History[edit]

In 1982, Pastor Peter Tan-Chi, began an evangelistic home Bible study in Brookside Subdivision, Cainta, Rizal. Only three couples attended that first Bible study, but as they began to invite their friends, who then invited their own friends and families, the Bible study grew and moved to San Juan City. Two years later, A core group of 40 people (businessmen, professionals, and their families) emerged from these Bible studies. Later on, they met at the Asian Institute of Management for their first Sunday worship service and launched "Christ’s Commission Foundation" in August 1984.

Since then, CCF’s continuous growth has caused its worship services to move from place to place. From AIM, services moved to Greenbelt in Makati City, then to the Conference Room of the Philippine International Convention Center, and then to the PICC Plenary Hall. Worshippers then split in order to attend at two different venues, one in CCF Sucat, and one at the Valle Verde Country Club.

In 1997, CCF's worship services transferred to St. Francis Square in Ortigas Center. Today, it is now thriving church of approximately 75,000 members and considered as one of the fastest-growing Evangelical churches in the country.[1]
