As believers, the goal of our faith is to understand and participate in this plan by carefully studying God’s teachings contained in the Bible. The World Mission Society Church of God hosts numerous Bible studies and seminars on various topics to guide those interested in seeking Christ to the way of salvation.

CHRISTIAN ESSENTIALS
FEASTS OF GOD

Worship Service on Saturday

The Church of God observes the Sabbath day on Saturday according to the teachings of Jesus Christ (Luke 4:16) and the apostles of the Early Church (Acts 17:2). Know the history of the Sabbath day, its importance and why we should keep it.

LEARN

The Soul Exists

To fully know our spirit, there are three questions we must answer. Where are we from? Why are we here? Where are we going? Understand our life before birth, life here on earth and where God wants to lead us. (Genesis 2:7)

LEARN

Baptism

Jesus’ last commission to His disciples was to baptize people in the name of the Father, in the name of the Son, and in the name of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19) immediately after receiving the teachings of Christ. The World Mission Society Church of God conducts baptism in the three names of God.

LEARN

Holy Trinity

Study the prophecies of the Bible that clearly testify how God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are all the same one God.

LEARN

Woman’s Veil

The Bible teaches that during prayer and worship service, men should not cover their heads in order to give glory to Christ. Likewise, women should cover their heads in order to give glory to Christ (1 Corinthians 11:2-16).

LEARN

Christ Ahnsahnghong

The Bible testifies that Second Coming Christ would revive all of the teachings of the Early Church. Because Christ Ahnsahnghong has fulfilled these biblical prophecies, members of the Church of God believe He is Second Coming Christ.

LEARN

God the Mother

The World Mission Society Church of God believes in Heavenly Mother, as testified in the Bible. The existence of the female image of God is considered the “mystery of mysteries,” yet is clearly depicted through numerous prophecies, both in the Old and New testaments.

The Feasts of God

God established seven feasts grouped in three times to grant us the forgiveness of sins. These feasts were not only for the Israelites of the Old Testament, but for Christians today as well.

Look on Zion, the city of our festivals… the sins of those who dwell there will be forgiven.
Isa 33:20-24

But you have come to Mount Zion…to the Church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven.
Hebrews 12:22-23

To receive this great blessing from God, we must go to the place God established, which is Zion (Ps 102:16), recognizable through the feasts of God.

Three times a year all your men must appear before the Lord your God at the place he will choose: at the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the Festival of Weeks and the Festival of Tabernacles.
Dt 16:16

Passover

God the Father gave the Israelites the Passover in the Old Testament for their blessing. Jesus Christ established the New Covenant Passover in the New Testament and commanded His disciples to celebrate it (Matthew 26:19). The Passover contains blessings that are relevant to Christians today.

LEARN

Feast of Unleavened Bread

The Feast of Unleavened Bread represents the suffering Christ underwent from the night of the Passover until His death on the cross. In the Old Testament, the Israelites kept this feast by eating unleavened bread. In the New Testament, Christians are to share in Christ’s sufferings by fasting.

LEARN

Resurrection

Resurrection Day is celebrated on Sunday every year and marks the day Christ rose from the dead. By His resurrection, Jesus fulfilled the Feast of the Firstfruits, in accordance with the prophecies of the Bible. His example inspires Christians to have hope for heaven. This feast is celebrated by breaking resurrection bread that opens our spiritual eyes to understand God’s words in the Bible.

LEARN

Pentecost

Also known as the Feast of Weeks, the Pentecost gets its name from the time of its celebration: fifty days after Resurrection Day. On this feast, Christ pours out the Holy Spirit. Through the Holy Spirit, believers are able to follow in the footsteps of Christ and preach the gospel.

LEARN

Feast of Trumpets

In the Old Testament, Israelites blew trumpets for ten days to prepare their hearts until Moses returned from Mount Sinai with the ten commandments. In the New Testament times, believers are to pray earnestly for ten days until the Day of Atonement.

LEARN

Day of Atonement

God established the Day of Atonement to commemorate the day He forgave the Israelites’ sins. On this day, atonement is made so that the people of God can be forgiven for all the sins committed in ignorance.

LEARN

Feast of Tabernacles

The Feast of Tabernacles is a joyful feast. In the Old Testament, Israelites offered materials to build the temple. In the New Testament, God’s children are regarded as temple material (Revelation 3:12). On the last and greatest day of the feast, God pours out the Holy Spirit on all those who keep this feast.
