Abstract
The researcher conducted an archival research to formulate an integrated paradigm of a missional ecclesiology for Korean diaspora, by identifying and describing its core elements. A paradigm was formulated by integrating socio-cultural characteristics of Korean diaspora church and framework of culturally-appropriate, theologically-sound and theoretically-coherent missional ecclesiology for Korean diaspora. Eight criteria of missional ecclesiology were identified, and three ontological values were identified: to be sent by the Triune God; to represent the reign of God in the through Jesus Christ; and to be led by the Holy Spirit. Implications of each value are elaborated in the context of Korean diaspora.
