The fall event of World Church Affirmation Sabbath took place on September 22, 2018, in churches across the North American Division.
WCAS' stated purpose is support of the beliefs, governing processes, and voted policies of the worldwide Seventh-day Adventist Church at all levels. WCAS events occurred in several states.
I attended the program at Stateline Seventh-day Adventist Church, in Milton-Freewater, Oregon. Our site had about 100 people attending. Other sites reported between 33 to 160 participants.
The general theme for this World Church Affirmation Sabbath (WCAS) was “Who Shall Be Able to Stand?” and the event topics presented were:
Standing by a Purpose True
Warnings and Promises
When Michael Stands up
It was one of the most outstanding WCAS events I have attended, both encouraging and inspiring. There were three lay speakers. What? No big names to draw a crowd? The fact is that WCAS uses lay speakers because it is crucial for the laity to become involved and active in all aspects of Seventh-day Adventism.
The book of Acts demonstrates that the laity must be active in presenting the message and mission, active in methods of church governance and in support of leadership. WCAS is a lay-led organization seeking to “press together” for positive, Biblical change in collaboration with like-minded Seventh-day Adventists. We believe that, “knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed,” Romans 13:11 (emphasis mine).
If you have felt you are all alone, don’t you believe it! There are loyal lay members all across the North American Division who want to network with you. Together, we find courage to be faithful as we prepare for the Lord’s soon return. Together, we stand in support of the God-inspired organizational structure that comprises the Seventh-day Adventist Church. We “press together” and march forward in Christ's strength, assisting the weaker members along the way. Does your church and Conference need encouragement? Get involved in WCAS. You will not regret it.

May God’s church go forward. “Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen,” Ephesians 3:21 (emphasis mine).

Few words have become more misleading in the vocabulary of certain contemporary Adventists than “creed,” “creedal,” and “creedalism.” Equally misleading is the way the usage of these words is often traced through Adventist history, particularly as these terms were used by the Seventh-day Adventist pioneers as distinct from how some use them today.Read More

Few theological topics evoke such passion as the question of the assurance of salvation. In many ways this is understandable, as human beings naturally crave security. Insurance companies know this, which is why they are among the richest and most powerful organizations in our society.Read More
What role does the church have upon the government and what role does the government have in the church? Should the church be involved in legislating morality? In this episode, Pastor Lemuel Sapian shares his thoughts on the recent culture wars between secularists and Christians, the Johnson Amendment, and the principles of the Separation of Church and State, and why Seventh-day Adventists break from evangelical Christians in regards to partisan politics.Read More
To honor and exalt Jesus is the foundational commitment of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and undergirds its prophetic message expressed in the 28 Fundamental Beliefs. Salvation by Faith alone leading to a life of discipleship to Jesus is the goal of our mission. As we proclaim the three angels’ messages let us make sure that Christ stands at the center of all our activities and initiatives.Read More
On March 24, 2018, hundreds of thousands of high school students, in America and throughout the world, marched in memory, solidarity, and protest as they honored their peers and mentors slain a scant five weeks earlier in the massacre at Marjory Stoneman-Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. In certain places, like Wisconsin, the march would continue into the days to follow.Read More
