Adventism in Panama
Contribution to Book
Seventh-day Adventists, Panama
The Seventh-day Adventist Church (SDA Church) in Panama was established and later developed in three specific places and among two different language groups. The first congregations were established in 1901 among English-speaking people, in the Caribbean Coast, Bocas del Toro, as well as Colon City. Later on, as the Panama Canal was being built, the SDA Church extended toward the Pacific Ocean, in Panama City, where Spanish-speaking congregations appeared alongside the English-speaking ones. Around 1914, a third place was established, in the western side of the Chiriquí province, where some English-speaking members were successful in establishing and developing the SDA Church among a population that spoke Spanish. This present document will offer a short description of the effects or the results of the efforts of the first missionaries and will inform about the number of people that joined the church from 1901 to 2013.
