This chapter examines how Korean Americans view themselves vis-à-vis larger American evangelical attitudes towards politics. Korean Americans do not draw on particular congregational approaches to understand the relationship between religion and politics. Rather, they borrow from broader national Christian models for political action. It is shown that, surprisingly, some Korean Americans utilize political action models learned from black Christians.
