The Chief Pastor Kim Joo-cheol, who presided the afternoon and evening services, gave sermons each titled, “God Is the Treasure, or a Stone That Causes Men to Stumble,” and “Shine the Light of the Glory of Jerusalem.” The point of the sermons were as follows: To those who believe, God is the treasure, but to those who do not believe, God is a stone that causes them to stumble, so we should have the right faith in the Holy Spirit and the Bride who are the Saviors in this age: When there is no light, people cannot discern between truth and falsehood, but when the light of glory of Jerusalem shines, the darkness retreats and all is disclosed, so let us shine the light of the glory of Heavenly Jerusalem Mother throughout the world so that all people will come to the way of life.

Looking at the conference hall filled with over 1,000 members, the General Pastor Kim Joo-cheol awakened the faith of the local members, saying, “New York Church started with a family 10 years ago. But now it has greatly prospered as prophesied in the book of Isaiah, ‘The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the LORD; in its time I will do this swiftly’ (Isa 60:22).”

The Church members in New York area, who had been fervently preaching the gospel in their local churches, gathered together at the joint worship after a long time. They shed tears of gratitude, realizing more deeply the power and love of God who makes the least become a thousand and the smallest a mighty nation.

After the service, the members gave thanks to God for giving them grace through the sermons, and expressed their determination to “display the light of the glory of Jerusalem as the prophetic protagonists in this age, by diligently preaching Mother and boasting about Her.”

The Church members in New York and nearby regions deeply moved the members of Zion all around the world by preaching the gospel with burning fervor through the Holy Spirit.

The New York Church has established 13 branch churches in the state and even in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, including many house-churches and office-churches in the downtown area, and is trying their hardest to support the branch churches. This summer, over 160 members are participating in the short-term missions during their vacation and are diligently sharing the water of life, which is flowing out from Jerusalem, with many people around the world. They are accomplishing the work of God which will startle the whole world, beginning from New York the “center of the world."
