A simple answer to the question “Who are Seventh-day Adventists?” can be stated briefly: the Seventh-day Adventist Church (or in Croatia, Christian Adventist Church) is a worldwide body of more than 10 million Christians who observe Saturday as the Sabbath and expect Jesus’ second coming soon. In more detail, one might say that Seventh- day Adventists are a conservative Protestant body of evangelical Christians whose faith is grounded in the Bible and centered on Jesus, with stress on His atoning death on the cross, ministry in the heavenly sanctuary, and soon return to redeem His people. They are known for their Sabbath observance, for their emphasis on maintaining health as part of religious duty, and for their mission activities around the world.

This article seeks first to narrate the history of the church, from its fore¬runners until the early twentieth century. A second section contains an overview of the church as it operates today, as well as glimpses of important issues affecting the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The bibliography of this article contains a list of sources used, as well as books for further reading on the history and operation of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
