Messages from friends of CERC
Christ-centered, God Glorifying church in every sense.
The faithful preaching of God's Gospel on the pulpit permeates into the life of individual members in the church such that people, young and old, from diverse ethnic background and personalities are unified by the singular reality of Christ rulership in their lives, in the way they love and serve one another.
Thank you Christ Evangelical Reformed Church (CERC) for preaching the Gospel to me, such that I am redeemed from the clutches of the devil and my sinful desires. To live out a life that truly matters. A Christ-exalting life, in loving service towards His saints.

Thanks be to God, for bringing me to Christ, His church, and the local church I have come to know as CERC! During my time here, the faithful preaching of the Word and loving discipleship from brothers and sisters in CERC accompanied me every step of the way. CERC allowed me to see that God and His Son, Jesus Christ and the rightful worship of Him and the glorifying of His name through a people chosen and made for Himself by the Holy Spirit — should be at the center and whole of my life as a Christian.
Not only have I come to know the gospel, I have also grown much from learning what it means to be the church, experienced the richness of God’s Word through biblical theology and careful reading of Scripture, and how the gospel transforms work, relationships, emotions, decision-making, love, death, life — everything. Overall, I have come to believe that CERC's unabashed, open and bold proclamation of the Word — of God as He is revealed in the Bible, of humanity's sin and desperate need for redemption, its rebellion and the grace that ensues from a majestic God in light of the utter depravity of the human heart — has transformed how I think about myself, this world and my purpose within it.
These are just some of the fundamental things I’ve been blessed to witness and learn from God’s Word and His people through my time in CERC, and there are many more lessons that come with every study, sermon, conversation, outing, and interaction that I have had in the course of the life of the church. On the whole, churching in CERC has been greatly encouraging and edifying. I have been privileged to be able to serve Christ alongside everyone in this church, and write this in awareness of the perseverance and work that her members are doing, that with God's grace, will continue to do, and that I and other friends of CERC will continue to support!

Quite rare to see a church deal with the real on a weekly basis - people here are friendly, at the same time not afraid to go deep.
Isabelle Khaw, 09 Jul 2021
This is a great church! Faithful to the Bible, loving Jesus and His Kingdom. The people are friendly, loving and they genuinely care about you. I remember the first time I visited, I was warmly welcomed by the ushers, guiding me through the building and food was even served! We had great discussions over dinner together. CERC strives to build God's people up through faithful expository preaching on Sundays and also to grow God's Kingdom through multiple evangelistic programs. They even take their Sunday School programs seriously during this pandemic! Always teaching the kids that Jesus is the King! I also grew much from their Growth Groups as we study the Bible, fellowship, and pray, to grow in holiness and build each other up in love.
I'm forever grateful to CERC because it's through their bold ministry that I got to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ clearly. They never once watered down the gospel but instead preached the truth about God and life, even if it hurt them. They don't fear man, but God. And I think that's very hard to find today. Now, I am encouraged by them to live a new life for my Lord Jesus Christ and to be a bold witness for Christ and His glory.
If you want to know more about Christianity, if you're looking to get serious, learning and growing in God's Word, or you're finding a faithful, solid church to commit to, I highly recommend you to visit CERC.

Five years ago, the highlight of my week was binge watching hours of Netflix on the weekends. Now I start Mondays eagerly awaiting to feast on God's Word as it's being preached for hours on Sundays. Thank you for your labours of love
Shaun Alex Thomas, 19 Apr 2021
A very faithful church that serves Christ's ministry wholeheartedly. I am thankful to God that I was able to hear the gospel and learn about Christianity through Christ Evangelical Reformed Church 5 years ago. I started by joining their Growth Groups every Thursday to understand what the Bible says about our life and humans. I became a Christian and was baptized 2 years ago. Sunday Sermon is a bit long sometimes, but that's because the preachers are very faithful to God's Word and taking Scripture seriously. Thank God for CERC and the faithful works for God found here. Soli Deo Gloria.
