Interfaith marriage is a sensitive and crucial
issue for churches in Indonesia and for the religiously
plural Indonesian society. This study first deals with the
development of civil law, specifically from Marriage Law No.
1/1974. The stances of the churches in Indonesia are wide
ranging and include the history of church teaching, biblical
interpretation, and church regulations. This contextual
church polity study presents a new effort to formulate both
a theology of marriage and a family theology, specifically a
theology of interfaith marriage, and to formulate a relevant
and contextual church order.

Trimargono Meytrias Ebenheser (1971) studied
Theology in Yogyakarta, Indonesia and Amsterdam. He has been
an ordained minister in Salatiga, Indonesia since 1997.
