Who We Are

“Unless I am convicted of error by the testimony of Scripture or by manifest reasoning I stand convicted by the Scriptures to which I have appealed, and my conscience is taken captive by God’s word. I cannot or will not recant anything. For to act against our conscience is neither safe for us, nor open to us.” — Martin Luther

I cannot go beyond the word of the Lord my God, to do less or more”
— Numbers 22:18

We are Seventh-day Adventists proclaiming the biblical understanding of the Godhead. 

This site was created as an invitation to all Seventh-day Adventists to re-examine the current position of the church with respect to its doctrine of Trinity, as it is taught and expressed within the church’s 28 Fundamental Beliefs. We challenge all Seventh-day Adventists to see if the doctrine is actually tenable and can stand the test of the Scriptures and the Inspired Testimonies-writings of Ellen White. 
Often times we find extreme arguments, coupled with partial evidence, being employed by both Trinitarians and Non-Trinitarians within Seventh-day Adventism to defend their views. This site seeks balance and accuracy by taking into consideration the totality of Inspiration, both from the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy along with an accurate assessment of the SDA Church history. This site is dedicated to providing contents that would spur impartial examination of the doctrine of Trinity as espoused by both the Catholic church and the Seventh-day Adventists, to arrive at a more clear understanding of the personality of God. Much of the contents on this website is devoted to furthering this Truth. This site is primarily intended for the Seventh-day Adventist community of believers.

“It is necessary that our unity today be of a character that will bear the test of trial. We are in the school of the Master here, that we may be trained for the school above. We must learn to bear disappointment in a Christ-like manner, and the lesson taught by this will be of great importance to us. We have many lessons to learn, and many, many to unlearn. God and heaven alone are infallible. Those who think that they will never have to give up a cherished view, never have occasion to change an opinion, will be disappointed. As long as we hold to our own ideas and opinions with determined persistency, we cannot have the unity for which Christ prayed.” — Review and Herald, July 26, 1892, par. 6, 7 • Ellen G. White

1. We renounce any labels such as “non-trinitarian”, “anti-trinitarian”, “Arian” or “semi-Arian” but we identify ourselves as Seventh-day Adventists who endeavors to hold the same belief that is consistent with what the church taught and believed in the last 25 years (1890 to 1915) of Ellen White’s life, as described in the 1889 Fundamental Principles of SDA.

2. We apologize to all to whom our actions have been apparent for anything that is viewed as disloyalty to the church of Christ which grew out of the Millerite movement and was formally established in 1863 as Seventh-day Adventist Church. 

3. We cannot violate our conscience on how we believe about the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit in light of how we understand the “HEAVENLY TRIO” as expounded by the Inspiration, both in the Scriptures and the Spirit of Prophecy.

4. We acknowledge that there are variants within the Adventism regarding the doctrine of Trinity and we implore the church to acknowledge the same and thereby extend flexibility and latitude on this issue. 

5. We fully acknowledge that the Bible does teach a “triunity” of Father, Son and the Holy Spirit but our view is not the same as some of the views held by the Church.

6. We pledge that member or not, office holder or not, we want to use our influence to build up the SDA church, focusing primarily on the Three Angels Messages and that which we hold in common.

7. We affirm that God the Father is the One True God of the Bible in the exclusive, quantitative sense (Jn 17:3, 1Cor. 8:6). This however does not necessarily negate Christ being God in the qualitative sense (Jn 1:1, Heb 1:8), for He is the eternal, pre-incarnate, begotten Son of God, having the same divine substance and attributes as His Father.

8. While we affirm the “personhood” of the Holy Spirit, we believe the Holy Spirit as the power and presence of God and of Christ which can function independently like a “third person” but is NOT a separate individual. 

9. We fully affirm Christ’s divinity in that He is ontologically equal with God the Father, for Christ is the Father’s natural/real pre-incarnate BEGOTTEN Son, NOT a created being, whom by the virtue of His begetting, inherited all things (same substance, authority, glory, power, appellations) from His Father.

