A research paper on the history of the trinity doctrine within the early Christian Church and within Seventh-day Adventism


This study is very large. It has 56 sections.


As the title suggests, it is a study on how the trinity doctrine was introduced into Christianity - also how it was eventually accepted into Seventh-day Adventism – albeit the latter is a modification of the original (orthodox) teaching.


Throughout the time of Ellen White’s ministry (1844-1915), also for decades afterwards, the Seventh-day Adventist Church was a non-trinitarian denomination. In other words, during this time period, the trinity doctrine was not a part of the beliefs of Seventh-day Adventists. The trinity doctrine was first voted into the fundamental beliefs of Seventh-day Adventists in the year 1980. This took place at the General Conference session held at Dallas Texas that year.
