This writer believes that one of the key ingredients to building an effective growing Korean church is spiritual gifts. If every Korean Christian were involved according to his spiritual gifts, he would be used in ministering where he is most usable. This writer finds that growing churches cannot be dissociated from growing Christians, when spiritual gifts are well used. Therefore, when Christians have found their gifts, knows the significance of their gifts and properly exercise them, the Korean church will grow. The purpose of this dissertation is to introduce readers to the best use of spiritual gifts in the contemporary Korean church, and to build up an important contribution to Korean church growth. One more purpose of this dissertation project is to understand what the biblical principles for the Church Growth Paradigm are, and to evaluate the problems hindering it in the Korean Church Growth.
