The Karonese were the only Batak tribe not to be served by the RMG. Christianity came to Karoland (North Sumatra) in 1890 with the first missionaries of the Nederlandsch Zendelinggenootschap. As the Karonese considered the mission part of a white conspiracy to rob them of their lands, growth was very slow initially. In 1941, when the church became independent and the first Karonese pastors were ordained, there were 5,000 Karo Christians. During the turbulent 1940s the church maintained itself, but after 1950 mass movements toward Christianity occurred. From 1980 onward evangelization among the Karonese had to be carried out in competition with Islam. In 1979 the church demonstrated its internal growth with the drawing up of a confession of faith (PengakuanDasar),which was expanded in 1984. Also, the church abandoned the negative attitude toward traditional culture it had inherited from the mission, and reformulated its church order (1959, 1971, 1976). The GBKP has a number of schools and clinics, and supports a Christian orphanage, home for the elderly, and credit bank. It had woman elders from the beginning, woman deacons from 1961, and ordained woman ministers from 1987. The church considers April 18, 1890, as its birth date.
