Abstract:The limited purpose of this study was to determine the pastors' understandings and perception of factors that currently threaten the unity of the Methodist Church in Indonesia (GMI). The literature reviews multifaceted principles of church unity and outlines some insights and practical suggestions for GMI to grow in both dimensions of unity—inner unity (unity of the Spirit) and outward unity (institutional unity). This was a qualitative study that employed three methods: semi-structured interview with open-ended questions, observation, and review of related collections and documents. The research started with the tracing of the history of the Methodist Church in Indonesia and then interviewed forty GMI pastors and five church denominational leaders. The research identifies the unarticulated threats that have made unity difficult for GMI and provides some possible approaches to the solutions.
