Let's Unite in Christ!

In the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the United States there are church conferences that are organized on the basis of ethnicity.
For example, predominantly white churches in the state of Michigan belong to the Michigan Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
Predominantly black churches in the state of Michigan belong to the Lake Region Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
But what if instead we chose to organize churches and conferences based upon the unity Jesus prayed for in John 17—“that they may be one as We are one”?
Changing long-held customs and practice is always a difficult undertaking. But the Holy Spirit in the Book of Acts has shown Himself well able to guide the minds and decisions of leaders to make radical change for the growth of Christ’s Kingdom and the triumph of His love.
Adding your name to the list will speak loudly to the church that it is high time we all come together “on the basis of love” (Philemon 9) and model to society the unity that only Christ can bring.
Let's unite in Christ and let Him begin “a new thing” (Isaiah 43:19/44:3).
