You may know us as the “Unification Church”. We come from humble beginnings with big ideas. While our name has evolved over time from the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity to Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, our mission has stayed the same: to unify the world as one family with God as our Heavenly Parent.
God is first and foremost our parent, encompassing both female and male, mother and father. The cosmos was created for Heavenly Parent’s children: humanity. A parent wishes for their children to become better, more capable, happy and creative than themselves. God is not a distant, removed supernatural being, but our original parent who feels, who loves and is in deep pain due to our suffering.
God created the cosmos to experience love. The original human couple were meant to become the first “true parents” and raise a family with God’s love as the source, centered on this love, but that didn’t happen. Our relationship with God was broken. God has been searching for a couple who could stand in that position as True Parents to repair that relationship and bring about a world of love as God envisioned. We believe this couple is Rev. Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon. By receiving the Marriage Blessing from True Parents, we can relate directly to God as our parent, as God’s sons and daughters, and as the loving families God always intended.
The Divine Principle is a transformative worldview written for a new age of humankind. It focuses on human growth and development from a perspective rooted in God as the Source that renews our relationship to humankind, as one family. The Divine Principle helps us to understand who we truly are and what we can do to reach the potential that God has always had for us.
