Welcome to the Santa Maria Seventh-day Adventist Church

Grace. Love. Truth.

Welcome to California’s beautiful Central Coast and to the Santa Maria Seventh-day Adventist Church’s website.

It’s my privilege to greet you and to introduce you to our wonderful church family, a diverse community of believers and followers of Jesus Christ.  We believe that God is interested in us and wants to bless every area of our lives. For that reason the Seventh-day Adventist faith seeks to nurture, grow and empower the entire person: body, spirit and mind.

If you have children, please check out our Bible-based weekly programs for all ages, and also our co-ed scout type ministry: Adventurers and Pathfinders. Please join us for social activities for all ages!

It’s my hope that you’ll experience the love of Christ in our church as we grow in God’s grace and prepare for Jesus’ soon coming!

Day 7 Verse: Luke 9:25-26 What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self? Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. Thought for the day: “WHY IS IT NECESSARY TO SURRENDER OURSELVES TO JESUS DAILY? Jesus said in Luke 9:23: “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” Jesus said that discipleship is a daily matter. To deny oneself means giving Jesus the control over my life. Carrying a cross doesn’t mean that we will have difficulties every day. Here is means: to daily deny our egos and to submit gladly and willingly to Jesus – just as Paul said about himself: “I die daily.” When someone carried a cross in Jesus’ day, then he had been sentenced to death and was going to the place of execution. So it also has to do with accepting difficulties, which arise from following Jesus.” Excerpt From: Helmut Haubeil. “Steps to Personal Revival.” Take time in your day to ask God to put to death something that does not let you live freely for Him. Start with something small. Perhaps it’s a favorite secular song, an app on your phone, or something you view daily.

Join us for 10 days of Fasting and Prayer (Feb 6. through Feb. 15

10 DAYS OF PRAYER AND FASTING

Day 10 Verse: 1 John 3:23-24 And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. The one who keeps God’s commands lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us. Thought for the day: “THE EFFECTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT When the Holy Ghost is in me, then He accomplishes in me what Christ achieved. Romans 8:2 says: “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” We can explain the “law of the Spirit” as the manner in which the Holy Ghost works in a heart completely surrendered to God. Only the Holy Spirit can bring to life in me what Christ achieved. E.G. White explains it well: “The Spirit was to be given as a regenerating agent, and without this the sacrifice of Christ would have been of no avail… It is the Spirit that makes effectual what has been wrought out by the world’s Redeemer. It is by the Spirit that the heart is made pure. Through the Spirit the believer becomes a partaker of the divine nature … The power of God awaits their demand and reception.” Thomas A. Davis describes this process as follows: “This means that even the effectiveness of Christ’s work for people is dependent on the Holy Ghost. Without Him everything Jesus did on this earth – in Gethsemane, on the cross, the resurrection and His priestly ministry in heaven, would be unsuccessful. The outcome of Christ’s work wouldn’t be much more useful than that of some big world religion or ethical leader.” “When the Spirit of God takes possession of the heart, it transforms the life. Sinful thoughts are put away, evil deeds are renounced; love, humility, and peace, take the place of anger, envy, and strife. Joy takes the place of sadness, and the countenance reflects the light of heaven.” Excerpt From: Helmut Haubeil. “Steps to Personal Revival.”
