In Chinese,「 BMCF 」(literally "Christ's Grace", pronounced "Gay yun") has the double
meaning of Christ's grace as well as Christ's grace towards "gays".
How we started
BMCF is a fellowship initiated by a number of HK gay Christians. Instituted in
July 1992, it evolved from the religious group of the "Hong Kong Ten Percent
Club". In June 1996, BMCF is registered (under the HK Police Force) as a
"not-profit" statutory body in HKSAR. The group is fully supported
finanically by freewill offerings of the participants. Upon its inception, the meetings were
in the format of monthly fellowship at rented venues, with approximately 35
participants. As BMCF developed, the attendance exceeded 100 at monthly
fellowship meetings. When a more permanent venue was secured in October 1997,
an assortment of meetings started.
At present, there are
approximately 80 participants during the weekly worship services. BMCF also conducts
choir practice, fellowship, recovery group, as well as irregular events such as
study group for new Christians, bible study, retreat, evangelistic meeting,
evangelistic camps, catering to the spiritual need of the participants.
BMCF also accepts interviews from different churches
and educational institutes, with an aim to facilitate society's understanding of
To accomodate the growth of BMCF, the meeting place had been moved to
a larger venue at Sheung Wan in both 2001 and 2005.
To the church, GLBT organizations and the society at large, we strive to
bear witness of Jesus Christ's grace upon people of different sexual
GLBT Christians, we strive to reconcile their faith with their sexual
identity and orientation, and to faciliate greater self-acceptance.

BMCF subscribes to the Apostles' Creed to declare its faith:
I believe in God,
the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus
Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third
day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand
of the Father,
and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.
believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
life everlasting. AMEN.
