Godfrey Hom

Senior Pastor

Pastor Godfrey was born in Oakland to first-generation immigrants from Guangzhou, China, and was born-again at Chinese Independent Baptist Church at age 7. By God's grace, and through the many (desperate!) prayers of faithful family and mentors, he grew in faith during those early formative years.

In 1990, after finishing a B.A. in geography at Berkeley, he moved to UCLA, graduated with an M.Ed., and went on to teach secondary mathematics. In 1997, together with his bride, Stacey, he embarked on a new path towards pastoral ministry by enrolling at Talbot School of Theology, earning an M.Div. in 2000. Pastor Godfrey served at churches in Palos Verdes and Irvine before joining the FCBC-FV family in 2012.

Besides Jesus, Godfrey's joys in life are Stacey and their children Sarah, Shane, and Selah. His interests include (in alphabetical order) athletics, bargain-shopping, Bay Area sports, cars, food, games, history, home/kitchen gadgets, music and people.

上帝可以用各樣的方式將祂的旨意與智慧讓我們知道。除了從讀經禱告裡的領受,或是主日講台上的信息,也可以是小組查經裡。上帝也會用各樣的屬靈弟兄姐妹,或是書籍來跟我們說話。但是上帝的說話方式不是侷限在這些而已。今天我們看到上帝透過一個意想不到的人來幫助摩西。出...

當我們看到出埃及記17章的時候,我們往往會注意到兩個故事。一個是在瑪撒,以色列人再次的為了沒有水喝而爭鬧。第二個故事就是與亞瑪力人的爭戰,特別是記載的如何當摩西的手舉起,以色列人就得勝,放下的時候,以色列人就敗退。很多的反省,講道,都會提到這一個故事。當...

我們今天能夠吃,能夠喝,有工作,有各樣的退休金,還有各樣的救助金,是誰的功勞?或許這個世界會告訴我們,是因為我們努力工作辛勞得著的。但是聖經怎麼教導我們的?以色列人在曠野40年,沒有一天餓肚子,沒有一天沒有食物吃,為什麼?因為上帝的恩典。出埃及16章這樣...

為什麼我們需要常常認罪悔改?因為人是健忘的。人很容易被眼前的事物影響,導 致犯罪。夏娃之所以會吃禁果,有很大部分的原因是因為看到這樹上的果子悅人眼目。以 掃失去長子的名份,也是只在乎當下肚子的飽足而失去永恆的福份。以色列人過了紅海,...

Philippians 3:12–14

Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
