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 fulfil 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 fulfil this unique plan that God has for your life.
May our Heavenly Father’s Unfailing Love pour out His abundance of Grace upon you!

Though God has a plan to raise up a new generation to move the Church forward, we are still to pray for God’s plan to be fulfilled.

Why do we need to pray? Because God can do nothing for humanity unless someone asks Him. Prayer is directed to God and it is simply asking God to do what He has planned to do on the earth. Even when we pray in unknown tongues, we are speaking to God. The Holy Spirit gives us the utterances to speak to God. The Holy Spirit gives us the utterances to pray for God’s plan to be established.

Why is it if we don’t pray or ask God to do something, He cannot do anything for us? It is the same reason we, as believers, have to use our authority given to us in the Name of Jesus. We are to use this authority to bind the devil on earth, then it will be bound in heaven. Why must we bind the devil on earth? Because Jesus has given us the authority over our domains on the earth. My home and children, my business, etc, are all within my domain of authority.

It all began when God created Adam and Eve, and gave them authority and power to take dominion over the heaven and the earth. This was to be handed down to their descendants.

Psalm 115:16 (NKJV)
The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; But the earth He has given to the children of men.

After God recreated the heaven and the earth, He gave the dominion to the descendants of Adam and Eve. From then on God could not simply do what He wants on the earth unless man gives Him the right to do so. Let me use an analogy.

For instance, your natural father builds you a villa. When the construction is completed, he gives the title deed to you. You move in to stay. If the title deed is for 70 years, then the villa belongs to you for 70 years. Your father cannot just take it back or do whatever he wants with the villa because it doesn’t belong to him. It has been handed over to you. When the 70 years is up, he can take it back. You’re only entitled to 70 years of ownership and during the 70 years you can give it to whomever you choose. But you can still invite your father to come and do something in your villa. The same applies to the dominion over this earth.

So when we ask God to do something, we are inviting and giving Him the right to do so. Since God gave the earth to man, it is not in God’s hand to do anything. Jesus was born on the earth as the Son of man. The earth belongs to Jesus and Jesus has authority over the earth. But Jesus is not on the earth now; He is in Heaven seated at the right hand of the Father, but He has given the authority over the earth to those who are in Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:20–24 (NIV)
20 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
21 For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.
22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.
23 But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him.
24 Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power.

According to the Scriptures, a time is coming when Jesus will hand the authority to rule over the spiritual kingdom of the earth to God the Father. As of now, the spiritual authority is in our hands to use. This is the reason why we are to pray, and ask the Father to raise up a new generation of believers to establish His plan here on earth. A new generation who will embrace all the past revivals and whom the Father may use in the new move of the Holy Spirit.

The Israelites refused to walk into the Promised Land and Moses was not allowed to enter in. Although the Promised Land was God’s plan for them, they all remained in the wilderness for forty years and died there, except for Joshua and Caleb. Only these 2 men were full of faith to conquer Canaan.

If God had not raised up a new generation of Israelites, there would be no one to go into the Promised Land to fulfil the plan of God. There would be no Joshua or Caleb to possess Canaan. This new generation could have been no different from the older generation; with no faith and full of doubt. But God raised a new generation for Himself. Led by Joshua and Caleb they possessed the Promised Land. No one could thwart God’s plan, for He alone would fulfil it.

The Old Testament is a type and shadow of the New Testament. The New Testament is the reality that fulfilled the types and shadows. Therefore we should always interpret the Old Testament in the light of the the New Testament.

The story of the Israelites who wandered and died in the wilderness without entering into the Promised Land, though God’s plan was revealed to them, is for us to understand the times and seasons we are in now.

They are the type of the Church today. For the Church to move forward with God or for God to move the Church forward, we need a new generation of believers who would fulfil the plan of God. What God plans, He will fulfil it. This is the grace of God. Knowing God’s plan will always be accomplished, our part then is to pray. It is noteworthy that the new generation of believers should embrace all the past revivals. Let’s take a look at them.

1906 Pentecostal Revival - the revival of Baptism with the Holy Spirit to receive the gift of speaking with unknown tongues

1947 Healing Revival - many people were healed by the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Even preachers who did not have any knowledge about healing, when they laid hands on the sick they were healed. People received their healing easily during this revival.

1966 Charismatic Revival - the revival of the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit

1976 Word of Faith Revival - a revival on the teaching of the Word of Truth

2007 Grace Revolution - a revival that emphasises ‘By Grace through Faith’

The Church of Jesus Christ cannot go backward. To move forward, every local church must embrace all the revivals to date. However many preachers still do not believe that the Grace Revolution is of God. Many churches do not believe in the Baptism with the Holy Spirit to receive the gift of speaking in unknown tongues. In fact they speak against it. They are actually “blaspheming the Holy Spirit,” so to speak.

What is the danger of not embracing each and every move of the Holy Spirit? Well, you will not be able to fully step into the next move. The Word of Faith revival is the foundation for the Grace Revolution. Many believers who have no grounding in the Word of Faith teaching, do not know how to use their faith when they are walking in God’s grace.

God will always raise up a new generation to move His church forward, those who would continue to establish His plan here on earth. We, as the Body of Christ are to pray for the new generation of believers whom God can use for the next move of the Holy Spirit.
