The Biblical Research Institute (BRI) exists to promote the study and practice of Adventist theology and lifestyle as understood by the World Church. BRI was established by action of the General Conference Committee in 1975. The historical roots of the Institute go back to the Defense Literature Committee (established 1943) and the Committee on the Biblical Study and Research (established 1952). It consists of several Adventist theologians and staff working at the world headquarters of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

The Adventist Theological Society (ATS) is an international, professional, non-profit organization established as a theological resource for the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The resources of the Society are freely available to the world field, as Church leadership request theological assistance, training for workers, Bible symposia, and camp meeting speakers. The Society also engages in scholarly bridge-building with non-Adventist evangelical biblical scholars.
