One God, One Church

A New Approach to Fortify Membership Against the Anti-Trinitarian Movement

“Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.” James 2:19. Those devils do indeed tremble with rage when the missionaries of the cross dare to proclaim belief in this one God: “Let the missionaries of the cross proclaim that there is one God, and one Mediator between God and man, who is Jesus Christ the Son of the Infinite God. This needs to be proclaimed throughout every church in our land.” {Ms. 40, 1891}

The one God of the Bible has but one church: “There is but one church in the world who are at the present time standing in the breach…” {Ms. 139, 1901}

If we leave this one church—the Seventh-day Adventist Church—and start a new organization, as many anti-Trinitarians are now doing, we apostatize from the truth: “We cannot now enter into any new organization, for this would mean apostasy from the truth.” {Ms. 129, 1905}
