In Pursuit of Truth: Our Mission, Beliefs & Directives

Herein lies a comprehensive guide to our mission, beliefs, and clear calls to action to both Christians and Seventh-Day Adventists—a tapestry of faith, woven with facts, aimed at clarifying the divide between Christianity and Adventism. Whether you're defending your faith or questioning it, let this be your compass.

Our Mission is For God's Glory

The Gospel's Light: Defining the Mission of Answering Adventism

Psalm 115:1
Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!

Our goal is to empower Christians and engage Adventists. Started by a third-generation, former Seventh-Day Adventist, we’ve grown into a vibrant apologetics 501(c)(3) that’s clarifying the divide between Adventism and historic, biblical Christianity. Our mission is to demystify Adventism—unpacking it’s doctrines, unraveling it’s history, and underscoring it’s leadership through the prism of biblical Christianity. We equip Christians with knowledge and reach Adventists with the true Christ and His gospel—elevating His sovereign grace and freedom to save for His own eternal glory. Soli Deo Gloria!

Westminster Confession of Faith

Grounded in Tradition: Our Faith Manifesto at Answering Adventism

Read the Westminster Confession

The Statement of Faith at Answering Adventism is a testament of our commitment to gospel fidelity, but gives a transparent representation of our formal system of beliefs. With that said—we stand united with all Christians that believe in the Triune God and His gospel which are the foundations of the faith.

We embrace the spirit of this timeless confession while acknowledging its subordination to the only infallible rule of faith and practice for the Church—the Word of God.

Creeds We Affirm

The Pillars of Faith: Creeds in Historic Christianity

The Creeds serve as the bedrock of orthodox Christianity, uniting believers in a shared understanding of biblical truths. They distill centuries of theological wisdom into essential declarations of faith, capturing the teachings of the Apostles and the core beliefs about the Trinity and the person of Christ. By upholding the Apostles', Athanasian, and Nicene Creeds, we unashamedly affirm our commitment to the timeless and universal doctrines of Christianity.

Dubbed the Apostles’ Creed, this declaration of faith owes its name not to its creation by the apostles themselves, but to the encapsulation of their teachings within its concise framework. It presents their doctrine with majestic simplicity, unparalleled brevity, harmonious structure, and solemn reverence. Traced back to no later than the fourth century in its current iteration, the Apostles’ Creed holds a unique position. Above all other Christian creeds, it rightfully stands as a unifying, ecumenical emblem of faith.

The Athanasian Creed is named for Athanasius, a fourth-century bishop and prominent defender of Trinitarianism. The creed, which has Latin origins, declares key beliefs about the Trinity, specifically, the equal nature of the three Persons.

The Nicene Creed, also called the Nicaeno-Constantinopolitan Creed, is a statement of the orthodox faith of the early Christian church in opposition to certain heresies—especially Arianism. These heresies, which disturbed the Church during the fourth century, concerned the doctrine of the Trinity and the Person of Christ.

Equipping Christians

Stand Firm: Confronting Seventh-Day Adventism as Christians

Romans 1:16-17
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”

As believers, we are called to stand firm in our faith, ready to respond with gentleness and respect to those who question it. The teachings of Seventh-Day Adventism diverge from the foundational principles of Christianity and understanding these complexities is paramount to protecting our faith and reaching those caught in the Adventist web. We implore all Christians to equip themselves with knowledge, wisdom, and understanding, enabling themselves to defend the faith and effectively share the true Christ and His gospel with Seventh-Day Adventists. We seek to provide the resources that the Christian church needs to face this challenge head-on.

Reaching Adventists

Face the Light: Seventh-Day Adventists, It's Time for Truth

John 8:32 ESV
You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

If you’re a Seventh-Day Adventist, we extend a warm and sincere invitation for you to explore our resources. The prospect of questioning deeply ingrained beliefs can be daunting, but remember that truth is liberating. We encourage you to critically examine your faith and engage with our materials, comparing them with what you’ve been taught. Above all, we implore you to approach the scriptures with an open heart and mind, unafraid of the truth contained within. Our hope is that through this journey, you’ll experience the transformative power of the true gospel. We stand with you on this path of discovery. May Christ lead us into all Truth, despite the costs.
