To be transformed by the love of God, so that we can love others as God loves us!
To reach out to the un-churched. To intentionally love everyone who comes through our doors to worship and to encourage each other as we grow in Christ and prepare for His second coming.
“Adventist” refers to our belief in the second advent or the literal second-coming of Jesus.
We base our faith in God on the revelation of His character by His Son, Jesus, as shown in the Bible, the inspired Word of God.
Faith is placing complete trust in God and accepting His offer of salvation.
The heart of our message is God’s good news of salvation. Jesus’ death on the cross provides God’s free gift of eternal life to all those who accept and follow Him.
On the seventh-day Sabbath (Saturday) we are invited to come together to worship God, our Creator and Saviour.
The Second Advent
Although we do not set a date for this event, we do look forward to the glorious return of Jesus Christ as He promised He would.
We operate one of the largest educational systems in the world. Our worldwide system provides elementary, secondary, and higher education programs including graduate and post graduate as well as medical arts.In Canada, we operate 46 schools (K-12) with over 3300 students and more than 290 teachers. Among these are Parkview Adventist Academy (grades 10-12) in Alberta, and Kingsway College (grades 9-12) in Ontario, both providing boarding facilities and a work study program. Canadian University College, located in Alberta, offers accredited under-graduate degrees and certificated programs in a number of disciplines.
Many local churches operate Community Centers that provide food and clothing to those in need. Family life counselling and other programs are also offered to assist those wishing to overcome drug addiction and alcohol or tobacco dependence.
Quality of Life
The fundamental beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church come from our understanding of the grace of Christ and directly address the general theme of quality of life.