10. We regard the writings of Ellen G. White to be inspired of God, in harmony with the Scriptures as the direct Testimony of Jesus Christ Himself-the Spirit of Prophecy (Revelation 19:10) and therefore carries with it no less divine authority than the writings of the Bible prophets. As It Reads use the writings of Ellen G. White, not to replace the Scriptures but only to affirm what is already revealed in the Scriptures and also to defend against those who use her writings falsely.


“The truths most plainly revealed in the Bible have been involved in doubt and darkness by learned men, who, with a pretense of great wisdom, teach that the Scriptures have a mystical, a secret, spiritual meaning not apparent in the language employed. These men are false teachers. It was to such a class that Jesus declared, “Ye know not the Scriptures, neither the power of God.” [Mark 12:24.] The language of the Bible should be explained ACCORDING TO ITS OBVIOUS MEANING, UNLESS A SYMBOL OR FIGURE IS EMPLOYED. Christ has given the promise, “If any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine.” [John 7:17.] IF MEN WOULD BUT TAKE THE BIBLE AS IT READS, IF THERE WERE NO FALSE TEACHERS TO MISLEAD AND CONFUSE THEIR MINDS, a work would be accomplished that would make angels glad, and that would bring into the fold of Christ thousands upon thousands who are now wandering in error.” Great Controversy 1888, p. 598.3 {GC 598.3} {DD 38.4}

“A great work can be done by presenting to the people THE BIBLE JUST AS IT READS. Carry the Word of God to every man’s door, urge its plain statements upon every man’s conscience, repeat to all the Saviour’s command, “Search the Scriptures.” Admonish them TO TAKE THE BIBLE AS IT IS, to implore divine enlightenment, and then, when the light shines, to gladly accept each precious ray, and fearlessly abide the consequences.”—Testimonies for the Church 5:388. {ChS 144.2}

“Whenever the study of the Scriptures is entered upon without a prayerful, humble, teachable spirit, the plainest and simplest as well as the most difficult passages will be wrested from their true meaning. The papal leaders select such portions of Scripture as best serve their purpose, interpret to suit themselves, and then present these to the people, while they deny them the privilege of studying the Bible and understanding its sacred truths for themselves. THE WHOLE BIBLE SHOULD BE GIVEN TO THE PEOPLE JUST AS IT READS. IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR THEM NOT TO HAVE BIBLE INSTRUCTION AT ALL THAN TO HAVE THE TEACHING OF THE SCRIPTURES THUS GROSSLY MISREPRESENTED.”—Darkness Before Dawn p. 7.4 {DD 7.4}

“THE BIBLE, JUST AS IT READS, IS TO BE OUR GUIDE. Nothing is so calculated to enlarge the mind and strengthen the intellect as the study of the Bible. No other study will so elevate the soul and give vigor to the faculties as the study of the living oracles. The minds of thousands of ministers of the gospel are dwarfed because they are permitted to dwell upon commonplace things, and are not exercised in searching for the hidden treasure of the Word of God. As the mind is brought to the study of God’s Word, the understanding will enlarge and the higher powers will develop for the comprehension of high and ennobling truth.”—Review and Herald, Sept 28, 1897; Mind, Character, and Personality vol.1 p. 93.2 {1MCP 93.2}

“God sends them light to undeceive them, but they refuse to take the Word of God AS IT READS. They accept error, choosing the lies of Satan rather than a ‘Thus saith the Lord.’” – Manuscript 19, 1894; Evangelism p. 239

 “The word of God, just AS IT READS, contains the very essence of truth.” – Medical Evangelist, Oct 1, 1909

“We are to take the Word of God AS IT READS, the words of Christ as He has spoken them.” – Signs of the Times, Aug. 18, 1887


