[Question #7] The Adventist Church is part of the larger church community. What role do you see the Church having in building bridges among these diverse groups?

I have had the great privilege of meeting John MacArthur, Chuck Swindoll, David Jeremiah, Charles Stanley, James Dobson, Tony Evans, and the late D. James Kennedy, to name a few. I believe these leaders are very sincere about their convictions. We have built bridges by working together on certain common interests like protecting marriage. In our conversations, we focus on our universal desire to reach the lost and teach the pillars of Christianity. Having said that, I believe God has committed the oracles of truth to the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The Adventist Church is more than simply “another denomination”; it is a unique movement of prophecy, the remnant body into which all will be invited before the end. Jesus said, “And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd” (John 10:16, NKJV)
