Welcome to

On this home page we'll introduce 
Synod of Southern California and Hawaii
in Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

The white in the main backgound of the logo is the color of the common Korean symbolizing the Korean traditions and heritage from which the Hanmi Presbytery, its churches, together with their members, and coming to embrance the Christian faith..
The Korean have traditionally claimed themselves as a PEACE-LOVING people. The spirit of the peace loving people is symbolized by a white dove. This white dove is Christianized to symbolize a biblical red Holy Spirit as the Koreans began to embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ about a century ago, with the help of missionaries from the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
Two Crosses, one nested the others, are open at the top, incomplete, indication a faith that is still growing "unto the measures of the stature of the fullness of Christ, " as it is expressed in the letter to the church in Ephesians 4:13.
The other Cross is dark blue, representing the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the mother church.
The inner cross is light blue, standing for the Hanmi Presbytery and its member churches within the larger family of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
The eye of the red dove is white to symbolize that the Korean embraces the Christian faith from the Korean cultural perspective.
The red lettering bearing the Presbytery's name, speaks of the working of the Holy Spirit who alive empowers the Presbytery to continue its missions even under oppession and suffering. (Proverbs 1:29)
