Seventh-day Adventist® Church

Bournemouth Seventh-day Adventist Church Jesus is the centre - The Bible is our guide - People matter



Our Church @ Study Class starts at 10am, every Saturday morning, and runs until 11am.

We passionately believe in education. So much so that the Seventh-day Adventist education system is the second largest Christian schooling system in the World. In local churches every Saturday (Sabbath) however, we come together to study the Bible. In the book of Proverbs, the teacher writes about the benefit of studying scripture:

"...if you accept my words and treasure up my commandments within you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; if you indeed cry out for insight, and raise your voice for understanding; if you seek it like silver, and search for it as for hidden treasures—then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God." (Proverbs 2.1-5 NRSV)

In this quarter our study's title is "Here We Stand: Luther on Romans".

In 1517, Martin Luther, a 33-year-old theology professor, posted his 95 Theses. And although he was seeking, at first, merely to refute a papal charlatan who was milking Luther’s flock by selling indulgences, Luther’s act of defiance became the spark that ignited the Protestant Reformation-and the world has never been the same since.

Of course, much has changed since that day in 1517. But what has not changed is the Word of God and the truths in the Word that gave Luther the theological foundation to challenge Rome and to deliver to millions the great message of salvation by faith alone.

Central to that foundation is our study for this quarter: the book of Romans. Luther wrote in his Commentary on Romans: “The Epistle is really the chief part of the New Testament and the very purest Gospel, and is worthy not only that every Christian should know it word for word, by heart, but occupy himself with it every day, as the daily bread of the soul.”-Martin Luther, Commentary on Romans, translated by J. Theodore Mueller (Grand Rapids, Mich.: Kregel Publications, 1976), p. 8.

Our Church @ Worship Service starts at 11:15am, every Saturday, and runs until 12:45pm.

At Bournemouth SDA Church we believe that what you adore, and what you worship shapes who you become as a person. By worshipping a God of power, of action and of love we hope to become better neighbours, friends and family to everyone around us.
