The beginnings of the Damansara Reformed Baptist Church

The Reformed Baptist Churches in Malaysia have their beginnings in 1982 when Dr Poh Boon Sing and his wife Goody returned from Liverpool, UK, with the aim of planting Reformed Baptist churches in Malaysia. From the first Reformed Baptist church in Serdang, a fellowship began to gather in Sri Hartamas for Bible studies and as a preaching point since 1986. In 1991, Pastor Poh relinquished his pastoral charge of the Serdang church to oversee the congregation at Sri Hartamas. In 1998 a corner terrace house became available in Damansara Utama and was purchased. On 9 September 1999, the church began meeting in the new premises and became known as Damansara Church (Reformed Baptist), later changed to Damansara Reformed Baptist Church. Around the same time, Pastor Poh and family moved from Serdang to live in Damansara, where he remains as the pastor of the church until now.

Over the years, God has mercifully preserved and used the Damansara Reformed Baptist Church congregation despite many difficulties and setbacks.

To this day, the church continues to proclaim God's Word and the truths of the Reformation, as well as engaging in local outreach and planting churches at home and abroad. As we look to the future, we desire to remain steadfast in the Word of God, embodying the spirit of "semper reformanda" (always being reformed) while retaining missions-mindedness and spiritual vitality.

A mighty fortress is our God...
