We are a Seventh-day Adventist Church, and have been here in Merced for over 100 years. Which is a long time to wait for something to happen... as Seventh-day Adventists, we believe Jesus is literally coming back... and "soon" (we hope not another 100 years). We've got a lot of Bible texts on this if you are interested.
We also love the Sabbath, and keep it on the 7th day. We got some Bible texts for this one too! But we are more than a day, and more than what we look forward to. We are people that see Jesus as the Savior of the world. He is the central character in this incredible good v's evil story. We think there is plenty of evil around us, and long for the good.
So take a look at these three specific areas below to see more of how we generally choose to live.
