Watermark Community Church began as a church plant from Island ECC, led by Tobin and Christina Miller and a core group of 43 people. Our first service was held on October 10, 2010 at Cyberport. Over the years, God continued to grow the church despite the lack of a permanent venue. In 2016, God led us to Ebenezer School in Pok Fu Lam, which serves as our regular meeting place today, and He also provided us with a new community centre in Sai Ying Pun. Throughout our history, God has continually reinforced our biblical conviction that the church is not a building, but is about the people.
Our mission and vision
Our mission is “to make mature disciples of Jesus who impact the city of Hong Kong for the glory of God.” Our vision is “to see the growth of gospel communities of mature disciples of Jesus, raised up and released, to advance God’s kingdom in Hong Kong and beyond.” What does this mean?
“make mature disciples of Jesus”: As broken sinners who follow Jesus (disciples), we seek to move the sceptic and the believer on their journey towards Christ (make disciples). As we mature, every aspect of our lives is increasingly shaped by Jesus.
“gospel communities”: We believe that real community is the primary ‘greenhouse’ for making disciples. Our prayer is that God will enable us to multiply healthy communities, centred on the gospel, around Hong Kong.
“raised up and released”: Every disciple is also called to be a disciple-maker. Therefore, we want to equip every believer to use their gifts, time and resources to serve and invest in helping others move towards Christ. We want to live all of life with this ‘gospel intentionality’ – loving our neighbours, doing justice and speaking the gospel. We believe this will impact the culture of Hong Kong.
