Back on January 2010, Rev. Dr. James Tan realized the need of believers for a Living God's Word and Holy Spirit in local Jakarta churches.

Rev. Dr. James Tan challenged a few people to be part of The Kingdom’s work; he emphasized a teaching of “living theology” through a solid, yet careful and detailed, Biblical understanding within the Spirit. Eventually, they gathered under the name of Covenant Life Community Jakarta (CLC Jakarta) with mandates as follows: Reach the Nation, Raise Sons and Daughters, Realize Destiny.

When the Father uttered His plan and will to Rev. Dr. James Tan, the challenge was real: for His children to be able to truly experience His goodness – not merely hear about it from religious theories. In 2014, Covenant Life Community Jakarta became Covenant Life Church Jakarta, located in Setiabudi area, South Jakarta.

In Covenant Life Church Jakarta, commonly known as CLC Jakarta, we primarily focus on learning and acknowledging the Father’s heart. We build a solid understanding that He is good and only has goodness for us. Sickness, lack, negative thought, depression, broken relationships are not part of our destiny! It is all the work of evil that has always been trying to steal our health, prosperity, encouragement, joy, or anything the ends in death and destruction!

From the beginning, CLC Jakarta has always taught The Word of God and how to experience His promises come to pass. “When you are strong inside, you will be strong outside!” Thus, we can have a natural lifestyle of witnessing and experiencing the Father’s goodness toward us.
