Our Sunday worship program is conducted in both Mandarin Chinese and English. Born overseas or "made in USA"? Enjoy praise songs and hymns in both languages. On-screen music lyrics are in English, Chinese and Pinyin--ideal for anyone learning Mandarin or just wants to follow along. Sermons are in both languages (with live translations).
Friendship Agape believes everyone should worship together--at the same time. With our bilingual Mandarin Chinese and English format, it's ideal for multi-generational, multi-cultural families and friends. After the praise songs, children and youth are dismissed to their Sunday school classes.
Our vision is to be a Chinese-American church in Silicon Valley who are obedient people of God, faithful disciples of Jesus Christ, a caring body of Christ and genuine friends to all.
Our weekly seeker classes (Mandarin Chinese or English) provides a comfortable environment for discovering God and building a relationship with His son Jesus. Commissioned by Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20), we strive to help individuals become disciples who publicly proclaim their faith (baptism) and follow God's teachings through Scriptures.
With a name like "Friendship Agape," it's no surprise that all visitors and guests are treated like new friends (not strangers). Since the Christian church is not a building but a congregation of believers, we truly believe every individual is important.
Not too big, not too small. Friendship Agape has the same denomination oversight found in much larger churches, yet our ministry is uniquely fresh and dynamic. We're small enough so everyone has an opportunity to discover and develop their spiritual gifts. (We're also not too big; you'll never worry about finding a parking space.)
After a spiritually uplifting sermon, be sure to stay for our lunch fellowship. It's a great way to enjoy food prepared by our members--or nearby restaurants. If you're visiting with us for the first time, there is no charge (yes, it's a "free lunch").
