sabbath 4-7-18



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.)

“Stewardship Sabbath”

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
