Congregation Profile

Karawaci Presbyterian Church (KPC)

Karawaci Presbyterian Church is an international, English-language church in the satellite city of Lippo Karawaci, Indonesia, 25km west of center city Jakarta. We are a global congregation representing over 20 countries and several continents, including ex-pats living in Indonesia for mission or work purposes, re-pats who have returned home to Indonesia from overseas studies or work assignments, students from across Indonesia and Southeast Asia, and local Indonesians who want to attend an English-language fellowship.  Our congregation is also diverse in age and stage of life, including senior citizens, families with children, singles, young adults, and university students.

The Lippo Karawaci community is somewhat transient, as mission and work assignments change; but we have experienced healthy continuity in our first few years as a church which began in the late fall of 2014. Faithful biblical exposition and a joyful community draw many to join us for as long as God calls them to this area.

In our KPC Sunday morning worship service our attendance has grown to around 250.  We have over 100 actual members of the church in 2020 and 2 ruling elders (one Indonesian and one American), an Indonesian assistant pastor, and 4 deacons (three of whom are Indonesians).

On Sundays, we utilize facilities for worship services and Bible classes on an associated university campus that has over 20,000 students.  The church offers Bible classes and small groups during the week for fellowship, discipleship, and prayer.

The pastor of KPC also will have the opportunity from time to time to preach at Sunday morning university student chapel worship services attended by over 4,000 students and the Tuesday university faculty and staff chapel service attended by over 5,000 people.  In addition, the pastor of KPC will be involved in helping to build a new denomination in Indonesia, the Presbyterian Reformed Evangelical Church of Indonesia (GPRII).  GPRII already has 3 significant church plants with more to come and a plan to prepare pastors and other leaders for these new churches.
