Nazareth Mission Church Inc., National and International


GOD Almighty, FATHER DIVINE, is the Bishop, Founder and Pastor

February 14th, 1959

The Christian Church, springing forth and taking its inspiration from the lowly Nazarene, had its rise and fall many times and in many different places. Today religious faith has fallen to an all time low. In His omniscience, though, GOD has appeared in His Own Body for the redemption and the spiritual re-awakening of all humanity because it was necessary. His Name is FATHER DIVINE.




FATHER DIVINE, the Founder, Bishop and Pastor of all Peace Mission churches
is the spiritual advisor in all matters pertaining to the church work and service,
which, patterned after the life of FATHER DIVINE, is one hundred percent charitable. - MOTHER DIVINE

MOTHER DIVINE, who is the symbol of the Church without spot or wrinkle spoken of in the Holy Bible, portrays the virtuous life of Christ. She is as virtuous today as the day She married FATHER.

FATHER DIVINE'S international Peace Mission Movement has established churches all over the world. They embrace the Christian Church, Judaism, Mohammedanism, Buddhism, Zen— in fact the essence of all true religion. Only GOD Himself could draw people from every religion together on one common level of spiritual understanding.

But, in Peace Mission churches, which are founded on the teachings of FATHER DIVINE, can be found the zenith of every religion actually being lived by followers of FATHER DIVINE after His Own Personal example.

The Nazareth Mission Church, Home and Training School of Australia is located at 21 Tranmere Street, Drummoyne in Sydney. The American flag, the Australian flag and the British flag all fly outside the building. Peace Mission churches are conducted the same the world over, so that if you should visit any one of them in any foreign country you would find the same type of services going on and people speaking the English language.

Some of the members of the Australian Rosebud Choir at the Nazareth Mission Church in Australia displayed two new Rosebud flags in ceremonies at the church last summer. Choir members internationally wear the same uniform consisting of red jackets, white blouses, blue skirts, berets and shoes and white gloves.

The Lilly-Bud Choir of the Nazareth Mission Church in Sydney, Australia, the President of the Church, Miss Nell Ramsey who is herself a Lilly-Bud, and is standing fourth from the left, wear their uniforms of green with white blouses and berets.

The Austrian branch of the Nazareth Mission Church reflects the austerity of the Viennese in its quaint but proud appearance. It can be found at Hockengasse 71, Vienna XVIII, Austria. Miss Olga Pirny, who is the president of the church there will greet you with "Peace" and speak in good English to visitors.

The English class at the Nazareth Mission Church in Vienna, Austria diligently studies the English Language because FATHER DIVINE has said it shall be an international language. They listen to and read His sermons on wire recorders and The New Day paper as workable basis for their study of the language.

Vienna, Austria has an established branch of the Nazareth Mission Church as well as there is one in Sydney, Australia.

Followers of FATHER DIVINE however are everywhere. No matter where you go in this country or abroad, they will be there, whether there is a Peace Mission church where you are or not. You will not know them by any outward peculiarity but by the life they live, both in public and in the privacy of their homes.

Even in audiences and large gatherings of Peace Mission churches that the separation of the sexes is one of the requirements of membership, is in evidence. Male members automatically separate themselves from female members by sitting on opposite sides of assembly halls.
