OUR STORY

In the 1980s, God touched the hearts of a couple to begin a movement that would lead to the transformation of lives for the greater glory of God.

1982

Peter Tan-Chi began an evangelistic home Bible study in the Brookside Subdivision, Cainta. Only three couples attended that first bible study in the home of Ike and Del Punsalang, but as they began to invite their friends, the Bible study grew. Eventualy, the Bible study moved to San Juan, meeting in the garage of Loreto Carbonel.

A core group of 40 people – businessmen, professionals, and their families – emerged from these Bible studies. This core group met at the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) for their first Sunday worship service as Christ’s Commission Fellowship.


1987 - 1988

The continuous growth of CCF moved the worship service from AIM to the Greenbelt Theater. Later, in 1988, services were moved to the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) Mini-Theater then to the 4,500-seat Plenary Hall.

Sunday worship services were moved to the Valle Verde Country Club in Pasig. With the number of worshippers from the south of Metro Manila growing, CCF decided to form a separate congregation in Parañaque. Thus, the first satellite church, CCF Sucat, was established. It later moved from Parañaque to Sucat Road in 1994.

2014 - Present

Today, by God’s grace, CCF is a thriving church of over 60 satellites here in the Philippines and abroad. It is a unique fellowship composed and led by lay men and women, all of whom still share God’s love and the Gospel in the style of the first century Christians: in small groups, in their homes, communities and workplaces. It is an indigenous church which operates without foreign affiliation or financial assistance.
