Love God • Love People • Make Disciples

CORE BELIEFS

BIBLE

We believe the Scriptures both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for Christian faith and life.

GOD

We believe in ONE God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

JESUS

We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.

HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, during this age to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.

SIN

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and is therefore lost and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

SALVATION

We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.

SACRAMENT

We believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during this age. They are, however, not to be regarded as a means of salvation.

ESCHATOLOGY

We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons, who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the Body of Christ, of which He is the Head.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.

ECCLESIOLOGY

We believe that only those who are thus members of the true Church shall be eligible for membership in the local church.

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church, and every local church has the right, under Christ, to decide and govern its own affairs.

Our Mission

To make disciples of all nations

What does loving God mean?

In ministry, PJEFC has adopted the stance of making disciples as a statement of loving God, and it is impossible to make disciples unless we too, love people.

 

If we were to use an analogy to describe the church and her ministry, it would be this: the trellis and the vine. The trellis is the structure upon which makes it possible for the vine to grow and be fruitful.

As Jesus has called us to bear fruit in abundance, we appreciate all of the trellis work (organisational structure, available facilities, abundance of resources) that is done behind the scenes that keep the church operating smoothly. However, a trellis does not bear fruit — only a vine can.

Hence, we are all disciples. And as disciples, we are to leverage on our ‘trellis’ to maximise the ‘vine work’. It will get messy, it will be painful, but it is moving in the right direction as commanded by Jesus.

WHY

Making disciples should be our main focus, primary drive and ingrained into our lives as Jesus followers. It is an act that brings glory to God as others hear about Jesus and receive salvation from Him.

WHAT

A disciple is a learner of Christ, a Jesus follower. Everyone who believes in Jesus is a disciple. This means each of us are in a capacity to help others who are less mature in their Christian journey to take a step into maturity. As we are all in different stations in life, there is always an opportunity for us to disciple someone else.

HOW

It might sound like a monumental task, but it actually isn’t. In fact, making disciples might be the most natural thing that you can do as a disciple yourself! All that you need to do is to help someone take one step to the right, moving them from the domain of darkness into the kingdom of the Son through the 4 “P”s.

What are the 4 P's?

MEET OUR AMAZING

PASTORS

Rev. Alexa Ho

Thank you for checking me out! I’m Alexa and I’m a S.H.E. (Super High Extrovert). I love people 😉

 

I lead the Family Life, College and University, and Community Transformation segments of the church, while overseeing all other existing ministries. I am also a legit Assistant Registrar of Marriages so I can register Christian marriages/unions…YAYY!!! Yes, it does sound like a lot on my plate, but don’t worry, I don’t do it alone. The wonderful team of people serving alongside me has me ‘covered’.

 

My passion is to see people be transformed by the love of Jesus, to see the church be an inviting safe space for the community to explore what it means to be human in the modern world, and to share how best to follow Jesus in our culture. If that sounds like you, please reach out to me! I’ll buy you good coffee, and you can spill the beans and share what God has laid upon your heart.

 

I’m happily married to Gary, and together, we have a son, Micah.

Pastor Ruth Ng

Hey there! I’m Ruth and I have been serving as PJEFC’s XP since January 2020. My role is to oversee Sunday Services, HR and Operational matters so I especially am blessed to work closely with the Ops team and our worship ministry.

 

I’ve been with PJEFC since Sunday School which is pretty cool! Prior to this role, I served onboard the MV Logos Hope for 7 years and got to live out God’s calling in different leadership roles in the latter 5 years. My heart is for world missions, developing young leaders, mentoring and those struggling with mental health.

Rev. Dicky Wong

Hello, although I am a part-time pastor of the church, I have a full-time heart for the elderly in the Seniors. I also lead the Care Ministry here at PJEFC and I thank God for His gift to take care of others. I strive to continue learning to be compassionate and to be reflective of Christ’s love and His ways. May Jesus increase, and I decrease. To me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

Pastor James Yong

I am a local man born in Kuala Lumpur, residing in Petaling Jaya. A husband with one wife, one son, one daughter-in-law and one grandson. I am a father and a grandfather to a happy and contented family where the Lord Jesus is the center of our household. My Christian walk began when I was just 16 years old.

 

Currently, I oversee Prayer and Welfare after pastoring the Chinese congregation for over ten years. I am a graduate from Tung Ling Seminary Malaysia. It is my honor and privilege to connect and serve you, particularly with regard to prayer and welfare. God bless.

Lee Lai Sheong

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty well preserved body, but rather to skid broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming “WOW! WHAT A RIDE!” (Hunter S Thomson)

 

This statement is awesome and inspiring! What a way to exit planet earth! This is how I visualize ‘finishing well’. This is what I aspire for seniors as the coordinator of JOY, a ministry for ‘Just Older Youth’ ☺

 

Life in the senior years can be purposeful, meaningful and fun too! Together, we explore ways to stay fit, physically, mentally, spiritually and socially. I am passionate about seniors embracing this mind-set that they can continue to be viable and valuable members of their families, church & community. Celebrate life! Yayy!

Pastor Jeremy Lim

Hi! I’m Jeremy, the pastor for Mission and 2545, PJEFC’s Young Adult Ministry. In the coming months I will also be more involved in our Chinese-speaking congregation. I am passionate about introducing others to Christ and helping them in becoming fully devoted followers of Christ. It has been an awesome privilege to lead a wonderful team in establishing PJEFC’s ministry with the migrants and refugees. Our vision is to see vibrant communities of Christ-followers among the various people groups across Klang Valley.

 

Hailing from Penang, I love a good bowl of laksa and chendol! I am married to my beloved, Ai Teng, and we both enjoy hunting for cheap and tasty food. Join us?

Pastor Tan Yu Yong

Hello! My name is Yu Yong and I oversee the Christian Education & Development ministry in PJEFC and am also the assistant pastor of Cell Groups.

 

One of my hobbies is working out in the gym. In my many years I have found that working out and discipleship are quite similar. To excel it requires knowledge (so that we know what we are doing), wisdom (because of time management/seasons in life), perseverance, and more importantly, we must find this as a joy and not a chore.

 

Flowing from that understanding, my passion is to help others realize that discipleship is a joy! It is my prayer that through the Christian education classes, and as cell-groups continue to meet, Christians will find joy in discipleship. Now, obviously like working out, there are some seasons where we will be demotivated, where we will feel tired and weary. However, what can help the person push past this season is if he or she belongs to a community that is supportive and edifying. Indeed, Christ reminded us that the journey of faith is not one that is easy. But we are thankful that we are not alone! His Spirit and the community that He has prepared will be with us every step of the way.

Pastor Melissa Chan

Hello! I’m Melissa, scientist turned pastor with a tendency to hamster-hoard different flours to play with. Yeah, I like to experiment with recipes and find myself more focused when I am baking. I also love exploring opportunities to create meaning and meaningful communities with technology given to us.

 

I am very proudly Malaysian (woohoo!) although not a great fan of the PJ-life. However, I believe that there are many like me who long for authentic friendships and spiritual companionship in this hectic lifestyle. So, I stay. And try to offer that.

 

My focus responsibilities, Cell Groups and Online Church Engagement, are both fascinating and challenging. On the odd occasion, I teach at the seminary and at a local college. I would love to hear what you think of Christian community or just life in general. Let’s get in touch soon!
