This dissertation examines the Ga-Jung Church's evangelism strategies and their impact on church growth. Chapter 1 addresses the Ga-Jung church as a renewal model, which is directed toward conversion church growth based on biblical principles. Attention is given to various Ga-Jung church components, establishing unique, recognizable Ga-Jung characteristics. Chapter 2 explores the church growth concept, which includes the definition and measurement of church growth. Additionally, investigating the meaning of church growth based on the study of each word, including many scholars' church growth definitions, offers differing perspectives regarding significant issues for further study. Chapter 3 begins with the description of the Ga-Jung church's biblical background, including Ga-Jung's origin, development, and ministry philosophy. It then analyzes the Ga-Jung church's evangelistic methods and their achievement of church growth based on previous examples of the growth definition. Chapter 4 proposes the effect of the Ga-Jung church's evangelistic strategy on church growth. This chapter summarizes the influence of churches that have been changed into the Ga-Jung church system as well as ways the results of their evangelistic method will accommodate current church life. Chapter 5 presents a few suggestions along with strengths and weaknesses of the Ga-Jung church's evangelistic approach.
