Introduction / History

The island of Bali is probably better known than the entire country of Indonesia. The word "Bali" brings to mind visions of a tropical paradise. Its beauty, friendly people, exquisite art, and unique culture have made Bali a favorite destination for millions of tourists from around the world. On this "Island of the gods" reside the Balinese. However, many Balinese can also be found on the nearby island of Lombok, as well as in Lampung, Sulawesi, South Kalimantan, Sumbawa and Papua. Others live in Malaysia, a beautiful country near Indonesia.


Where Are they Located?

Most Balinese live on the Indonesian island of Bali, but some have migrated to nearby Malaysia or Australia. There are a small number of Balinese people in the US as well.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Most Balinese live in very close-knit villages with strong family, social, religious and economic interrelationships. The Balinese are known throughout the world for their artistic abilities.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Hinduism is the primary religion of the Balinese people in Indonesia and Malaysia. Even though Hinduism has greatly affected the culture, the Balinese have managed to maintain their original culture, so that Balinese Hinduism differs from Indian Hinduism.


What Are Their Needs?

The Balinese need to experience the lovingkindness of the Lord, and forsake all other gods.


Prayer Points

* Pray that Balinese elders in Malaysia will have dreams and visions of Jesus that will open their hearts to Him.
* Pray for spiritual openness among the Balinese people.
Pray that as Balinese Hindus embrace Christ that they will forsake all other gods.
* Pray for a disciple making movement among the Balinese in Malaysia that will spread to their communities in Indonesian and Australia.
