 Matthew 11:28 – Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

We are part of a worldwide Seventh-day Adventist Christian movement with fundamental beliefs rooted in the bible and the bible alone. Seventh-day Adventists believe that God is concerned with the quality of human life and that everything – the way we live, eat, speak, think, treat each other, and care for people in our communities and the world around us – is part of His plan for the salvation of the world. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.

Our History

Back in the early 60’s the Seventh Day Adventist Church moved from Parliament Street, to number 5 Westbourne Road. The new church had to accommodate the growing congregation. Pastor Ray Kent was invited from Australia to run an evangelistic campaign from the Crispin Hall at the bottom of Mount Road. Pastor Alf Birch was pastor of Westbourne Road at the time. These meetings ran for a year and many people joined the church.

The Cape Conference offices at this time were also in Port Elizabeth, run by Pastor Denis Baird. They were situated up the road in a double-story old home, on the corner of Buckingham Rd and College Rd. Meals on Wheels was started and run from Westbourne’s little kitchen by Mrs Baird. A massive revamp was done in the 1970s led by John Ives. The entrance was changed to make room for the sound room at the back of the church. Much later the sound room moved upstairs and the room at the back of the church became the cry room. The church was re-carpeted and the blue curtains were hung. The words JESUS IS LORD were removed from the wall behind the baptismal font. The paving at the entrance and the three rooms off the hall were added at this time.

The organ was installed on the balcony but later the keyboard was moved downstairs. In the new millennium, the metal gates and fence were installed and the garden was revamped. Kabega Park, South Hills, and Upper Hill Churches grew from Westbourne Rd Church, so the church continues to grow.

Our Beliefs

Seventh-day Adventist beliefs are meant to permeate your whole life. Growing out of scriptures that paint a compelling portrait of God, you are invited to explore, experience, and know the One who desires to make us whole.

Seventh-day Adventists accept the Bible as their only creed and hold certain fundamental beliefs to be the teaching of the Holy Scriptures. These beliefs, as set forth here, constitute the church’s understanding and expression of the teaching of Scripture. 



Revision of these statements may be expected at a quinquennial General Conference Session whenever the church is led by the Holy Spirit to a fuller understanding of Bible truth, or if better language is found to express these teachings of God’s Holy Word. 

The expression of these concepts helps provide an overall picture of what this Christian denomination collectively believes and practices. Together, these teachings reveal a God who is the architect of the world. In wisdom, grace, and infinite love, He is actively working to restore a relationship with humanity that will last for eternity. 

The 28 Fundamental Beliefs can be organized into six categories of doctrine: God, man, salvation, the church, daily Christian life, and last-day events (restoration).
