How did we start?
We started as a fellowship, (Singapore Karen Baptist Christian Fellowship) and the beginning worship venue was as a house church at one of our elder’s resident at an area called Pasir Panjang with only about 25 – 30 attendants, in 30th November 1997. As our worship attendants grow gradually, we can no longer worship at residential premises. From there, we moved to YMCA building at No.1 Orchard Road in 1998. Our numbers grew gradually until we were about 150 or more, again we have moved to The Boys’ Brigade Head Quarter, at 105 Ganges Ave in 2005. It we then we were still in the form of a fellowship.

From A Fellowship to A Full Fledge Church
As we proceed, we grew in size and numbers till 350 to 400 attendants. Singapore Baptist Convention was fully aware of our growth of fellowship, and advised us to get registered to the Registrar Of Societies, to become a fully recognized organization in Singapore. Without hesitation, we equipped ourselves with all the requirements for registration and by the abundant grace from our Heavenly Father, we succeeded in getting our registration and subsequently accepted as a member of Singapore Baptist Convention in year 2006.

May the blessing and grace of God be upon us all. We thank God for delivering us day by day in his love and mercy.

|My Prayer ...
Dear Lord Give me a heart like Daniel just like how he slept peacefully in a den of lions.
Dear Lord Give me wisdom like Joseph to resist temptation.
Dear Lord Give me ability like David to overpower a giant.
Dear Lord Give me zeal like Elijah to defy a heathen cult.
Dear Lord Give me heart like John the Baptist to redirect his prominence to Jesus.
Dear Lord Give me heart like Paul to sing stress away at midnight in jail.
Dear Lord Give me strength to follow Jesus’s steps.
In Jesus name.. amen.

|But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Romans 5:8 Come, just as you are. Do not wait until you feel you are good or perfect enough to come to Christ; He wants to give you a new heart and a new life, not force you to change your behaviour and habits. He loves us just as we are, but His great love will not leave us just as we are — we will be made new, learning to love God and loving others.
Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
Come, just as you are. Do not wait for the pleasures of this world to relieve you of your burdens before accepting Jesus’ invitation; He is the true rest-giver and Christ alone can relieve us of the weariness of this world. Come, taste and see that the Lord is good.
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Matthew 28:19-20
God invites us to come to Him, but He also instructs us to go to others. As His children, we sit at His feet for restoration and rest; as His disciples, we go out to the world to issue His invitation for them to come to Him for the very same restoration and rest that we have received from Christ Jesus. And as we go to others, the Holy Spirit goes with us — to the end of the age.
