Abstract

This chapter explores the topic of church unity through the eyes of Seventh-day Adventist co-founder and prophet, Ellen G. White. It notes the high degree of importance she placed on the pursuit of church unity before reviewing her understanding of the nature of church unity and the causes of disunity within the church. It then outlines the ways in which Ellen White understood church unity could be attained. The chapter concludes with implications for the pursuit of unity within the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the twenty first century.
