The GKISS has an ethnic Chinese background, like its sister church in Java (GKI). Groups of Chinese Christians sprang up for the first time in South Sulawesi about 1930. In 1932 the “Min Nan Kie Tok Kauw Hwee” (classis of South Sulawesi) was formed. In 1963 the classis took the name of GKISS. However, until 1972 there was only one congregation — in Ujung Pandang, the capital city of South Sulawesi. A synod was not convened until 1980; GKISS considers this year as its birth date. In 1997 this church had 4 congr and seven preaching stations in Southern and Central Sulawesi. In 1994 this church joined the council of Churches of Indonesia (PGI). It also maintains special ties with other churches in the region, mainly of Chinese background. The church owns a radio station, CRISTY RIA, as a means of evangelization as well as a magazine, Sola Gratia.
