What religion is your church?
Victory is a member church of the global Seventh-day Adventist religion. The Seventh-day Adventist religion is a protestant religion which grew out of the Millennialist Protestant Christian denomination
that was founded in the 1860s in the USA. The name Seventh-day Adventist is based on the Church's observance of the "biblical Sabbath" on Saturday, the seventh day of the week. "Advent" means coming and
refers to their belief that Jesus Christ will soon return to this earth.
Seventh-day Adventists differ in only four areas of beliefs from the mainstream Trinitarian Christian denominations. These are the (1) Sabbath day, (2) the doctrine of the heavenly sanctuary, (3) the status of the writings of Ellen White, and (4) their doctrine of the second coming and millennium and (5) the state of the dead.

Adventists live modest lives, with a strict code of ethics. They don't smoke or drink alcohol, and recommend a vegetarian diet. Meat is permitted, but only following the Biblical commandments on
clean and unclean food. Missionary work is very important to the Church and all Adventists believe they have a duty to share their beliefs with others.
There are approximately 18 million Seventh-day Adventists worldwide (2014), with perhaps another 7 million people more loosely associated with the Church. No matter where you find a Seventh-day Adventist believer, you will find them adhering to the ideals described by the Bible. Their lives will illustrate both faith in God and the church's commitment to the betterment of all human beings.
