Seventh-day Adventists are Bible-believing Christians who base their faith, hope and future in Jesus Christ and his soon return

The University Church is a community of faith and we welcome everyone to be a part of our worship and fellowship.

If you are a new student, new faculty or a member of the Maracas community, we would love to welcome you into the membership of our church family.There are 3 different ways you can become a member of the University Church:


The Seventh-day Adventist Church believes and practices baptism by immersion. Baptism is a symbol of that new life in Christ and commitment to ministry in the church. If you have never been baptized by immersion and would like to take that step, contact our church office who will direct you to a pastor who will meet with you and help you prepare for this important event.

Profession of Faith

If you have already been baptized by immersion in another Christian denomination you may become a member of our church by a simple declaration of your personal faith in Jesus Christ, and your desire to become an active member of the University Church. Contact us to begin the process.

Transfer of Membership

So you are coming to USC! We encourage you to transfer your membership to the University Church so that your stay at USC may be rewarding as you not only study or work within the campus, but also have an active church life. If you hold membership in the Adventist Church in another location, begin the process of transfer by contacting the church office and asking for the Church Clerk.
