A Love Relationship with God

About Us

The Maranatha family is part of the Seventh-Day Adventist world-wide family of believers.  But  WHO ARE WE and WHAT DO WE BELIEVE??

Seventh-day Adventists rejoice in the privilege of knowing Jesus Christ, becoming more like Him, and serving other, as He did.  The heart of our mission is to encourage others with the hope found in experiencing a personal relationship with a living God and loving Savior, and to nurture them in preparation for His soon return.

Adventists believe in one God, a unity of three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to Earth as a baby in Bethlehem and live a sinless life in accordance with the Fathers will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone. When Jesus returned to Heaven following His resurrection, He gave 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 to take His people to Heaven.

Seventh-day Adventists are Bible-believing Christians who base faith, hope and the future in Jesus Christ. The name ‘Seventh-day’ indicates our adherence to the biblical Sabbath, while ‘Adventist’ means we anticipate the promise return of Christ.We 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.

Every Sabbath, from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday, Adventists enjoy a 24-hour Sabbath rest from work and school to join family and fellow believers in worship, fellowship, prayer and communion with God.  Adventists believe the Sabbath has been given by a gracious God to help further develop a relationship with Jesus.

We believe n healthy families for eternity. Because of this belief, we encourage families to make Christ the center of their homes, educate people on their roles as disciple-makers, equip families to embrace and practice the concept of “unity in diversity”, employ families so that each home becomes an evangelistic center, and empower families through the development and cultivation of leaders.

It is God’s desire that each of us may have an abundant life (John 10: 10), and that means a good physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being. That’s why we encourage people to experience a healthful abundant life and to share the divine principles for whole person health with individuals in their communities and a world in need.

Adventists regularly volunteer through Adventist Community Services (ACS) in community-based service centers, elder care, crisis care, disaster relief efforts, short-term humanitarian projects, and tutoring programs. Provide humanitarian and development aid in 131 countries through our Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA). Because we believe education improves quality of life, we operate more than 7,000 parochial schools around the world from elementary to university level.  To make a positive difference in the lives of youth, we offer

Pathfinders, a mentoring club with more than 1.4 million members.

To spread the good news and hope that comes from knowing Christ, we publish books, magazines and literature in 377 languages and produce radio programs that can be heard throughout the world.  In addition, the Church has a worldwide satellite television network to expand our ability to share our faith with others. Hope Channel can also be viewed on DirecTV channel 368 or at www.hopetv.org.

 We are deeply committed to improving quality of life around the world, Seventh-day Adventists can be found praying, praising, believing, sharing, learning, hoping, loving, serving, and
preparing for Christ’s soon return.