Wei Jie Ang, 19 Apr 2021
When I was young, I didn't know how to read the Old Testament. Thanks to God's Story series in CERC, I learnt to see that in the Old Testament, God is faithful to His own covenantal promises even when His people rebelled against Him. And all in the Old Testament, we see that it all pointed to Jesus, whom God appointed to be His King over His people who is going to restore God's kingdom!
Felicia Ivy, 23 Feb 2021
A Faithful church to the Bible that do expositional preaching, teach their members about sound Biblical theology and have a right understanding about the gospel.
Benjamin Tan, 20 Feb 2021
I thank God for CERC, a church which preaches the Word faithfully. I benefited a lot from the preaching and now I know how to read Bible faithfully and teach others as well. CERC helped me to understand the gospel and clear my doubts on Christianity.
Not to forget the lovely people from my growth group (TGG O) as well! They always encourage me with the Word and speak the truth.
If you are looking for a church and wanting to find out the truth, I will highly recommend you to visit CERC!
Cindy Gan, 28 Dec 2020
2 years ago, I was looking for a Reformed and Bible-centric church to visit. God led me to CERC. I am greatly thankful for their faithful preaching of God's word and evangelistic ministries. Not only was my thirst for understanding God's word was satisfied, CERC also helped me to grow more deeply rooted in God's word and deeper in my appreciation for Jesus Christ's work. Fast forward to 2020 and I find myself still benefitting from CERC's loving ministries. This is a faithful church that is definitely worthy of my support and I reckon yours too. Thank God for CERC.
Bolwin Su, 20 Nov 2020
CERC is where I learned who God is, who I am, and what being a Christian means from his scripture! Thank God for its God-glorifying ministry in preaching a Christ-centered gospel! It is through the weekly preaching of the word, the Bible study sessions, that I learned to read the Bible and take it seriously. Therefore, I learned that the purpose of life is to live and glorify him only!
Fong Kar Wai, 20 Nov 2020
CERC – this is where I find and strive to live out God’s truth and purpose in my life, together with the community of saints who have committed their lives under Christ’s Lordship. Here, Christians persevere together to live out their lives for God and preach the gospel faithfully in love despite how the world hates the light and being anti-intellectual in their search for the truth.
Thank God for His faithfulness and love to CERC that we can still listen to the word of God preached every week through online sermons during this pandemic outbreak!
Do check out our online sermons and

Although the government has extended RMCO period until the end of the year, and there are still SOPs that need to be followed strictly, for example social/ physical distancing, thank God that we are allowed to gather physically as His people, whether it is in our own Growth Groups (GGs) or during Sunday gatherings, albeit in smaller numbers.
GGs have been a lot easier as we may now meet physically compared to the lockdown period where everyone had to meet online because the internet connection can get unstable during GG discussion. I also thank God that we can now listen the sermons via online streaming where the preachers are preaching live.
As I reflect throughout this lockdown period, I am grateful that God has been gracious to us that we are able to gather in small groups for His glory. God has called us to gather physically together as His church, as members of the same body of Christ, sitting under his word, loving and building each other up.
Despite the pandemic, CERC is staying faithful to the word. I've personally been encouraged by the biblical theology series they are doing this year because it teaches us to read the Bible in a cohesive way as a whole. With this, I'm able to understand God's unfolding plan to redeem a people for Himself from the Old to the New Testament. By understanding this, I'm able to understand what Christianity is ultimately about and how Christ is the chosen King ruling His people for God’s glory. I pray for the COVID cases to remain at a low level until a vaccine is developed so that we may gather physically again when things are normal.
I strongly recommend everyone to join their live streaming sermons on every Sunday & GGs on every Thursday as they gather physically in small numbers to learn and grow as part of God’s people for His glory.
Chris Lai, 07 Oct 2020
Really dedicated to making the Bible real and relevant for me.
I was looking for a church that has a bit of deeper Bible teaching and stumbled across CERC. The sermons were a bit longer than usual, but they unpack the Bible thoroughly which helped me see how God's word impacts my life.
Noah Teng, 17 Apr 2020
A genuine community that greatly cares about God and people. A great place to be at.
