What denomination is Amazing Discoveries?
We are a self-supporting ministry that supports the Seventh-day Adventist Church, but are not sponsored by the Church in any way. The name Seventh-day Adventist explains that we keep the seventh day of the week as the Sabbath, and that we are looking forward to the Second Advent or Second Coming of Jesus Christ. We also believe that Jesus Christ is the Saviour of the World, and that it is only because of His perfect life, death, and physical resurrection that we can have eternal life. We believe that we are saved by grace through faith in His atonement. We also believe that out of love for Christ and what He has done on our behalf, those that confess to love and believe in Him will want to model themselves after His character and follow His principles as outlined in the ten commandments. We believe that these commandments have not changed over time and are as relevant today as they were when they were written on tables of stone. We believe that the principle of loving God with all your heart, mind and soul, and your neighbor as yourself is simply another way of expressing those very commandments.
To learn more about what Seventh-day Adventists believe and teach, you can watch the Total Onslaught series by Professor Walter Veith on our media site: www.amazingdiscoveries.tv or find out more here.
We do, however, believe that God has faithful people in many other denominations, not just the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and that He works with each one individually. Although we do encourage people to visit a local Seventh-day Adventist Church, we believe that each person must be convicted for themselves by the Holy Spirit, and that God will tell each individual what He wants them to do.
Some people ask us why we do not mention our relation to Seventh-day Adventists on our website. It is not a matter of being ashamed, but it is a sad fact that many people out there are initially turned off by churches of any kind. Religion in the eyes of many is seen as negative. We want to present the truth of Jesus in a fresh way that does not put off people who are seeking. We do not want to be church peddlers, either. When the Holy Spirit convicts, He will direct people to the right church. Our job is to present truth and leave the consequences with God.
Our presentations are designed to preach Bible doctrine as we have been convicted and as we have personally studied it. We attempt to let the Bible explain itself. If it so happens that what our speakers present is also what the Seventh-day Adventist church believes, then so be it.
