    History of Adventist Church

    Since the first missionaries came to our shores in 1898 and 1904, and established the first company of believers, God has richly blessed the efforts of laity and clergy in building up His kingdom in the State of Grenada. (See 100 Years).The growth of the Church has accelerated since we achieved the historic milestone of a local administrative unit on January 1, 1981 and Mission status in January 1983.

    The Church’s membership in 1981 was 4,426, presently, it has 10,633. In the last twenty years, the church has added 6,207 members.

    The number of congregations in 1981 was 23 with 5 ministers. Today there are 44 congregations and 14 ministers. As we look back at how God has led His Church, we can all exclaim, ‘To God be the Glory, great things He hath done!” and “The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad” (Psalm 126:3)

    Global History

    Around the world, individuals from many different faith backgrounds, including Baptist, Methodist, and Christian Connection, were preaching that the second coming of Christ was imminent. In North America, William Miller, based upon his understanding of Bible Prophecy, set a date – October 22, 1844 – for when the Lord would appear. Eagerly he and his fellow believers, known as Adventists, prepared for the appointed day. When it came and went, they suffered a great disappointment; the message had been sweet in their mouths but very sour in their stomachs just as Revelation 10:9,10 had foretold.

    Many of these early Adventists bitterly renounced their beliefs, but a small group decided to restudy the prophecies to understand what had happened. Gradually they came to a new realization: though Christ's return was imminent, a specific date could not be set. As they continued to study, more and more Bible truth came to light: the sanctuary message, the state of the dead, and the seventh-day Sabbath.

    Adventist Organization

    Realizing organization was essential to the successful spreading of these Bible truths. In 1863 this faithful group of North American Bible students officially launched the Seventh-day Adventist Church with an initial membership of 3,500.Today the Seventh-day Adventist Church is a worldwide movement composed of almost 13 million members in more than 50,000 churches. And daily more than 2,000 people become part of the Adventist family through baptism or profession of faith.
