Chinese Christian Mission (CCM) consists of a group of dedicated Chinese Christians.
We follow the Lord Jesus Christ' command to reach the world with the gospel, through
literature, broadcasting, and sending missionaries. Jesus Christ is our Commander
in Chief and we stress to work with churches and Christians of same burden to bring
the gospel to all nations.
During his early years of itinerary evangelistic ministry in Europe, CCM founder
Rev. Thomas Wang received this vision from the Lord, "You will serve your kinsmen
with a fervent heart. He consequently came to the U. S. to study in a seminary in
1958. After graduation in 1961, he rented a garage in Detroit, Michigan for twenty
five dollars a month to started a four-man prayer meeting. God gave them the vision
to spread the gospel by publishing litearture. In October, 1961 Rev. Wang established
the Chinese Christian Mission, a inter-denominational organization.
Rev. Wang spent several weeks in a print shop to learn the trade of printing. Working
with an used press donated by brothers and sisters, he labored three days and nights
to publish the first issue of Chinese Christians Today (printed in English
at first). A group of devoted volunteers came on weekends to help with binding and
mailing. The free magazine was very well received, and readership topped four thousand
by the second and third issues. Due to the tremendous needs, Rev. Wang's fiancee
Rachael spent her wedding money, six hundred dollars in all, for an addressing machine.
By popular request of readers since the first English issue of Chinese Christians
Today, CCM quickly changed to publish the Chinese Christian Monthly
in Chinese in March the same year (Picture on right is the first issue). The readership
reached seven thousand, more than half in Hong Kong, in the first year.
As the ministry developed and need of Chinese increased, CCM Taiwan was established in Taipei in November, 1961.
Following, CCM Hong Kong was
established in 1965, then CCM Philippines in 1970, CCM Singapore in 1977,
CCM Canada (Vancouver) in 1981, both
CCM Macau and CCM Australia
in 1993, and CCM New Zeland
After fifty years of serving, CCM has developed into a multi-faceted mission organization
from a humble literature ministry. Our strategy is reaching the Chinese to reach
the world, by sending missionaries to the Chinese to bring them the gospel in their
language, and equip believers to reach the local ethnic groups.
