ADLA works with leaders of our church, such as elders, evangelists, and others, who believe in the mission of the church and are solid believers in the scriptures and the Three Angel’s Messages. We want to train members in deep theology and apologics to make sure they are “ready to give an answer” to anyone who asks about their faith” (1 Peter 3:15). Will you be ready?

THE NEED

REVIEWS

Jonsaba Jabbi

“Training with the Advent Defense League Academy has helped strengthen my faith and prepare me to meet objections. I feel confident that as I share my faith I can provide answers that will help people draw closer to Jesus.”

I took a one month training with ADLA and found the teachings to be challenging yet biblically solid. My faith and confidence has increased and I look forward to being able to share what I’ve learned with people I want to win to Christ.

Chen Columna-Hood

Just want to say that I have learned so much here from all angles, and everyone is so respectful and legitimate. I’m so thankful for finding this page and all the people here.

Dave Bass

ADLA has been a blessing and the instructors involved are bible based and Christlike. You can tell this ministry is passionate for training people as Christ’s apologists.

Tory StCyr

Did Ellen G. White Really Contradict the BibleOver 50 Times?

Critics have long accused Ellen White of contradicting the Bible on numerous occasions in her writings. Despite the various responses provided by the church, it seems the same old accusations keep resurfacing. Perhaps we have not gotten to the root of the matter. Is it possible that our critics have not understood some basic, fundamental Bible principles first? If we don’t deal with the critic’s presuppositions, the same accusations will continue to arrive. In this class, Pastor Kevin Morgan does just that, along with, of course, answering each supposed contradiction. Enjoy this training for free!

White, particularly 50 of the most popular ones you’ll find on the internet. Clicking on the video will open up a new tab to Facebook where this and other resources are located.
