Chapter Summary

This chapter delineates the developments that led to the beginning of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Tanzania in 1903. The early development of this young denomination and major theological concepts that were of importance for its missionary undertakings is outlined. The character of the movement in Europe is investigated. Since European Adventists first brought this particular brand of Christianity to the then German East Africa, their peculiar identity reveals something about the background and characteristics of Tanzanian Adventism as well. That led to the establishment of the first Adventist mission in Tanzania. When considering the home base, the prospect for missionary success in Tanzania was relatively bright. Of course, European Adventism was young, exclusive, and small, and thus clearly a remnant empirically, sociologically, and in its theological persuasions.

Keywords: German East Africa; missionary undertakings; Seventh-day Adventist Church; Tanzanian Adventism
