As of 2005, the Seventh-day Adventist Church had 12 million baptized members and about 25 million total members and adherents worldwide.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church is one of the world's fastest-growing organizations, primarily due to increases in Third World membership.
I saw that God had not changed the Sabbath, for He never changes.
But the pope had changed it from the seventh to the first day of the week; for he was to change times and laws [Daniel ].
As Matt Slick explains, “In other words, Jesus’s return was not to earth but a move into the heavenly sanctuary as is referenced in Hebrews 8:1-2.” The development of this doctrine, known as “Sanctuary/investigative judgment” (see below), influenced Joseph Bates and James and Ellen White, the founding pioneers of the SDA church. SDAs claim the Bible as their “only creed” and consider the movement to be “the result of the Protestant conviction Sola Scriptura—the Bible as the only standard of faith and practice for Christians.” They hold “certain fundamental beliefs to be the teaching of Holy Scriptures,” doctrines known as the 28 Fundamental Beliefs, which are organized into six categories—the doctrines of God, man, salvation, the church, the Christian life, and last day events. The 28 Fundamental Beliefs are considered descriptive of the church’s official position, but they are not prescriptive for membership.
A crucial part of its theology was that the Sabbath starts on Friday night and concludes on Saturday at sundown. Ellen White, one of the founders of the religion who, according to church doctrine, was a prophet, dwelled on the persecution of Seventh-day Adventists for Saturday worshipping in many of her writings, and repeatedly claimed that the Sunday Sabbath was the “mark of the beast”—that is, Satan’s doing.
In one of her books, she charged that the Roman Catholic Church had changed the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday and that this had led to Christians “worshipping the beast and his image.” (Such sentiments may have led some to believe the Seventh-day Adventist Church is anti-Catholic or anti-papal.) And in the 1800s, as some Christians advocated and some states enacted “Sunday laws” that made it illegal to do business on Sundays (in order to promote this day as a time for churchgoing), Seventh-day Adventists considered these moves as an act of persecution against their religion.
It now operates in 203 out of 228 countries recognized by the United Nations.
The Adventist movement has its roots in the 19th-century "Millerite movement," which centered on the belief that Jesus Christ would return on October 22, 1844.
