The purpose of this study was to confirm the factors of Religious Scheme Scale (RSS) using Indonesian Christian student sample. Participants were 230 students (male n= 100, female = 130) with age ranged from 15 – 23 years old (M = 16.8, SD = 1.588). Factor Analysis using Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) was conducted using AMOS 21 did not confirm the 15 – item 3 – factor as proposed by Streib et al. (2010) but 13 – item 3 factor model. The unsatisfactory 2 variables were found in xenosophia sub scale. This study was considered similar to Proios’ study (2015) in Greece which dropped 2 items from xenosophia sub scale. The predictive validity of RSS showed a good predictor of identity fusion. In conclusion, RSS is satisfactory to be implemented in Indonesian Christian student samples.
