Up to 1965 the history of Christianity in Luwu coincides with that of the Gereja Toraja, Luwu being part of the same mission field. However, not until 1930 was a missionary placed in Luwu proper. As the coastal areas had been Islamicized from the 17th century, the mission could only make headway in the mountain villages (first baptism April 21, 1918). After political independence was reached (1949), an Islam-inspired rebellion against the central government broke out. As a consequence the congr suffered, and some of the Christians had to settle in the coastal area. After order had been restored, the number of Christians in Luwu increased through immigration from the densely populated Toraja highlands. Regional feelings caused a number of Luwurese Christians to split off from the Gereja Toraja and constitute the GPIL. The church considers February 6, 1966, as its date of birth.

Die Gemeindeglieder sind überwiegend Kleinbauern und Tagelöhner. Deshalb legt die Luwu-Kirche besonderen Wert auf Bildungsprogramme, auf Sonntagsschule und Gemeinschaftserfahrungen.
