This church was founded by immigrants, mainly public officers originating from other regions in Indonesia, apparently because they did not feel at home in the existing Christian churches (Meth, Pent). Initially development was slow. In the 1990s the church reached out to the numerous Dayak people (15% of the population) and grew rapidly. In West Kalimatan 9% of the population are Prot, 20% RCath, and 52% Muslim. This church has no relations with any church or mission abroad.Itconsiders February 10, 1963, as its birth date.
 

Note: We did not manage to contact this church. Therefore, we cannot exclude that its address has changed or that the church does not exist any more.
Whoever has information about this church may contact us. We will be happy to update our information.
