About Seventh-day Adventists
Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons--the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit--make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father's will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone. More >>

About the Kimberling City Seventh Day Adventist Church History
The Seventh-day Adventist Church of Kimberling City, Missouri was organized in July of 1977. There were four families that met one another at the Springfield, Missouri Seventh-day Adventist Church and discovered that they lived near each other in the Table Rock area. They began meeting together on Friday evenings for Bible Studies. Elder Brad Williams, pastor of the Springfield Seventh-day Adventist Church, was asked by the group to have church service in Kimberling City. The Methodist Church was rented and the first Sabbath of January 1978 marked the first church service held in Kimberling City.
In May 1978, Pastor Williams accepted a call to serve as a conference evangelist. In June 1978, Elder Pack, pastor of the Springfield Church, continued to meet with the group on Sabbath afternoon for services in the Methodist Church. In March 1979, Pastor Lonny Smith came to us a district leader. In this same month the Kimberling City Seventh-day Adventist Church was organized by Elder D.E. Latham.
The present church property was purchased on March 26, 1980. On October 18, 1982 construction of the church building began. The contractor, with the help of the members, completed the church in June of 1983. Our first service was held in the new sanctuary on July 10, 1983. We were blessed with Pastor Chester Schurch and wife, Cindy, to lead us. Kimberling City was Pastor Schurch's first church following his intern-training under the direction of Elder Walter Brown.
On July 10, 1993 the Kimberling City Seventh-day Adventist Church celebrated its 10th Anniversary. For years the members have been planning and dedicating funds to enlarge their facilities. The eventful groundbreaking ceremony for this addition came on October 22, 1995. August 17, 1996 was the long-anticipated Sabbath of celebration and dedication. The two-story addition consists of a kichen, dining area, restrooms, two lovely children's rooms, plus an expansion area. Many blessings have been bestowed on the members of this church. When one has a headache, we all share the pain just as we all share each other's joys.
OUR PRAYER.... COME QUICKLY, LORD JESUS.
