The Connecting Church is a member of the Seventh Day Baptists of the United States and Canada and the Seventh Day Baptist World Federation. This puts us in fellowship with sister churches across the country and around the world.
Seventh Day Baptists hold to a common statement of beliefs, one of which is the belief that the Sabbath was ordained by God on the seventh day, from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday. Because of this, our worship services are on Saturday morning, rather than Sunday. You can read more about this on our What we believe page, and scroll down to the statement on the Sabbath.
Our church heritage is rooted in the faith of those who came before us. A faith that came from their understanding of the Bible. And they lived that faith, in spite of the challenges those convictions could bring.
The first Seventh Day Baptist church in the U.S. was formed in 1671 by Baptists who became convinced that the Sabbath of the Bible, the seventh day of the week, was to be observed by Christ-followers. From the first SDB churches in England established in the 17th century, Seventh Day Baptists have spread across the U.S. and around the world.
