Despite the hostile propaganda saying that the religion in the DPRK is “banned” and the believers could face event “the death penalty”, the reality shows that the every DPRK citizen enjoys full religious freedom.

For example, in the Mangyongdae District in Pyongyang City, there is the Pongsu Church, which was built in 1988 and renovated in 2008, backed by the minds and efforts of Christians. The DPRK Christians lead a religious life freely here according to their will as the other believers do.

Many Christians hold service there every Sunday. South and overseas Koreans and foreigners also visit it to pray.
