The Sabbath

We believe that the Sabbath day, the seventh day of the week is a day for Christian believers to set aside the secular affairs of life and come together to worship, pray, and fellowship in Christ, our Creator and Redeemer. The Sabbath ought never become a burdensome legalistic requirement for the people of God, but rather a day of comfort and joyful rest that is in harmony with the spirit and not just the letter of the Commandment.

We believe that God created the world in six literal days and then rested on the seventh day of the week, the Sabbath day. It is the duty of the church in these last days of earth’s history to urge all to believe in the literal six day creation account as found in Genesis and to remember the Lord’s Day, the Sabbath, as set forth in the fourth commandment of the Decalogue.
