An open Bible, a cross, and theburning flame of the Holy Spirit is the symbol of the Adventist Church.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church was born out of a movement influenced by the writings of William Miller (1782-1849), an American Baptist lay leader. The writings of Ellen White, a second key figure, are also highly regarded by Church members. The movement, commonly called the Adventist Church, is regarded as a Christian movement with some unique beliefs and the Christian Bible is the key holy book of the religion.
The movement has a worldwide membership of approximately 15 million people in over two hundred countries and territories that are ethnically and culturally diverse.
This Church has always taken a special interest in health concerns, including playing a major role in health research.
Clergy are called pastors.
