The Port Charlotte SDA Church is part of the Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. Sabbath on the seventh day of the week—Saturday—is so significant that it became our name! While many of our Christian friends have their services on Sunday, we believe that the Biblical “Sabbath” is the day between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. We understand the Sabbath was established in the Garden of Eden and made holy as a commemoration of God’s complete Creation. In the Ten Commandments, God invites us to remember it to keep the Sabbath holy. We also believe that weekly rest is a great reminder of the rest we have in Jesus our Savior.
