22 March 2020
Due to the continuing severity of the Covid-19 community outbreak the GCC Leadership has decided not to resume our physical worship service this Sunday, 29th March. Both the GCC Icon and Olympic services will be suspended.
You are invited to join us instead for a worship service online. Please click here to Gospel Community Church Hong Kong Facebook page at 10:30AM.
We're glad that you've come to our web Site. Hope you can also join us physically to worship among us this special Sunday morning. We hope that you will discover Christ's coming to you by His Spirit through what is sung, said and seen.
Please fill in a welcome slip so that we can keep in touch with you whether you are visiting us or you want to know more about our community.
Kevin Costner plays Ray Kinsella in the 1989 movie Field of Dreams. In the film Kinsella hears a voice telling him to build a baseball diamond in the middle of his corn field. Against all odds he goes along with the vision, experiences a miracle, and finds peace with his late father.
Similarly, in 445BC, Nehemiah was supernaturally guided – not by a made-up “voice” but a vision from the Father – to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem that had been destroyed 140 years earlier. Against the threat of hostile forces he mustered the help of fellow Jews for the daunting building project. In the end Nehemiah not only secured the perimeter of the Holy City but reestablished a community that lived in proper relationship with God.
Christians today live in troubled times, just like Nehemiah did. Opposing worldviews and declining morals have eroded the foundations of the Church. God said this of His people, “I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap….” (Ezekiel 22:30).
Are you willing to “stand in the gap” like Nehemiah? The sermon series will challenge us to live courageously amidst a world hostile to the gospel and employ principles of building a community of the faithful.
Now the men and their wives raised a great outcry against their fellow Jews. 2 Some were saying, “We and our sons and daughters are numerous; in order for us to eat and stay alive, we must get grain.”
3 Others were saying, “We are mortgaging our fields, our vineyards and our homes to get grain during the famine.”
