This project examines the worship in Korean churches in the postmodern era, and presents the most suitable worship model for the congregation. The Korean church is acknowledged for accomplishing one of the greatest church growths within the shortest period of time. Currently they are going through a transitional era of crisis and chaos. The worship field has not changed enough, since Christianity was introduced to this country one hundred years ago. Instead, they have had conflict between traditional and contemporary styles, unable to find the right solution. This project studied specific suggestions for implementing a strategic task, along with field research of selected Korean churches, and produced a specific worship model as a result. The primary goal of this study is to reach a consensus on healthy worship practices for the local church based on theological, biblical foundation, and historical perspectives.
