ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the concerns raised by Christians in South Korea over the sincerity of ministers and congregants at Bongsu Church in Pyongyang, North Korea. According to a reporter for "Daily NK," all congregants and officials at the church are members of a political party. The Bongsu Church is a three-story building that can accommodate 1,200 people. North Korean believers and Christian organizations contributed for the construction of the church.
