A simplified chart of historical developments of major groups within Bible Students

Jehovah's Witnesses is a millenarian restorationist Christian denomination with nontrinitarian beliefs distinct from mainstream Christianity. The group emerged from the Bible Student movement founded in the late 1870s by Charles Taze Russell. The name was changed to Jehovah's Witnesses in 1931 to distinguish them from other Bible Student groups and symbolize a break with the legacy of Russell's traditions.
