The Church of God where members coming from the birthplace of Christianity visit to study the Bible
One of the most outstanding characteristic of the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) is that they have many overseas churches in the world. For the year ending of 2014, the Church says they have 2,700 churches in 175 countries throughout the world.
Another characteristic of the Church of God is that its members are mostly young and academic. One of the Church members says, “Inside or outside Korea, the majority of the members are in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. Most of them became our members when they visited our Church to solve the questions of the Bible that came to their mind while studying the Bible alone.” And they add, “Unlike the response in Korea, if we preach about God the Mother in overseas countries, they show a sincere response, saying, ‘Is that really in the Bible?’”
The Church of God even entered European and American continents, so-called the birthplace of Christianity, as well as non-Christian countries in the Middle East and Africa. While most Korean churches do their overseas mission work, centering on Korean society, the Church of God has been preached mainly to local people. As a result, even in Muslim countries like Pakistan as well as Hindu countries like Nepal and India, many Churches are run, centering on the local members.
One of the Church members says, “We do not do our mission work through detestable ways or choir performances in the street as many other churches did. In the Middle East, where the national religions are Islam, and in South America where Catholicism is deeply rooted, we do our missionary work in the same way as we do in Korea by delivering the words of God calmly.”
In the United States and Europe, the number of Christians has been rapidly decreasing due to the younger generation’s disregard since the 1990’s. Despite that, the number of the members of the Church of God is steadily increasing with most of the members being in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. In the case of the New York Church in the United States, the number of members is over 1,000. Since the church building is small, compared with the number of members, there are dozens of house churches and office churches serving as small-scale churches.
Overseas members are not satisfied with their having worship services in their local Churches, and journey to Korea, the birthplace of the Church of God. They visit the main temple of the Church of God [New Jerusalem Temple] located in Bun-dang in South Korea and travel around symbolic Churches in the capital area and have a worship service there. One member of the Church says, “Overseas members save their wages for several months or years to visit Korea, which is their lifelong desire, and use their summer vacation for the visit. A short trip is for five days and four nights, and a long trip is for fifteen days and fourteen nights. Every year, over 1,000 members visit Korea.” He adds, “The number of visitors was limited to 350 due to the lack of accommodations.”
Why do so many young people of the United States and Europe reject the religions which their ancestors have believed for hundreds of years, and are attracted to the Church that started in Korea, a small land in the east? The answer is in the Bible.
Micah 4:1 “In the last days the mountain of the LORD’S temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and peoples will stream to it. Many nations will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.”
Isaiah 33:20-24 “Look upon Zion, the city of our festivals; your eyes will see Jerusalem, a peaceful abode, a tent that will not be moved; its stakes will never be pulled up, nor any of its ropes broken… For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; it is he who will save us… No one living in Zion will say, “I am ill”; and the sins of those who dwell there will be forgiven.”
The Zion, where people stream to in the last days, is the Church where we can keep the feasts of God. Then what church keeps the feasts of God according to the teachings of the Bible? It is only the World Mission Society Church of God. This is the reason why many people in America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania stream to the Church of God these days.
We were spiritual orphans who lost God. Now you can meet God Elohim and go back to heaven. Thank you to Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Jerusalem Mother.
I will give glory to Elohim God by bearing many grains of fruit.
The church that Jesus established and the apostles attended is the Church of God. The Church of God is a church that follows the Bible in which God the Father and God the Mother exist.
Amen! World Mission Society Church of God is the only church keeping all the feasts of God as they are described in the Bible. Come to Zion!
Amen! Only the church of god is a true church because of the bible’s prophecy fulfillment and keeping the god’s feast. Above all things there is god the father and mother. Thanks to god the father and mother to lead us to Zion that keep the feast.
It’s very amazing that the members of many countries go to Korea to study the bible. It’s because God came to Korea in flesh and establish the zion where keeps the feast of God.
We love you !
It is amazing that brothers and sisters all over the world are coming to Korea to visit the birth place of Church of God!

Thanks to God Elohim for making me member of WMSCOG!
The prophecy of the Bible is truly amazing.
Thx God, to allow me to stay in wmscog.
The end of the Bible,God says that “the Spirit n the Bride say that come” to ppl on the world.Now,many ppl come to Christ Ahnsahnghong n God the Mother so that fulfill the prophecy n they learn abt Elohim God n hidden secrets in the Bible.That’s why the WMSCOG increases for 50 yrs.
Do you want to know the truths?Come n learn n judge by yoursrlf. Then you surely understand why many ppl stream to Church of God
Every year, more than 1500 overseas members has visited Korea to meet God the Mother, God in the flesh. This is the fulfill ment of the prophecy in Isaiah 60. it is only the Church of Go which fulfills this prophecy in thos last days.
I think the reason why the youth people leave their religion of chritianity is that churches lose their role. The more we go to church the more we must hope for the glorious kingdom of heaven which makes us endure any kinds of difficulties and agonies. However, even from the birthplace of christianity, many christian focus on the World Mission Society Church of God. It means that in WMSCOG, there exists something special. Regardless of skin color, language, culture, member of here church can be gathered for meeting the truth.
Members of the Church of God, from all around the world, are all alike in humbleness, goodness, patience, and all kinds of characteristics, God’s people should have.
Amen! Despite of different background and culture all of them have beautiful character.
It’s because all of them are heavenly citizen! Truly wonderful church! Wonderful members!
One of the most outstanding characteristic of Church of God is the one of the fulfillment of the prophecies in the Bible. Thanks to Father and Mother for allowing me to understand that the scene of many peoples and nations streaming to zion is a part of prophecies from the Bible and see it by my own eyes.
