Cathedral of Messiah
This is Indonesia latest mega-church. The different that this church has from other mega-churches (for eg. New Creation Church & City Harvest Church in Singapore) is that there is no 'health & wealth gospel' preached on its pulpit.
Instead of developing the cathedral building into a commercial centre with shopping complex and world-class entertainment avenues like that of the One-North project of New Creation Church, the Cathedral of the Messiah has a university and museum. That shows a lot of the aspiration and direction of each building project, don't you think so?
This cathedral belongs to the Gereja Reformed Injili Indonesia, the church where Rev. Dr. Stephen Tong serves as its senior pastor. Rev. Dr. Tong is also the main architect of the cathedral.
