.
