 Central Seventh Day Baptist Church - WhytheSabbath
Seventh Day Baptists have longed believed in the holiness of the original Sabbath, as depicted in the Bible - from God's rest on the 7th day of creation to the day of Jewish worship to the day which Jesus worshipped on to the day which centered around 1st Century worship.
Scholars have argued that the day of Christian worship changed to Sunday in the 2nd Century, as Christians wished to separate their identity from the Jews.  Others credit Constantine with the change as he wished to coincide Christian worship with the worship of the sun god. 
Whatever reason for the change, Seventh Day Baptists longed believed in the blessedness of the original Sabbath, and have applied it to their lives.  It truly is different.  But doesn't God call us all as Christians to be different?
