The nature of Christ, the nature of sin, the nature of death, the nature of man—all are different in Adventism. Come and learn about the beliefs that separate Adventists from Biblical Christianity.

Roundtable Groups meet weekly and discuss content that is particularly relevant to men. Click here to learn more and register.
