World Olivet Assembly (WOA) is a global gathering of evangelical churches and para-church organizations existing for the advancement of world mission. The organization is structured through regional and national chapters working together with several global partners.
The assembly first began in 2000 as a loose association of world evangelical bodies formed by alumni of Olivet Theological College and Seminary. The network's development culminated in the inauguration of the World Olivet Assembly in 2007.
WOA exists to promote unity within the evangelical church and the greater body of Christ through providing a platform for shared dialogue, ideas and resources. Through its network, WOA wishes to strengthen the church with fresh vision and empower it to pursue God's Kingdom and righteousness with greater fervency and passion.
The word signifies the location where our Lord Jesus Christ was ascended into heaven. (Act 1:12) It was also the gathering place in Jerusalem where Jesus would teach his disciples, including the Olivet Discourse.
World Olivet Assembly finds its purpose in proclaiming of God’s word, helping others come to faith in Jesus Christ, and seeking fulfillment of the Great Commission that the Lord had entrusted to all believers. We are committed to bring unity among the body of Christ centered upon evangelical values and traditions transpired from the Bible.
We believe in the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy; and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe in One God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in Our Lord Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His mediatorial work, and His Personal return in power and glory.
We believe in the Salvation of lost and sinful man through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ by faith apart from works, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
We believe in The Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the Unity of the Spirit of all true believers, the Church, the Body of Christ.
We believe in the Resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
