The Seventh-day Adventist Church is formally organized in Battle Creek, Michigan.

The Adventist movement originated in the Millerite movement begun by William Miller and in the past twenty years has grown from a small group to several thousand believers.

The Seventh-day Adventist Church is defined first and foremost by adherence to the Sabbath on Saturday. Other distinctive doctrines include the unconscious state of the dead and the doctrine of an investigative judgment. Otherwise the beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church are much the same as other conservative Protestant denominations.
