Our History

Cheras Gospel Centre started as a prayer group in Cheras in 1977 when a group of Christians from Jalan Imbi Chapel (JIC), residing in Cheras, started a prayer group and later, a Sunday School in the area. The work progressed steadily as the years rolled by. Besides the Sunday School and Prayer meetings, Youth meetings, Ladies’ meetings, evangelistic meetings and door-to-door tracting were conducted.

In April 1981, with help from the JIC Project Fund, a shophouse in Taman Biliun was purchased for the assembly to meet in. The first worship meeting and communion service in the new building (a shophouse) was held on January 3, 1982.

Then in the year 2000, the assembly moved to our current premise in Taman Shamelin Perkasa.

This is a brief record of the significant milestones in the history of CGC. We thank GOD for His guidance and provision over the years. Beyond movements and events, GOD is also at work in the lives of people. Some parents of our Sunday School children and youths have come to know the Lord as their personal Saviour. Through the teaching of GOD’s word, lives have been changed. Although our church membership has not increased significantly – presently, about 80+, the Sunday School and Youth meetings are well attended. It is encouraging to note that at least half our membership are actively involved in an area of service. Almost all our members belong to a Home Fellowship Group which was started in 1991 where bible study, prayer and caring for one another are carried out.

Let us remember that “… He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ (Philippians 1:6).” God is at work in us to equip us with everything good for doing His will. Let us commit ourselves to Him afresh that He may work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
