The International service (English & Mandarin) was officially established on 19th February 2017, which is a part of the ministry of OTBC.
God has given us this new vision in terms of our church’s big vision “People, Location, Renewal” to start this new ministry at the beginning of 2017. It is also a story of historical inheritance, because one hundred years ago, there was a “Chinese Mission Hall” at OTBC.
Our Vision Statement:
We are a group of people originally from local and overseas, chosen by the Lord Jesus, being trained as His true disciples – a new creation, being led by the Spirit of truth to walk and to do His will. We will be like an instrument of righteousness, to be His workers into His harvest field, to sow and to reap from locally and overseas; with the help of the power of the Holy Spirit, we will be fruitful and able to make disciples of all nations to glorify Jesus’ name.
We have a Mandarin Bible study group every Thursday evening 6:00pm – 9:00pm. It starts with a simple meal, the Bible study starts at 7:00pm – 9:00pm, and ends with some prayers.
每周四晚上 6点到9点，有中文查经小组。 6点开始大家一起简单晚餐。7点到9点查考神的话语，然后以祷告结束查经小组聚会。
From God’s vision and His grace, we notice that the purpose of doing this ministry for us is to share the Gospel to those who are from East Asia or other places; to help and equip them to be rooted in His truth firmly; to help them establish an intimate relationship with God and find out their own gifts to serve; and to train them in being His true disciples with the help and the power of the Holy Spirit; and to empower them to reach out for the gospel.
Our bilingual service (the third service) with English and Mandarin is held every Sunday afternoon 2:00pm – 3:30pm. There is a simple lunch between the second service and the third service at 12:30pm – 1:30pm.
We warmly welcome you to join our Sunday worship!
