Who We Are

The Congregation of the Good Shepherd is an active spiritual community for expatriate Christians in Beijing, China. We affirm a common faith as set out in the Holy Scriptures and summarized in the historic creeds of the Church and within that unity celebrate a rich tapestry of Christian traditions. The Congregation is an inclusive community that celebrates the spiritual gifts of all, regardless of denominational background, gender, language, or national background.  We aim to live in God’s grace through Christ-centered liturgical worship, compassionate service to the broader community, study of the Scriptures, congregational care, and fellowship with one another. We pray that we shall be a “house of prayer for all peoples” (Isaiah 56:7), and that we may be one in Christ Jesus and servants of all.

What We Believe

We are a diverse Christian worshiping community rooted in the Christian faith as found in the Holy Scriptures and summarized in the historic creeds.  We use the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Chalcedonian Creed as statements of our core Christian beliefs.
