World Church Affirmation Sabbath (WCAS) was established by a small group of laity convicted of the importance of affirming the Seventh-day Adventist Church – sounding a solid voice of support. The WCAS mission states:
World Church Affirmation Sabbath (WCAS) exists to affirm the leadership of the General Conference and the beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church around the world.
We affirm these beliefs in accordance with the teachings of the Holy Bible and
the writings of Ellen G. White.
We share this mission with like-minded Adventists who choose to stand for these beliefs and
share the Three Angel's Messages with the world; that the world may become of Christ convicted, to Christ committed, for Christ compelled.
The goal of WCAS is to grow the message of world church affirmation across the NAD and abroad, by encouraging, activating, connecting and educating laity in church involvement and support. It’s a wake-up call. Not an “out-reach” but an “in-reach.”
Guided by its 10 principles of action (see website), WCAS encourages convicted laity to go to the WCAS website at AffirmationSabbath.org for information on how to plan and host a WCAS event in your church. Contact people on this site will walk you step-by-step through the planning process of your own local church event.
Become an active part of World Church Affirmation Sabbath. Join your voice with WCAS, upholding the Seventh-day Adventist world church. The church is the bride of Christ, precious to His heart and worthy of our support and affirmation.
See you there!
