The present volume, Seventh-day Adventists Believe..., is based on these short summaries. They appear at the beginning of each chapter. In this book we present for our members, friends, and other interested persons, in an expanded, readable, and practical manner, these doctrinal convictions and their significance for Adventist Christians in today's society. While this volume is not an officially voted statement—only a General Conference in world session could provide that—it may be viewed as representative of "the truth . . . in Jesus" (Eph. 4:21) that Seventh-day Adventists around the globe cherish and proclaim.— iv

A Word About the 27 Fundamental Beliefs of Seventh-day Adventists
Through the years Seventh-day Adventists have beenreluctant to formalize a creed (in the usual sense of thatword). However, from time to time, for practical purposes,we have found it necessary to summarize our beliefs.In 1872 the Adventist press at Battle Creek, Michigan, published a "synopsis of our faith" in 25 propositions. Thisdocument, slightly revised and expanded to 28 sections,appeared in the denominational Yearbook of 1889. This wasnot continued in subsequent issues, but it was inserted againin the Yearbook in 1905 and continued to appear through1914. In response to an appeal from church leaders in Africafor "a statement [that] would help government officials andothers to a better understanding of our work," a committee of four, including the president of the General Conference, prepared a statement encompassing "the principal features"of belief as they "may be summarized." This statement of 22fundamental beliefs, first printed in the 1931 Yearbook,stood until the 1980 General Conference session replaced itwith a similar but more comprehensive, summarization in 27 paragraphs, published under the title "Fundamental Beliefs of Seventh-day Adventists."The present volume,

In this book we present for our members, friends, and other interested persons, in anexpanded, readable, and practical manner, these doctrinalconvictions and their significance for Adventist Christians intoday's society. While this volume is not an officially votedstatement—only a General Conference in world sessioncould provide that—it may be viewed as representative of "the truth . . . in Jesus" (Eph. 4:21) that Seventh-dayAdventists around the globe cherish and proclaim.— iv
