Logo

Church Symbol and Meaning

The logo reflects the core values of the Seventh-day Adventist® Church. Its foundation is the Bible, the Word of God, shown open because its message should be read and put into practice. Central to that biblical message is the cross, which is also a central feature of the logo. Above the cross and the open Bible is a burning flame that represents the Holy Spirit, the Messenger of truth.

The Creation Grid

Creation Grid

The “Creation Grid” is a seven-column layout structure created by the General Conference. The first six columns can be filled with text, images, illustrations, patterns, logos, or anything else. But the seventh column, the Sabbath, is to be set apart as a reminder and visual celebration of the last day.
While the NAD recognizes and values the Creation Grid as designed and recommended by the General Conference through their Adventist Living Pattern System (ALPS), it understands that this grid may not be practical for many projects.
