Successful Bethany Families Church

Successful Bethany Families Church

Successful Bethany Families Church is the seed of the vision of Pastor Dr Abraham Alex Tanuseputra (Pastor Alex). Following a miraculous encounter with God in 1965, where a boy was resurrected after being hit by his car, Pastor Alex has since dedicated his life to serve and follow the Lord. In 1978, the Lord called him to Surabaya, Indonesia to start Bethany Church as its founder and senior pastor.  

The church has grown extensively by God’s grace, and Bethany Church and its extensions (including Successful Bethany Families Church - Australia) have became a very strong movement, planting thousands of churches all across Indonesia on a global and international scale, training thousands of pastors and missionaries under their leadership. 


Southern Cross Association

Southern Cross Association (Southern Cross) is a network of ministries (over 200 ministries in nearly 30 nations) located primarily across the Southern Hemisphere in Australia/New Zealand, Africa and South America, with further links with other international Christian networks. The Network was formed in Perth, Australia in 1999 to bring together Christian leaders for building relationships, and providing encouragement and resources to advance the Kingdom of God on earth. 

Southern Cross is officially recognized by the Australian Government as a Christian denomination. This enables it to license and ordain ministers who can then be recognized as marriage celebrants under the Marriage Act.
