EXTRAVAGANT WORSHIP

by Sian Huey 

One evening at Bethany, while Jesus was dining at His friend’s house, something extraordinary happened. Jesus’ disciples, His close friends and the religious leaders of the town were gathered in one place when a woman came in with a jar of expensive perfume, broke the jar and poured the perfume on Jesus’ head (Mark 14:3). […]

BUILDING RELATIONSHIP IN GOD’S FAMILY

by Sam Tan

The key element of a godly relationship is love. As brothers and sisters in Christ, I can’t see how we could have a relationship but do not have love. What would a relationship without love look like? Would it be superficial or just based on ‘what I can get from you’?

Jesus loves us […]

DESIRING GOD

by Anna Koh

Have you ever been thirsty to the point of desperation? What was on your mind then? “Water! If only I can have some water! Where can I find water?” The desire for water comes from within, no one needs to force it on you.

What about our desire for God? We may have heard sermons […]

Happy New Year and Happy 33rd Anniversary, dear CLGC family!

God is faithful, He has blessed us with the land and the building, and a rich spiritual heritage. The physical and spiritual heritage is a surety of what is to come: things yet unseen through the natural eyes but purpose and promises of God that […]

WHAT KIND OF FELLOWSHIP?

by Sian Huey

A reflection on 1 John 1

We use the word ‘fellowship’ a lot in Christian circles. When we invite a friend to hangout for mamak after church, we might say “come lah, join us for some fellowship”, or when we gather in a homogeneous group we call it ‘Life Fellowship’ or ‘Ladies Fellowship’. What we’re really […]

THE LIBERATING TRUTH OF GIVING

by Choe Swee See

“…while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom 5.8);
“Freely you have received, freely give” (Matt 10.8);
“For by grace you have been saved through faith…” (Eph 2.4-9).

I first caught the giving heart of Father God in the way my earthly father gave. People usually receive presents for their birthdays. Not my […]

ADVENTURES ON THE FIELD

recently:

Crossing fear

BUILD IT WITH CARE

by Sam Tan

As part of the church building project, I had the opportunity to be involved in the planning and execution of certain areas. One of my responsibilities was to ensure that we had telecommunications running through the building- especially the Internet! As I got more involved, I began to understand what it means to “build rightly”.

My […]

CHRISTIAN VALUES IN THE MARKETPLACE

by Caryna Koh

“If we don’t identify and articulate Christian values, we will likely osmotically adopt the values of others.”

So, what are the Christian values we consider important, as we minister in the marketplace?

Spirituality

Secular humanism, which embraces human reasoning and rejects God, is fundamentally materialistic. It substitutes “man” in place of “God”. “Me” as the center of […]

GET HUNGRY FOR THE WORD

by Simon Kang

Imagine the perfect nasi lemak. Aside from the minor variations, most of us would describe the perfect nasi lemak as having these components: aromatic coconut milk rice, spicy sweet and savoury sambal, a perfectly cooked hard-boiled egg, crunchy salty ikan bilis, roasted peanuts, and fresh thinly sliced cucumber.

Now imagine if you only ever got to eat […]
