Our church’s history is about “His-story.” Acts Fellowship Church exists because of Jesus Christ and for Jesus Christ. Our story began in the summer of 1992 with the vision of Rev. Samuel Kim to reach out to the second generation Asian-American students on the University of Texas campus. Initially, it began as a department of the Korean Baptist Church of Austin (KBCA). We met in the facilities of the University Baptist Church located near the UT campus. Currently, the church has grown to include children, youth, college, single adults, and married couples from Austin and surrounding areas.
Having been there from the formation of the Acts ministry, Charles Lee became the associate pastor of Acts in January of 1994. Upon graduating from UT and commuting to Austin from Fort Worth for five years while attending seminary, Pastor Charles moved to Austin during the summer of 1999 to become the Senior Pastor of Acts.
In the summer of 1995, Acts moved to the Parker Lane location with KBCA. With much prayer and planning, Acts began the process of becoming an independent church. With the blessings of KBCA, Acts became an autonomous church starting January of 2004. We have incorporated as a nonprofit organization and are now functioning independently from KBCA in every aspect. The official name for the church is “Acts Fellowship Church.”
Starting August of 2005, Acts began to hold services at the Galaxy Highland 10 Theaters with an understanding that we will periodically move to various facilities and locations around Austin for worship until God leads us to a building of our own.
In March of 2006, Acts began holding Sunday worship services at the facilities of Skyview Baptist Church on W. Koenig Lane. Though we do not know where God will take us in future, we are very confident that as long as it is today, God will hold our hands to walk with Him to fulfill His perfect plans.
Needless to say, we are very excited about what God is doing in our midst. We hope and pray that God will continue to work powerfully in our ministry to reach out to a diverse group of unchurched people in the capital city.
