For more than 50 years, those who call Kettering Seventh Day Adventist Church their home church have challenged one another to live out the values and ministry evidenced by the first church of Christ followers as seen in the book of Acts. Though we look forward in the near future to the return of Jesus at His second advent, in the present we recognize His call to support each other in love and together be His agents for good in our world. As a family we band together to live out our commitment to Christ as active participants in His mission through this local community of believers.
Live and Love Like Jesus.
“Lord, we commit to model the nonjudgmental love of Jesus, value relationships above rules, and together, grow into Christ’s likeness.”
We share a common vision
We believe all people matter to God and that Christ’s message and ministry through the local church is the hope of the world. Together, as one family of Christ followers, we are fully committed to living out this vision in our families, neighborhoods, city, and world.
We share a common community
We were created for deep, authentic relationships with God and other people — and we share a unique community with other believers as members of the body of Christ. We are also called to serve this world for God’s purposes — a mission that Christ invites all of us to join, as part of His church.
We share a common commitment
We believe spiritual growth is a lifelong process. Membership at Kettering Seventh-day Adventist Church means affirming five commitments that express our devotion to Christ and to one another. These commitments are 1) worship, 2) Bible reading, 3) prayer, 4) service, and 5) giving. They keep us all pointed in a common, biblical direction as we follow Jesus as members of this local church.
