Our History

In 2016, Bowmanville Seventh-day Adventist Church joyfully celebrated its 40th anniversary!

 

The Bowmanville Seventh-day Adventist Church was organized on June 5, 1976, following a series of meetings in the Bowmanville High School conducted by Pastor Lawton Lowe. The newly organized church had as its one goal to join with others in sharing the message of God’s love as demonstrated in the free gift of salvation.  For the first three years, through the kindness of the St. John's Anglican Church congregation, church services were held in their church working in earnest to fulfill this mission.

 

In Exodus 25:8, God spoke to Moses and said, "Let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them."  The Bowmanville Church family responded to this instruction and in February of 1977, approximately two and one half acres of land was purchased from Mr. Harold Robinson.  In the winter of 1977, the services of architect Mr. David Mills was secured and on September 14, 1978, a contract was signed with Gerrits Construction Co. Ltd. of Bowmanville for the erection of the church building.  The sod turning ceremony took place on September 18, 1978 and construction began immediately.  On May 26, 1979, the first services were held in the new church building.

 

Though more than 40 years have passed since the founding members launched out in their mission to establish a  witness in this community, the current members have not forgotten the purpose for which this church was established, namely to share God's love and the way of salvation with those around us.

 

Our Beliefs

We Believe that God Loves

God is love, power, and splendor—and God is a mystery. His ways are far beyond us, but He still reaches out to us. God is infinite yet intimate, three yet one, all-knowing yet all-forgiving.

 

We Believe that God Creates

From neurons to nebulae, DNA to distant galaxies, we are surrounded by wonder. Yet the beauty is broken.

 

We Believe that God Reedeems

Love. Harmony. Perfection. Once, all creation sang the same glorious song.

We Believe that God Inhabits

Jesus left His followers with an epic mission: tell the world of His love and His promise to return. Also, they should love people the way He loved them.

We Believe that God Transforms

God’s law in the Ten Commandments show us how to live and make clear our need for Jesus. Though the law shows us the path to follow and convicts us of sin, it’s about far more than just toeing the line.

We Believe that God Triumphs

From the Garden of Eden to the Tower of Babel, the destruction of Sodom to the Exodus from Egypt, God has always investigated before taking action.
