World Church

Seventh-day Adventists can truly be regarded as a worldwide family of Christian believers. The Adventist presence manifests itself in nearly every country of the globe.

The church is served through its administration of 13 world divisions and two attached fields. No matter where you find a Seventh-day Adventist believer, you will find them adhering to the ideals described by the Bible. Their lives will illustrate both faith in God and the church's commitment to the betterment of all human beings.

Our World-Wide Network

The world church is governed by a General Conference, with smaller regions administered by divisions, union conferences, and local conferences.


It currently has a worldwide baptized membership of about 19.1 million people.  As of May 2007, it was the twelfth-largest religious body in the world, and the sixth-largest highly international religious body.


It is ethnically and culturally diverse, and maintains a missionary presence in over 200 countries and territories.


The church operates numerous schools, hospitals, and publishing houses worldwide, as well as a humanitarian aid organization known as the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA).
