About RLC

Our History

Pastors Joshua & Carey Yee

Renewal Lutheran Church (RLC) was founded by Pastors Joshua & Carey Yee in 1988. The first church service was held on the 2nd Floor at a rented premise located at Jalan 222, Petaling Jaya.

In 1991 as the church continued to grow, the RLC moved to Jalan 227. Within 3 years the seating capacity of 350 was filled and a second service was started in 1994. In 1996 God spoke to Pastor Joshua and the Church through various men of God.

RLC’s 2nd building at Jalan 227

Early one morning at 4.00 am God woke Pastor Joshua and gave him the blueprint of the Church of the Tomorrow.  With great excitement Pastor Joshua began sharing the vision to the congregation.  To confirm the vision given to Pastor Joshua, various men of God were sent to confirm the word:

Holy Spirit moving at Jalan 227

I’m giving you large premises for they shall be many storey. Chris Gaborit, April 1996

God says, expand and get another building. God is challenging you, the church to launch out into the deep. Vernon Falls, May 1996

For you shall build for Me a centre of Davidic worship. Joseph Prince, May 1996

God is indeed faithful to His promises! In July 17, 1997 the Church moved into the enlarge borders in obedience to God’s Word to expand to another building. This will be the house in which the RLC family worships till this very day.

Our vision

Isa 8:18
Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are SIGNS and WONDERS in the land, says the LORD Almighty …

Worship Releases WONDERS

Josh 8:30-32
30 Joshua built an altar for the LORD, on Mount Ebal, as 31 Moses, the LORD’s servant, had commanded. Joshua built an altar. It was made from uncut stones; no tool was ever used on them. On that altar they offered burnt offerings to the LORD and fellowship offerings. 32 There Joshua wrote the teachings of Moses on stones for all the people to see. NCV

We believe in worship that is: Christ-centered, Grace-filled ,Word-focused

Overflowing Abundance out of His Grace

Josh 8:33
Half of the people stood in front of Mount Gerizim and half of them in front of Mount Ebal, as Moses the servant of the LORD had formerly commanded when he gave instructions to bless the people. NIV

The blessings we receive are based on God’s grace, through the finished work of Christ:

Jer 33:7-8 
7 I will bring my people back from captivity and will rebuild them as they were before. 8 I will cleanse them from all the sin they have committed against me and will forgive all their sins against me.

New sense of belonging and identity

Eph 2:19
Now you are members of God’s very own family,  … and you belong in God’s household with every other Christian. LB

We are called to belong in a family and not just to believe

Developing movers and shakers from young

Josh 8:35
All the people were gathered together – men, women, and children. Joshua read every command that Moses had given. NCV

Various ministries in RLC (e.g. CHAMPS, Boys’ and Girls’ Brigade, Energized, Ablaze and the Young Adults Gathering) are geared towards developing Godly character, values and relationship skills amongst young people.

Exo 10:8-13
8 Pharaoh said. “But tell me, just whom do you want to take along?” 9 “Young and old, all of us will go,” Moses replied. “We will take our sons and daughters and our flocks and herds. We must all join together in a festival to the LORD.”

Entrepreneur Vision and Missions empowered

Josh 8:33-34
33 Half of the people stood in front of Mount Gerizim and half of them in front of Mount Ebal, as Moses the servant of the LORD had formerly commanded when he gave instructions to bless the people. 34 Then Joshua read all the words of the teachings, the blessings and the curses, exactly as they were written in the Book of the Teachings. NCV

One of our ministry thrust is to empower entrepreneurs in the ways of the Lord

Deut 8:18
“And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. NKJV

Our intercessors partner with entrepreneurs in the marketplace through fervent prayer and intercession.

Joel 3:18 … A fountain shall flow from the house of the Lord and water the Valley of Acacias.

The Valley of the Acacias is right above the Dead Sea and is a place of barrenness.

I sense that in a very real way your church is a fountainhead church and that you are a fountain that will flow with prayer, power and prosperity to the barren places of the world … Being a fountain head as you are, I sense you are going to be renewed in a new powerful sense of prayer. A fountainhead church of prayer, power, prosperity and provision. Joseph Prince – May 1996

We partner with missions locally and around the world

Acts 20:24
The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me – to tell people the Good News about God’s grace. NCV

Restoration that astounds you

Josh 8:2
You shall do to Ai and its king as you did to Jericho and its king, except that you may carry off their plunder and livestock for yourselves. Set an ambush behind the city.” NIV

Joel 2:25  
‘I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten. NIV

Supernatural healing and miracle place

Josh 8:18
Then the Lord said to Joshua, “Hold out toward Ai the javelin that is in your hand, for into your hand I will deliver the city.” So Joshua held out his javelin toward Ai. NIV

The Lord empowers us to be a miracle place through fervent intercession and the preaching of His Words

Psa 107:20
He sent forth his word and healed them;  he rescued them from the grave.
