The Korean Christian Federation is a state-controlled Protestant body of North Korea that was founded in 1946. The institution today comprises twelve thousand North Korean Christians, and acts as an inter-denominational organization by playing an important liaison role between the government and the Christians. It is one of three official Protestant bodies recognized in the country.

In the late 1940s the organization was led by Kim Il Sung's mothers cousin Kang Ryang-uk.[1]
