According to Spectrum Magazine, the Oroville Seventh-day Adventist Church has recommended the NCC “vote a request that the General Conference Church Manual Committee rewrite Fundamental Belief #6”:
Creation is a topic of concern to the Oroville Church. It placed two agenda items concerning this topic on the agenda, including a recommendation that the NCC vote a request that the General Conference Church Manual Committee rewrite Fundamental Belief #6 to reflect the more specific language found in â€œAn Affirmation of Creation Reportâ€ and â€œResponse to An Affirmation of Creation.â€ In the second motion on this topic, Oroville suggests that NCC â€œinstitute structures for accountability that will ensure that the pastors in our churches, and the faculty in our educational institutions adhere in their teachings and lives to the Biblical principles expressed in the â€œChurch Manualâ€ especially:
A literal Creation in 6 days. . . The prophetic authority of the Spirit of Prophecy, and Biblically appropriate sexual relationships.
And the motion requires that the conference report back to the constituency on what action is taken.
