Church of God (Seventh-Day, Salem, WV)
Early in the twentieth century, Sabbath-keeping Adventists, who had been led to reconsider the role of the Jewish law, came to the conclusion that the Jewish festivals were the holidays that Christians should keep, rather than what were seen as pagan-influenced holidays that developed in the early church, especially Christmas and Easter. Those advocating the Jewish festivals emerged as a group within the General Conference of the Church of God (Seventh-day). In 1933, when the majority rejected their effort to move the church to their position, they organized separately.
