The Seventh-day Adventist Church (SDA) is the largest Protestant Christian denomination in the United States, with over 14.5 million members. It is also the fastest-growing major Christian denomination in the world.
The SDA Church was founded in 1863 in Battle Creek, Michigan, by Ellen G. White, Hiram Edson, Joseph Bates, and James White. The church’s distinctive beliefs include:
- The observance of Saturday, the seventh day of the week, as the Sabbath.
- The imminent Second Coming (advent) of Jesus Christ.
- The annihilationist soteriology, which holds that the wicked will be destroyed rather than eternally punished in hell.
- The importance of healthful living, including vegetarianism and regular exercise.
- The belief in the inspiration of Ellen G. White’s writings.
The SDA Church has a strong emphasis on education and missions. It operates over 10,000 schools and colleges worldwide, and it has a large and active missionary force.
In the United States, the SDA Church is headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland. It is divided into 10 divisions, each of which is responsible for a geographic region. The church’s largest division is the North American Division, which covers the United States, Canada, and Bermuda.
The SDA Church is a vibrant and growing denomination that is making a significant impact in the world. It is committed to spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ and to helping people live healthier and more fulfilling lives.
