Welcome to Adventist Heritage

Many of us have had that experience. The car trip that just never seems to end! And undoubtedly that dreaded question has been asked, “Are we there yet?”

I can clearly recall one of those never-ending trips, full of childish boredom, when I finally burst out, “Are we there yet?” Unexpectedly, my father took our precious map and passed it to me in the back with a challenge: name all the towns I knew we’d passed, and then name each town as we passed through it. Soon I had a pretty good idea of our progress and was supremely confident that we were on the right track.

The heritage of the Adventist Church is a great teacher and just like a road map it can offer a clear path forward as we look back to where we’ve been. As Ellen White stated, “We have nothing to fear for the future, except as we shall forget the way the Lord has led us, and His teaching in our past history.”  Our heritage gives us confidence in our God, His faithfulness, His care, and His interest in each one of us.

So welcome to the Adventist Heritage website. We wish you every blessing as you take the time to revisit the past.
