For over 150 years the Seventh-day Adventist Church has sent missionaries around the world, John Nevins Andrews being the first to serve oversees.  The Church has a presence in more than 200 countries. Its commitment includes satellite television and shortwave radio blanketing the globe, a huge publishing program, thousands of schools, a large network of hospitals and clinics, and hundreds of overseas missionaries.

Adventists share a strong sense divine call to serve humanity.  Since the establishment of the Seventh-day Adventist Welfare Service (SAWS) in 1956, the Adventist Church has continually prioritized humanitarian aid and community development. Today, Adventist humanitarian work reaches into more than 120 countries and serves tens of millions of people every year.

Since the days when Uriah Smith advocated for religious liberty, the abolition of slavery, and noncombatancy for Adventists, the church has been actively involved in defending the religious interests of all denominations.  The Seventh-day Adventist church strongly believes in religious freedom for all people. A person’s conscience, not government, should dictate his or her choice to worship -- or not.

The following is a list of famous Seventh-day Adventist according to Adherents.com  Some were raised in Adventist homes, other are converts to Adventism, yet other are former members of the church.

What Others Are Saying About Seventh-day Adventists

World Life Expectancy: Live Longer, Live Better
"World Life Expectancy is the latest in a series of Educational Experiences developed by LeDuc Media. The Site’s purpose is to stimulate meaningful research on this important subject through leading Academic Institutions worldwide, while displaying the data in ways the less informed visitor can understand and use. Gathering meaningful Life Expectancy data from every corner of the Globe is an expensive and time-consuming process and with the help of our sponsors, we intend to continue to make it available for free. Our goal is to assist people everywhere in living longer and more productive lives. In the short time the site has been in existence, it has received over 1,000,000 Visitors from 148 countries and is being used everyday by major universities, government institutions, corporations and even K-12 schools in local communities. We are especially pleased to see the number of Military organizations using the site and are hopeful this trend will continue."
