Every activities in this world has its meaning.
1 Pe 1:9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

We believe in God and go to church to get salvation.
If so, We need to know God's will clearly to be saved.
Mt 7:21  “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

God said only those who does the will of God can enter the kingdom of heaven, even though he prophesied in God's name.
Right, Putting into practice is important to get salvation, not only faith.

However, Many christian claim to be saved because they loved and believe in God.
But Jesus emphasized his disciples to put into practice.
Jn 13 : 8 “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”
Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”

Jesus told this when he washed the feet of Peter's before the Passover.

At that time, did Peter not believe Jesus?
Yes, He loved Jesus more than anything.

By this, We can understand that believe in God without any action is meaningless and can't bring us salvation.
James 2 : 17 in the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”
Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.

We can go to the kingdom of heaven when we fully obey God's word and follow God'will.
In the other words, Faith along with action can lead us to the kingdom of heaven.

Then, Who on earth follow God's will according to the bible?
It is the world mission society Church of God.

We are the only church which keeps the Passover of the new covenant and 7 feasts in 3 time, etc.

    Among the forefathers of faith who were saved in the Bible, there is no one who only had faith and did nothing.
    Because Abraham had faith, he obeyed God's words and left his hometown to migrate to a foreign land he did not know.
    Noah also had faith, so he prepared an ark after receiving a warning about a flood he had never experienced before.
    Because they had faith in God, they did things that were too difficult to handle.
    All that Jesus did was to set an example for us to do as well.
    Jesus was baptized, kept the Sabbath, and kept the Passover, all of which he set as an example for us to do.
    If we are saved by faith itself, we can just say, “I believe in God,” but why do we worship or pray?
    Because we believe in God, we demonstrate our faith through actions.

    Jesus said that those who do the will of God will be saved.
    We must practice the will of God to receive salvation.
    Only World Mission Society Church of God follow the will of God.
    Come to WMSCOG and keep the will of God.

    Faith is also important, of course. But faith alone cannot be saved. As God teaches, we must practice with faith.
    For God's people who believe in God, it is natural to keep God's commands. It is those who eat out and lie that believe in God and do not keep God's commands. (1John 2:4)
    Come to WMSCOG, who keeps God's commands according to the Bible, and let's practice our faith and go to heaven!


  • 2023-09-04 13:31

    Only those who act according to the word of God will go to heaven. Only WMSCOG is a church that puts the Word of God into practice.

    The logic that we are saved by faith in God was not wrong. However, just believing in God with emotion cannot be saved by God. This is because the law of Christ must be in the hearts of those who will be saved, and the law must be practiced in action to say that they believe in God. Because this is the faith that God wants.


  • 2023-09-04 13:39

    It is right that the Faith is So Important!!
    But faith not accompanied by action in nothing.
    So we have to take a look what right action is.


  • 2023-09-04 13:53

    Jesus also set an example through his actions. If you truly believe in God, all you have to do is act according to God’s example.

    It is believed that people can be saved by their faith. What he says is right on the one hand and wrong on the other hand. It should be added to the acts and practice that they have to keep God's commands and the laws. God Elohim say They do not know those to only say with no acts, even though they cry out, 'Lord, we prophesy, drive out the demons and perform the miracles.'

    Many christian claim to believe in God, But They never follow God's will.
    For example, They keep the Sunday service instead of the Sabbath day, Christ-mas instead of the Passover of the new covenant. And also, They ignored God's regulation such as veil, 7 feasts in 3 times and cross-idolatory, etc.
    By seeing this, They are far from the heavne and God.
    We need to prove our faith by action.


  • 2023-09-05 13:46

    We can be saved by God’s blessing. We have to obey word of God absolutely.


  • 2023-09-07 13:40

    Of course, faith is important for our salvation. But do you think faith is just a thought, 'I believe'? All our ancestors of faith not only believed in God but also did what He said. The Bible shows that one distinctive characteristic of God's true people, who will be saved in the last days, is that they obey God's commandments. In order to be saved, we must not only have faith in Christ but also keep God's commandments according to the prophecies of the Bible!

    The purpose of our faith is to receive the salvation of our souls and enter Heaven. Many Christians claim that one can be saved just by believing in Jesus. However, the faith that can lead to salvation must be accompanied by the actions that Jesus commanded us to do. Jesus told us to believe and be baptized in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and to drink and eat the Passover bread and wine, which symbolize the body and blood of Jesus. It is the word of God, who created the heavens and the earth and all things through His word, so shouldn’t we naturally put it into practice? Therefore, it absolutely does not mean that we can be saved just by believing.


  • 2023-09-05 13:23

    True faith is belief of God's word and to act as believing. Jesus commanded us to keep the Sabbath for our salvation, then, we keep the Sabbath because of believing Jesus' word.


  • 2023-09-07 10:09

    Faith is very important.But we can’t go to the kingdom of heaven just by faith.
    Faith along with action can enter to the kingdom of heaven.


  • 2023-09-07 13:38

    Faith alone cannot save us. We can be saved only when we have faith and practice. You must keep the commandments that God has told us to keep, and you must keep the lessons of God. Come to WMSCOG, keep the god's commandments , and go to heaven


  • 2023-09-05 13:47

    In conclusion, we can Never be saved only by our faith alone. This is the reason why not everyone who says "Lord" can enter the heaven. Even though there are many Christians who claim to believe in God, only those who do the will of God can enter heaven. Which means, in order to be saved, we should do the will of God on the basis of our faith. Listen, this is what Jesus said "Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do. God commanded us to keep the Sabbath day and the Passover in the manner of the New Covenant, so if we have faith in God, we must do what God commanded us to do, That's faith acknowledged by God.

    They claim that they are saved if they have faith. If so, I'd like to ask. How do you prove that you have faith? The proof that there is faith is 'action'. All of the great men of faith have proved faith by doing it. The Bible also records that faith without deeds is dead. Therefore, we must also prove faith as an act. What is an act of faith? It's God's wish. Please check what God wants you to do through the Bible and do it as it is and enter heaven.


  • 2023-09-07 13:41

    The Bible testifies that faith without works is dead, and that those who do according to the will of God can be saved. Therefore, we must keep the truths of the New Covenant according to the teachings of the Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong.


  • 2023-09-07 13:56

    The faith is important for our salvation.
    However, we need to do something with faith to be saved.
    According to God's teaching, those who do the will of God can enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
    So, we must follow the will of God to be saved.


  • 2023-09-13 01:44

    Without obey word of God is not true faith. God’s people have to obey word of God according to the will of God.


  • 2023-09-14 15:36

    The Bible says that faith without doing is dead. Then, what sould we do? Jesus said that we must keep his commandments to enter eterbal life. His commandments are the laws of the new covenant. There are the Sabbath, the Passover, the pentecost and so on.
