Greetings! The Pastoral Staff, Officers and members of the Ephesus Seventh-day Adventist Church, welcome all to our official Web site. We are glad that you have been led to visit our site. We trust that your visit with us will be Spirit-filled, and you will be made stronger to face the rest of your day.   
 
Our mission is to facilitate connections with God, each other and the greater Birmingham community with the gospel message while fostering a nurturing environment where Christ-like characters are formed.
 
We’d love to have you join us on Saturdays for worship or Bible study! We’ll help you Get Connected with people, Go Deeper in your relationship with God, or Reach Out to those around you.  

What Adventists Believe

Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father’s will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone.

When He returned to heaven following the resurrection, Jesus left the Holy Spirit to serve as our Comforter and Counselor. He promised to return to earth a second time to complete His plan of salvation and take His people to heaven. Adventists are among the believers who look forward to that day.

Adventists believe that God is concerned with the quality of human life, and that everything – the way we live, eat, speak, think, treat each other, and care for the world around us – is part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.
 

28 Fundamental Beliefs [videos]

Seventh-day Adventists accept the Bible as their only creed and hold 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. Revision of these statements may be expected at a General Conference session when the church is led by the Holy Spirit to a fuller understanding of Bible truth or finds better language in which to express the teachings of God’s Holy Word.
