“Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.”
—1 Corinthians 1:10
Unity In Truth is a resource for true Seventh-day Adventists who love God and love the church. We at Unity In Truth love our church, and we are concerned about issues in the church. Are you concerned too?
Are you concerned about things you see happening within your local church, school, university, conference, union and our North American Division?
Do you see actions taking place, sermons being preached, lectures being given, articles being published, classes being taught, and new approaches to interpreting Scripture being endorsed that do not support the Biblical beliefs and values of the Seventh-day Adventist Church?
Are you troubled by messages given by some church leaders and well-known and respected individuals that undermine the world church, its teachings and structure—especially the authority and decisions made by the General Conference in world session?
Do you have a passion for evangelism but are discouraged in trying to bring new people into churches which are acting contrary to the Bible and our established positions and beliefs as a church?
Are you surprised that those who support the world church are marginalized and silenced in local conferences, unions, and the North American Division?
Have you felt helpless wishing that you could make a difference in the church but have lacked an avenue to share with leadership whom you feel would care?
Have you wondered what you could possibly do all by yourself?
You have a voice!
And you are not alone. Separated we are weak, but when we as faithful Seventh-day Adventists members unite together in support of Biblical truth we can make a difference.
You may feel that you are “only” a lay person far removed from the decision-making process of the church. However, you have the right and responsibility to let your world leaders and lay representatives who serve on the General Conference Executive Committee know of your concerns and to ask for action to bring faithfulness to the North American Division leadership.
Unity In Truth is a resource that shares important information about the issues we face as a church and most importantly, gives you an opportunity to actually do something about it.
When apostasy begins to creep in, we can courageously and respectfully speak to our church leaders to tell them that we stand for our established Biblical beliefs as a church, and we do not wish there to be any deviation from them.
If enough of us lift our voices and take the appropriate actions, we will be heard.
In our SDA Church Manual, p. 58 it quotes:
“If there were no church discipline and government, the church would go to fragments; it could not hold together as a body.”
—Testimonies to the Church, vol. 3, p. 428.

A Kid's Plea About Women's Ordination
We discovered this excellent video only recently, although it was made just prior to the 2015 GC Session at San Antonio. It is a kid's plea to the Seventh-day Adventist Church in regards to women's ordination.
When presented with changes to the bylaws of the Montana Conference which would put it at variance to the world church in regards to women’s ordination, the delegates voted it down.
