We gather together each Saturday at 1877 Hooker Oak Avenue, in Chico at 10:00am for our Worship Service, followed by Discussion Groups and Kid’s Classes at 11:15am.
We also connect throughout the week in small groups, Bible studies, youth group and various outreach opportunities.
Chico Adventist is a place to Belong, Grow & Serve as we live out Jesus’ love. As we live into that mission, here are some of our guiding values.
We are Christ-centered
We believe in following Jesus and living out what He taught is the path to everlasting life now. We surrender our lives to Him and seek to remain in Him through His Word, prayer, and community
We are Biblically grounded
We believe the Holy Spirit has spoken through the Bible and continues to speak through it to our hearts and minds. We encourage each believer to follow the Holy Spirit's leading as they apply it to their lives.
We worship God with all that we are
We celebrate with gratitude who God is, what He has done, and what He is doing in our lives and our world.
We are growing
We believe God is seeking to restore His image in each of us, and we will partner with God as He seeks to grow and transform us. We will disciple our members and raise our children to whole-heartedly love God and one another.
We love each other
Belonging, care, spiritual growth, and accountability all happen best with relationally connected believers laying down their lives for one another.
We are sons and daughters of God, which makes us family
We believe that while we are each unique and uniquely gifted, we are one. We will love and serve one another even if we disagree.
We welcome everyone
We want each person to feel accepted, safe, included, and loved.
We are spiritual contributors not spiritual consumers
The church does not exist for us. We are the church and we exist for the world.
We are present in our community
We seek to share the good news of Jesus in any way we can, finding those who don't know Jesus and showing them God's love.

As a church, we believe...
In the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit • Jesus became a human being, died for our sins, was raised the third day, ascended to the heavens, there to make intercessions for us always • The gospel is good news; that through Jesus, God’s kingdom is now • In baptism by immersion symbolizing personal willingness to follow Jesus with our entire lives • Discipleship is a life of learning from Jesus how transforming grace leads to abundant life • Church is a group of disciples committed to following Jesus together, serving as the body of Christ, living out what it means to be a part of the Kingdom of God • Spiritual gifts equip the people of God and build up the body of Christ • The Holy Scriptures are the inspired word of God and are central to the transformation of the individual believer and the growth of the Church in its outreach, nurture, and leadership development • The seventh-day Sabbath is a Holy day for communing with our God, remembering and celebrating His work of creation and redemption • In the literal, personal, and soon coming of Christ • Humanity by nature is mortal and eternal life is a gift of God through Christ • In the glorious resurrection of the dead at the second coming of Christ where everything will be made new and sin will be no more • In Christians embracing spiritual disciplines such as prayer, study, simplicity, solitude, service, healthful living, confession, meditation, worship, guidance, gratitude, community, and celebration.
