They embraced the doctrines of the Sabbath, the heavenly sanctuary interpretation of Daniel , conditional immortality, and the expectation of Christ's premillennial return.
Among its most prominent figures were Joseph Bates, James White, and Ellen G. Ellen White came to occupy a particularly central role; her many visions and spiritual leadership convinced her fellow Adventists that she possessed the gift of prophecy.
This message was gradually accepted and formed the topic of the first edition of the church publication The Present Truth (now the Adventist Review), which appeared in July 1849.
For about 20 years, the Adventist movement consisted of a small, loosely knit group of people who came from many churches and whose primary means of connection and interaction was through James White's periodical The Advent Review and Sabbath Herald.
By this time the denomination operated two colleges, a medical school, a dozen academies, 27 hospitals, and 13 publishing houses.
The foremost proponent of Sabbath-keeping among early Adventists was Joseph Bates.The conservative end of the theological spectrum is represented by historic Adventists, who are characterized by their opposition to theological trends within the denomination, beginning in the 1950s.They object to theological compromises with Evangelicalism, and seek to defend traditional Adventist teachings such as the human post-fall nature of Jesus Christ, investigative judgment, and character perfectionism.Miller's failed prediction became known as the "Great Disappointment".Hiram Edson and other Millerites came to believe that Miller's calculations were correct, but that his interpretation of Daniel was flawed as he assumed Christ would come to cleanse the world.
