50th Church Establishment
Half a century has passed since Sungrak Church’s foundation. 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of Sungrak Church. Relying on the Bible, Sungrak Church has a God-centered faith based on The Picture of God’s Will. Sungrak Church was founded by God’s calling as an independent church. It follows the ‘Return to the Word’ Berea Movement.
Sungrak people have grown and endured for 51 years with Semuon. We accomplished this until today. This would be impossible without your dedication and faith. The Holy Spirit helps us to protect the Church with the Overseer. It is the Lord’s body. We oppose the devil’s authority. The deacons who stood by me for so long are my brothers and sisters. We held hands, knelt before the Lord, and overcame trials together.
This is right. This is us. This is our calling.
This is our work for the future.
