The Presbyterian Church in the Republic of Korea (PROK) is a reformed church denomination and was the fruit of the movement to reform the Presbyterian Church to create a true church of Jesus Christ, setting aside the secular elements, authoritarianism, and rigid dogmatism so deeply rooted in the Korean Presbyterian Church. Since 1953, the PROK has continued to develop a prophetic stance in its understanding of the church and its mission in society.
The PROK is comprised of 1,601 local churches scattered around the country, with 320,000 members and 2,672 ministers. The central legislative body is the General Assembly that meets annually and in between meetings the Executive Committee acts on its behalf. The church’s program ministries are guided by 18 Standing Committees and are implemented by the office of the General Secretary and the national secretariat.
