Korean Christian Federation
The EMS maintains relations with the Korean Christian Federation which is the official organisation of Protestant Christians in North Korea. According to their figures the Korean Christian Federation represents 12,000 Protestant Christians in the country. For example, the Korean Christian Federation includes the Bongsu Church and the Chilgol Church in the capital city Pyongyang and about another 500 house churches.
Christianity in North Korea
Since there is so little information on North Korea and no statistical material, there is hardly any evidence of Christian activities outside the Korean Christian Federation. Although the constitution guarantees the free expression and practice of religion in North Korea, North Korea is not a democratic country and all civil liberties are restricted. The commitment for peace and reunification on the Korean peninsula is therefore a major issue for the EMS Fellowship.
