            [title] => What Are the Aims of The Church of Almighty God?
            [content] => 

The Church of Almighty God waters and shepherds its believers in complete accordance with the words of God in the Bible and The Word Appears in the Flesh expressed by Almighty God, so that every believer can, under the guidance, provision, watering, and shepherding of the words of Almighty God, understand all of the truths in God’s words, possess the right outlook on life and values, have the right goals to pursue, follow the way of God, hold on to God’s commissions, glorify God by being the light of the world and salt of the earth, be praised by God, and be qualified to inherit God’s promises.

The church aims to establish a church that is after God’s heart, so that the believers can serve and provide for each other in God’s words and God’s love, can obey and worship Almighty God, Christ of the last days, and can become a true testimony to God and a manifestation of God’s glory.

The church aims to spread and testify to the gospel of the kingdom of Almighty God, allowing people to see that Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus of the last days, and that He has embarked upon the work of “judgment to begin at the house of God” (1Pe 4:17) prophesied in the Bible, which is precisely God’s work of completely purifying and saving man in the last days. Only by accepting all of the truths expressed by Almighty God can man rid himself of his satanic disposition, break free from the bondage of sin, be purified, come to know God, obey God, and worship God, live out a meaningful life, and survive the great disasters of the last days and enter into God’s kingdom—only this is the beautiful destination of mankind. Spreading and testifying to Almighty God’s work of the last days, and thereby bringing before God all those who acknowledge God’s existence and love the truth so that they might accept and gain God’s salvation of the last days—this is God’s commission to His chosen people, and the aims of The Church of Almighty God.
