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.
10. The Experience of Salvation
In infinite love and mercy God made Christ, who knew no sin, to be sin for
us, so that in Him we might be made the righteousness of God. Led by the
Holy Spirit we sense our need, acknowledge our sinfulness, repent of our
transgressions, and exercise faith in Jesus as Saviour and Lord, Substitute
and Example. This saving faith comes through the divine power of the
Word and is the gift of God’s grace. Through Christ we are justified,
adopted as God’s sons and daughters, and delivered from the lordship of sin.
Through the Spirit we are born again and sanctified; the Spirit renews our
minds, writes God’s law of love in our hearts, and we are given the power to
live a holy life. Abiding in Him we become partakers of the divine nature
and have the assurance of salvation now and in the judgment. (Gen. 3:15;
Isa. 45:22; 53; Jer. 31:31-34; Ezek. 33:11; 36:25-27; Hab. 2:4; Mark 9:23,
24; John 3:3-8, 16; 16:8; Rom. 3:21-26; 8:1-4, 14-17; 5:6-10; 10:17; 12:2; 2
Cor. 5:17-21; Gal. 1:4; 3:13, 14, 26; 4:4-7; Eph. 2:4-10; Col. 1:13, 14; Titus
3:3-7; Heb. 8:7-12; 1 Peter 1:23; 2:21, 22; 2 Peter 1:3, 4; Rev. 13:8.)

SHARON SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST CHURCH
Welcome to our Guests:
We know that life is full of distractions and priorities often get lost in the shuffle,
but it’s no accident that you’re with us today. We believe God has directed our
paths to intersect. We are blessed by your visit and so glad you’re here.
Our prayer is that you experience the Spirit of God here today and are uplifted,
encouraged and renewed.
We are glad you’ve joined us whether you’re thinking, praying, searching and / or
hoping for a place to belong, we again say – WELCOME!
Why is church attendance / going to church important?"
The Bible tells us we need to attend church so we can worship God with other
believers and be taught His Word for our spiritual growth. The early church
“devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking
of bread and to prayer” (Acts 2:42). We should follow that example of devotion—
and to the same things. Back then, they had no designated church building, but
“every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke
bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts” (Acts 2:46).
Wherever the meeting takes place, believers thrive on fellowship with other
believers and the teaching of God’s Word.
“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. John 17:21-23
