Get To Know Our Church

Our Story

The Church of the Living God (CLG) is a Foursquare Church with a simple goal – to help people connect with God that they may reach their full potential. Its missional purpose is inspired by a God-given dream to enjoin the body of Christ to fulfill the Great Commission. We invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is simple, and people are free to seek God with passion.  

CLG was first an outreach of the Filipino Christian Fellowship (FCF) in the early 1990s. The influx of converts and the continued growth that followed led the outreach to move to more spacious meeting places in Ryde, Parramatta and Dundas area. It was chartered as a Foursquare Church on 8th February 1998. The founding pastors, Pastors Frank and Josie Yap, now Pastors Emeritus, retired from the ministry in July 2012. On 8th July 2012, Ps Imelda Mesa, an ordained minister of the Foursquare Church Australia, with husband Allan Mesa, assumed the senior leadership of the church.  

In 2016, CLG planted a church in Manila. The future looks so good. We see a church that exalts nothing but the wonderful deeds of the Living God, with signs and wonders happening in the life of those who trust and believe the God of the living.

But like all God’s plans, the best is yet to come, and we would like to invite you to come along, join your faith with ours and be a part of what God is doing through the Church of the Living God! We are excited to see the hand of God perform in your life those which are humanly impossible.
