In Pursuit of Truth: Our Mission, Beliefs & Directives
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, gospel-oriented platform 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!
The Statement of Faith at Answering Adventism is a testament of our commitment to Gospel fidelity. Sourced from the historic Westminster Confession of Faith, our beliefs echo its enduring wisdom while honoring the supreme authority of the Bible. The Confession serves as a compass guiding our mission, underscoring our dedication to doctrinal transparency, and nurturing our passion for understanding.
Recognized as a doctrinal standard by the Church of Scotland and numerous Presbyterian churches globally, its influence extends to Baptists and Congregationalists, who have adapted its principles into their own statements of 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.
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.
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.
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 God’s truth. We stand with you on this path of discovery. May Christ lead us into all Truth, despite the costs.
