History of the Seventh-day Adventist Church
The Seventh-day Adventist Church had its roots in the Millerite movement of the s to the s, during the period of the Second Great Awakening , and was officially founded in Prominent figures in the early church included Hiram Edson , Ellen G. Over the ensuing decades the church expanded from its original base in New England to become an international organization. Significant developments such the reviews initiated by evangelicals Donald Barnhouse and Walter Martin , in the 20th century led to its recognition as a Christian denomination.
The Second Great Awakening , a revival movement in the United States, took place in the early 19th century. The Second Great Awakening was stimulated by the foundation of the many Bible Societies which sought to address the problem of a lack of affordable Bibles. The spread of Bibles allowed many who had not had one to be able to purchase and study it themselves rather than just hear it preached, and led to the establishment of many reform movements designed to remedy the evils of society before the anticipated Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
Some of these movements held beliefs that would later be adopted by the Seventh-day Adventists. Forerunners of the Adventist movement believed that this event marked the end of the day prophecy from the Book of Daniel. As a result of a pursuit for religious freedom, many revivalists had set foot in the United States, aiming to avoid persecution. The Seventh-day Adventist Church formed out of the movement known today as the Millerites.
In , a Baptist convert, William Miller , was asked by a Baptist to preach in their church and began to preach that the Second Advent of Jesus would occur somewhere between March and March , based on his interpretation of Daniel A following gathered around Miller that included many from the Baptist, Methodist , Presbyterian and Christian Connection churches.
In the summer of , some of Miller's followers promoted the date of October They linked the cleansing of the sanctuary of Daniel with the Jewish Day of Atonement , believed to be October 22 that year. By , over , people were anticipating what Miller had called the "Blessed Hope". On October 22 many of the believers were up late into the night watching, waiting for Christ to return and found themselves bitterly disappointed when both sunset and midnight passed with their expectations unfulfilled.
This event later became known as the Great Disappointment. After the disappointment of October 22 many of Miller's followers were left upset and disillusioned.
Most ceased to believe in the imminent return of Jesus. Some believed the date was incorrect. A few believed that the date was right but the event expected was wrong. This latter group developed into the Seventh-day Adventist Church. One of the Adventists, Hiram Edson — wrote "Our fondest hopes and expectations were blasted, and such a spirit of weeping came over us as I never experienced before.
It seemed that the loss of all earthly friends could have been no comparison. We wept, and wept, till the day dawn. He later recounted his experience:. Edson shared his experience with many of the local Adventists who were greatly encouraged by his account.
As a result, he began studying the bible with two of the other believers in the area, O. Crosier and Franklin B.
Hahn, who published their findings in a paper called Day-Dawn. This paper explored the biblical parable of the Ten Virgins and attempted to explain why the bridegroom had tarried.
The article also explored the concept of the day of atonement and what the authors called "our chronology of events". The findings published by Crosier, Hahn and Edson led to a new understanding about the sanctuary in heaven. Their paper explained how there was a sanctuary in heaven, that Christ, the High Priest , was to cleanse. The believers understood this cleansing to be what the days in Daniel was referring to.
George Knight wrote, "Although originally the smallest of the post-Millerite groups, it came to see itself as the true successor of the once-powerful Millerite movement. However, Seeking a Sanctuary sees it more as an offshoot of the Millerite movement. The "Sabbath and Shut Door" Adventists were disparate, but slowly emerged. Only Joseph Bates had had any prominence in the Millerite movement. Adventists viewed themselves as heirs of earlier outcast believers such as the Waldenses , Protestant Reformers including the Anabaptists , English and Scottish Puritans , evangelicals of the 18th century including Methodists , Seventh Day Baptists , and others who rejected established church traditions.
Due to her influence, Frederick Wheeler, a local Methodist-Adventist preacher, began keeping the seventh day as Sabbath, probably in the early spring of Several members of the Washington , New Hampshire church he occasionally ministered to also followed his decision. These included William and Cyrus Farnsworth. Preble soon accepted it either from Wheeler or directly from Oakes. These events were shortly followed by the Great Disappointment.
Preble promoted Sabbath through the February 28, issue of the Hope of Israel. In March he published his Sabbath views in tract form. Although he returned to observing Sunday in the next few years, his writing convinced Joseph Bates and J. Bates proposed that a meeting should be organised between the believers in New Hampshire and Port Gibson.
At this meeting, which occurred sometime in at Edson's farm, Edson and other Port Gibson believers readily accepted Sabbath and at the same time forged an alliance with Bates and two other folk from New Hampshire who later became very influential in the Adventist church, James and Ellen G. These meetings were often seen as opportunities for leaders such as James White, Joseph Bates, Stephen Pierce and Hiram Edson to discuss and reach conclusions about doctrinal issues. The Present Truth see below was largely devoted to Sabbath at first.
Andrews was the first Adventist to write a book-length defense of Sabbath, first published in At the formation of the church in the 19th century, many of the Adventist leaders held to an antitrinitarian view, thanks to many antitrinitarian Christian Connexion ministers entering the former Millerite fold.
Ellen G. White never entered into debate on this issue, but made some very trinitarian statements in her book the Desire of Ages and transcripts of her sermons in the early s showed her identifying the Holy Spirit as a "Person" and one of the "three holiest beings".
