自1990年教会成立以来，我们一直靠租用或借用他人设施和教堂聚会，先后在Boulder Southern Hill Baptist Church 和Boulder Corner Stone Baptist Church (1990-2003), Boulder Bethany Church (2003-2011), East Boulder Baptist Church (2011-2012)聚会。感谢神的带领和供应，以及现会友、前会友、兄弟教会、朋友们的热心奉献，我们于2011年10月30日签约购买原Boulder Rural Fire Station建筑，历史上第一次拥有了自己的教堂。第一期改造工程完成后，我们于2012年5月13日搬入我们属灵的家。为了适应教会不断成熟和成长的需要，从2013年开始我们开始筹划第二期改造工程，把原来的车库改造成一个2000平方英尺的敬拜堂和1000平方英尺的大厅和教室。经过一年的筹备，建筑方案设计、挑选承包商、申请建筑许可证、筹款，然后开工兴建。感谢神一路保守与我们同在，整个工程于2015年3月中旬完成，于3月13日第一次投入使用在春季布道会上，3月15日第一次使用在主日崇拜上。
回想整个建堂过程，我们无比感动，心中充满感恩。若不是神与我们同在，我们岂能成就这又大又难的工作，诗 127:1“若不是耶和华建造房屋，建造的人就枉然劳力；若不是耶和华看守城池，看守的人就枉然警醒”。感谢神赐给我们这美好的应许之地，并给我们刚强壮胆的心，正如申31：7-8“摩西召了约书亚来、在以色列众人眼前对他说、你当刚强壮胆、因为你要和这百姓一同进入耶和华向他们列祖起誓应许所赐之地、你也要使他们承受那地为业。耶和华必在你前面行、他必与你同在、必不撇下你、也不丢弃你、不要惧怕、也不要惊惶”,该2:4 “耶和华说，所罗巴伯阿，虽然如此，你当刚强。约撒答的儿子大祭司约书亚阿，你也当刚强。这地的百姓，你们都当刚强做工，因为我与你们同在。这是万军之耶和华说的”。如果你想了解我们二期建堂的具体情况，请访问我们的网站 www.boulderchinesebaptist.org。

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ
Boulder Chinese Baptist Church (BCBC) resides in Boulder in the picturesque State of Colorado, serving primarily the Chinese communities in its vicinity. Our vision is to build a church to the glory of God and the benefit of the people through team ministry and in accordance with the teachings of the Bible. Our mission is to make unbelievers become believers and believers passionate disciples of Jesus Christ.
From its inception in 1990, we had been renting or borrowing facilities or space from other churches or organizations for our congregation. Facilities we have used include Boulder Southern Hill Baptist Church & Boulder Cornerstone Baptist Church (1990-2003), Boulder Bethany Church (2003-2011), and East Boulder Baptist Church (2011-2012). Thanks to the generous offerings from our current and former members, sister churches and friends, we were able to sign a contract on October 30, 2011 for the purchase of a building that used to be the Boulder Rural Fire Station. Glory to God for His guidance and abundance of blessings! For the first time in our history we became the owner of our own church. Upon completion of phase 1 of its remodeling, we lost no time moving into our new spiritual home on May 13, 2012. To meet the growing needs of our church as we matured, we started planning for the second phase of the remodeling in 2013, which consists of converting the former fire engine garage into a worship hall of 2000 SF, and a hallway plus a classroom of 1000SF. An entire year was devoted to the myriad of tasks involved including preparation, architectural design, contractor selection, application for the construction permit, fund raising and of course, the actual construction, to name just a few. Thanks to God for his constant protection and presence, the entire project came to completion in Mid-March 2015 and the hall was used for the first time on March 13 of this year for our Spring Evangelistic Meeting. On March 15, it was used for the first time for our worship.
Looking back on the history of our church building effort, we can’t help but feel touched in every aspect of it. We are all filled with the sense of gratitude for Him, whose presence alone has made it possible for us to complete such a daunting task. “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain (Psalm 127:1).” We thank the Lord for preparing this beautiful land of promise for us and for the great courage He gave us. As is said in Deuteronomy 31:7-8, “And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou must go with this people unto the land which the Lord hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it. And the Lord, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.” Again the Bible says in Hagai 2:40 “Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the Lord; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the Lord, and work: for I am with you, saith the Lord of hosts.”

It is a pleasure and an honor for us, all members of the BCBC congregation, all members of the Deacon Board and all members of the Church Construction Committee, to extend our very sincere and heartfelt welcome to you to join us for celebration. Let’s come together to praise Him and sing His Glory. May His will be done in earth as it is in heaven and may His Gospel spread to every corner of the world.
