On Jan 17, 2018, a ceremony to unveil the Teachings of Mother took place at the Church of God. The ceremony was held in conjunction with the commemoration of Christ Ahnsahnghong’s 100th birth anniversary. In accordance with the Bible’s teachings, the Church of God bases its core values on the 13 Teachings of Mother.
Proverbs 1:8 Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
To have Mother’s words always etched in the members’ hearts, the Church of God installed a monument engraved with Mother’s Teachings. One of the teachings is “It is more blessed to give love than to receive, as God always gives love”. This teaching was derived from Jesus’ words:
Acts 20:35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
God displayed His love for us by being crucified on the cross to forgive us of our sins. As we have received love from God, He wants us to share the love with others. God will be very happy to see us practising “giving love” and grant us abundant blessings.
Another teaching that the Church of God members strive to practise is “Even God didn’t come to be served but to serve. When we serve one another without wanting to be served, God will be pleased.”
In order to practice this teaching, the Church of God conducts many volunteer activities such as blood drives, cleanups, and old folks home visits. Through these activities, the members hope to give back to the society by serving others.
