Purpose of study: This study aims to explain Max Weber's thesis on the ethics of Protestantism and its relevance to the style of Christianity in Maluku.

Methodology: The method used in this study is descriptive qualitative with an inductive approach. Data analysis will use metaphor, narration, and semiotics as a step to place historical facts into qualitative data related to research problems.

Main Findings: The results achieved in this study are that the reality of Protestantism in Maluku is especially at the GPM, in its correlation with Weber's Thesis it is clearly stated that Protestant Calvinists are people who survive and save so that they succeed in the economic world and become capital owners (Capitalism), on the contrary, the Calvinist Protestants in Maluku (GPM) did not show that attitude.

Implications: This concludes that Protestant Ethics as a contextual demand in this study was put forward because of the attention to the context of the meaning and articulation of contemporary Protestantism in Maluku.
