The inter-religious life in Denpasar Bali experiences ups and downs in harmony, between the minority and the majority, especially between Muslims as the minority religion and Hinduism as the majority religion. As the majority religion, Hinduism influences the practice of people's daily lives, including non-Hindu. In contrast, each religion has a way of life directed by their respective faiths, and there is often friction in practice in the field.Baitul Mukminin Mosque, as a representation of Muslims in Denpasar Bali in Panjer Village, has been able to maintain harmonious living together with Hindus as the majority for many years. This study aims to find a model of the approach taken by the Baitul Mukminin mosque management to the indigenous people of Panjer Village, who are predominantly Hindu.This research method uses descriptive qualitative research with a case study approach. Data were obtained from in-depth interviews with mosque administrators and community leaders in Panjer Denpasar village, document studies and field observations. The analytical technique used is the Miles and Huberman model, starting from data reduction, presenting data and drawing conclusionsThe study results indicate that the Baitul Mukminin Mosque uses a community relations approach model through collaboration with the community, maintaining a harmonious life between religious communities. So a cooperation model from the Community Relations approach can preserve the harmonization of inter-religious life. The involvement of the majority religious community in the activities of religious minorities (Muslims) is an approach that needs to be taken to maintain the harmony of inter-religious life.
