Our emergency measure has been implemented as part of an international effort by The Light of the World Church. The official press release can be found below.
Following recommended measures to address public health issues related with the COVID-19 virus, The Light of the World Church would like to inform the general public as follows:
- All daily gatherings that are normally held in every temple worldwide have been temporarily suspended until further notice.
- Daily prayers will be broadcast via Internet to every member so that they may partake in hearing the word of God from their homes, where we will continue praying, for we are a Church of prayer.
- These measures have been implemented to protect the health of each individual. Along with other socially responsible institutions, it is also an act of solidarity with our communities.
- We will continue praying that God bless us all, and guide the government of every nation; we will especially pray for all medical personnel throughout the world, who are doing their utmost to protect the well-being of every person.
The Light of the World Church continues to pray that God’s blessing be upon us all, and we may soon overcome this health emergency.
