Faith Family Church
Our purpose is to help you know Jesus, discover your purpose, and build a loving family.
The Faith Family Church Story
Faith Family Church was pioneered by Steve & Sharmin Fischer in 2007. From the very beginning the desire was to help people find a new life in Jesus… full of purpose, faith, and surrounded by a loving family. The church started in Steve & Sharmin’s home, before moving to a number of different locations in Kowloon. In 2017 God led the church to move to Tseung Kwan O. Faith Family Church has become a “Home with Love” for families and people of all walks of life.
Our vision is to impact thousands in Hong Kong every week through multiple church locations, schools and an International Ministry Campus.
1. We are guided by Pastors
The Pastoral staff team is led by the Senior Pastor. This team oversees the day-to-day ministry and operations of the church. These staff pastors serve the congregation and are responsible for the development of the spiritual life of the church.

Senior pastors at Faith Family Church
Steven & Sharmin Fischer moved to Hong Kong from the USA in 2003 with their four children (Joab, Naiah, Jasmine & Jael). They have pioneered Faith Family Church, along with an international missions ministry that reaches the USA, China and Hong Kong. Steven & Sharmin love the outdoors, planting gardens, traveling, and enjoying good coffee and tea.

Our Core Values
Learn about the Core Values that we hold dear at Faith Family Church. These values are the DNA of the church.
1. KNOW GOD
More than just practicing religion, God wants to have a personal relationship with you. Sunday services are where we help people know God.
2. FIND FREEDOM
God’s process for you to experience freedom begins with having the right people in your life. He designed us for community, and connecting in Small Groups is how we find life-changing relationships at Faith Family Church.
3. DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE
You are an important part of God’s plan, and your life will never make sense until you discover your purpose. The Growth Track is made up of four classes designed to help you take next steps in your spiritual journey with God.
4. MAKE A DIFFERENCE
This is God’s ultimate plan for your life. When you make a positive impact on other people’s lives with the strengths God has given you, it is then that you can experience the full life He wants for you. Through the Dream Team, we hope to connect every person to an opportunity to live their calling by serving others.
5. GO ON A MISSIONS TRIP
One of the most powerful ways you can make a difference is to go on a missions trip. You can join one of the many China Missions Trips that Faith Family Church leads throughout the year. On each trip we share the love of Jesus to orphans, widows, and those who’ve never heard the name of Jesus even once.
What We Believe
What we believe about God and the Bible creates a solid foundation for Faith Family Church. Our culture, purpose, vision, strategies, and everything else, is built upon these fundamental beliefs.
Faith Family Church is a part of the Association of Related Churches (ARC), a global network dedicated to planting and developing life-giving churches. To learn more about ARC and its church-planting mission, visit arcchurches.com.
WHAT ARE YOUR WEEKEND SERVICES LIKE?
Each weekend at Faith Family Church you’ll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with exciting, contemporary worship music and a practical, relevant message. Children are well-cared for in a loving, quality nursery and fun-filled Faith Family Kids service.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN I VISIT FOR THE FIRST TIME?
If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” for awhile—and that’s fine with us! Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if this is the church for you.
WHAT DO I WEAR TO ATTEND YOUR SERVICES?
You’ll find everything from casual clothes to business suits at our Weekend Services. Come in what is comfortable for you, because Faith Family Church is not about what you look like or what you wear.
WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN?
At Faith Family Church your children are a top priority. Our nurseries are clean, safe, and staffed with loving workers. We offer a dynamic children’s ministry called Faith Family Kids as well as life-changing ministry for youth.
HOW CAN I MEET OTHERS AND GET CONNECTED?
There are many ways to get involved. You can begin by attending our Growth Track. Another great way to connect is through Small Groups. In each of these, you can build friendships, learn more about the life of our church, and have the opportunity to grow in your faith.
HOW CAN I BE DISCIPLED AND GROW?
Our desire is to see you know Jesus, find your purpose, and build a loving family. Our Growth Track offers the tools necessary to make this happen in your life. You can begin the process at any step in our Growth Track.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED IN A SMALL GROUP?
One of the easiest things to do at Faith Family Church is to participate in a Small Group. Groups meet throughout Hong Kong and provide a place for Bible study, fellowship, and support. Wherever you live, there’s a small group near you.
