about us


Our conference serves as the church headquarters for Seventh-day Adventist members living in Kansas and Nebraska with more than 12,000 members, 100 churches, 11 schools and 2 youth camps.

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. We believe that God created the seventh day Sabbath (Saturday) to rest and worship and believe that He invites each of us to have a personal relationship with Him.
