Founded in 1966 as a family Bible study group, the Lynchburg Chinese Christian Fellowship (LCCF) began meeting at Beulah Baptist Church in 1994. The Fellowship provides opportunities for worship in the Chinese language (Mandarin), as well as outreach and fellowship for members of the local Chinese community from all walks of life.
The prayer of the LCCF is threefold: to glorify God in all of its activities, to bring people to accept Christ as their personal Savior through evangelism, and to equip believers for growth and service to God.
The LCCF gathers for Sunday school and a worship service each Sunday morning. Prayer meetings are held on Wednesday nights, and on Friday nights, there is a fellowship with a meal, followed by a time of song service and Bible study.
In addition to these weekly activities, the LCCF invites an out-of-state guest speaker on a quarterly basis. The LCCF also takes part in the annual Chinese Christian conference held each Memorial Day weekend at Eagle Eyrie. This major event has drawn approximately 600-800 attendees from the Mid-Atlantic states for the past three decades. New believers are baptized by the pastor of Beulah Baptist Church, Dr. Maurice McCarthy, Jr.
Dr. Esther Wu states, "We are grateful for the generosity and loving support of our brothers and sisters at Beulah Baptist Church who are carrying out the Great Commission even within its own walls by opening its doors and their hearts to the Chinese people in Lynchburg to worship our Lord."
