Seventh-day Adventists accept the value of science and seek to understand science, and also accept and seek to understand Scripture. Since its beginning, the church has a history of searching for the appropriate interaction between these two sources.

​The Church Manual describes the governance, operations, and functions of the local church. It covers organization, authority, the function of pastors and other church employees, how to organize or dissolve churches, how to become members, church discipline, the role of officers, church structure and departments, elections, services, and other meetings, including but not limited to the church board, finance, along with standards of Christian living, marriage, divorce, remarriage, and a list of fundamental beliefs. The current edition (voted in 2015 and published in 2016) presents all of this information in a 227 pages book.

Ellen White’s book Steps to Christ holds a special place in Adventist history and is one of the most translated books of all times by any author. The book was published in 1892 by Fleming H. Revell Publishing Company in Chicago, Illinois.

​“Sunnyside” was the home where Ellen White lived from 1895 to 1900 in Cooranbong, N.S.W., Australia.

​Seventh-day Adventists early on experienced the need for financial support of those working in gospel ministry. Prior to the formal organization of the church, they developed a plan of systematic giving. After more than one and a half decades, they eventually adopted the biblical tithing plan of Malachi 3 that aided in the dissemination of the Adventist message to all parts of the world.

​The Ministry of Healing, published in 1905, is considered Ellen White’s most comprehensive work on health and healthful living. The book is also a representation of the Seventh-day Adventist philosophy of health.

Building on different interpretative traditions, there have been two major views among Seventh-day Adventists on the number of the beast (the number 666) in Revelation 13:17, 18. While there are valid reasons to interpret it as the papal title Vicarius Filii Dei, as several Seventh-day Adventist writers have done over the years, others have viewed it as a triple six indicative of a Satanic trinity.

​Juan Carlos Viera served variously as pastor, evangelist, church administrator, writer, and translator.

​Mary (Kelsey) White, the first wife of William C. White, served as an editor, treasurer, and missionary.
