Seventh-Day Adventists are a branch of the Christian religion and believe that Jesus Christ died for the sins of man. Adventists are different from many other branches of Christianity in that they observe the Sabbath on Saturday. Strict Adventists do not wear jewellery and do not eat pork or shellfish. Many Adventists are vegetarians and consumption of alcohol is discouraged. Decide if your beliefs and lifestyle are compatible with the Adventist church before you approach converting. As a Seventh-Day Adventist Evangelist, you will need to walk in the way of the teachings before you can begin spreading the Word.

Familiarise yourself with the Bible and the teachings of the Adventist church. Seek guidance from Adventist ministers and join a Bible study group. Bible study is extremely important, even after you convert, because Adventists follow the teachings of the Bible as law. A strong grasp of the Bible will be important for a Seventh-Day Adventist Evangelist's credibility when teaching others about the church.
Meet other Seventh-Day Adventists. Many churches have casual meetings and Bible studies that are open to non-members. Find a Seventh-Day Adventist church in your area and talk people who have converted. Schedule appointments with Adventist ministers to guide and support you through this crucial point in your life. Ask them about their struggles and successes with telling others about being an Adventist.
Accept Jesus Christ as your saviour. You must accept that Jesus Christ sacrificed himself on the cross for your sins and dedicate your life to following his teachings. This is perhaps the most important step to becoming a Seventh-Day Adventist Evangelist. The Adventists believe that "when you believe in Him and allow His teachings and His love to influence you, you will experience a positive transformation in your life."
Get Baptized. According to the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, you are not a full member until you are baptised. The Adventists practice adult baptism. The Seventh-Day Adventists state that baptising is a "symbol of a new life" and your acceptance of Christ.
Witness to others. Adventist Evangelists are dedicated to telling others about the word of Christ. After you have lived in the teachings of the Adventist church, examine how your conversion changed you for the better. Understand the teachings thoroughly enough to be able to explain them to other people who might want to join the church.
Lead by example. Evangelists who practice the teachings of the Adventist faith will be more influential when teachings others about the Word. People who see the change in your life after your conversion may be curious about how you made the change. Share your experience with the church and others will follow.
