Our History

The Seventh-day Adventist® Church was born out of the Millerite movement of the 1840s when thousands of Christians searched for greater understanding of biblical prophecy. Among these believers was a group in New England that rediscovered the seventh-day Sabbath. They chose the name "Seventh-day" which refers to the biblical Sabbath, Saturday, ordained by God at Creation. "Adventist" refers to the return, or second advent, of Jesus Christ.

In 1863, the new Sabbath keepers officially organized into a denomination with 3,500 members worshipping in 125 churches. They soon began sharing their faith outside of North America, first Switzerland in 1874, then in Russia, Ghana, South Africa, Argentina, and Japan.

Today, as one of the fastest growing Christian Protestant churches, the Seventh-day Adventist® Church's worldwide membership has grown to more than 20 million in more than 200 countries. The Adventist Church operates the second largest parochial education system in the world, and operates the second largest religion-based health care network in the U.S.

The Seventh-day Adventist® Church Source of the Nile, English church was inaugurated on Saturday 9th April, 2022. It comprises about 20 permanent members. Notwothstanding, we receive lots of visitors who come and worship with us every Sabbath. These are predominantly students from institutions around Jinja City. We are a multi-ethnic community, a vibrant English congregation with a mission to fullfil the great commission in Jinja City.
