A Brief History of VCBC
In August 1968, a group of 15 Baptist Christians from Hong Kong joined together to form the “Vancouver Chinese Baptist Fellowship," inviting Rev. Jonathan Cheung to pastor the fellowship. Regular Sunday worship services were started a month later under the new name “Vancouver Chinese Baptist Church.”
In July 1969, our church was constituted as the first Chinese Baptist Church in Vancouver. By God’s grace, our number continued to increase and we needed a bigger church building. In January 1979, we purchased and moved into the present building.
In 2009, we celebrated our 40 years together with events that focused on the anniversary theme: Uniting in Love, Journeying in Hope. A church-wide 40-day devotional journey was embarked upon using a bilingual journal put together by staff.
In 2019, we celebrated our 50th anniversary. Our 50th anniversary theme Blessed to Bless remind us of our calling to continue extending God's blessings to the generations that come after us.
