The Center for Adventist Research is a leading documentary collection for the study of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, its predecessors and related groups, from the Millerite movement of the mid nineteenth century to the present. The Center holds publications in all formats on all aspects of the Seventh-day Adventist Church--its mission, theology, and activities--including those from official and unofficial sources. The center serves as a Branch Office of the Ellen G. White Estate, the rare material repository for the James White Library and as the Andrews University Archives and Records Center.

Any conclusions, published or unpublished, drawn by researchers using Center for Adventist Research resources are the responsibility of the researcher and do not necessarily reflect those of the Center for Adventist Research, Andrews University, Ellen G.  White Estate, or the Seventh-day Adventist church.

White Issues Symposium. It will be held on Monday, March 25, 2013, from 9:00 a.m. until 4:45 p.m., in the chapel of the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary on the campus of Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan. Our speakers and topics this year are Jiri Moskala, James R. Nix, Theodore Levterov and Alberto Timm. A devotional talk will be given by Benjamin Schoun.

The day dawned cloudy and rainy, on Sabbath morning September 8, but the skies soon cleared over Battle Creek. Visitors to the Historic Adventist Villagelocated in Battle Creek Michigan enjoyed growing in their understanding of Adventist History through songs and stories. Elder Dan Jackson, President of the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists spoke for the church service.

You can help build the collection!

We are always looking for materials relating the history of the Seventh-day Adventist church. These include, among other things, books and pamphlets, periodicals, correspondence by prominent workers, memorabilia, and photographs of workers and institutions.
