In early November 1992, Daniel and Karen Ong first set their feet on Perth, Western Australia to serve prayer fellowship for the Indonesian people, which was known as Indonesian Family Fellowship at that time. As the name suggested, this fellowship had a strong emphasize on the importance of family, which is still carried on until now. On the 4th of May 1994, the fellowship became a church, hence the name changed to Indonesian Family Church (IFC). By the grace of God, the church grew significantly and started reaching out to Indonesian people in other cities in Australia and in other countries (Indonesia, Singapore & Beijing). Indonesian Family Church is also known as “Oikos Church” due to its strong value on family (Oikos means Family in Greek).
Church is a family, Oikos is MY Family, MY Future & MY Legacy
Oikos is a Greek Word of “Family”. We have this motto to signify that whatever place you come from, whatever background you were born into, IFC is your family as long as you live here in Perth. We invite you to come and join our small group, called OIKOS, so we can grow together to be more like Christ.
