About the Seventh-day Adventist Church
The Southview Seventh-day Adventist Church is a multi- ethnic, multi generational church. We are described as a warm church family that is eager to welcome guests. Our greeting staff is happy to help you find a place to quietly observe, or introduce you to new people and church leaders. Our many children's minstries make Southview a welcoming place for young families. Our congregation is full of people from many different backgrounds and life experience.
The Southview church chooses Saturday as our day of worship because we believe God designed life with a weekly blessing on the Seventh- day. We believe that this blessing can be traced from Creation, all the way through to our day in the Bible and history. We believe that the Sabbath is a day for worship, family, rest, and helping others.
What to Expect if You are Our Guest
The Southview church is blessed with gifted musicians and Bible teachers. In our worship services (9 & 11:00am CT) you will find a dynamic mixture of traditional, and contemporary music. Because of the gifted musicians in our church family you will sing Hymns, Gospel Songs, and some Contemproary Christian music all in one service with a great variety from week to week.

About Seventh-day Adventists
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 a part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.
