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 delude ourselves when we try to turn our just punishments into a cross and rejoice over that for which we should rather repent. 'For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently' But if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God? (1 Peter 2:20). The cross is always in the way of righteousness. We feel the pain of the cross only when we suffer for Christ's sake by our own willing choice.
