About our pastor

 “Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus! First of all, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you all and thank you for visiting the homepage of our Grace English Ministry, Sung Duk Presbyterian Church.

It is such a blessing and an honor to be called to serve international communities as a Church. I have always been involved in some kind of international work as a professor of seminaries, universities and also as a preacher of churches in Korea as well as in Europe. Even though overcoming cultural differences can be challenging, I have witnessed a powerful synergy that can be generated through international communities and partnerships. We believe what unites us together is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Through him we are saved from the bondage of sin into eternal life. Through him we are called to build the community of church together that will witness the Truth of the Gospel to all the nations.

Our visions are as follows;

First, we are a learning Church (Acts 2:42). This is the foundation of our Church. Our main objective as a Church is to learn about Jesus through the Word of God. We believe that Jesus Christ is all-sufficient and through knowing him, we discover our true identity; the image of God that is engraved in all of us since creation.

Second, we are a caring and a loving Church (Acts 2:44~45). As a Church, we value very highly genuine fellowship in Christ to which people from all backgrounds and cultures are welcome. Just like Jesus Christ willingly died on the cross for our sin, we are indebted and thus obliged to reflect that love to our brothers and sisters.  

Third, we are an evangelizing Church (Acts 2:47). We believe that a true worship leads to evangelism (i.e. reaching out to others and witnessing the Gospel) so that we may faithfully fulfil the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19~20). Our mission is to preach the unchanging Word to an ever-changing world; Jesus Christ has died on the cross and has risen from the dead so that we may live in the fullness of God’s blessing!

If you are in Daegu city or in an area close by; please feel free to join us and become part of our family!

Warmly, in Christ,

Dr. Sungho Choi”
