Vision and mission
We call ourselves the Reformed Evangelical because we do reformed theology and exercise the spirit of evangelism. Reformed theology, we believe is a theology based on the sovereignty of God and so we make every effort to reinforce the authority of the Bible. Evangelical spirit reminds us, christians, that we should be the salt and light of the world, loving people who are still living in sin, who needs the atoning blood of Christ. We express this in our Creed, as well as in the burden and prayer that was expressed by Pastor Stephen Tong in opening GRII services in Jakarta.
Indonesian Reformed Evangelical Church (Gereja Reformed Injili Indonesia - GRII) was founded by Pastor. Dr. Stephen Tong. GRII was set to fight for a church that is faithful to the word of God. Therefore, GRII gives very special attention to the teaching of the word from the pulpit. We try to keep the pulpit truly be a place for faithful preaching, which is based on a careful exposition of the Word of God, and refrain from abusing the pulpit for personal gain, for worldly wealth gain or for other secular matters.
Our hope is for GRII existence to be a blessing to all christians around the place. Therefore, GRII never exist and stand for one particular group of Christians, but always strive so that we can be a blessing for as many people as possible with the widest possible scope.
