The Creator must have a people united in righteousness, being prepared for the soon second coming of the Savior (Zeph. 3:12,13; Rev. 19:7,8 and Rev. 22:14). This group of saints shall be "without fault before the throne of God" (Rev. 14:5) and fitted to be translated to the Heavenly City, New Jerusalem, without experiencing death. To call such a group of people into fellowship with YAHSHUA, the Christ, and to disciple them for speedy growth unto the full stature of Christ's perfect character (Eph. 4:13), is our reason for existence.
The Creation 7th Day Adventist Church holds no creed but the Bible, praying the prayer of Christ in John chapter 17, "that they all may be one" as the Father and the Son are perfectly one, and that all mankind might have the liberty of conscience to worship God in their own individual integrity.
The Church observes the Bible Sabbath Day (Exodus 20:8-11) as the memorial of creation and the sign of God's redemptive power to save erring mortals from sin and death (Eze. 20:12). This salvation is complete and sufficient to provide every repentant, believing sinner with continual victory over all known sin, and progressive victory over sins brought to their understanding through life experiences (1 John 3:6-9). Salvation is also the free gift of God by grace and through faith in
- 1) the atoning sacrifice and shed blood of the Son of God,
- 2) His victory over the grave by resurrecting from the dead, and
- 3) His intercession for sinners, acting as our High Priest in the Heavenly Sanctuary (Eph. 2:8,9).
The "Creation 7th Day" in our name represents the first Sabbath which God made for man (Mark 2:27) after He had finished all His work of creation (Genesis 2:2,3). The word, "Adventist," in our name signifies our belief in the soon literal second coming of the Christ to take His people home to the Heavenly Kingdom City, the New Jerusalem. The Creation 7th Day (Sabbath) designates more than merely a day; it suggests a personal relationship with the Creator which is to be so trusting and secure that no word but "rest" could better describe it. Some call this "new-birth" experience
"The Sabbath Rest Principle."
Our Church Covenant reads as follows: "We, the undersigned, hereby associate ourselves together as Christ's Church, being identified as '[local congregation name] Remnant Church of Creation 7th Day Adventists,' and in harmony with Revelation 14:12, covenant to keep ' the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus,' accepting His character as our heritage: 'YAH is Our Righteousness' (Jer. 23:6; 33:16)."
