Sundays, 10:00 AM
Geneva welcomes the Irvine Taiwanese Presbyterian Church (ITPC) to our campus each Sunday and throughout the week. We are blessed to share our campus with such a warm, friendly and faithful congregation. Here is a message from Pastor Billy Chang:
Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ.
Genesis chapter twelve states, The Lord had said to Abraham, “Leave your country, your people, and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you.” Abraham obeyed, and started his journey to the promised land. Similar to Abraham, the 17th century pilgrims, seeking religious freedom, as well as freedom from religious persecution, sought to immigrate to the Americas and begin new lives. And in the 20th century, we became the new immigrants in this country. As strangers in this new society, we faced many hardships and challenges. However, during this time, we also experienced God’s guidance and blessings.
Abraham was called the Father of Faith because of his devotion. Wherever he traveled, he would build an alter to worship and honor God. Similarly, after the pilgrims became self-sufficient, they would build churches in every city or community to express their thankfulness to the Lord. For the same reasons, in 1994, Irvine Taiwanese Presbyterian Church was established. We use our own language and culture to worship God. Although we don’t have our own church building, we are thankful to Geneva Presbyterian Church and their generosity, allowing us to share their facility.
Irvine Taiwanese Presbyterian Church is a family of love. I hope that all brothers and sisters can become acquainted with each other on a deeper level.
May God Bless You.
Pastor Billy Chang
