About Us

Reaching Hearts Ministries is an evangelistic outreach of Reaching Hearts Seventh-day Adventist Church located in Spencerville, Maryland. We are a Christian community and would love to have you join our family. Seventh-day Adventists accept the Bible as their only creed and hold certain fundamental beliefs to be the teaching of the Holy Scriptures. (See Fundamental Beliefs.) Join us for Bible study, worship, and prayer.  

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. God made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby born of a virgin 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 sent 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 observe the seventh-day weekly Sabbath as a day of rest in obedience to the fourth commandment of God’s unchangeable Law. The Sabbath is God’s perpetual sign of His eternal covenant between Him and His people. Joyful observance of this holy time from sunset to sunset is a celebration of God’s creative and redemptive works. (Gen. 2:1-3; Exod. 20:8-11; 31:13-17; Lev. 23:32; Deut. 5:12-15; Isa. 56:6, 7; 58:13, 14; 66:23; Ezek. 20:12, 20; Matt. 12:1-12; Mark 1:21, 22; Luke 4:16; Heb. 4:1-11.)

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 health, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.
