Shincheonji Beliefs

Shincheonji forces members to quit school and job.

Shincheonji emphasizes to all its members the need to do their very best in all positions and responsibilities, to the point of chasing after perfection. Although people are imperfect and we are all insufficient, Shincheonji believes that people should aspire for better and for being a light to the world in all ways, not just volunteering.

Members have been forced to quit schools and jobs when they are forced to undergo coercive conversion and are dragged away into secluded locations or “cult conversion” locations.
