Who We Are

As a Christian church, we are a faith community grounded in the teachings of the Bible.We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is our guide for living a fulfilling lifestyle. Our name comes from our belief and keeping of the seventh-day Sabbath, and our anticipation in the soon return of Jesus Christ.

The Palmerston North Church was first organized on August 17, 1894, with fourteen members. Over the years, the Church has met in the three different buildings to cater for growth and expansion. The current Church complex was dedicated on April 7, 1984.

Today, our Church is made up of 300 people from all walks of life. You can expect to find people just like you. World-wide, the Seventh-day Adventist Church is a global network of over 20 million members located in 200 countries across the world. We also operate schools, hospitals and development and relief agencies as we believe in not only caring for the spiritual needs but also the social and physical needs of the community.
