The Creation 7th Day Adventists



The year 1988 marked an exodus from the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventist denomination by several dedicated and devout souls that were unified in the doctrine of “Victory Over Sin” (commonly known as “Righteousness by Faith”). This small group studied the history of the Christian Church and Adventism intensely, praying fervently for God’s divine guidance in their plans. The first congregation of CSDA believers was founded at Spring City, TN in early 1991, and the second assembly was established in the Fall of 1991 in Lakeland, FL, under the name of “Creation 7th Day Adventist.” These former SDA Christians heard a call to “come out” of the General Conference churches in response to the “loud cry” of the mighty angel of Revelation 18:1-4. It was their belief that the General Conference Corporation, by unifying with the United States Federal Government in their trademarked church name of 1981, had formed an “image to the beast” as described in Revelation chapter 13. It was further believed that through the prosecutions of various trademark violations (1986-1991) the General Conference had met the criteria necessary to become “Babylon Fallen” which necessitated a “coming out.” A position paper was published in the Fall of 1991 entitled Crucified Afresh!, which set forth the basic principles motivating this new movement.

Following 1991, the CSDA movement spread to Kansas where some souls organized as a local Church in Osawatomie, taking the name “Edenbrook Remnant Church of Creation 7th Day Adventists.” By 2001 a Church covenant was signed at St. Joseph, TN under the name “St. Joseph Creation 7th Day & Adventist Church.” Prior to this, a small group of CSDA believers had moved to a farm in Rienzi, MS where they established a health recovery outpost for medical ministry purposes.

The year 2002 saw the group in Rienzi purchase property in Guys, TN where they chartered “A Creation Seventh Day & Adventist Church,” pastored by Walter “Chick” McGill. McGill opened the first CSDA Christian Academy in 2003 on the Guys property as a free private educational opportunity.

Following the Guys developments, mission trips were made to various parts of the United States and Canada. In the Spring of 2005, CSDA work in Canada had its official beginning. By the Fall of 2006, a group of covenanted CSDA members were gathered in British Columbia under the leadership of Pastor Abraham Dyck.

The influence of Creation Seventh Day Adventists has been felt in many countries of the world, with scattered believers and sympathizers in India, various regions of Africa, Europe and Australia.


With the erroneous and wide-spread belief in the “theory of evolution” and the popular pagan error of growing in spiritual stature by human efforts (a form of “theistic evolution”) the 1991 Adventist believers, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, added — as the antithesis and rebuke — “Creation,” to the name “7th Day Adventist,” which had already been the heritage of their true faith. The identity of the seventh-day Sabbath had been variously obscured by “Saturday-keepers,” “Sunday-keepers,” and calendar reformers alike; hence, the “Creation 7th Day” in their name served to stress the seventh-day Sabbath of Creation, the day God rested from His creative process. “Adventist Church” in the name signified an Adventist group of “called-out ones” — those Christians expecting and looking for the imminent and soon second coming of Christ.

When combining the two sections of the name, it is proper to insert “and,” “(and),” “(&),” or the “moon symbol” (●) between “Creation Seventh Day” and “Adventist Church.” In order to represent the significant doctrinal difference of the New Moon between the General Conference brand of Adventism and the CSDA movement, the moon symbol is often employed with the ampersand in the center of it. When referring to the world-wide CSDA Church the name is rightly styled “The Creation Seventh Day (and) Adventist Church” and when signifying a single local congregation, “A Creation 7th Day (and) Adventist Church.” The designations “Seventh” and “7th” are used interchangeably. (see also: CSDA Logo)

In the same way that “Christians” are spiritual “Jews”, these Adventist Christians, comprising the CSDA body, are certainly spiritual Seventh-day Adventists because they keep the “Creation 7th Day” (seventh day of the Gregorian calendar — Saturday) as the Sabbath of the Creator, and they anticipate the soon, imminent and visible return of the Christ to transport them to the Heavenly City, New Jerusalem. They would, in good conscience, refuse to recant their former religious name “7th Day Adventist” without direct revelation from God. In respect of the most solemn warning in all of Scripture, prohibiting the worship of [agreement with] “the image of the beast,” (Rev 14:9-11) and reception of “the mark of his name,” the least obedience to the trademark law would endanger the souls of these worshipers by disobeying the mandate of the Holy Spirit. Refusal to obey man’s law, when it conflicts with God’s revealed will, is a matter of individual conscience. We must “obey God rather than man.” (Acts 5:29) The trademark law, a human enactment in conflict with the religious liberty principles that Adventists have historically upheld, is firmly resisted by Creation 7th Day Adventists as traditional Protestants for liberty of conscience.


