The Lutheran Church Hong Kong Synod


  • In the present time, the major works the Hong Kong Government do on the poverty issue are providing the minimal safety net. Although the tangible deficiencies may be satisfied under the net, the more deeper, internal and spiritual needs are always neglected.

2. However, Jesus taught us to let “the poor have the good news given to them” (Matthew, 11:5). Thus, to serve the poor is not only one of the important missions of the church, or to follow Jesus Christ’s teachings; but also we take such actions to manifest the love of God and demonstrate God’s love to humans. People can feel and touch the God through our work on them.

3.The Lutheran Church Hong Kong Synod is planned to organize a project called “Serve the Least” in the coming mission of “ABLAZE”. By the project, we will provide direct services and missionary works on the family of poor through the cooperation of different sectors of the Synod, including the churches, the social service units and the schools.
