The KIRP, chaired by Rev. Changwon Shu, seeks to promote conservative Reformed-Puritan preaching through conferences, the translation of sound literature (such as Gospel Worship by Jeremiah Burroughs and other Puritans, Hebrews by A.W. Pink, and books by Martyn Lloyd-Jones), and the publication of a bimonthly periodical called the Banner of Truth. Seventy per cent of the articles are translated from the United Kingdom's Banner of Truth associated with Banner of Truth Trust and the remainder of the articles are contributed by Rev. Shu and other Korean pastors.

The institute focuses on the Biblical Preaching and Reformed Theology in the ministry of the Word. It meets twice a year with special speakers from either the United Kingdom or the United States.
