GBI WTC was born from a direct transmitted vision to Ps. Yonathan Wiryohadi, Ir., DR. to build an altar for the Lord. So along with Ps.Djuhardi Hardja SE, Ps. Bebas Pinem Ir., MM MTh, Ps. Lie Darmawan, S.kom and several others agreed to hold the inaugural service of GBI WTC on February 22, 2004, held at the Ballroom of Mall WTC Matahari. It was attended by about 300 believers, both adults and children. On God’s favor, the new altar must be established as the foundation / main basis of all activities and services carried out in the church.
The altar speaks of God’s favorite place, where He can manifest Himself to His people to experience personal encounter, growing in Him, having a change of life and become a blessing to the community and city.
As time goes by, GBI WTC continues to experience growth and added soul is very significant. There are about 11,000 believers and 33 branches and family churches has been entrusted to GBI WTC to be nurtured.
With a powerful way, diverse ministry was born to occupy the seven pillars of life (Pillar of Spiritual and Social, Family Pilar, Business Pilar, Education Pilar, Pilar of Government and Politics, Pilar of Arts and Entertainment, Media Pilar). Working and joining hands together, ministries were actively engaged and aligned in God’s guidance to reach souls and contribute positively to the settlement of various issues that occur in communities, cities and nations.
