Blog du pasteur (in English)

Rev. John LIM was born in a Buddhist family in Singapore. He received Jesus as his personal Savior on 24 Dec 1989 and was born again. He was baptised in water in June 1991.

He answered God’s call to the ministry in 1992 after his national service term and enrolled into AGBC – assemblies of God Bible college (then BIS). He was involved principally in missions from 1993-95 in Elim Christian Centre, Bacolod city, Philippines.
He was then sent to Accra, Ghana from 1998-2004 to assist a local pioneering work in the Ghanian TWI community.
He then went on to start the first Chinese church in Ghana in 2001, and assisted in the start of an international church as well.

He is happily married to Rebecca Lim-Koh, who was involved with the church planting effort in Ghana.

John and Rebecca are presently pastoring Elim Evangelical Church in Paris, in the heart of Chinatown Paris. They are reaching a cross-cultural community of French, mandarin and English speakers.

John is also the first Chinese chaplain in the French prison system, and helps the prisoners in their spiritual needs, as well as translation and administration needs in France.

John has a bachelor’s degree in theology in 1997 from AGBC Singapore, a national chaplaincy degree (DU.VEA) with CFTP (University of Strasbourg) and continues his theological studies with FLTE at Vaux sur Seine for a master’s degree in religious education.

Rebecca LIM-KOH pastors and cares for the women’s group in the church and oversees the children’s program as well. Rebecca has undergone mission training in the school of Actes in KL,Malaysia and has done theological studies in Institute Biblique de Nogent sur Marne (IBN).

Beyond church involvement, John and Rebecca are also actively assisting and helping ex-prisoners and migrant families in dire situations by providing legal counsel and translation aid, as well as physical and psychological care when needed, through their association network.

John and Rebecca’s vision is to see God’s church established in France, à family without boundaries for all nations in Paris, to see a multi-ethnic, multi-generational church that will seek first the Kingdom of God for the glory of Jesus Christ, about whom it is written:

“With your blood you purchased for God members of every tribe and language and people and nation.”
