To make disciples of Jesus Christ by sharing His good news with all people, especially with those of Chinese descent, and helping them grow as followers of Christ, so that together we will bear witness of His glory in Austin, in the surrounding areas, and to the ends of the earth.
Dear ACC Family,
ACC's leadership is aware of Governor Abbott's April 27th order (Executive Order GA18) and its effect to relax the shelter in place for churches. As of now, Austin Chinese Church will continue to stream all services online, as the governor still urges churches to conduct as many activities as possible remotely. Please note that our church campus is still closed for all ministries. We ask that you keep the church leaders in your prayers as they discern what the next steps will be. Please stay tuned for more updates.
By His grace,
Austin Chinese Church Elder Board
How To Thrive, Not Just Survive
Thrive: Living By Faith, Not In Fear
Hebrews 11: 32-40, Hebrews 12: 1-2
As we wrap up this sermon series that challenges us to thrive and live by faith, the question may be, "So, how does this apply to me?" For some of you, the real question in your heart is, "HOW am I supposed to thrive as God is calling me to do? Is it even possible?" The key is to keep your eyes looking in the right direction.

The Big Story: Exploring God's Global Purpose
How do the different books of the Bible connect to each other? Is there a grand theme through all of Scripture? Join us as we discover the global thread interwoven throughout the Old and New Testaments. We will peer through different lenses to see God's global purpose and the role we can play in His story.
Emotionally Healthy Spirituality
What role does emotional health play in spiritual maturity? How should we understand ourselves as emotional beings, created in the image of a God who has emotions? We picture the ideal Christian having a peaceful spirit, godly confidence, and loving relationships, but we ourselves may experience anxiety, sadness, insecurity, and anger. In this class we will examine biblical principles and truths that can guide us into lasting, beneath-the surface transformation.
Into the Promised Land
We will continue our journey through the Scriptures, specifically the books of Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, and Ruth. We will learn how God guides His people, gives them a home, and delivers them. Let's explore together some exciting Biblical narratives, marvel at God's faithfulness to His promises, and respond to His Word in faith and obedience.
