The Seventh-day Adventist church is a mainstream Christian religion with more than ten million members in over 200 countries. The Adventist church operates one of the world's largest Protestant school systems with a unique education philosophy and provides an array of humanitarian services around the world, including healthcare and an international development and relief agency.
What Adventists Believe
Seventh-day Adventists share common beliefs with many other Christians, including the concept of the Trinity and salvation through Jesus Christ. They accept the whole Bible as God's revelation and believe that the Ten Commandments express God's love, will and purpose.
The Adventist Church believes in medical ministry, operating more than 500 hospitals, sanitariums and clinics worldwide. To alleviate human suffering and to respond to disasters, Adventists manage the Adventist Development and Relief Agency International (ADRA), an independent humanitarian aid agency serving in 125 countries.
