Welcome to Faith Bible Church Singapore (FBCS)

At our church, we hope that through His Word and by His Spirit, and through the fellowship of the saints you will get to know and experience the Heavenly Father’s unfailing love for you.

John 1:17 (AMP)
17 For while the Law was given through Moses, grace (unearned, undeserved favor and spiritual blessing) and truth came through Jesus Christ.

By our Father’s Grace, we endeavour to teach His Word of Truth that Faith be imparted to your life. Then through Faith you may access His Grace all the time for yourself and for others, thus helping you to develop spiritually and helping your faith grow exceedingly.

The Heavenly Father has given FBCS this mandate, that is, “Prayer is Our Mission.” Through prayer we hope that you will fulfill the destiny that our Father God’s unfailing love has planned for you.

I pray that FBCS will be a blessing to you. Let us help you fulfill this unique plan that God has for your life.
May our Heavenly Father’s Unfailing Love pour out His abundance of Grace upon you!

God sees the past and He sees the future now. He sees the end from the beginning. Then He plans according to what He sees. When He plans, it happens and what He wants to do, He will do it. Isaiah 46:10–11 (NCV)10 From the beginning I told you what would happen in the end. A long time ago I told you things that have not yet happened. When I plan something, it happens. What I want to do, I will do.11 I am calling a man from the east to carry out my plan; he will come like a hawk from a country far away. I will make what I have said come true; I will do what I have planned.In the Hebrew language there is only the past and present tense. There is no future tense. God sees the end from the beginning, therefore He speaks in the present tense. God sees the future now.WHILE WE WERE SINNERS, GOD SAID Ephesians 2:4–6 (NIV)4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus …While you were dead in trespasses refers to the time before you were born again, when you were still a sinner. God said He made you alive together with Christ. While you were spiritually dead (separated from God), He said you have been saved. God also said He has raised you up with Christ and seated you with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. In other words, God has already saved you when Jesus died and rose again. God is seeing you seated in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. God calls those things that do not exist on earth as though they do. DAVID SPOKE IN THE PAST AND PRESENT TENSE When David, the shepherd went to confront Goliath, David called those things that did not exist as though they did. Goliath is a type of Satan. When the devil comes against you in any form or fashion, speak against him like David did. I find that very often believers do not recognise it is the devil who comes against them. Especially if you see a recurring pattern with regards to a certain issue, and it is causing you problems, more likely than not it is the devil arraying against you.1 Samuel 17:34–37 (Young’s Literal Translation)34 And David saith unto Saul, ‘A shepherd hath thy servant been to his father among the sheep, and the lion hath come—and the bear—and hath taken away a sheep out of the drove, 35 and I have gone out after him, and smitten him, and delivered out of his mouth, and he riseth against me, and I have taken hold on his beard, and smitten him, and put him to death. 36 Both the lion and the bear hath thy servant smitten, and this uncircumcised Philistine hath been as one of them, for he hath reproached the ranks of the living God.’ 37 And David saith, ‘Jehovah, who delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, He doth deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.’ And Saul saith unto David, ‘Go, and Jehovah is with thee.’In this passage of Scriptures, David told King Saul of his experiences with the lion and the bear before he went down to the valley to confront Goliath; the battle had not begun yet. David was taught in faith and He understood the nature of God. David also called those things that did not exist as though they did.In verse 36 David said, “Both the lion and the bear hath thy servant smitten, and this uncircumcised Philistine hath been as one of them.” David spoke in the past tense even before he defeated Goliath. David said this Goliath would become like the lion and the bear.And then David spoke in the present tense in verse 37, “And David saith, ‘Jehovah, who delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, He doth deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” David said God would deliver him from Goliath. David did not say God was going to deliver but that He would deliver.This is how you defeat the devil who tries to oppress your mind with fear, or thoughts of sickness, and failure, and suicidal tendencies. This is how you overcome trials and testings. This is how you overcome prejudice, or discrimination in the work place. This is how you live a healthy life till a ripe old age. This is how you overcome fear of retrenchment. Declare it was the Heavenly Father who gave you this job in the first place, the One who put you in this company and position, therefore no one can take it away from you.Faith speaks as the Almighty God is doing something for you now and indeed He is!Rev.

WHILE WE WERE SINNERS, GOD SAID 

Ephesians 2:4–6 (NIV)
4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 
5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 
6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus …

While you were dead in trespasses refers to the time before you were born again, when you were still a sinner. God said He made you alive together with Christ. While you were spiritually dead (separated from God), He said you have been saved. God also said He has raised you up with Christ and seated you with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. In other words, God has already saved you when Jesus died and rose again. God is seeing you seated in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

I find that very often believers do not recognise it is the devil who comes against them. Especially if you see a recurring pattern with regards to a certain issue, and it is causing you problems, more likely than not it is the devil arraying against you.

