The church is congregational in polity and, unlike the Seventh-day Adventists, holds services on Sunday.

What do 7th Day Adventist believe about Jesus?

Why do Seventh-day Adventists not eat meat?

What do Seventh-day Adventists believe about marriage?
A: The Seventh-day Adventist Church believes that marriage, “instituted by God, is a monogamous, heterosexual relationship between one male and one female.

While the SDA would advise against wedding rings as a costly, traditionally gold ornament, it does exercise common sense and understand that in some cultures, including in the US, the rings are functional rather than ornamental, and so does not prohibit them.
Why can’t Adventist eat pork?
