South Korea: After leaning the bible and how to evangelise, over 100,000 ‘graduate’ from Shincheonji Church of Jesus

The organisation believes that at the current rate of enrollment and evangelisation, the Shincheonji Church will have over a million congregation members in three years, which will 'drastically change the religious landscape of South Korea'.

The Shincheonji Church of Jesus on the Republic of South Korea recently held a grand graduation ceremony where 103,764 students graduated after the completion of a six-month bible study programme. As per reports, the ‘tuition-free’ course was offered by the Shincheonji Church in Seoul, South Korea, where the ceremony was held on November 10.

Over 50,000 seminaries were present at the ceremony while the rest of the seminaries across Korea and other nations attended the programme via a live stream. The live stream was reportedly broadcast in over 112 countries.

The Church teaches the bible to thousands of students every year. As per the survey conducted, 95% of the students who came there stated that they came to Shincheonji for the ‘excellent teaching’ of the scriptures.

It is notable here that one of the requirements for graduation is to evangelise. With reports pegging the evangelism rate at above 100%, there are reportedly over 200,000 students admitted this year, who will graduate in 2020.

The organisation believes that at the current rate of enrollment and evangelisation, the Shincheonji Church will have over a million congregation members in three years, which will ‘drastically change the religious landscape of South Korea’.

A representative of the Church has stated that over 41% of the seminaries were Christian believers practising their faith under a ‘different denomination, like Protestantism’, but joined Shincheonji when they ‘saw corruption within their Churches among their own pastors’.
