There are three different religions in this village which symbolized the variety of religious life in Indonesia. Balun people have three different faith, Islam, Hindu, and Christian. Even in one family, there are members who have different faith. Therefore, Balun is known as pancasila village. The relationship among Balun people is very interesting to study. The main problems in this study are how are theologies of Balun people, and how the implementation of theologies of Balun people, and how their theology towards the social ethics. The method which the writer used is field research by collecting data through observation and interview. The data source used is the informants such as villagers, government, religion figures, documentation and other literatures which support the study.

Based on the explanation above about “Theology Aspects in Harmony among Believers (A Case Study in Balun, Turi, Lamongan)”, The conclusions of this research are drawn in accordance with the result as follows: The Teology style of Balun people are mostly Social Religion, people who did not completely understand about religion, faith, and they even underestimated the religions’ norms for the sake of their harmony. Thus, because Balun people are original villagers who still has a strong nuance of kejawen [a culture and ritual of Javanese people] as well as the east Javanese people or new comers of people from Lamongan. It is proved by the concord of Balun people which has been exist since their ancestors live in the village. The implementation of theology of Balun people towards the social ethics can be clearly seen on the solidarity in every activities such as working together, cleaning the village, even in the religion activities such as tahlilan, nyepi, ied.fitry, ied.adha,etc as explained above, so that the harmony is always well-maintained. The practice of concord is caused by the understanding of religiosity of Balun people which are still categorized as Social Religion, so that they more concern of tolerance and concord among societies.
