  • The Youngsan Theological Institute is a professional theological institute focused on Youngsan Dr. Yonggi Cho’s (hereinafter ‘Youngsan’) hope theology by communicating and interacting with educational and research institutes in and outside of Korea. Youngsan Theological Institute was founded in 1990 as the Full Gospel Theological Institute until it was renamed to its current name in 2004. Youngsan Theological Institute seeks to establish Youngsan Theology by systematizing it based on the Fivefold Gospel, the Threefold Blessing, and the Fourth Dimensional Spirituality according to the Scripture and Christian tradition within the context of the Spiritual Awakening. We hope to partake in advancing Pentecostal Theology and pneumatology. Moreover, we work to achieve our goal of globalizing Korean theology through research and publication. We also began to hold annual Youngsan International Theological Symposiums since 2002, which increased communication with international scholars and thus has broadened the significance of Youngsan Theology.
