First, we offer a refreshing friendship and fellowship of committed, loving people who care about you personally. The Ventura Seventh-day Adventist Church is devoted to your personal enjoyment of God. Jesus is our example in total devotion to the welfare of others.
Second, we enjoy fellowship through corporate worship, prayer times, and Bible Study in Jesus’ chosen time. In the following pages, you will discover why this is so important to us in terms of the Sabbath day. However, for now it is important to realize that this sacred time is a divine gift for you by which to renew and refresh your own spirit, and to renew your personal relationships with your family and friends.
Third, we create constant fellowship opportunities. These include our prayer times, in which we connect with the single most important person of all of time -- Jesus Christ.
Fourth, we expand our fellowship through ministries to the community. These include Community Services, Homeless Ministries, and Health Ministries. These also include informative meetings which explore the meaning our lives today in the light of the ancient prophecies of the Bible.
Finally, we have smaller fellowship groups for seniors, youth, and children. Whether you are a Senior, or a child, youth or a toddler, we offer you a place in which you are accepted unconditionally, to which you may belong, without fear or prejudice
