Dear FCBC Family, The latest COVID "sub-variant" is highly transmissible and causing a dramatic rise in illness. Thankfully, most cases are relatively mild (I can testify to that myself) and hospitalizations are low.  As a precaution, we ask that everyone,...

Brothers & Sisters, The situation in Ukraine has intensified, with the UN estimating over two million refugees fleeing the invasion. This is the largest refugee crisis in Europe since World War Two. May the Lord have mercy and show His power against evil and His love in...

FCBC-FV Church family 各位弟兄姊妹, Because of the increasing number of COVID infections, we will temporarily suspend Sunday School and children's classes this Sunday. Teachers, please communicate with your students to see if it is feasible to move classes online (i.e. Zoom)....

Brothers & Sisters 親愛的主內弟兄姐妹, You have probably heard by now about the increasing cases of COVID around the world and here in Orange County. And you may be wondering how the news impacts...

Brothers and Sisters, The COVID pandemic continues to add new entries into our lexicon. The latest one is "delta variant" (sounds like something from math class!). Experts say that this variant is even more contagious than the original 2019 coronavirus, and the...

Brothers and Sisters, Greetings in Christ! Our new COVID guidelines for church gatherings begin this weekend. Here's a quick recap: Masks & Social Distancing: Masks for adults and teens will be optional (indoors and out) for those fully vaccinated. ...

  Brothers and Sisters, Thank God for the continuous good news on COVID-19 since the peak last winter: (1) the decline of cases; (2) the CDC's removal of mask mandates for vaccinated people; and (3) the "official reopening" of the state of California. As a...

June 16, 2021 Brothers and sisters, Here are five reasons why you might love coming to the SBC Annual Meeting in the future (always the second week of June): You delight in word studies Parliamentary rules fascinate you You are tickled by Southern accents You love to...

June 15, 2021 Greetings, brothers and sisters! I pray this finds you well in the Lord. Today was the start of the Annual (Business) Meeting…and it was a long day. Except for a 2-hour lunch break, we were in packed into the convention hall, shoulder to shoulder,...

Greetings from Nashville, Tennessee—home of country music, the Grand Ole Opry, the Predators, Titans, Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) and the 2021 SEND Conference and SBC Annual Meeting. On behalf of your nine messengers here representing FCBC-FV, I...

弟兄姐妹平安!身處在這個世代的基督徒,我們面臨很多的挑戰與壓迫。但是我們應當有什麼樣的心態來面對這些挑戰呢?不要以為只有我們這個時代的基督徒在面臨社會的壓力。就是在舊約中,以色列人也因著即將進入迦南地,面臨原本居住在那裡的外族,他們也會因著他們所信的而被...

今天我們要繼續來看上帝的吩咐。或許我們過去印象中對上帝的吩咐覺得都是偏嚴厲。上帝是嚴肅的,且常常看到上帝擊殺那不聽從的人。但是盼望當我們更深去認識神的吩咐時,我們會看到其實上帝的吩咐背後的動機是愛。公義與愛是不可分割的。今天在22章裡就是如此。讓我們先看...

大部分的法治社會都有針對不同的犯罪動機設立不同的罰則。從殺人罪的角度來說,有所謂的蓄意殺人或是預謀犯案,也有過失殺人,自我防衛殺人之分。這些都是確保一個事件能得到公平公義的判決。這些的法治概念是從哪裡來的呢?原來這就是上帝的屬性,而神按照祂的樣子造人,也...

我們做父母親的為什麼要為孩子制定規矩?我們訂下許多的限制,是因為我們討厭他們嗎?當然不是的。規則,規矩,是因為我們知道如果他們沒有被限制而一意孤行,就很有可能會進入到危險。我們知道有危險,因爲愛的緣故要保護他們。這也是為什麼上帝要頒布十誡。出埃及記20章...

十年前去以色列的時候,去到耶路撒冷城。其中有一個行程,是要去經歷耶穌的苦路14站,就是按照耶穌從會堂受審,最後到各各他的路上,其中有14個有關耶穌的記載,包括在哪裡跌倒讓古利奈人西門幫耶穌背十字架。當時耶穌跌倒手碰到的地方,就是其中一站。在天主教的傳統裡...

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...

Frank Cheng  | 十一月 06, 2020

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,...
