Rapid Growth of WMSCOG Since the Year 2,000
Many Christians remember the amazing work of Jesus’ disciples after receiving the power of the Holy Spirit on the Pentecost. They had fervently preached the gospel without fear of death or anything else. By their great faith, 3,000 or 5,000 people received baptism in a day. It was the miracle of God performed by the former rain of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:40-41 “With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.”
Acts 4:4 “But many who heard the message believed, and the number of men grew to about five thousand.”
In the same way, the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) has performed the same miracle by receiving the latter rain of the Holy Spirit given by Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother. They are growing faster than any other church in the world.
The World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) is a religious organization which believe in not only God the Father but also God the Mother. Although existing denominations have different points of view about this, they all acknowledge the rapid growth of the Church. The Church of God is a newly established religious organization that started in 1964. The Church explains, “As the end of 2014, there are 2.2 million registered members (international and domestic) with 400 branch churches in Korea and 2,700 branch churches overseas. Missionaries have been sent to 175 countries.”
“Femininity” is a world-wide norm in the 21st century. In every walk of society, delicate and soft tolerance is welcomed rather than tough and hard authoritarianism. The Church of God has emphasized, “Mother’s love is the key to world peace.” The Monthly Chosun covered the Church out of curiosity to see whether the Church’s rapid growth is related to the social trend or phenomenon. In regard to its speedy growth, the members of the Church of God say, “It is because of Mother’s love.” Then, what is this “Mother’s love” that they are talking about? (To be continued)
