The 29th fundamental belief*
We, as Seventh-day Adventists, affirm that we have room to grow. Our ideal is to live as closely to biblical principles as possible, but we recognize that, though the Word contains no error, our own interpretations of the Word are subject to human error. As part of the Remnant Church, it is our duty to continually study and correct our path. A ship’s crew cannot simply bolt the rudder and sails in place and expect the ship to carry them directly to their destination. Like good seamen, it is our obligation to consult our Instruments and keep our course as straight as possible. These are our Fundamental Beliefs as we best understand them currently. They are subject to change as the Lord leads.
