My Church (Pilgrim Covenant Church, Singapore)

In Singapore, I am attending Pilgrim Covenant Church (PCC). I have been a member of PCC since April 2000.

On my church's website, there is a short write-up about my church as follows:

Pilgrim Covenant Church is an independent, Protestant and Reformed, or perhaps better: Reforming, Church in Singapore, which is firmly committed to the teachings of the Scriptures which we believe to be the all-sufficient, inerrant and infallible Word of God; and the Westminster Standards, which we believe to contain the most accurate doctrinal summary and exposition of the Word of God today.

Accordingly, we are determined to preach and practise the Word of God accurately, uncompromisingly and with a clear conscience, even though such preaching and practices may be unpopular and offensive in this day of apostasy and individualism (see 2 Timothy 3:1–5; 4:1–4). In other words, we are determined to remain faithful to God, even at the expense of slow numerical growth.

We take this stance not because we wish to be controversial but because we desire sincerely to please our Holy and Covenantal God, and also because we are deeply concerned for the many who may perhaps be perishing in self-delusion (Matthew 7:21–23; Hebrews 3:2–5), having been taught only the gospel of easy-believism rather than the Gospel of Christ which exalts the sovereignty of God and acknowledges the total depravity of man.