1 Samuel 17:34–37 (Young’s Literal Translation)
34 And David saith unto Saul, ‘A shepherd hath thy servant been to his father among the sheep, and the lion hath come—and the bear—and hath taken away a sheep out of the drove, 
35 and I have gone out after him, and smitten him, and delivered out of his mouth, and he riseth against me, and I have taken hold on his beard, and smitten him, and put him to death. 
36 Both the lion and the bear hath thy servant smitten, and this uncircumcised Philistine hath been as one of them, for he hath reproached the ranks of the living God.’ 
37 And David saith, ‘Jehovah, who delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, He doth deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.’ And Saul saith unto David, ‘Go, and Jehovah is with thee.’

In this passage of Scriptures, David told King Saul of his experiences with the lion and the bear before he went down to the valley to confront Goliath; the battle had not begun yet. David was taught in faith and He understood the nature of God. David also called those things that did not exist as though they did.

In verse 36 David said, “Both the lion and the bear hath thy servant smitten, and this uncircumcised Philistine hath been as one of them.” David spoke in the past tense even before he defeated Goliath. David said this Goliath would become like the lion and the bear.

And then David spoke in the present tense in verse 37, “And David saith, ‘Jehovah, who delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, He doth deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” David said God would deliver him from Goliath. David did not say God was going to deliver but that He would deliver.

This is how you defeat the devil who tries to oppress your mind with fear, or thoughts of sickness, and failure, and suicidal tendencies. This is how you overcome trials and testings. This is how you overcome prejudice, or discrimination in the work place. This is how you live a healthy life till a ripe old age. This is how you overcome fear of retrenchment.

Faith speaks as the Almighty God is doing something for you now and indeed He is!

Faith comes by hearing the spoken Word of Christ. Jesus Christ speaks what He sees. Hence faith is hearing what Jesus is seeing that has not come into existence on earth, in the natural yet. When we hear from the Father, we are hearing what He is seeing. We must then believe the things He calls forth that do not exist. What must we do as we believe?WE BELIEVE THEREFORE WE MUST SPEAK WHAT WE BELIEVE 2 Corinthians 4:13 (NET)But since we have the same spirit of faith as that shown in what has been written, “I believed; therefore I spoke,” we also believe, therefore we also speak.Paul said he believed therefore he spoke. When we believe the things that the Heavenly Father shows us, we must speak what we believe. The important principle of faith is that when faith comes by hearing, you must believe what you heard, followed by speaking what you believe. Having faith in our spirit must be released through actions. Believing and speaking are two actions to release our faith. These words “believe” and “speak” are both present, active, verbs (definition by Heiser, M. S., & Setterholm, V. M. (2013; 2013). Glossary of Morpho-Syntactic Database Terminology. Lexham Press.)1. verb — A word that describes an action, state of being, or the production of a result.2. present — The verb tense where the writer portrays an action in process or a state of being with no assessment of the action’s completion.3. active — The grammatical voice that signifies that the subject is performing the verbal action or is in the state described by the verb.When faith comes into our spirit, we are to believe and speak what we heard from the Father. And we are to keep it active by continuously believing and speaking until we see the manifestation of what the Heavenly Father sees.FAITH IS IN OUR SPIRIT, BELIEVE IS IN OUR SOUL When God speaks, He speaks into our spirit. Therefore faith is only found in our spirit. We have faith because our spirit heard from the Heavenly Father by the Holy Spirit. Believe is a verb; an action word. Since it is an action word, it requires the will to make a decision. To believe, we have to enact our will to make a decision to believe. Our spirit will influence the will to make a decision to believe. Hence believing is enacted in our soul. Therefore faith is in our spirit and the act of believing is in our soul.Do not allow your unrenewed or doubting mind to influence your will into making a decision of not believing. If you allow that to happen, you will slip into doubt and unbelief. Then you will render your faith ineffective and dormant in your spirit. Subsequently you will speak doubt and unbelief which binds you. Alas, this is how people remain bound as they are not able to come out of their crisis and free themselves from bondage.Rev.

When faith comes into our spirit, we are to believe and speak what we heard from the Father. And we are to keep it active by continuously believing and speaking until we see the manifestation of what the Heavenly Father sees.

FAITH IS IN OUR SPIRIT, BELIEVE IS IN OUR SOUL 

When God speaks, He speaks into our spirit. Therefore faith is only found in our spirit. We have faith because our spirit heard from the Heavenly Father by the Holy Spirit.
