A congregation of Adventists which observes the seventh day of the week as the Sabbath. Connected with this movement, begun in 1845,1846 in New England, were Joseph Bates, James White, and Mrs. Ellen G. White. At a conference in Battle Creek, Michigan in October 1860, they adopted the official name, Seventh-day Adventist Denomination. They believe that from sunset on Friday to sunset on Saturday should be recognized as the Sabbath. They advocate complete separation of Church and State, oppose all religious legislation, and ban the use of tobacco and intoxicants. They have three periodicals.
