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.
24. Christ’s Ministry in the Heavenly Sanctuary
There is a sanctuary in heaven, the true tabernacle that the Lord set up and not
humans. In it Christ ministers on our behalf, making available to believers the
benefits of His atoning sacrifice offered once for all on the cross. At His
ascension, He was inaugurated as our great High Priest and, began His
intercessory ministry, which was typified by the work of the high priest in the
holy place of the earthly sanctuary. In 1844, at the end of the prophetic period
of 2300 days, He entered the second and last phase of His atoning ministry,
which was typified by the work of the high priest in the most holy place of the
earthly sanctuary. It is a work of investigative judgment which is part of the
ultimate disposition of all sin, typified by the cleansing of the ancient Hebrew
sanctuary on the Day of Atonement. In that typical service the sanctuary was
cleansed with the blood of animal sacrifices, but the heavenly things are
purified with the perfect sacrifice of the blood of Jesus. The investigative
judgment reveals to heavenly intelligences who among the dead are asleep in
Christ and therefore, in Him, are deemed worthy to have part in the first
resurrection. It also makes manifest who among the living are abiding in Christ,
keeping the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus, and in Him,
therefore, are ready for translation into His everlasting kingdom. This judgment
vindicates the justice of God in saving those who believe in Jesus. It declares
that those who have remained loyal to God shall receive the kingdom. The
completion of this ministry of Christ will mark the close of human probation
before the Second Advent. (Lev. 16; Num. 14:34; Ezek. 4:6; Dan. 7:9-27; 8:13,
14; 9:24-27; Heb. 1:3; 2:16, 17; 4:14-16; 8:1-5; 9:11-28; 10:19-22; Rev. 8:3-5;
11:19; 14:6, 7; 20:12; 14:12; 22:11, 12.)

What is TRUE Education?
True education means more than the pursuit of a certain course of study. It
means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the
whole being and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the
harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers.
It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher
joy of wider service in the world to come. (Ellen G. White - Education, p. 13)
“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

Sharon Junior Academy
Lake Region Conference Campmeeting
June 15 – 23, 2018
Campmeeting is upon us and we are praying for a
Holy Spirit-filled encampment. This year our theme
We are EVER LEARNING that with God, all things
are possible and that it is critical that we work
together to do what we can to provide excellence
in education for our children.
We are EVER RISING – but advancing on our
kneed – knowing that “Higher” than the highest
human thought can reach is God’s ideal for His children.
Godliness – godlikeness – is the goal to be reached.
(True Education, p. 12). We rise united for the cause of
educating our children to love Jesus, to appreciate the
value of their own lives as well as their neighbor and to
serve others with integrity and to the highest standard.
We are EVER COMMITTED to doing what God desires,
so that His will, promises, and miracles can be seen in
our schools, and embodied in our students, as we move
forward in faith.
