About Seventh-day Adventists

The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a mainstream Protestant church with approximately 19 million members worldwide, including more than one million members in North America. The Seventh-day Adventist Church seeks to enhance quality of life for people everywhere and to let people know that Jesus is coming again soon.

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 part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.


Coming to Visit the St. Helena SDA Church?

We offer you the fellowship of our St. Helena Family! Nestled in the heart of the Napa Valley, we're located right on Highway 29, also known as Main Street in St. Helena. From wherever you are, we'd be delighted if you could join us this coming Sabbath. We try to be an active and involved church, and there is a special place for you on our journey with God.

Health and Evangelism

The Seventh-day Adventist Church body believes that mankind was made in the image of God, and that God wants us to be healthy in body, mind and spirit.  For this reason, the St. Helena Church undertakes the teaching of several classes annually to enhance the lives of its members and the community.  Health classes include Depression Recovery, Lifestyle Matters, and the world-renowned CHIP program.  Spiritual classes include Sabbath Schools, Bible study at mid-week, prophecy seminars, and special guests throughout the year.  It is not necessary to be a member of the Seventh-day Adventist church to attend these classes.
