Launch of the Encyclopedia of Seventh-day Adventists Online

A brand new online Encyclopedia of Seventh-day Adventists is the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s first online reference work. The Encyclopedia currently contains over 2,100 articles on Adventist history, crucial events and themes, organizations, entities, institutions, and people, over 3,500 photographs, and a growing collection of videos. Hundreds of new articles and photographs will be added to the encyclopedia in the upcoming weeks and months, with thousands being added in the following months and years. The Encyclopedia draws on the expertise of hundreds of authors and editors worldwide, from many cultures and ethnicities. It is a great tool, not only for those seeking to learn more about the Adventist Church but also for those looking to witness to others.
