Compared to previous attempts to interpret and interrogate Seventh-day Adventist worship from a systematic, missiological or pastoral perspective, this research has explored Adventist worship through the lenses of liturgical theology. Although largely rooted in a denominational and Free Church context, this study engages into critical conversation with influential Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant liturgical scholars. This study first explores liturgical theology as a valid enterprise to understand Adventist worship. It then traces the history of Seventh-day Adventist corporate worship before addressing its liturgical practices in detail. This diachronic and synchronic study of Adventist liturgical practices is then examined theologically. The study concludes with a reflection on the core organizing principle of this whole, the seventh-day Sabbath. Although written with a particular religious confession in mind, this study aims at enriching the current ecumenical liturgical discourse.
