Houston Chinese Church is a community of English, Mandarin, and Cantonese speakers, the majority of which are ethnically Chinese. Each week, close to 900 adults gather for worship in their heart-language at the main campus location and another 100 gather at her Pearland campus. HCC has a rich history of planting churches, bible-based teaching from the pulpit, strong sense of fellowship and community, and a missional heart for the lost.
