Sungrak Church as a Congregational Church

Sungrak Church was founded as an independent church which pursues the Bible as the supreme law of the church. The Bible speaks of the church as follows: Ephesians 1:22-23 states that Jesus is the Head of the Church and the Church is His Body. Sungrak Church is a congregational church, following the motto, ‘Let Us Return to the Bible’. It means that there is no higher institution that mediates between Jesus and the church. Thus, God’s revelations should be directly given to the congregation without any higher institution or assembly in between.

The Berea Movement of Sungrak Church is a movement that asserts believing and following the Bible, just as it is written. Sungrak Church is an independent church that does not belong to any denomination. Instead, it is a gathering of Baptists who follow the commandment of Jesus and it is a congregation of those who follow the Bible. There is no other church like Sungrak Church because Sungrak Church was founded as an independent church. An independent church has its own ideals and values. There might be some permissible independent church alliance, but each church is permitted to have different ideals and values. Each church must pursue its own unique ideals all the way. Therefore, an independent church reflects the founder’s beliefs and will.