Woo Kae Sheng, 18 Mar 2020
I can still remember the first time I stepped foot into CERC, it was a massive culture shock on my part, mainly because I was a newbie when it came to understanding theology. As the weeks went by, it became clearer to me what was going on during the sermons delivered each Sunday. I used to think it was all about knowing Scripture and it would suffice. Clearly what was wrong with me was my heart, and all the words being preached were meant to expose my heart as the biggest culprit of all - I am a wretched sinner who has failed to worship God as He so rightfully deserves. This all begins with the word, and through CERC, I finally understood the meaning of life. Week in week out, I learned what it meant to be a Christian, to serve, to persevere, to fear God, and last but not least, love His church!
Samantha Robless, 03 Mar 2020
Thank God for this church that seeks to glorify God and not man. CERC has helped me to understand who the biblical Christ is by teaching God's word faithfully rather than forming my own thoughts about God apart from the Bible. Praise be to God for the loving people God has formed in this church as they strive to keep each other accountable to fight against sin by encouraging each other towards Christ-likeness and maturity in the Word.
Sarah Bungan, 21 Feb 2020
A church that strives to be God-fearing and God-glorifying, preaching Christ-centered sermons, with members who always look out for one another, edifying, rebuking and encouraging one another so that we all won't fall away. I've been here for 4 years and I've grown from a Christian who's "neutral" to a Christian who struggles with sin and always looks to Christ. :)
Ernest Chong, 20 Feb 2020
CERC has been helpful in helping me to think through life and what it means to be a servant under Christ.
The people are so excited about experiencing God and His kingdom through His word!
Many exciting activities such as Wait What?, Geddit, and camps to keep you on your toes all the time. Life is never boring here!
Clovey Lye, 03 Feb 2020
This church is really eager to teach and serve under God. Friendly bunch, they are willing to go extra mile to teach and learn faithfully from the Bible. Instead of being opinion-centric like what I initially thought or heard, they really do their hardest to keep everything faithful to the Bible and love His people.
I was on the verge of not taking Christianity seriously (or you could say, I don't care anymore), and I decided to give them a try. That really changed the way I treat God and His church. Being illuminated, corrected, humbled, rebuked, and encouraged, I would HIGHHHLY recommend you to give them a visit. If you are looking for solid God-loving church, check them out!
Choon Khai Wee, 25 Jan 2020
Thank God for CERC, a church that is built by loving people who care more about God's glory than glory for themselves. CERC has helped me to understand and see Christianity not as merely religion but as a reality — the reality of a Sovereign and Holy God who is angry at sinners and has subjected all humanity to eternal punishment and judgment and how humans can only be saved through Him choosing people for Himself for His glory. Reality of a people of God who has been justified and saved to live under the rule of King Jesus as a new humanity who can now love God and His people. May God's work in CERC continue to build His church to be conformed to the image of the Son until Christ come back again!
Nency Selo, 10 Jan 2020
Attended the Little People event. Filled with fun for the kids and a great time letting the children interact, with skits and songs.

Greetings from Cape Town, South Africa
CERC will always be a fond memory in my heart of a wonderful and memorable time spent in Malaysia whilst visiting with my daughter for a 3-month period. I was attending the mums GG on a Friday evening and the welcome I received from you ladies was just so warm and inviting.
I commend leadership for the wonderful work they are doing in getting the gospel out and teaching believers in the manner in which we have to conduct ourselves as children of God Almighty. I have also been amazed at your generosity in providing meals and lifting – of which I have been a beneficiary (lifting esp.) inspite of financial challenges. This is truly a church who is inspired to carry out gospel living no matter what. Definitely a church I would not hesitate to be a member of, as I could only grow from strength to strength.
May our Lords grace and mercy be so evident toward you all and may He continue to complete what He has begun in you.
Missing you all so much,
Desiree, 30 Aug 2017
Was great to find a church that placed an emphasis on the heritage of the reformers and I could see how your pastor puts such a great emphasis on training up new leaders. The format of church was different from what I'm used to ie having a discussion at the start and having hand outs is not usual so it's cool that you guys are thinking about how best to teach people. Praying that God continues to use this church.
