Our view of humankind and society is based on the Christian Adventist faith.
Friedensau is located in the State of Saxony-Anhalt, about 100 km West to the German capital of Berlin. The Reformation has its roots here and many historic sites and buildings remain as monuments. The "Luther cities" of Wittenberg and Eisleben in Saxony-Anhalt are closely bound to Reformation history and the lives of Martin Luther and Philipp Melanchthon. Martin Luther (1483 - 1546) was born in Eisleben and also died there. He is buried in the castle church in Wittenberg, the very same place where he nailed his 95 theses to the church door in 1517. Friedensau Adventist University was founded as a "mission school" in 1899 with the personal support of Ellen G. White. Since then people have been trained and prepared for serving in positions all over the world.
