The 2pm International service started in 2017 as a part of the ministry of OTBC. We have seen people who were local and from overseas that joined us to serve our Lord Jesus with their gifts and love and passion for Christ.
We thank God for His faithfulness throughout the last two years. He has done marvellous work in our midst to save, restore, reconcile and heal, based on His truth. We also have witnessed that He was doing what the vision statement said, which was in the light of the church vision – “People, Location, Renewal”:
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 seek a deep and intimate relationship with the Lord personally, and loving connection with others in the church community and beyond. This is in order that we may grow mature in faith, to be fully prepared as His co-worker for His Kingdom’s use. Therefore, some of the ways to practice our faith in the church community can be to join a small group, use our gifts to serve one another, engage with the church in many programmes, and so on.
So far, we have had Indian, Filipino, South Korean, Chinese and Kiwis together to worship Jesus. Due to our Chinese who do not understand English sermons very well, we deliver the Sunday message in English and Mandarin. But we read the bible verses in different languages with English, so that everyone may enjoy the beauty, diversity and unity of the creating work of God in language and in love.
No matter your nationality, background, culture or language – you are welcome to be part of our International service. We value being a multicultural and interethnic group together as we seek His Kingdom to come and His will be done in this place. We look forward to meeting you at the International service!
