A Disciple-Making Multi-Cultural Church That Champions For Jesus In the Marketplace
What We Value
Our culture is built upon 3 core values: Spiritual Maturity, People and a Healthy Community. We value a life process that builds our spiritual character in God and deepens our relationship with Him. We value people as individuals and each of their journey in God. Our faith journey is only strengthened and edified when we are in a company of Godfearing people. Therefore, buidling a healthy community is one of our core values. We believe it is essential to teach God’s community to anchor itself in the right values and principles in order to be a wholesome and radiant House that exists for His glory!
Radiant Church was birthed out from prayers of a small group of passionate people who were desperate to seek the heart of God. Through many days and nights of prayer and after receiving spiritual visions and prophetic words for the church, with a team of dedicated people, Ps Joshua and Jules Teo finally witnessed the birth of Radiant Church in October 2011! All glory to God!
It was a fulfillment of what God had spoken to us in our prayer from Isaiah 66:9, “the Lord is the one who makes birth possible.” Indeed, in every step of the way, it has been so evident that God is the master builder and architect of this church.
The very motive to plant this church was to see the church becoming the true bride of Christ where “authentic faith” is the norm, prayer becomes a lifestyle and evangelism, an outburst of everyone’s Spirit-filled life! It will be a place of hope, joy and love where everyone will radiate the glory of God to the world and champion the marketplaces for Christ!

“What We Do”
It was inspired by Isaiah 61:1-3, our MISSION is to live out the “REDEEMED” life in Jesus Christ by:
RE-storing the brokenhearted and the oppressed (EVANGELISM, GOSPEL-SHARING) “He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners..” (v.1)
DE-voting our lives to proclaim the Kingdom causes (SERVICE, MISSION) “..to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor..” (v.2)
EM-powering people to fulfill their God-given destiny and calling (SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE) “…to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.” (v.3a)
ED-ucating people to enjoy and exemplify the love of Jesus Christ (DISCIPLESHIP, EQUIPPING, TRAINING) “They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendour.” (v.3b)
“The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, 2 to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, 3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendour.” (Isaiah 61:1-3)
