The temple located in Hermosa Provincia to the east of the city is the main gathering center and international headquarters of the Church.
The solemn festivities ordained in the Decalogue were given the title of Holy Convocation.

During these solemn feasts, the Israelites consecrated their lives and time to serve God, putting aside their daily tasks.
Welcoming August 9, 2018
We Are the Light of the World
Main Activities of the Holy Convocation
The Welcoming Ceremony is an event in which the Apostle of Jesus Christ, Naason Joaquin Garcia, accompanied by the hosting church in Guadalajara, gives a fraternal welcome to the delegates from the states of the Mexican Republic as well as the countries where the Church is present.
It is an eminently fraternal event that sends a message of love and peace to all humanity by showing them that spiritual unity is possible, regardless of distance, borders, language, race or socioeconomic status.
Prior to the religious ceremony, a social ceremony is held where officials from the three levels of government, local, state and federal, express their congratulations to the delegates who come from more than 50 nations.
The Welcoming Ceremony marks the official commencement of the activities of the Holy Convocation.
In the afternoon, on the 14th of August, the religious service is carried out to allow the faithful who have been integrated into the Church through baptism to partake in the Holy Supper and in doing so, fulfill the commandment of Jesus Christ given through his Apostles:
“For I have received from the Lord that which also I delivered unto you: that the Lord Jesus, the same night that He was betrayed, took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body that is broken for you: Do this in remembrance of Me.” 1 Corinthians 11: 23-24
Every time that the members of the Church participate in this memorial, they proclaim the death of our Lord Jesus Christ until his return and obtain all the spiritual benefits and promises that his sacrifice brought for the benefit of the souls.
The Holy Supper service is broadcasted live through various TV and radio stations as well as online streaming, allowing the faithful believers all around the world who are unable to attend the Holy Convocation to join the spiritual festivity by gathering in their local houses of prayer.
On the morning of August 15, the Farewell Ceremony is carried out, in which the Apostle of Jesus Christ, Naason Joaquin Garcia bids farewell to the attendees, urging them to conserve the spiritual fellowship attained by the participation of the Holy Supper as well as the teaching they received during Holy Convocation.
In his farewell message, the Apostle of Jesus Christ motivates the faithful to continue to share the Christian gospel when they return to their places of origin.
