Why does the Church of God carry out many volunteer services?


Volunteering is a duty of Christians. The Bible teaches that believers in God should take on the roles of the salt and light of the world and love their neighbors (Mt 5:13–16; 22:39).

The Church of God carries out diverse volunteer services, including environmental cleanups and donations for underprivileged neighbors around the world. The reason is that all people are the global family members.

The parable of the Good Samaritan in the Bible is a good lesson about neighborly love. After telling the parable, Jesus said, “Do likewise.” In obedience to the teaching of God, the Church of God is carrying out volunteer services around the world.
