Departments are functional subdivisions of the denominational work on various administrative levels of the church. They are arranged to promote and guide specific areas of denominational activities. In their respective territories, each union and conference (administrative units) has departments in the same or similar categories, which work under their executive committee with the aid and guidance of the General Conference and division departments. The structure of departments was created during the last major organizational readjustment of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in 1901.
Seventh-day Adventist beliefs are meant to permeate your whole life. Growing out of scriptures that paint a compelling portrait of God, you are invited to explore, experience and know the One who desires to make us whole.
