A note from the Senior Pastor
So nice to have you visit us in cyberspace!
Situated here in the beautiful City of Richmond, Metro Vancouver, we are a multi-lingual company of Christians originating from Canada and from all over the world. We delight in worshipping our Triune God, in learning His will as revealed in the Holy Bible, and in sharing the incomparable love of Christ our Saviour. So you can know us better, I encourage you to explore our website in full. Or better yet, drop by for a visit. You are always welcome!
- Pastor David Cheung
