Chapter Summary

Most of the Evangelical churches or denominations have joined in a special council called the Persekutuan Injili Indonesia (PII), whereas the Pentecostal churches mostly are members of the Persekutuan Gereja-gereja Pantekosta di Indonesia (PGPI). Among more than 150 Evangelical and Pentecostal denominations or church and mission organisations in Indonesia, several began to write their respective histories. This chapter finds a chronological and institutional sketch regarding the presence and development of these Evangelical and Pentecostal missions, churches, and agencies. Corresponding to this historical description it briefly describes their respective basic-theological concepts and characteristics, which are the basis for their methods of mission or Evangelism. Indonesian Evangelical churches realise that the mission of the church is a holistic ministry. This means that the ministry of the church includes the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ and social responsibility.
