The Miamisburg Seventh-day Adventist Church is part of a world-wide organization with more than 15 million members in countries around the world. We would be happy to have you join us in worship or at one of the church events listed on our calendar.
How we began... The Miamisburg Seventh-day Adventist Church began when a group of Kettering Seventh-day Adventist Church members envisioned a new church in the area of Sycamore Hospital. In 1979, this group arranged to meet on Saturdays in the St. James United Methodist Church building.
Officially chartered... Approximately one year later, on September 6, 1980, the church was officially chartered.
Let's build!... In 1987, plans were launched toward building a permanent church home located only a mile away on the Sycamore Hospital campus where it also could serve the hospital community and Sycamore Glen Retirement Community. At the June 9, 1996, groundbreaking, the church was challenged to "not be just another church, but a caring congregation, offering love and forgiveness as God does, with a work that will never be completed as long as there are people who need God."
Our new church home... We moved into our new church home on the Sycamore Hospital campus in April, 1997. Two months later, on June 7, 1997, all seats were filled to capacity at the opening celebration and dedication. (A second, smaller celebration took place in December, 1997, when the new padded pews were installed, providing sanctuary seating for 220.)
Where we are now... A warm and friendly church family of 152 who are active in the church and in the community, the Miamisburg Seventh-day Adventist Church seeks to continue a climate of hospitality where people can enjoy God's healing acceptance, be understood and appreciated, and discover their gifts in the service of Christ, in anticipation of his soon coming.
And now the children... In the belief that family is an essential focus of the Christian life, the church opened the Miamisburg Christian Learning Center in 1998 to provide quality Christian child care along with educational experiences for children ages 3-5 and to help meet the child care needs of the Miamisburg/West Carrollton area. Staffed by qualified, professional individuals, the day care program offers full-time and part-time enrollment and now includes before and after school care.
Dedication... On February 21, 2004, the Miamisburg Seventh-day Adventist Church shared the Church Dedication and Mortgage Burning with the Miamisburg community. Mayor Dick Church and Ohio Conference President Raj Attiken offered challenges to the congregation for the future.
About Seventh-day Adventists
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.
Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the 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.
When He returned to heaven following the resurrection, Jesus left the Holy Spirit to serve as our Comforter and Counselor. He promised to return to earth a second time to complete His plan of salvation 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.
