About Seventh-day Adventists
Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons--the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit--make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father's will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone. More >>
The Wright Seventh-day Adventist Church was organized in 1859, some four years prior to the organization of the Seventh Day Adventist Church. It was formed by Sabbath keeping believers in the area that came to know the Three Angels Messages of Revelation 14 as a result of the efforts of Elder Frisbee. In 1863, the Michigan Conference of Seventh Day Adventist was formed and the Wright Church became a charter member of the denomination. We trust that the spirit of the pioneers continues in our church to this day and we would like to invite you to worship with us on Sabbath morning.
The Wright church was a frequent site for conferences being held by the early church and in the summer of 1868, after a couple of extended conferences in Wisconsin and Iowa, the leaders in Battle Creek decided to choose Wright as the sight of the first Seventh Day Adventist Campmeeting. It was held September 1-7, 1868 on the property directly behind the current church building, on land owned by Mr. Root.
