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.
11. Growing in Christ
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.

“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
