The Filipino-Chinese form a community of distinct culture mentality in the Philippines. They have their own set of values, worldviews, rituals, and religious traditions, They are not purely Chinese in orientation nor they are purely Filipino. Their specific place in the Philippine local church has been given importance by the Second Plenary Council of the Philippines. This study aims to know what culture mentality means and how it can be an area of inculturation. The author investigates on some of the main aspects of culture mentalities evident among Filipino-Chinese which will facilitate them in the assimimilation of the Gospel. The goal of the study is to verify if the Filipino-Chinese community possesses a missionary identity.
