The North Korea we read about today is more isolated and dangerous than ever. But a century before, it was where a Christian revival exploded like a modern-day version of Pentecost.
That revival – known as the Pyongyang Revival of 1907 – has served as the foundation for the growth of the church in Korea. Since that time, Christians have fled the North Korea Communist Regime by moving their churches underground or fleeing to South Korea – particularly its capitol city Seoul, which became the new home of Korean Christianity after World War II.
But according to experts, many still think of Pyongyang, North Korea as the true center of Korean Christianity and dream of the day the Christian church there is restored.
