Welcome to the Chinese Baptist Church of Central Orange County's website. Explore our site, we have something for everyone. We are located in the beautiful city of Irvine, in the community of Northwood. We look forward to your visit with us soon.

Sunday Worship Services
Come visit and worship with us every Sunday. We have a Mandarin Worship at 9:30 a.m., Agape Christian Worship - English Worship at 9:30 a.m., Cantonese / English Worship at 10:45 a.m., Haven Youth Worship at 9:30 a.m., and Children Worship at 10:45 a.m.
The Cantonese speaking is our largest ministry. We presently have around 200 adults that attend our Cantonese with English translation worship service and fellowship with us during the week. Fellowships for our Cantonese brothers and sisters range from Young Adults to Seniors. We also have various Cantonese men and women fellowship groups.
After moving into our own Irvine facility in May 2000, we came to realize that many Mandarin-speaking families live in the immediate neighborhood. In January 2001, we started a Mandarin Ministry with the support of lay brothers and sisters. Currently, we have about 132 adults in our Mandarin Ministry, which conducts worship services and sponsors fellowships in Mandarin.
Agape Christian Worship (ACW) was established in early 2002, led by Assistant Pastor Darryl Fong, to meet the needs of an English-speaking ministry. ACW’s goals are to be a loving community and live God’s truth in a contemporary and culturally relevant way. Pastor Darryl also oversees our English-speaking adult fellowships that include those that are college students, single, married, and married with children. Presently, we have about 70 adults in our English Ministry.
Young Adults and Collegians Ministry
FirstFruits is a ministry for young adults and college students that strives to grow in Christ together. It is led by Minister Mark Kwong, a Master of Divinity graduate from Fuller Theological Seminary. We are a community that is passionate about making the name of Jesus known among our families, friends, workplaces, schools, and cities. Every week we have gatherings that provide both fellowship and service opportunities. Come join us on our journey of living out God’s word!
Our meeting time is now Thursdays at 7 pm
Haven Youth Ministry - At Haven Youth, we believe that all kinds of people belong in God's family. We exist to help middle school and high school students explore the intersection of culture, identity, and Jesus. Our ministry is coordinated by Pastor Elliott Siu, who has a Masters of Divinity, Masters in Counseling, and a passion for those who have been overlooked and marginalized in traditional church settings. Find a safe haven and discover God's purpose for you.
CBCKidz exists to develop disciples of Christ that are connected leaders through growing in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man. We offer a full discipleship program from growing in favor with God through Worship to growing in wisdom through learning God's Word in Sunday School, and to grow in favor with man by practicing loving one another in Fellowship. All these programs are conducted at developmentally appropriate levels from preschool (3 year olds) to 6th graders. Wanting to equip the next generation, we also offer Kidlead Christian Leadership training, Bible Drill, and many seasonal special events. Come and join in the fun and fellowship!
The Music Ministry of Chinese Baptist Church of Central Orange County is to glorify God through music. We believe that the music we sing, as an expression of our faith, is both a gift from and an offering to God. We dedicate the gift of music to lead and inspire worship in the Sunday worship services. Our choirs, worship teams and orchestra present diverse opportunities for members of the congregation to experience and participate in various music programs.