I was visiting from London but hoping my parents will join CERC.
Daniel Tan, 05 Mar 2017
Faithful, loving bunch of people who are committed to serving Christ and His people and making Him known! Very grateful for the leaders and pastor who work hard at teaching the Bible faithfully and discipling Christians into maturity. Definitely recommend this church for people from all stages of life :)
Jay Lyn, 12 Jun 2016
Hi CERC! Looking forward to join you all in the month of July onwards when I'm in KL for my further studies. I'm excited to be around a bunch of passionate people radically living their lives out for the Gospel - wholeheartedly! (Daniel Wong and Yun Jie ministering to me while I'm here in KK). I've also signed up for TTC: Grace & Assurance, so see you all soon!
Winson Chong, 13 Jun 2014
Hey Guys! I'm really excited that I am able to visit you guys again I am going to arrive on the 13th and leave on the 23rd june I have not really planned anything for this time yet, but really what I want to do is hang out with you guys, hear what you've been doing and tell you guys what god has been doing in my life since I saw you last year... Can I maybe stay at one of your places? You can just comment or message me See you soon!
Christoph Hengesbach, 09 Jun 2014
When I step foot on that mere dusty old cemented stairs and floor into an open door, I realised how much I've missed my church & my own family of God.
From the very first person I saw till the very last before I left, Penny Lai, Daniel Lu, Emma Lee Yi Fang, Aunty Lucy Leng, Vanessa Ong, Lillien Siew, Carmen Liew, Xin Yi, David Kuok, Jeremy Leng, Mark Leong, Pastor Robin Gan, Joy Gan, Jerome Leng (Please do forgive me if I ever missed you out)
I feel very blessed to have celebrated with y'all whom He had chosen to die for on the day remembrance of His death. I'm humbled to be in awe of His glorious plan and hope, for only we could truly understand the meaning of it, the meaning of being us in His name and living out each day for Him.
Forgive me for being a lil wayy too fuzzy, I'm just depraved and homesick (no, you haven't heard any of it wrong, home = church, church = home).
So yeah, I'm proud to boast that in the name of Jesus. To Him be the glory. Let us embrace another year of Easter with no less of a burning fire of passion for Him, for He had won the battle that He could have chosen not to start off with. Us being the foolish ones. He the King of all kings. Hail Jesus, hail! He has risen victoriously to give believers, wretch like us new life, forgiveness, and eternal days with Him. Amen.
Choey Ling, 21 Apr 2014
A colleague and I from the U.S. were visiting Malaysia on business and attended the Northwest service on April 6 - what a blessing! We thoroughly enjoyed the worship and doctrinally-rich, reformed teaching. My heart was so at home there! What a great message from Romans to consider - "The Righteousness of God"! Thank you Jerome for the wonderful and clear teaching. Thanks also to everyone for your hospitality and those that took us to lunch - we so enjoyed the fellowship. God's richest blessings to you as you faithfully proclaim the gospel of Christ in the fullness of biblical truth!
Terry Tyler, 17 Apr 2014
I had a great time at camp. Thank you CERC.
Nicky Lim, 16 Oct 2013
Deeply encouraged by today's sermon on Acts 16.6-40. Learnt about how sovereign God is, but many truth which is to keep focus on this God-honouring, Christ-centered, Gospel growth plan. Because of all our freedom in Christ, we use our life, not for the evil but for good. And because we are free, that's why sometimes we are restrain from doing something that stumble others (1 Cor 8), sometimes we need to voice out for the reputation of the Gospel and the church. All of these are deeds of love flow from the faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ and His lordship.
Yvonne Liew, 29 Sep 2013
Hi! My name is Derek from Anderson, Indiana. I hope you won't mind me posting this but I just had to say that after checking out your site that I am VERY impressed! I feel that the Lord is doing a mighty work among you. The zeal for Him and his Word is evident and it gladdens my heart to see this among my brothers and sisters in the Lord. Though we are a world apart know that my prayers are with you. Remember the solas. God bless you and keep you.