The only Church Creed acceptable to those who believe in the Protestant principle of Sola Scriptura, or “The Bible Only” as the foundation for truth, is the prayer of Christ in John chapter 17: “That they all may be one” even as the Father and the Son are One.

The Bible alone is the standard for all faith — doctrine and practice.


To reflect the truth as it is in Jesus by “keep[ing] the commandments of God, and [having] the faith of Jesus.” (Revelation 14:12)

To share this experience with the world in both word and deed is their primary goal. By this exemplary Christian life of love and unity, the world will know that God sent His only begotten Son into the world that the world through Him might be saved from sin, suffering, and eternal death. The mission further calls Christians and non-Christians alike out of their self-defeating lifestyles and associations into the Sabbath Rest of Christ and the holy fellowship of His last visible body in this age — the Remnant Church of Revelation 12:17. Final judgment for this planet is imminent; the nations must be warned, and a people prepared to stand blameless before God’s Throne.


The “good news” of the gift of Christ’s life which, when accepted in the “new birth” experience, provides the recipient with a life of victory over sin and death.

This “Gospel” is seen by the Church to be expressed in its most succinct manner in Revelation 14. The “three angels’ messages” of Revelation 14, in combination with the mighty angel of Revelation 18, are intended to bring the light of salvation to the final generation in which we live. Out of this generation there will be “a people” which will stand “without fault before the throne of God.” (Rev 14:5) These will be translated to Heaven without experiencing death, as were Enoch and Elijah. The message is given the name The EliYah Message, since it is the fulfillment of the prophecy of Malachi 4:5,6 — to “turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers...” In this is seen the restoration of sound family government which ultimately forms solid church government. EliYah will restore all things pertaining to godliness. (Mat 17:11)


Church government is implemented as a congregational administration with an association of sister churches.

The local congregation is autonomous, but inter-dependent on other associated churches in much the way as a human body functions with its various systems.

To the sheep “scattered abroad,” we have made special provision for holding membership in The Association Remnant Church of Creation 7th Day Adventists. By this means, faithful souls scattered the world over may participate in finishing the work of righteousness on the earth. God’s providential blessing shall assist Creation 7th Day Adventist world evangelism through Christian order and unity.


While the only true Tests of Fellowship for the Creation Seventh Day Adventist Church are that the saints keep “The commandments of God” and testify to “the Faith of Jesus,” this section outlines a commonly held understanding of many practical aspects of Christian life, and serves as a useful guideline for the comportment of the born-again believer. “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.” (1Cor 10:31) “But as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct.” (1Pet 1:15, NKJV)

As stated above under “Church Creed,” Creation 7th Day Adventists have no creed but the Bible; however, they hold to certain well-defined points of faith, for which they feel prepared to give a reason “to every man that asketh” them. The following propositions may be taken as a summary of the principal features of their faith:


“We, the undersigned, do hereby seal ourselves together in covenant as the Church of Yah, who is the Creator of Heaven and earth (Psalm 68:4, Exo 20:11). By this action we declare our membership in the body of Christ, maintaining His absolute and sole ownership, supreme authority, supervision, and Providential guidance of this Church.

“Thusly, being identified as the Creation Seventh Day ● Adventist Church, and in harmony with Revelation 14:12, we covenant to keep ‘the commandments of YAH and the faith of YAHSHUA,’ accepting His character as our heritage and seal: ‘YAH IS OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.’” (Jer 23:6; 33:16)

“For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:20)

“Where Christ is, even among the humble few, that is Christ’s church, for the presence of the High and Holy one who inhabiteth eternity can alone constitute a church.” [The Upward Look, page 315]

“Those who keep God’s commandments, those who live not by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God, compose the church of the living God.” [1 MR, page 296, 1890]
