Seventh Day Baptists are evangelical Baptists who hold to keeping the seventh day Sabbath of the Bible as sacred time.
From our first church in America, founded in Newport, Rhode Island, in 1671, until today, Seventh Day Baptists have been a Christ-centered, Bible believing people with traditional family values.
Two things are distinguishing marks of the Seventh Day Baptist church in North America. First, we are a Sabbath oriented people. Though we do not have any “rules” laid out for Sabbath observance, each family attempts to “keep the Sabbath holy” in ways that are appropriate for them. It is our love for God – not legalism -that motivates us to keep all his commandments.
