Sharon S.D.A. Church
Seventh-Day Adventists accept the Bible as their only creed and holds
certain fundamental beliefs to be the teaching of the Holy Scriptures.
These beliefs, as set forth here, constitute the church’s understanding
and expression of the teaching of Scripture. They 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.
By baptism we confess our faith in the death and resurrection of
Jesus Christ, and testify of our death to sin and of our purpose
to walk in newness of life. Thus we acknowledge Christ as
Lord and Saviour, become His people, and are received as
members by His church. Baptism is a symbol of our union with
Christ, the forgiveness of our sins, and our reception of the
Holy Spirit. It is by immersion in water and is contingent on an
affirmation of faith in Jesus and evidence of repentance of sin.
It follows instruction in the Holy Scriptures and acceptance of
their teachings. (Matt. 28:19, 20; Acts 2:38; 16:30-33; 22:16;
Rom. 6:1-6; Gal. 3:27; Col. 2:12, 13.)

SHARON SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST CHURCH
We Welcome Our Guests:
Ellen G. White
We want to extend this invitation
For you to come along
And become part of our church family
Where you feel that you belong
For you are valued by the Lord
And He has a purpose for you,
He's placed within you special gifts,
He longs for you to use
And we, as a church, would love to see
You grow within your gifts,
For then we all can receive a blessing
With what God's blessed you with.
“Let a living faith run like threads of gold through the performance of even the smallest
duties. Then all the daily work will promote Christian growth. There will be a continual
looking unto Jesus. Love for Him will give vital force to everything that is undertaken.—
My Life Today, p. 250.”
“United in Christ”
“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, are in me; and I in thee; that they also may be
one in us; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou
gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them; and
thou in me, that may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast
sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
