In the heart of every human being on this planet, there is a deep yearning for something that we are born without. The God of heaven and earth, who desires that this longing shall lead us to the fulfillment of that desire, implants this yearning.This yearning is satisfied only in a friendship with one person alone, Jesus Christ.
Of course our enemy, Satan, realizes this better than we do. So he implants within our heart a distorted, twisted, and perverted picture of God's character; a picture of a God who is severe, arbitrary, unforgiving, a God whose love is conditional, a God whose love we have to earn. In short, a God who cannot be trusted.
Unfortunately, this twisted picture of God continues in most religions of the world, including sadly, Christianity. In 1844, God raised up this movement we call Seventh-day Adventism for the purpose of restoring the true picture of God revealed through Jesus Christ, to prepare the world for His soon return.
What a privilege it is to be a part of a prophetic movement with a mission of restoring God's trashed reputation! What a privilege it is to be a part of a movement that leads human beings to the "Desire of All Nations," Jesus Christ, the only one who can satisfy our deepest longings and restore us for eternity with Him.
We hold these truths to be self evident, that Jesus died for all humankind, and that the Baker City Seventh-day Adventist Church exists for the purpose of reaching this community with the Good News about God and His soon return. Our deepest desire is to pay whatever price we must to save the lost.

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.
Jesus, the Son of God, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with His 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 who find salvation through Jesus Christ.
Jesus promised "If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— John 14:15
He promised to return to earth a second time 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.
