THE UNDERSTANDING OF INFANT BAPTISM IN THE REFORMED TRADITION

As a Presbyterian Church that is part of the Reformed tradition, PSPC conducts infant baptisms as an expression of our beliefs in the infants’ distinctive relationship to Christ in terms of (1) the unity and continuity of the covenant, (2) election and the sovereign grace of God and (3) Christ’s attitudes toward infants and children.

 

The Unity and Continuity of the Covenant

 

PSPC PASTORAL TEAM REPORT

This report was presented by Rev Darryl Chan at the ACM on 8 April 2017.

It contains key manpower updates and projection as well as an appeal for the congregation to remain united, strong and courageous to fulfill God’s kingdom purposes.

 

REFLECTIONS

 The sermon by Rev Darryl Chan on PSPC’s 173rd Anniversary Service last Sunday

was a follow-up to a more extensive analysis on what PSPC needs to address as a leadership and congregation.  This pastoral letter is a summary of that analysis.

 

 

PSPC’S RESPONSE TO THE PINK DOT MOVEMENT

It has always been my burden as Senior Pastor for PSPC to continue to uphold the biblical vision of marriage and family.  That is why in PSPC’s long-term vision, one of the ‘P’s in PSPC stands for Parenting and Marriage.  To that end, the Family Life Ministry was launched this year in tandem with our church theme of “Christ-centred Relationships, Godly Families.”  With the coming of the annual Pink Dot movement on 4 June, it is a reminder to the Christian community in Singapore that there are societal and cultural forces that threaten to erode the institution of marriage and family

Trust And Obey (John H Sammis, 1846 - 1919)

But Samuel replied, “Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the Lord?”  To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.”                                                                                              (1 Samuel 15:22)

 

REFLECTIONS

The late Eld Koh Eng Soo was called home to be with the Lord on 16 October 2014 at the age of 75 years old.  As I was thinking about what to write for this Sunday’s bulletin reflection, I thought I will share the sermon which I had preached at the funeral – as a tribute to the late Eld Koh as well as an encouragement for all of us.

CROSSING CULTURES, BREAKING BARRIERS

A month ago, our family attended my cousin’s wedding banquet.  Since we were in town and it was the school holidays, we thought that we should take the opportunity to bring our girls on an outing after the banquet.  So we ended up at the National Museum.  Now, the last time that my wife Angie and I went to the National Museum was eons ago – even though PSPC is just a stone’s throw away!  At the National Museum, we found out that there was an exhibition entitled “Genesis” by world-renown photographer Sebastiao Salgado.  This exhibition showcased 245 black and white photographic works taken a
