Who We Are
"The Seventh-day Adventist Church is all about saving lives. Two Adventists you may know are brain surgeon Ben Carson and Desmond Doss, the medal-of-honor-winning WWII army medic who refused to carry a gun, yet saved many lives. The 2016 hit movie, 'Hacksaw Ridge,' tells his amazing story.
"One thing you can find in more places on earth than Coca-Cola are Adventists. We take very seriously the Great Commission of Jesus, 'Go into all the world, and preach the gospel.' We are the fastest growing Christian denomination, with 22,000 new members a week. A new church opens every 3 ½ hours. We are also the world’s most culturally diverse church: no race comprises as much as 50% of the membership. Our churches, schools, and hospitals ring the world; our medical centers in Loma Linda and Orlando stand at the frontier of modern medicine.
"We follow the original teachings of Scripture, maintain high standards of diet and behavior, and observe the weekly Sabbath rest on Saturday just as Jesus and the Apostles did. We believe we are saved by grace, and that the human body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Because of our life-saving health practices, Adventists tend to live ten years longer than average.
"But saving lives is only temporary. What God really cares about is saving souls— bringing the best part of you into eternity with Him. This is a free gift, not an achievement. You cannot change yourself, but He can change you, and enable you to walk by faith within the limits He has given with a heart full of gratitude for the free gift of His love.
"If you are looking for a faith family, consider the Waldorf Seventh-day Adventist Church. We are a joyful-but-imperfect gathering of disciples of Jesus from many lands with a strong youth ministry. We invite you to join us in seeking a better world, here and hereafter."
— Pastor Tim Crosby (1954 - 2016)
We are part of the Chesapeake Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, a fellowship of churches in Maryland, Delaware, and portions of northern West Virginia. The Chesapeake Conference is under the auspices of the Columbia Union Conference, which falls under the North American Division – one of the 13 world divisions and two attached fields of the Adventist Church. The Seventh-day Adventist Church, which has over 20 million members around the world (as of December 31, 2016), is headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland, U.S.A.
