Before HapDong divided in 1979, a neutral group representing about 400 congr formed a committee of 17 members with the mandate to work for the maintenance of unity. For two years they promoted reconciliation under the slogan “Be one.” The effort remained unsuccessful. The neutral group then sided with the directors of HapDong Seminary, who had seceded from the mainline group (Park Yun-Sun, Park Hyung-Ryong, Yoon Yung-Tak and Kim Myung-Hyuk), and planned for the foundation of a new denomination, GaeHyuk. Meanwhile the non-mainline group had divided into two denominations — JongAm and BangBae. An attempt was made to unite the three groups. In 1980 a united assembly was held (moderator: Kim In-Sung).But soon the three groups separated again since none of them was prepared to give up its seminary. In 1981 the neutral group, strengthened by representatives of ChongShin Seminary, constituted GaeHyuk I. JongAm and BangBae also founded separate denominations. Three new denominations had thus come into being: GaeHyuk, HapDongBoSu (BangBae), and HapDongBoSu (ChungDam).
