About Henderson Highway Seventh-day Adventist Church
Henderson Highway Seventh-Day Adventist Church is a community of believers that believe in coming together to worship our Creator, loving each other, and setting aside time each week to rest in the assurance of God’s love. We believe in letting biblical principles determine how we do church and how we live our lives.
The history of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Manitoba started in the rural areas when colporteurs, Mr and Mrs C. D. Richards, began distributing literature in 1889. The first organized church was in Wakopa. The first convert is believed to have been Neil McGill who later became a minister. He apparently was given a copy of ‘Thoughts on Daniel and the Revelation’ which was originally sold in North Dakota and, through reading it, accepted the Adventist message. Neil McGill’s son, David, of White Rock, B.C. provided some information for the ‘Historical Highlights’, a history of the church compiled in 1970 by Mary and Georgia Neithercut and Elder and Mrs. Roger Ferris. ‘Historical Highlights’ and ‘The Lord is my Shepherd’ by J. Ernest Monteith, along with the recollections and experiences of many people, provided the background material given here.

What We Believe
Seventh-day Adventists accept the Bible as the only source of our beliefs. We consider our movement to be the result of the protestant conviction Sola Scriptura—the Bible as the only standard of faith and practice for Christians.
Currently, Adventists hold 28 fundamental beliefs that can be organized into six categories—the doctrines of God, man, salvation, the church, the Christian life and last day events. In each teaching, God is the architect, who in wisdom, grace and infinite love, is restoring a relationship with humanity that will last for eternity.
