Faith Community Baptist Church (FCBC) was founded in 1986 by Senior Pastor Apostle Lawrence Khong. Together with his wife, Senior Pastor Nina, and a dedicated team of pastors, Apostle Lawrence has nurtured FCBC to grow into a 10,000-strong church with a vision to serve the nations by effecting community transformation in Singapore and gateway cities in Asia through cutting-edge ministries.
FCBC reaches out to the multitudes with celebration services for its English, Mandarin, Youth, Children and Hokkien-speaking congregants. Its celebration centre at TOUCHCENTRE (TC) at 3 Marine Parade Central provides a vibrant dynamic environment for worshippers to have a powerful and personal encounter with God.
In 1986, FCBC volunteers birthed the work of TOUCH Community Services among latchkey kids. In 1992, TOUCH registered as a not-for-profit charitable organisation and is an Institution of a Public Character (IPC). It aims to establish and provide the needy and disadvantaged with an integrated network of community-based services that strengthen families and transform communities.
FCBC has also pioneered various specialised ministries to care for specific groups of individuals with special needs. The Prison Ministry, Special People Ministry, Deaf Ministry and Mint (Minds in Christ which serves the intellectually challenged) are some of the ministries that FCBC actively engages in.
Another cutting edge ministry comes in the form of Gateway Entertainment (GE) – a theatre and entertainment production business that forms the creative arm of FCBC. Since its inception in 2000, GE has staged cutting-edge world-class performances that uniquely combine magic, music, drama and dance to establish God’s Kingdom in the marketplace. It is fronted by Apostle Lawrence and his daughter, Priscilla, who have established themselves as Singapore’s only father and daughter illusionist team.
At a national level, FCBC is part of the LoveSingapore movement which is co-driven by Apostle Lawrence and various local church leaders. LoveSingapore is committed to build an alliance of churches that are united to bless Singapore and other nations.
Since 2002 till to date, FCBC is a G12 (Government of 12) cell church - part of the G12 movement founded by Pastor Cesar Castellanos from Bogota, Colombia. Aligned and committed to G12’s Vision to 'go and make disciples of all nations,’ FCBC continues to extend the Kingdom of God to the multitudes by preaching and teaching the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit and training committed followers of Christ.
