Seventh-day Adventist Church President Ted N. C. Wilson today released a State of the Church address in which he updated the denomination on its mission and membership growth and highlighted concerns, including lack of involvement and disunity.
In his address, Wilson went on to explain what he said were four “spiritual maladies” affecting some people in the Adventist Church:
• A loss of Seventh-day Adventist identity among some pastors and members.
• A “growing tide of worldliness” in many Adventist Churches.
• The “danger of disunity.”
• Spiritual apathy and lack of involvement.
“Brothers and sisters, I appeal to you, as I appeal to my own heart, to make a full, complete, total consecration to Christ,” Wilson said, before ending his address with a prayer asking God to bless Adventist Church members and others seeking the “truths of the Bible.”
