Who are Seventh-day Adventists?
The study of the Bible in general and prophecy in particular became the catalyst that brought the Seventh-day Adventist Church into existence in the 1840s. Yet, it was not until 1863 when Adventist pioneers organized the new denomination with 3,500 members worshipping in 125 churches in North America that the Seventh-day Adventist church was officially born. Today, the Adventist Church has over 16 million members in over 200 countries around the world. Adventists also operate the largest Protestant hospital and educational systems in the world in addition to operating publishing houses and humanitarian organizations.

What do Seventh-day Adventists believe?
Adventists believe that the Bible and the Bible only is the standard of all doctrines and the basis of all reforms. As a result, several key Biblical teachings compose the immovable pillars upon which Adventists build their entire system of doctrines, lifestyle practices, worship, and mission. These pillars are made up of the Sanctuary Doctrine; the Three Angels’ Messages of Revelation 14; the Sabbath; the Immutability of the Law; the Non-immortality of the Soul; and the Second Coming of Jesus.
