The church came into existence in 1975, when Pastor Seung Yong Kim arrived in Asunción to serve the growing Korean community in Paraguay. The Church was first called Iglesia Presbiteriana Asunción de los Coreanos. In 1986, with the arrival of more Korean missionaries, a Presb Reformed Mission was formed which integrated four different Korean missionary groups. In the same year a pastor of the National Presbyterian Church of Chile, Rev. Pedro Vega, was entrusted with establishinga theological seminary; the teaching language was to be Spanish. In 1993 the present name was adopted. The church is affiliated with the Korean Presbyterian Church of America (cf. United States no. 23) and depends on the South American Presbytery of this church.
