Seventh-day Adventist Church

Seventh Day Adventist

The Adventist Church was originally formed when William Miller prophesied the coming of Jesus (the Advent) in 1844. The Seventh-day Adventist, founded in 1845, defers from other Adventist Churches as they worships on Saturdays (the Sabbath) and follow the teachings of Ellen G. White. Their official doctrine is written in the 28 Fundamental Beliefs. Among their practices include: holding communion four times a year, abstinence from pork, shellfish and other foods prescribed in Leviticus 11 as "unclean", avoidance of alcohol, caffeinated drinks, tobacco and illegal drugs, and dressing conservatively.
