Creation: A Fundamental Belief
One of the benchmarks of the Seventh-day Adventist name and mission is a focus on worshipping the Creator. In its simple consensus statement, the world church includes the following as part of 28 fundamental beliefs:
God is the Creator of all things, and has revealed in Scripture the authentic account of His creative activity. In six days the Lord made the heaven and the earth and all living things upon the earth, and rested on the seventh day of that first week. Thus He established the Sabbath as a perpetual memorial of His completed creative work. The first man and woman were made in the image of God as the crowning work of Creation, given dominion over the world, and charged with responsibility to care for it. When the world was finished it was very good, declaring the glory of God.
