Kkottongnae Brothers and Sisters of Jesus

Introduction
  The congregation is committed to witnessing God to the world and saving souls by practicing Jesus’ love. We go out and find the poor in pain and starvation that nobody else cares for. We welcome them with warm heart, provide them with food, home and medical care. On top of that, we love them in Jesus’ name helping them enter into heaven through baptism in water and in spirit.
 
Founding Spirit
  Our Lord suffered the agony and died on behalf of our sins. He presented himself alive. We aim to practice His love. We are dedicated to emptying ourselves to serve ’the poorest of the poor who are even unable to beg for food’, with Jesus’ saying in mind : "The greatest love you can have for your friends is to give your life for them." (John 15:13)
 
Founding Goal
  "God is love, and those who live in love live in union with God and God lives in union with them." (1 John 4,16) With the Jesus’ saying in mind, the congregation of Kkottongnae Sisters of Jesus comes closer to God, witnesses His love and faithfulness, conforms to the will of God and achieves holiness. Brothers of the Kottongnae congregation are committed to living in love and living in union with our Lord, love itself. The Congregation of Kkottongnae Brothers and Sisters, guided by the Holy Spirit, present themselves before God. Ultimately, it serves as instruments to build the Kingdom of God.     Go to the Congregation Kkottongnae Brothers and Sisters of Jesus
