THe Medical cadet creed
“I am a Medical Cadet, a defender of human rights; I serve all just and noble causes. I am proud to be one. I
will always act correctly, asking the All Mighty to continuously guide my steps where ever I go. I am proud to
be part of this organization. I will do everything in my power to keep on high our morals and standards. I will
be loyal to those that I serve. I will obey the orders and instructions from my superiors; in God I trust.
Medical Cadet Corps (MCC) trains and equips members to provide spiritual comfort or “Spiritual First Aid,” first aid, relief, rescue, and humanitarian aid in times of emergency and disaster. The MCC also provides logistical support to all Seventh-day Adventist church activities and programs, as requested
The MCC promotes spiritual growth for its members. Service without a spiritual grounding is in vain. Training includes instruction on church doctrines and history. Members are required to participate in activities to include, but are not limited to witnessing, evangelistic outreach, church involvement in a local church, and other spiritual growth building activities and training.

WSO/NSO works in collaboration with the Adventist Community Services Department of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the American Red Cross, and other government relief and rescue agencies, such as FEMA in the United States.
