Unity with Christ establishes a bond of unity with one another. This unity is the most convincing proof to the world of the majesty and virtue of Christ, and of His power to take away sin. {5BC 1148.3}

As we approach the last crisis, it is of vital moment that harmony and unity exist among the Lord's instrumentalities. (Maranatha, p 187)

Matthew 7:16 “Ye shall know them by their fruits.”

When we have entire, wholehearted consecration to the service of Christ, God will recognize the fact by an outpouring of His Spirit without measure; but this will not be while the largest portion of the church are not laborers together with God.--Review and Herald, July 21, 1896. {Ev 699.2}

 In Christ Jesus there is love, and those who are united to Christ will not have merely a tame, common regard as acquaintances, but true, sincere love for one another, because they are endued with the spirit of Christ. This drawing off from one another is not Christ-like, but it is after Satan's order.-- PaM 269.

My brethren are well aware that the Word of God presents the matter of church unity as a principle; those who are united to Christ by the truth of heavenly origin should have strong friendship for one another. EGW'88 1141, 1142. {PaM 269.3}

There are many precious truths, contained in the word of God, but it is "present truth" that the flock needs now. I have seen the danger of the messengers running off from the important points of present truth, to dwell upon subjects that are not calculated to unite the flock, and sanctify the soul. Satan will here take every possible advantage to injure the cause.  {ExV 51.1}

The cause of divisions or discord in the church is separation from Christ. The secret of unity is union with Christ.   {PC 153.3}

Differences of opinion must be yielded, that all may come into union with the body, that they may have one mind and one judgment.   {1T 324.1}

They made thorough work of repentance by confessing their own sins. Letter 98, 1902, p. 3

In the work of soul saving, the Lord calls together laborers who have different plans and ideas and various methods of labor. But with this diversity of minds there is to be revealed a unity of purpose.{CT 531.1}

Matthew 24:14   And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. 

Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.  2 Corinthians 13:11
