Korean churches had developed through the spiritual movement in the past. In those movements, women who had shown more spiritual power and they were more energetic and sacrificing than men. Korean churches in which women outnumbered men are on the communal issue of how to use the women power and input them to mission activities. At first Paul also insisted on women's equality and then he tended to subordinate women to men by the flow of Jewish institution. Now the church community should make an effort to surpass the old system and tradition and find the hidden abilities of the women who were subjugated and buried in calmness and then the real spiritual leader should be chosen and allowed various gifts and let build the Kingdom of God. As the world changes, church should be changed. Korean church should reveal the infinite potential ability of women and should make the devotional love of them the very energy of new change.