Modern Seventh-day Adventists that hold to an antitrinitarian view are in the minority, but they argue that these transcripts are inaccurate stenographer reports that do not reflect her true teaching. Pro-trinitarian scholars in the Church point out that these transcripts were in her possession and she could have modified them at any time had they reflected an inaccurate version of what she said, given the perceived doctrinal importance of the topic.
In , James White stated in a clear way his view on the subject: "Here we might mention the Trinity which does away the personality of God, and his Son Jesus Christ Had they gone on, and onward, till they had left the last vestige of Papacy behind, such as natural immortality, sprinkling, the trinity, and Sunday-keeping, the church would now be free from her scriptural errors. Lemuel Sapian writes " This came about not by any internal conspiracy or meddling of third parties intent on diluting [the] distinctive [Adventist] message, but because the pen of Inspiration [of Ellen G.
White] took action—and men Beginning with William Miller's teachings, Adventists have played a key role in introducing the Bible doctrine of premillennialism in the United States. They believe the saints will be received or gathered by Christ into the Kingdom of God in heaven at the end of the Tribulation at the Second Coming before the millennium.
In the appendix to his book "Kingdom of the Cults" where Walter Martin explains why Seventh-day Adventists are accepted as orthodox Christians see pg Martin also summarizes the key role that Adventists played in the advancement of premillennialism in the 19th century.
That is they believed that Christ would come before the millennium Certain authors of the time considered premillennarians to be peculiar However the unique contribution of Seventh-day Adventists to this doctrine does not stop there. Seventh-day Adventists are post-tribulation premillennialists who accept the Bible teaching on a literal years in Revelation 20 that immediately follows the literal second coming of Christ described in Revelation In contrast to almost all premillennialist groups they do not believe in a year kingdom on earth during the millennium.
In Adventist eschatology Christ's promise to take the saints to His Father's house in John —3 is fulfilled at the 2nd coming where both the living and the dead saints are taken up in the air to meet the Lord see 1Thess — John, the author of Revelation, calls this moment the "first resurrection" in Revelation —6. Instead of a Millennial Kingdom on earth, Adventists teach that there is only a desolated earth for years and during that time the saints are in heaven with Christ See Jeremiah — On November 18, , Ellen White had a vision in which God told her that her husband should start a paper.
In , James, determined to publish this paper, went to find work as a farm-hand to raise sufficient funds. After another vision, she told James that he was to not worry about funds but to set to work on producing the paper to be printed. James readily obeyed, writing from the aid "of a pocket Bible, Cruden's Condensed Concordance , and an abridged dictionary with one of its covers off.
They sent the publication, which was on the topic of Sabbath, to friends and colleagues they believe would find it of interest. In , the fledgling movement finally settled on the name, Seventh-day Adventist , representative of the church's distinguishing beliefs.
Three years later, on May 21, , the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists was formed and the movement became an official organization. The first annual regional camp meeting took place September White — , while holding no official role, was a dominant personality. She, along with her husband, James White, and Joseph Bates, moved the denomination to a concentration on missionary and medical work.
Mission and medical work continues to play a central role in the 21st century. Under White's guidance the denomination in the s turned to missionary work and revivals, tripling its membership to 16, by ; rapid growth continued, with 75, members in By this time operated two colleges, a medical school, a dozen academies, 27 hospitals, and 13 publishing houses.
Enrollment in church schools from elementary to college was , students. And the enrollment in schools was 1,, students.
The number of students in SDA run universities, secondary and primary schools was 1,, Seventh-day Adventists participated in the Temperance Movement of the late s and early s. During this same time, they became actively involved in promoting religious liberty. They had closely followed American politics, matching current events to the predictions in the Bible.
Adventists argued that just as the rest of the Ten Commandments had not been revised, so also the injunction to "remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy" remained in full force.
This theological point turned the young group into a powerful force for religious liberty. Growing into its full stature in the late 19th century and early 20th century, these Adventists opposed Sunday laws on every side. Many were arrested for working on Sunday. In fighting against the real threat of a legally established National Day of worship, these Sabbatarians had to fight for their liberty on a daily basis.

Adventisme is een christelijke stroming van eindtijdbewegingen die in de negentiende eeuw ontstond, tegen de achtergrond van de Second Great Awakening revival in de Verenigde Staten en valt binnen de grotere beweging die Restaurationisme wordt genoemd. A close study of new documentary sources enables historians to know much more about the historical context for major developments in the Seventh-day Adventist understanding of the doctrine of the Trinity than what has previously been written. The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a Protestant Christian denomination which is distinguished by its observance of Saturday, the seventh day of the week in Christian and Jewish calendars, as the Sabbath, and its emphasis on the imminent Second Coming advent of Jesus Christ.

Loughborough gives as the date of the Bates-Hewitt encounter but other historians place the experience in see, for example, Arthur Whitefield Spalding, Origin and History of Seventh-day Adventists, Vol.
While in the CCOG, we have cited Jeremiah 10 and other scriptures as proof that Christmas trees are not appropriate for Christians, in the late s Ellen White had a different view: Seventh-day Adventists The Seventh-day Adventist Church is one of many Christian communities of faith. Thus, mechanical inspiration is usually associated with the theory that all the words of Scripture, even down to the Hebrew vowel points, were actually SDA Bible Commentary Vol 3. Let me just review some of those elements. However, from time to time, for practical purposes, we have found it necessary to summarize our beliefs. So Adventist history was a topic of special interest to him. Adventists believe the soul is not eternal and that it also dies with the body.
