What is OMS?
OMS is a useful tool if you are searching for your Heavenly Spouse. Used across the world by many individuals, it is unique in its own right. Regardless of your faith, culture, and status, OMS will help you achieve the Marriage-Blessing.
What is OMS?
Online Matching System (OMS) is a service provided by Cheon Il Guk Incorporated to any individual who seek the Marriage-Blessing.
This same service is also provided to the Blessed Family Departments of the Unification Movement, worldwide, that they may support and help their members find their Heavenly Spouse.
OMS works in conjunction with the various Blessed Family Departments of the Unification Movement and does not override their authority. OMS is simply a tool to facilitate the matching of Unificationists and associates according to their faith.
What does Cheon Il Guk mean?
Cheon Il guk is a Korean expression that means, "Nation of Cosmic Peace and Unity." The word "nation" in this case is not a geographic area but represents a universal group of individuals aspiring to build a world centered on the principles of True Love and True Service.

Not only for
The Marriage Blessing that began with Rev. Moon's own followers has expanded to become an interreligious affirmation of the universal importance of marriage and family, more fundamental than our various faith traditions. Since 1992, clergy and members from many faiths have participated in the International and Interreligious Marriage Blessing Ceremony. Married couples join to rededicate their love to God and each other, renewing their marriage on the foundation of true love and Blessing that True Parents have brought to the world.

Thank you. This letter really helped free me up. I felt really understood as a young first gen. It is the reason I haven't been working on my process recently. It hurt my self-esteem and was stopping me from seeing my true value to God and his plan to restore the world. I also have grown in my understanding of the heart it takes for the advisors to provide a suggestion to me and I will respect that much more moving forward.
I truly appreciate your concern and investment in OMS. At this time I'm waiting patiently to be interviewed by a sister in my hometown. Without your support and enthusiasm, I believe working through details to become a candidate would have overwhelmed me. Although I began this process in 2010, and just now feel close to becoming a candidate after 4 1/2 years, I've learned quite a bit from my Heavenly Parent about patience and sincerity.
Thank you for your constancy, effort and example. I have a dog, and it touched my heart that you showed a picture of your dog and cat in the newsletter. It is amazing how much help pets, and the creation overall have been in this family, and in helping my son and I manage stress and conflicts. He is over 15 now, but I wish I'd thought of getting a dog to walk and for my son to interact with at an earlier juncture in our life. Perhaps that's why you included their picture? Our dog is the one member of our family that we can always count on to make us laugh with or at her or at one another!
When I finally get all parts of the BFM application completed, I'll begin again on the OMS site. It can't hurt to be as thorough as possible.

This is great. I feel this is really precious. I want to share it with the young first gen in our community, all of whom are currently going through matching education. I feel you really highlighted some concerns they have and your words were soothing. I will share this with the community as I feel that not enough people are even aware of OMS, let alone your heart and investment behind the project.
Thank you, Thank you.

All answers below are listed in: Finding the One (Page 11) handbook.
The handbook mentioned above is a very important read for anyone who seek the marriage-blessing. Cheon Il Guk Incorporated encourage everyone to read it. It will help you be well prepared and make it easier for when you use the Online Matching System to find your spouse.
…If I’m an active Unification church member? Yes! If you have been an active member of our community for a year or longer, and are at least 20 years of age, tthis handbook (Finding the One) is for you. In order to begin your process we encourage you to use this handbook as a guide, and contact your local pastor about completing any required Blessing education.
…If I recently joined? Yes! As stated in the overview, a minimum of one year of active membership and sexual abstinence is required to begin your matching process. However, if you have yet to meet these requirements reading this handbook will give you a clear understanding of how to proceed. We encourage you to use this time in your new life of faith to develop a good understanding of the Divine Principle and its application, as well as the importance of a spiritual life.
…If I joined the church with my parents? Yes! If you joined the church with your parents, it’s natural that they may be involved in your matching process. If parents are involved in your matching, you may choose to follow the process outlined in the Family Matching Handbook. The essential points of the matching process in both handbooks are the same. The main difference is the family matching process is supported by parents whereas the Unificationist matching process is supported by Matching Advisors. In both, you have ownership of your final matching decision. If your parents are supporting your process, you're not required to have a matching advisor; however, advisors can help you in many ways. Likewise, if your parents are not actively involved, you need to seek the support of a Matching Advisor, and follow the guidelines in this handbook.
…If I’m a Unificationist whose is over 40? Yes! True Parents recommend that if you are over 40 you should take the primary responsibility for finding your eternal partner. Matching advisors, the Online Matching System, and the USA Matching Committee respect your experience and maturity. We will work together to empower you and support you in your journey to find your eternal spouse.
…If I was divorced or previously Blessed? Yes! The end of a marriage or Blessing is a painful, life-changing experience, for the couple and for any children involved. When children are involved, their well-being comes first. The decision for a parent to seek the Blessing is a family decision, and should be embraced and supported by everyone, including one's children.
Time and care should be taken to heal any hurt, anger, or resentment. It may be easier for you to be Blessed with someone who has had similar relationship experience. Any divorce or annulled Blessing must be legally documented and reported honestly during your application process.
…If I’m of another faith and interested in receiving the Blessing with a Unificationist? Yes! The guidelines in this handbook are extremely helpful for anyone seeking to be matched and Blessed. If you are of another faith seeking to be matched with a member of the Unificationist community, contact the local Unification Movement pastor. They will be happy to assist you in finding and selecting a matching advisor. Your advisor will help you qualify as a candidate and develop your personal matching plan. They will assist you, connect you to the Online Matching System, and support you in finding your eternal spouse.
…If I want to be Blessed to someone of another faith? Yes! If you have decided to marry outside of your own faith yet you still wish to be Blessed this handbook is for you. You understand the value that the Blessing holds and you are choosing to share that with your future eternal spouse. This is a beautiful gift, and we are honored to have your future spouse as a part of our growing family.
…If we are already married? Yes! The Blessing gives you an opportunity to renew your married life centered upon God and True Parents. Though the matching is not involved, most of the other requirements do apply. Your Blessing education, your pastoral interview, and spiritual conditions prepare your hearts to receive the Blessing. You are already married, and you are already a couple rededicating your life together and love for one another to God.
