Gratitude Ladies Fellowship
First and foremost our desire is to be humble servants to God. Committed to following his ways in our daily lives. As we do so we wish to focus on building God-centred relationships, transforming lives through the word of God, the leading of the Holy Spirit and power of prayer.
The emphasis on relationship building starts with our personal relationship with God and encouraging each of our sisters in Christ to having a desire to know God more and seeking him with all our hearts through his word and prayer..
As we grow in our intimacy with God, we pray that it will flow over in building trusted relationships with our sisters in Christ and edifying one another in the ways of the Lord, and being their support network in times of needs.
We pray that as we seek God and build our relationship with him and our sisters in Christ, the Holy Spirit will lead us out to our wider communities ( Church, local, regional and beyond) to be doers of the word; in acts of service, using our God given gifts and thereby fulfilling the purpose of God over our lives.
Romans 12:2 sums up what we desire in our lives and all of the members of our fellowship.
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” (Romans 12:2 )
True Faith Filipino Fellowship
In 2008, Martin and Frances started attending the main Calvary Church in Tsim Sha Tsui. After visiting several Christian churches in Hong Kong searching for a place that will suit their spiritual needs, a friend introduced them to Calvary. They moved to Calvary Tung Chung a year later which is much closer to their home in south Lantau where they used to live. This couple believes that spiritual nourishment or sustainment is very important to cope up with the daily challenges and struggles in life.
Their desire is to pursue and build a Christ-centered family. To be in-tuned to God because only Him is able to give them the wisdom they need to pursue this in the family, as it was described in Colossians 3:18-21: “Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them. Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.” It gives the essential ingredient for a Christ-centered family.
As leaders of True Faith Filipino Fellowship, the goal is to spread the gospel and strengthen the relationship with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through bible studies, evangelism and fellowship with other Christians. Although, the aim is to evangelise to the Filipino community, our ministry is also open to other nationalities. As it is said in Psalm 105:1 “Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples!
