The World Mission Society Church of God won the Presidential Award for good deeds
Today, we sometimes see articles on churches which became a subject of criticism of the public for wrong-doings. However, there is a church that receives praise from the public for good deeds. The World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) recently received the Presidential Citation (Group Award) from the Korean government.
The Presidential Award is the highest award which is given to a group or organization that contributed to the society and nation.
This Award is granted to a group that continued to contribute to the society for more than 5 years. Moreover, the government chooses groups which are eligible for the Award through a strict review process. The process is composed of seven steps including investigation by the police into the candidate groups. Therefore, it’s not possible to receive this Award if a group has been involved in any wrong-doings.
Young-seok Kim, Vice-Minister of the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries, said, “The Church of God represented and served as the chief spiritual support [of Korea] at the scene of grief. So conferring the Presidential award on you for the message you give to the people with your passion is appropriate. Thank you for your hard work.”
In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)
The World Mission Society Church of God, which believes in Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother as the Savior of the age of the Holy Spirit, practices the teachings of Jesus to be the salt of the earth with good deeds.
Receiving the Awards from nation, it is honorable. congratulation!!
Award is not the goal. Award is just following the good efforts.
