The purpose of this thesis is to study the ways of revitalizing Korean church worship through blended worship, to preserve the essence of worship, to resolve the worship conflicts of young and older generations, to seek the vitalization of worship and to present concrete alternatives. In the current church, the older generations tend to keep the traditional worship, and the younger generations tend to prefer modern worship, and the conflicts in the worship form in the church arise and worship in different ways, or worship is stagnated due to passive participation. This study will examine the essence of worship by biblical, theological, and historical perspectives and recognize that it is not a form most important to the cultural approach and worship of worship for the elderly generation, but a true worshiper. And this study emphasizes the essence of worship for younger generations and focuses on suggesting integrated worship that balances emotional worship with rational worship as a way of revitalizing worship. Through this study, we will examine the essence of worship by biblical, theological, and historical perspectives. It is important for the elderly generation to recognize the true worshiper, not the form most important to the cultural approach and worship of worship. And worship in a balanced manner.
