Our Roots, Our Vision, Our Gift

In the middle of the nineteenth century, a most difficult time in Korean history, two Koreans were baptized by a Scottish Presbyterian missionary in Manchuria. This was in 1876. They, with several other Koreans who were later baptized, embarked on the enormous task of translating the Bible into the Korean tongue. After many months of hard work, the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts were translated and published in the Korean language in the fall of 1882. Read More

  • Dearest sevants of Most High, Everlasting God, Is this the way Satan has used some men to deceive us and lead us astray from the sound truth of God’s Holy Word? . I am a born again clergy woman aged 26 yrs , married and with a twin boy and two girls and one small daughter. I am leading 6 congregations in the western Kenya with an average membership of 800 souls. Formerly, we used to belong to Swedenborgian church (New church cult) and the false teachings we have been taught!, only God can now reveal the mystics theologies when we compare with your truth teachings from the Holy Bible the Divine Word of God. I discovered your teachings through the web site October 2009. I have been making some print outs, teaching these congregations under my jurisdiction as well as comparing these teaching with Holy Bible scriptures line by line, hand by hand, and we have proved that you have the true teachings according to the doctrine of “sound words” profitable for church of God, believers. Therefore having separated our selves from this Swedenborg teachings (New church cult) since October, 2009. we humbly pass our request to join hands with you to become one family in the unity and bonds of peace of foster spreading the gospel to all parts of the world. Especially here where we seldom have such wonderful biblical truth teachings . Looking forward to your consideration to let us be “ one body,…in one hope of calling, one Lord, one faith, one Baptism, one God and Father of all who is above all and through all, and in (us) all. (Eph 4:4-6_. In His Service, Damaris. by Damaris N. rianga on 11/06/2010 at 4:42 a.m.
