The Seventh-Day Adventists are a Protestant Christian church, which (as is visible from the name) puts particular emphasis on the seventh-day Sabbath and the soon-coming Second Advent. The SDA church had ten million members worldwide as of 1998.

Historically, the Adventist church derives from the Millerite movements of the 1840s. The denomination was officially organized May 21, 1863. (more history later)

Seventh-Day Adventist Beliefs:

"Seventh-Day Adventists accept the Bible as their only creed and hold certain fundamental beliefs to be the teaching of the Holy Scriptures. These beliefs, as set forth here, constitute the church's understanding and expression of the teaching of Scripture. Revision of these statements may be expected at a General Conference session when the church is led by the Holy Spirit to a fuller understanding of Bible truth or finds better language in which to express the teachings of God's Holy Word."
