Understanding Korean-American Children's God-Concept in Relation to their Self-Concept Development

From: Volume 2, Issue 2: Fall 2005, 25th Anniversary Issue Pages 282-301


This study addresses the effect of a positive God-concept on the development of a positive self-concept. Twenty-four Korean American children (12 girls and 12 boys) from age nine to eleven who had been attending church during the last five years, were interviewed. The results of the study show that one of the critical roles in Christian Education is to help children develop a positive God-concept in order for them to develop a positive self-concept, which in turn, can influence their spiritual development.
