Who we are
Christian Covenant Fellowship Limited (also known as CCF Singapore) is a bible-based evangelical church founded in Singapore.
CCF Singapore started out as a home church in May 2006 with two families having Bible studies. The regular Bible studies soon became regular Sunday gatherings with a focus on studying God's Word and encouraging one another in the Christian faith. A steady increase in attendees then began – from visitors from Manila to friends working in Singapore. Last May 2009, we were officially registered as Christian Covenant Fellowship Limited. A year later, in May of 2010, our status as a charity under the Charities Act was approved.
A greater blessing, though, is to see God's fingerprints – through restored relationshipos, transformed lives, new friends committing their lives to God, and the amazing answer from God on the approved license application of the church as an independent church in Singapore. God is indeed an awesome, generous, loving and faithful God!
Where we are now
Aside from the increasing number of members, an even stronger focus in our church now is growth in God's Word and discipleship. We believe that every believer should be a minister – abiding and growing in God’s Word and actively living out our faith.
Currently, we have 34 discipleship groups meeting regularly at various places. By God's grace, He has given us the privilege to further His kingdom through these groups.
Several retreats for singles, couples, and others are also all being organized on a yearly basis. Training and equipping seminars are being held to foster growth. Ministry groups were founded and are now actively involved in helping out with the needs of the church.
In Christ, we continue to commit ourselves to answer the call of the Great Commission – in making committed followers of Christ – and in helping every believer become a minister for God.
Our Statement of Purpose
We exist to glorify God by obeying the Great Commandment and the Great Commission in the power of the Holy Spirit.
The Great commandment
"'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind'. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself'" Matthew 22:37-39
The Great Commission
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of age." Matthew 28:19-20
To make committed followers of Jesus Christ with Christ-like character; abounding in love for God and others who are actively involved in making spiritual generations of disciples.
We envision ourselves to be a church where every believer is edified, equipped and empowered to be a minister for Christ – thus our goal of helping Every Believer Be a Minister of God (EBAM).
Our Statement of Faith
We have our set of beliefs that we firmly hold on to.
We believe that there is only one sovereign God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is the independent Creator of the heavens and the universe and is all-knowing, all-powerful, just, loving, completely truthful, and holy.
Cf. Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Isaiah 6:3; Titus 1:2; John 3:16; 1 Chronicles 29:11-12.
We believe that the Bible (66 books: 39 Old Testament books and 27 New Testament books) is the Word of God – supernaturally inspired, inerrant, and infallible. It is our supreme authority in all matters of faith, doctrine, and conduct. We also affirm its sufficiency, clarity, and necessity for genuine Christian living.
Cf. 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalms 119:105; Psalms 19:7-11; Proverbs 30:5.
We believe that salvation, with its forgiveness of sins, impartation of a new nature, and eternal life, is a free gift from God. This gift is received when a person trusts in Jesus Christ to be his only Savior and Lord. It is given by God’s grace and cannot be earned by man through good works, baptism, church membership or any other means.
Cf. Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; John 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1.
We believe that water baptism by immersion is an act of obedience to Christ’s command. It is a public confession of our personal faith in Jesus Christ. As Christ died for our sins, we were raised from death; we walk in newness of life with Him.
Cf. Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9; Colossians 2:12; Romans 6:3-4.
We believe that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man, that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and and that He was born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life. He was crucified, and He died to pay the penalty for our sins. By His blood, the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect sacrifice for sin once and for all time.
He was raised from the dead on the third day. Later, He ascended to the Father’s right hand where He reigns as the Head of the Church and intercedes for believers. We believe He is coming again, bodily and visibly, to the earth to set up His Kingdom.
Cf. Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5,14; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13; Ephesians 1:22; Hebrews 7:25.
We believe that it is God’s will and command for every Christian to be actively engaged in telling others how to establish a personal relationship with God, through faith in Jesus Christ, and in discipling those who respond to the good news of salvation.
Cf. 2 Timothy 1:7-8, 4:2; 2 Corinthians 5:19-20; Matthew 28:19-20.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is God and possesses all Divine attributes. He indwells all believers and baptizes them all at the moment they trust in Jesus Christ to be their only Savior and Lord. He controls all true believers and empowers them to live the Christian life in response to their obedience, confession of sins, and submission to Him.
Cf. Romans 8:9-11; 2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18.
We believe that good works are not the means to salvation but the expected byproduct in the life of a true believer in Christ. The evidence of true salvation and true faith is repentance, good works, and changed lives. It is every believer’s responsibility to pursue a life of good works through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Cf. Ephesians 2:8-10; Galatians 6:9-10; Matthew 5:16; 1 Timothy 6:18.