“Those who are engaged in proclaiming the third angel’s message are searching the Scriptures upon the same plan that Father Miller adopted. In the little book entitled ‘Views of the Prophecies and Prophetic Chronology,’ Father Miller gives the following simple but intelligent and important rules for Bible study and interpretation: {RH November 25, 1884, par. 23}

“1. Every word must have its proper bearing on the subject presented in the Bible; 2. All Scripture is necessary, and may be understood by diligent application and study; 3. Nothing revealed in Scripture can or will be hid from those who ask in faith, not wavering; 4. To understand doctrine, bring all the scriptures together on the subject you wish to know, then let every word have its proper influence; and if you can form your theory without a contradiction, you cannot be in error; 5. Scripture must be its own expositor, since it is a rule of itself. If I depend on a teacher to expound to me, and he should guess at its meaning, or desire to have it so on account of his sectarian creed, or to be thought wise, then his guessing, desire, creed, or wisdom is my rule, and not the Bible.” {RH November 25, 1884, par. 24}

“The above is a portion of these rules; and in our study of the Bible we shall all do well to heed the principles set forth {RH November 25, 1884, par. 25}


“In a special sense Seventh-day Adventists have been set in the world as watchmen and light-bearers. To them has been entrusted the last warning for a perishing world. On them is shining wonderful light from the Word of God. They have been given a work of the most solemn import,—the proclamation of the first, second, and third angels’ messages. There is no other work of so great importance. They are to allow nothing else to absorb their attention.”—Testimonies for the Church 9:19 (1909). {LDE 45.3}

The last rays of merciful light, the last message of mercy to be given to the world, is a revelation of His character of love. The children of God are to manifest His glory. In their own life and character they are to reveal what the grace of God has done for them.” {COL 415.5}

The First Angel’s Message reads: “Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” Revelation 14:7

  • The verse reads, “give glory to him (why does it not say “them”?).” Does this singular, personal pronoun “him” refer to a unity of three co-eternal Persons—Trinity, or does it refer to a singular God?

  • The verse continues, “for the hour of his (why does it not say “their”?) judgment is come.” Does this singular, possessive personal pronoun “his” refer to a unity of three co-eternal Persons—Trinity, or does it refer to a singular God?

  • The verse further states, “worship him (why does it not say “them”?) that made heaven, and earth…” Does the singular, personal pronoun “him” refer to a unity of three co-eternal Persons—Trinity, or does it refer to a singular God?

If “him” or “his” in Revelation 14:7 is referring to the three persons of the Trinity, then you would also have to assume that the writer (John) believed that three persons make a single being (in order to have used the pronouns as he did). Suffice to say, this was not the case.

This is the same John who also wrote, “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God [referring to the Father], and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” John 17:3.

If one is to proclaim the Three Angels’ Messages, it stands to reason that he or she ought to know who this “God” is that we ought to fear, give glory to, and worship. This is to be the foundation for the subsequent angels’ (second and third) messages that would follow.

“The Three Angels’ Messages—The proclamation of the first, second, and third angels’ messages has been located by the word of Inspiration. NOT A PEG OR A PIN IS TO BE REMOVED. No human authority has any more right to change the location of these messages than to substitute the New Testament for the Old. The Old Testament is the gospel in figures and symbols. The New Testament is the substance. One is as essential as the other. The Old Testament presents lessons from the lips of Christ, and these lessons have not lost their force in any particular. THE FIRST AND SECOND MESSAGES WERE GIVEN IN 1843 AND 1844, and we are now under the proclamation of the third; but all three of the messages are still to be proclaimed. It is just as essential now as ever before that they shall be repeated to those who are seeking for the truth. By pen and voice we are to sound the proclamation, showing their order, and the application of the prophecies that bring us to the third angel’s message. THERE CANNOT BE A THIRD WITHOUT THE FIRST AND SECOND. These messages we are to give to the world in publications, in discourses, showing in the line of prophetic history the things that have been, and the things that will be.”—Manuscript 32, 1896. {CW 26.2}
