Who We Are
Message from our current
President Dr. Abraham Jules
“Since the inception of our conference in 1945, our mission has been to punch holes in the moral darkness into which sin has plunged us, by vigorously engaging in the spread of the Good News of Salvation. That evangelistic fervor has catapulted our conference to be among one of the largest conferences in the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Learn more about the Seventh-day Adventist Church
The religious denomination known as Seventh-day Adventist had its rise about the middle of the nineteenth century. The name is based upon two of the distinctive beliefs they hold, namely, the observance of the Sabbath of the Scriptures, and the imminent, personal second advent of Christ.
In those years, not only in the United States, but in other countries of the world, many students of Bible prophecy became convinced that the second advent was drawing near, and this belief resulted in a great religious awakening, in Britain, in some countries of the Continent of Europe, and in North America.
How It All Began
The Negro members hip had grown to the degree that the necessity of making a singular appeal to this largest minority within the American population became apparent.
The number of people won to the church in communities such as Harlem and the Bedford-Stuyvesant area in Brooklyn was not commensurate wit the vast opportunities available in a city such as New York.
The existence of such a situation here and else ware was recognized by the General Conference and resulted in the organization of what came to be known as Regional Conferences.
