On March 12, under the presence of Kyoshu-sama, a Profession Ceremony took place at the Tennoji Church in the city of Osaka.

As the venue enveloped in prayers offered by Kyoshu-sama was filled with supreme purity and solemnity, I could not help but feel great reverence penetrating my whole body as I stood in that place. The image of Kyoshu-sama, bestowing each and every new member with an Ohikari—it was truly like looking at a scene where through Kyoshu-sama, God was bestowing light and salvation on us members of World Church of Messiah, on each and every new member, the light and salvation embedded in the name of Messiah that all of humanity must seek.

If we were not under the leadership of Kyoshu-sama and Masaaki-sama, our life would have been one of simply waiting, yearning in darkness for the time to be saved. But instead, now, we have become ones who know the truth of Jesus and Meishu-sama’s salvation and have been allowed to walk in the light. So that as many people as possible in all of humanity may walk on this path of glory and taking pride in being in the position to save, let us wholeheartedly advance the spreading of the gospel together with those who became new members today.
