CFFC is a Christian-faith based, non-denominational, non-profit organisation serving Chinese communities worldwide.

Vision 

To build up Christian characters of the couples we serve so that they can live out a Christ-like life.

Mission 

To enrich the marriage relationship of couples through their participation in the enrichment retreat and the follow-up fellowship in order to bring about a revival of their spiritual life leading to a holistic Christian character development.

Core value 

Want nothing for oneself, but give everything to the Lord. Live out a life to impact life in ministry.

Philosophy and Spirit

  • Life with life fellowship, serving together with gifts
  • Life more important than gifts, relationship more important than ministry (Ephesians 2:10; Isaiah 64:8)
  • Life before ministry, characters more important than exteriors.
  • Submission before mission (1 Samuel 15:22)
  • Team more important than individual. Esteem others better than oneself. (Philippians 2:3-4)
  • The Lord must be greater. I must become less. (John 3:30)

Goals 

  • Seek to work with churches to strengthen and renew relationships in Christian families through ministries such as preventative initiatives, training, research and counselling.
  • Prevent the breakdown of marriage and family.
  • Bring about holistic renewal of characters and commitment of whole family to the Lord. To spread the gospel through personal and family testimonies in order to accomplish the Great Commission entrusted to us by Jesus.
