Rev. and Mrs. Moon have established many organizations throughout their lives as a way to address the needs of the world and create opportunities to live for the sake of the greater good.
They teach that the family is the only institution established by God, and that the family is where we truly grow to understand God through the four realms of heart; parental love, children's love, sibling love, and conjugal love. Therefore the emphasis throughout their teachings is not only the spiritual health and salvation of the individual, but also of the family, nation, and world.
"To become a family of peaceful nations we must first become nations of peaceful families."
Raised in North Korea, Rev. Moon's family converted from Buddhism to Christianity in 1930, during the Japanese occupation of the peninsula, which was at that time a very dangerous thing to do. Rev. Moon's lifelong mission began on Easter morning in 1935 at the age of 15. While deep in prayer on a mountain side he had a profound encounter with Jesus and was called to continue the work that Jesus had begun. The following 10 years were a period of searching for a truth that would answer fundamental questions about the nature of God and the universe. Rev. Moon studied electrical engineering in his college years, in both Japan and Korea, and at the same time led a life of intense prayer, study of the Bible, and devoted service to others. The meaning of his calling from Jesus was revealed to Sun Myung Moon through what would later become the Divine Principle. In 1954 Rev. Moon founded the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity. This was the beginning of his public ministry to bring God's love and peace to the world.
