Watermark started on 10/10/10 as a church plant from Island Evangelical Community Church, with a core group of 43 people led by Tobin and Christina Miller. From the beginning, God has grown the church in spite of the lack of a permanent venue. In 2016, God provided us with Ebenezer School as a regular meeting place and a new Community Centre in Sai Ying Pun. Our history has reinforced our biblical conviction that the church is the people, not the building.
A real family
Our desire is not to be a bunch of ‘sorted’ religious people, but a community of broken sinners who are walking alongside each other and pointing each other to Jesus in all of life. That means church is not a series of meetings, but a multi-generational family you belong to.
All hands on deck
We believe that every believer has gifts and a unique role to play, so that church is not a ‘spectator sport’, but a family where everyone is involved in serving each other. Leaders are here to equip the church to grow in Jesus, develop their gifts, and use their passions to serve Christ, each other, and the city.
Serving the city
We believe that the gospel is the greatest need of the city. Every believer is called as Christ’s ambassador for the gospel in the workplace, family, or relational networks. So we speak the gospel, but also demonstrate it through our community life, serving the poor and marginalised, and loving the hurting and needy.
We believe in the importance of planting new congregations to make followers of Jesus from different areas and demographics. We want to train future leaders to disciple others and be involved in planting out congregations.
