Membership in the Adventist Theological Society is open to any serious Bible student that recognizes the strength of working together to help touch Adventist leaders, pastors, theologians, and lay person with balanced and conservative Adventist theology on the cutting edge.
In designating membership, the Society seeks to preserve the professionalism of ATS while providing a context where any serious Bible student may feel comfortable. The emphasis is on joining together in the goals we share as students of God’s Word, not in the type of membership one holds.
The Society’s membership currently comprises Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary professors; religion professors from Adventist colleges and universities around the world; scholars from the General Conference Biblical Research Institute; world, division, union, and conference Church leaders; scientists, pastors, editors, physicians, lawyers, and other professionals; students within Adventist higher education and lay Bible students interested in biblical-theological issues.
