Peace Mission belief is a revelatory in nature. Believers often arrive at the conviction that "Father Divine is God" out of the struggles and questions of their own life situations and accompanied with the healing presence of the body or spirit of Father Divine. Peace Mission belief is monistic is term of its philosophy of mind, that is the soul is not separate from the body, and God does not exist on a plane of consciousness separate from the human one. In Peace Mission belief, there is no heaven because heaven has been here where Father in a body once existed corporeally, and heaven is conceptually everywhere and anywhere one can earnestly make a mental connection with that eternal mind substance that is the essence of what believers know as Father Divine.

12012-05-04T15:48:02-07:00Miss Heddy's Conviction1Each follower of the Peace Mission Movement has a story about his or her conviction that Father Divine is the living incarnation of God. Miss Heddy’s conviction occured before the Swiss alps in 1940. At the time, she didn’t speak English and had not visited the United States. She had met a small group of Peace Mission followers in Basil and heard all about Father Divine, but her logic told her that God could not possibly be walking around in Harlem, New York.
In 1949, nine years after her conviction, she found her way to New York City to work with children. She met Father Divine and her faith was confirmed. She moved permanantly to the United States in 1956.plain2012-05-04T15:48:02-07:00convictionFatherDivinePeaceMissionfaithreligionVimeoWill Luers41590030video2012-05-04T18:33:51
