According to the 2007 census, 29.2% of the population at that time was Christian (18.3% identified themselves as Protestants, 10.9% as Roman Catholics), and 22.8% were Buddhist. Languages:  Korean.

The Truth was introduced in 1982 with the first baptism taking place in 1984. Memorial Meetings are held on Sundays, midweek Bible Classes and Interested Friends Seminars each Saturday.  Summer Bible Schools are held in July/August each year. Bible seminars in English have been conducted for over 1 year. There is an invitation for long-term fieldworkers in Seoul, Daegu and especially Busan where the ecclesia has funded a 2 bedroom fieldworker apartment.

Annually in August, the brothers and Sisters of South Korea hold a combined live in Bible Study Camp which runs over a long weekend to which all are invited. It’s an ideal time to get to know the brothers and sisters of South Korea.
