Berea Movement is to Return to the Word!
“These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness,
and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.” (Acts17:11)
Corona 19 On-site Worship Service Guidelines
1. Please use the designated place to access the sanctuary
=> There are many gates in CWMC but we open only few gates to control saints for disinfecting.
2. Please check the saints with the church entrance card
=> If you scan the QR code of the entrance card, the information of the saints attending the worship service is stored in a certain place. If there is a newcomer or a person who has not been to the church for a long time and do not have a card, make sure they fill their personal information on the paper)
->This is for the case if the government requests information attending to the worship service in the future.
3. When saints enter the sanctuary, you must disinfect and check fever every time
=> There are volunteers to check the fever with thermometer and give the hand sanitizer. It might be helpful if there is the thermal imaging camera.
4. Wearing a mask is required inside and outside the sanctuary.
=> Saints are guided to wear a mask even during the worship service
5. Please keep the social distance 2M for seating.
=> Be sure to mark the chairs that can be seated in advance and ushers guide saints to be seated at a sufficient distance according to the instructions of the guide on the day of worship
6. Do not have a group of eating together after the worship service
=> The church does not provide meals for a while.
7. Small group meeting rather than the main service will be suspended for now
=> The Korean government recommends refraining from small group meeting so we follow it.
8. When saints greet, do not handshake hands or hug each other
Sungrak Church was founded as an independent church which pursues the Bible as the supreme law of the church. The Bible speaks of the church as follows: Ephesians 1:22-23 states that Jesus is the Head of the Church and the Church is His Body. Sungrak Church is a congregational church, following the motto, ‘Let Us Return to the Bible’. It means that there is no higher institution that mediates between Jesus and the church. Thus, God’s revelations should be directly given to the congregation without any higher institution or assembly in between.
The Berea Movement of Sungrak Church is a movement that asserts believing and following the Bible, just as it is written. Sungrak Church is an independent church that does not belong to any denomination. Instead, it is a gathering of Baptists who follow the commandment of Jesus and it is a congregation of those who follow the Bible. There is no other church like Sungrak Church because Sungrak Church was founded as an independent church. An independent church has its own ideals and values. There might be some permissible independent church alliance, but each church is permitted to have different ideals and values. Each church must pursue its own unique ideals all the way. Therefore, an independent church reflects the founder’s beliefs and will.
