Welcome to the Grand Forks Seventh-day Adventist Church!

Christ’s example forbids exclusiveness at the Lord’s supper. It is true that

open sin excludes the guilty. This the Holy Spirit plainly teaches. But beyond

this none are to pass judgment. God has not left it with men to say who shall present themselves on these occasions. For who can read the heart? Who

can distinguish the tares from the wheat? (Desire of Ages page 656)
