The Amesbury Seventh-day Adventist Church is part of a global Adventist organization with more than 15 million members in almost all of the nations of the world. Our local congregation was founded in Newburyport in 1905, and we have been meeting in our present, historic building since 1948. Our mission is to proclaim the good news of the gospel to our community. We have a special burden for whole hearted Christianity based soley on the the truths of the scriptures, looking for the soon return of our Lord, Jesus, and living in harmony with His teachings, example, and commandments thru the Holy Spirit.
Our K-8 Amesbury Seventh-day Adventist School first opened in 1922 and has been in continuous operation since 1946. We have a very active community service organization, known as the Dorcas Ministry, which provides essentials to those in need and victims of disasters, both locally and internationally. In addition to Sabbath School and Sabbath Services (each Saturday, in keeping with Jesus' and Paul's examples in the Gospels and in Acts) we hold a weekly Prayer Meeting, which combines in depth Bible study with a season of personal prayer. On the fourth Sabbath of each month, Amesbury has created a new, informal afternoon worship and social gathering called Fresh Bread, which involves scripture, music, readings, personal sharing, other creative modes of expression and, of course, some freshly baked bread. We would be happy to have you join us in worship or at one of the church events listed on our calendar.
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. More >>
