Jehovah's Witnesses follow the pattern of first century Christianity, recognizing and teaching the Bible as God's Word of truth, believing it and following its commandments, thus maintaining constant neutrality toward political issues and activities. They advocate in their public preaching that God's Kingdom in the hand of Jesus Christ is the agency through which mankind will enjoy peace and security with the purpose to have a perfect life in a paradise to be restored on earth. Emphasis is on Bible education by the printed page, by Christian meetings and by public ministry. Organizes: systematic house-to-house ministry; congregational and home Bible studies; preaching in- and out-of-doors; use of radio, printing press and other aids in Bible education. All Witnesses engage in such activities as volunteers, and are not paid for their work. Each congregation conducts at least 5 educational meetings a week; activities are coordinated through regional Branch Offices. Over 6 million people worldwide attend local sessions of the Theocratic Ministry School - evening teaching sessions on the Bible at Jehovah's Witness meeting places; literacy and reading improvement classes are also conducted in some localities. National branches hold their own annual conventions. Also coordinates a network to bring humanitarian help in war-torn areas of Africa and in places suffering national disaster.
