This chapter shows that the two congregational models of the relationship between religion and civic life found in ethnic-specific and multiethnic churches provide Korean Americans with resources to create identities as American citizens. Korean Americans use the different interpretations of Christianity to create civic identities with overlapping religious, class, racial, and ethnic components. Such perspectives structure how Korean Americans view their relationship with other ethnic groups, particularly those with black Americans, and provide Korean Americans with diverse ways to view the image of Asian Americans as model minorities.
