Silver Spring, Maryland, United States

The US Supreme Court on Friday, June 26, released its decision legalising same-sex marriage across the United States.

While the church respects the opinions of those who may differ, it will continue to teach and promote its biblically-based belief of marriage between a man and a woman.

Even with the Supreme Court’s decision, the Adventist Church maintains its fundamental belief that marriage was divinely established in Eden and affirmed by Jesus to be a lifelong union between a man and a woman. 

While the church respects the opinions of those who may differ, it will continue to teach and promote its biblically-based belief of marriage between a man and a woman.

The Seventh-day Adventist Church believes that all people, regardless of race, gender, and sexual orientation are God’s children and should be treated with civility, compassion, and Christ-like love.

More information on the Adventist Church’s belief on marriage can be found on the church’s official website.
