Adventism in China (AIC) 復臨中華 aims to develop a comprehensive and systematic account of the history of  Seventh-day Adventist movement in China. It has 5 components:
  1. Adventism in China Wikisite (AIC Wiki - this website) tells the stories of Adventist pioneers, church organizational entities, and related programs in China and to the Chinese people. It also traces the development of Christianity from ancient to modern China.
  2. Adventism in China Digital Image Repository (AIC DIR, aka AIC Digimage), is an online digital collection of historic photos and document images relating the Adventist movement in China. These images may be freely accessed by any interested individuals around the world.
  3. Adventism in China Publications (AIC Print) consist of hard copies of printed booklets or brochures on selected aspects of Adventist history in China. These titles are usually available on request. See the AIC Print page for more information.
  4. Center for Chinese Adventist Heritage (CCAH) located at Hong Kong Adventist College, houses physical artifacts and an online database relating to the history of Adventist Church in China. These resources are available to individuals doing non-commercial research on this subject.
  5. Adventism in China Research Network (AIC RNet) consists of a group of scholars from around the world, who share a common interest and collaborate to carry out scholarly research on subject matter relating to the AIC project.
