Seventh-day Adventist Christianity Religion Society and Culture

Seventh-day Adventism is a fast-growing international Christian denomination of over eight million members. Its origins in the interfaith Millerite movement of the 1840s. After the "Great Disappointment" of 1844 which marked the end of Miller's calculations of the date of Jesus' Second Coming, many left the movement. Those that remained--among them James and Ellen White and Joseph Bates--became convinced that Jesus had begun a special ministry in heaven. They remained expectant, however, for his soon return, as Adventists remain to this day. Christian education has also been a key part of the Adventist experience. The first network of Adventist-sponsored schools was organized in 1872, and has grown to encompass elementary, secondary, tertiary, and post-graduate institutions.
