At BICF ZGC we are gathering, growing, and going…
The BICF ZGC Elders want to welcome you to this site. You can get to know us more by clicking on the “ABOUT BICF ZGC” to see our mission, vision, and values. The key thing about our congregation which is focused on reaching international students and workers on the west side of Beijing is that we are all about Gathering, Growing, and Going.
Gathering – People from many nations gather together to worship and serve the Lord Jesus Christ throughout BICF. We preview the day those from ‘every tongue, tribe, people, and nation’ will gather before Him. He is the Chief Gatherer and He enlists us to bring people into the joy of His family.
On Sundays, BICF ZGC gathers online using Zoom. During the week we gather in dorm rooms, apartments, restaurants, parks – our Father owns this city! As we each share some of our time, talents, and treasures we see Him do great things for the glory of His name.
Growing – Jesus invites us into a life-transforming journey with Him – He’s given His Word, Spirit, and family. He is making us true ‘living letters’ for our lost world. The message of the Cross challenges this world. But be encouraged! A new world has been born in Christ’s resurrection.
Going – Jesus commands us to “make disciples” – in every country, into every corner of this city. He holds “all authority in heaven and earth.” In ZGC we learn more about going with Him day by day so that we might serve Him around the world year after year.
Focus Passage for 2021 – Ephesians 2:19-22 (NIV)
19 Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. 21 In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. 22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
