Statement Of Faith:

Chinese Church in Christ Mountain View/Redeemer Bible Fellowship is seeking a qualified Christian to serve as a full-time assistant minister, overseeing student ministries.

Church Description
Chinese Church in Christ ( is an evangelical non-denominational Chinese church. Redeemer Bible Fellowship ( is the name of its English ministry.
In 1982, a group of Christians sought to reach out to local Chinese in Palo Alto and its neighboring cities. Their efforts led to the establishment of Chinese Church in Christ along with an accompanying English service.
In 2011, the church decided to adopt Redeemer Bible Fellowship as the name of its English ministry in order to more effectively carry out the Great Commission and reach out to its surrounding communities.
Today, with 250 congregants at Chinese Church in Christ, and 200 at Redeemer Bible Fellowship, both congregations meet in the same building and support one another, with the same desire to worship God, equip the saints, and reach people in their respective communities and beyond with the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
