The leadership of the World Olivet Assembly (WOA) attended the recent dedication service of a new office of the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) located at Evangelical Center on June 6, 2022, dubbed the "Philadelphia House."
The dedication ceremony was joined by the WOA General Secretary Rev. Mark Spisak and the former WOA President Rev. David Jang, who also served as a member of the North American Council of the WEA from 2007 and 2018.
Preaching about the letter to the church in Philadelphia in Revelation 3:7-10, WEA Secretary General Bishop Dr. Thomas Schirrmacher delivered a message on the importance of believing in Jesus Christ and revealing one's faith in the deeds of everyday life that follow God's Word.
Having been working with persecuted Christians around the world all his life, Dr. Schirrmacher urged attendees to follow the spirit of the Philadelphia church, by treating the persecuted Christians around the world as if they are their own parents, children and relatives.
"We are truly thankful that we could participate in this historic event of the dedication of the Philadelphia House. Since its formation 15 years ago, the World Olivet Assembly has been a member and a strong supporter of WEA as we believe in the importance of uniting evangelicals around the world. We were looking forward to the dedication of this building as part of the Evangelical Center and are thankful that this facility can be open and serve the global Church," said Rev. Mark Spisak.
The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) is an interdenominational organization of evangelical Christian churches, representing more than 600 million evangelicals belonging to churches in 143 nations. It seeks to strengthen local churches through national alliances, supporting and coordinating grassroots leadership and seeking practical ways of showing the unity of the body of Christ.
