Abstract

Christian education is the task of the church in educating the congregation so that they hold fast to their faith. In the midst of information openness, Christians often get confused and doubt by the many different points of view. The emergence of a lot of fake news, hoaks and hate speech on social media which is one side of information disclosure has a significant impact on the life of the faith of the church. Christian education is a means of the church to remain present as a helper of the congregation so that faith and hope continue to grow in a situation of uncertainty in the midst of information disclosure. The faith community approach in Christian education is a learning process in the participation of the community of faith that aims to help the congregation find meaning in its presence in the middle of the world as an authentic person in its relations with others, the church and the world.
