Abstract
San Dol Church has practiced the polity of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) for the last ten years. The polity of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is effective in the legally oriented American churches, but it is not applicable directly to the Korean who are relationally oriented. We have found that the polity creates various problems and counter-effects. We understand the polity was designed for decency and order. But as we Koreans try to apply it, we find the polity to be unsuitable: for us who have different culture and tradition. In short, no policy for Korean churches should be formulated by the General Assembly without due attention to the Korean culture and tradition, the makeup of members, and the language problem. The Korean churches. should come up with· a concerted effort to ensure that the General Assembly consider the peculiar situations of the Korean churches.