Derek Hall, 15 Sep 2013
To be Honest It hurts inside and my soul is crying everyday. This feeling in me, The hunger for God and the church. looking at all the pictures I Think to my self 'How I wish I was there' as all I know is that I Miss You guys so much.
Brandon Choo, 31 Aug 2013
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
Never forget, why you wake up each morning. Never forget, why you get yourself early to work/uni. Never forget, why you dress nicely, smile, and be polite to your colleagues/friends. Never forget, why you are kind to people. Never forget, why you push yourself each day to work harder. Never forget, the God who loves you. Never forget, the God who died for you. Never forget, to bring all glory to Him.
Joseph Tan, 08 Apr 2013
Just wanted to say I really enjoyed the women's growth group last night. I think I haven't been to a Bible Study with so much fun and laughter before! Joy -- I really liked the way you led the group and asked us those probing questions that made us think! God bless CERC!!
Mei Yin, 07 Feb 2013
Greetings from Australia - and happy Foundation Day! We are continuing in prayer for all of you. Keep rejoicing in God's goodness. Keep resting in the grace that is in his Son. Keep growing in your love and knowledge of Him. Keep looking forward to the glory that will be revealed on the last day. And by his Holy Spirit, keep loving and forgiving one another and all of God's people.
Love from Lionel, Bronwyn and the kids, 26 Aug 2012
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
May the peace of our Lord Jesus be with you always. To see from the pictures, the love and dedication you have for others, the hard work and preparation you put in to prepare the food, people from all races and religions coming to learn about God – it is all truly astounding. Truly, there is no Greek or Jew who is excluded from the love of Christ, and the love of Christ is manifest in your hospitality for them. I encourage you, dear brothers and sisters, to keep on going as you have been going:
To the musicians who glorify our God, keep on playing for His glory,
To the cooks who glorify our God, keep on cooking for His glory, To the administrators who glorify our God, keep on administrating for His glory,
To the members who glorify our God, keep on loving as Christ loved us for His glory,
And finally to the shepherd who leads the church, keep on preaching His word faithfully for His glory.
Do not be discouraged, if the numbers of those who come to seek God, dwindle over time. But be encouraged by those who stay, for it is the words of God that is speaking to their hearts, not the words of men.
I am sorry for writing this so late, long after you’ve started the Introducing God series, as I have had struggles myself during these past few weeks. But through it all, I always cling on to my one and only hope, our Lord Jesus, and look towards his Resurrection. I urge you all, dear brothers and sisters, when the times are dark, when the outlook is bleak, when the spirit is low, and when sin is crouching at your door, remember the love of our Lord Jesus, and His pain on the cross, and the promises He made. So in the end, when He comes again in glory in the clouds with fire, He will say, "Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your master".
Joseph Tan, 22 Jun 2012
Keeping you guys in prayer, may the Lord bless the work that you're doing.
Angela W. Kahiga, 07 Jun 2012
Thank you all for your warm welcome yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed the worship--warm laughter, beauty of Christ expressed in song and both spiritual and physical food. I praise God for your wonderful shepherd/pastor and joyful sheep delighting in green pastures. May the Holy Spirit empower and build up CERC through the workings of grace for His glory.
Timothy Hoyoung Lee, 19 Mar 2012
Hello! We have heard from Facebook that there is a new place for your church gathering. We pray that God continues to work through you, proclaiming the gospel faithfully and equipping many many people to live for Christ. Add oil. Take care. We are hearing Robin's sermon on Holy Spirit right now. Alan's first impression was that around the world only Robin will do 'H.Catechism' during sermon time. Amazing!!!
Alan & Jean Lai, 18 Oct 2011
Dear Robin and Joy and all at CERC, CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR THIRD ANNIVERSARY. We wish we could be there to celebrate with you on 28 August. We will be thinking of you and praying for you.
1 Cor. 15:58 - Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Your partners in the gospel,
Barry and Alison Webb, 26 Aug 2011
