Evangelical Free Church of China - Kong Fok Church (“Kong Fok Church” which means Hong Kong Island Gospel Church) is one of Evangelical Free Churches in Hong Kong. Kong Fok Church was founded in 1984 with a mission to reach out and serve the community in Central, the main business district of Hong Kong. As we set up our own church premises in Admiralty in 2003, we sharpened our focus on business people and professionals working in Central and their families and friends. In 2014, as we celebrated the 30th anniversary of our founding and His blessings , we changed the vision for our church to being “A Blessing to Hong Kong and Beyond to All Nations” and the mission for our church to “Expand the Kingdom of God on Earth through Evangelism, Disciple Making, and Community Service”. The new vision and mission free us from the geographic and occupational constraints that we put on ourselves. In 2016, we started a Mandarin Worship in August and an English Worship in October to substantially enlarge our service target to include new comers from China and around the World.
We brand our English Worship “KFC Int’l” and welcome English speaking folks of all nationalities and ethnic backgrounds, including friends who are curious about our faith and Christians who share our faith, vision and mission, to join us in our worship. We also welcome you to join our various fellowship groups to study the Bible and to bond with us and to serve the Lord together with us.
We actively encourage service, particularly to the less fortunate in Hong Kong and beyond, with activities ranging from our support group for cancer patients to many short-term service and mission trips outside of Hong Kong. We also believe in having fun and promote an active, healthy and creative lifestyle among our members and friends through regular activities organized by, among others, our hiking and long-distance running, photography, and Cantonese opera singing clubs. We welcome you to join us in these ministries and activities. Please look out for the announcements.
Kong Fok Church holds firmly to the following seven tenets of faith based on the Bible:
We believe that there is only one God, self-existent and eternal, who is one in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and who is the creator of all things and sovereign of the whole universe.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the incarnate Word, who is true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He laid down his life and shed his blood upon the cross to redeem men from the penalty and bondage of sin. He resurrected from the dead after three days, ascended into heaven and now sits on the right side of God as the Mediator and High Priest, interceding and praying on behalf of the believers. He is the Head of the Church. He will surely come again from heaven and manifest Himself to establish His kingdom and to judge the living and the dead.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the triune God. He descended at Pentecost. His ministry is to glorify Christ, convict sinners of sin and lead them to repentance and regeneration. He also indwells in the hearts of believers, guiding and empowering them to live holy and victorious lives, and uniting them in Christ to become one body, the Church.
We believe that man was created in the image of God. Through rebellion against God, man lost his spiritual life. Ever since the sin of our first parents, men have become sinners, living under the wrath of God. Only through genuine repentance and acceptance of the salvation that Christ has bought with His own Blood, can men be cleansed from sin, regenerated through the Holy Spirit and enter into the kingdom of God.
We believe that the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God. They are the inerrant Word of God, the complete revelation of His will for salvation if men, absolutely trustworthy, actively leading to life and form the highest standard and final authority of Christian faith and practice.
We believe in the resurrection of the dead; those who believe will be resurrected to life and enter into the eternal blessedness of heaven, and those who do not believe will be condemned and thrown into hell to suffer the eternal death of the lake of fire. Both heaven and hell are everlasting.
We believe that the Devil Satan is an evil spirit that works in the hearts of rebellious men. He is the original source of all evil and sin, and he will be condemned to eternal punishment.
