Volunteer Services

The Church of God nurtures the peace and happiness of the world
by saving precious lives and overcoming hardships together.

Everybody becomes happy in Mother’s love

The earth created by God is home to mankind. We are like one family. However, the number of people suffering from wars, famines, disasters, and diseases all over the world has been increasing every year. Unexpected social, economic, and environmental disasters threaten our basic human rights to life, education, medical treatment, and a healthy environment; they even jeapardize the survival of mankind. The Church of God aims to create a world of peace and happiness where everyone feels comfortable as if in the arms of a mother.

Mother’s Love Is the Source of Happiness

Mother’s love is what the global village needs most. Just as a mother’s love, care, and sacrifice in the family brings forth family peace and harmony, when the world, which is full of disasters and conflicts, gets filled with the love of Mother, mankind can gain peace and happiness.

When People Change, the World Changes

Each individual is the smallest unit of human society. When a person changes, his family will change; his community, city, and country will change; and then the world will change. With the love of a mother who is the central figure in the family, we provide each person with a happy change, so that those whose lives have been changed can make the world happy together.

The Church of God is with the world in accomplishing the UN SDGs

The ultimate purpose of the UN SDGs is to bring peace and happiness to mankind. The Church of God supports accomplishing the UN SDGs in cooperation with international organizations, governments and institutions of many countries, communities, and people from all walks of life.
