The research attempts to reveal the understanding of interreligious relation and the meaning of churches’ existence in the Residence of Non-Dinas TNI AL in Driyorejo, Gresik in which the phenomena have appeared to be a seriously concerned issues by the Gresik residents, particularly the Muslim community. The government has been, in fact, involved in order to cease differences between the Muslim and the Christian communities, in the area, in responding toward the issue through a series of intensive dialogues. This is a qualitative research, which focuses its settings on a number of prominent and important figures in Gresik along with various elements of the Gresik society. The Residence of Driyorejo Kota Baru where a number of churches rest is a locus of the research. To collect the data, the writer employs three main techniques, namely participatory observation, in-depth interview, and documentary study. The writer has successfully interviewed a number of people who appear as important informants in this research, ranging from common people, such prominent figures of the village, sub-district, and district as Head Driyorejo Village, Head of Driyorejo Sub-District, Vice Major of Gresik District, Head of Military Command of Driyorejo, Head of Police Sector of Driyorejo, as well as people who use the churches. The research shows that: 1. Interreligious relation in Gresik District, particularly in Driyorejo Sub-District, has been, in fact, thoroughly maintained. The Gresik residents put high tolerance and respect toward the implementation of religious doctrines and rituals performed by other religious adherents. It is, however, in terms of institutional level the tolerance seems to shift from relative tolerance to lazy tolerance. 2. The social issue concerning the establishment of the churches at the Residence of Non-Dinas TNI AL in Driyorejo has, once, led to community’s apprehension. 3. Within theoretical framework, the fact tells us that the religious adherents, i.e. Christians and Muslims, have their own perspectives regarding the existence of a number of churches in the Residence of Non-Dinas TNI AL Driyorejo. The Christians and Catholics tend to see the existence of the churches from theological perspective. To them, the church is a symbol of spirituality used to perform religious rituals and processions, especially as a place of prayer service and repentance. The Muslims, on the other hand, perceive the churches’ existence in the area as a symbol of expansionism of Christian missionaries who intend to bring and infiltrate their Christianization mission into the Muslim community. This was the reason behind their rejection by arguing that the establishment of the church violates the rules promulgated by the government.
