Asia-Pacific International University is concerned about the spiritual life of the students and the community. The University Church is situated on the highest point of the campus, providing a focus for all spiritual activities, and denoting that religious worship and related activities are given a high priority by the institution. As a Christian institution the University integrates regular religious worship and religious activities into the semester program.
Worship services are held on Friday evening (vespers) and on Saturday mornings at 9:00 am and 10:30 am for students and the campus community. A chapel service is held at 10:00 am each Wednesday during the semester.
In addition to the corporate times of worship described above, Asia-Pacific International University's students are also encouraged to develop a personal religious faith. To encourage such growth, less formal worship services are held in mornings at 7:00 am and in the evenings at 7:00 pm in the dormitories or other arranged venues. Each Wednesday evening at 7:00 pm the campus family groups meet and each Friday at 8:00 pm there is a worship program for the different ethnical groups on campus.
Besides this, prayer bands (small groups) are sometimes arranged spontaneously by motivated students or faculties. Other religious activities are occasionally organized and presented by students, many of whom are gifted in music and drama.
Asia-Pacific International University Seventh-day Adventist Church is committed to joyful corporate worship that glorifies God, nurturing and equipping the congregation to reach out with God's grace to the campus and surrounding communities.
A local church is a community of Christians who worship, fellowship and work together to accomplish God’s purposes.
“The church is God's appointed agency for the salvation of men. It was organized for service, and its mission is to carry the gospel to the world.” – Ellen White
The church is like a family. It is a place of caring and belonging; a place of challenge and growth. Church members are expected to maintain a daily personal connection with God and regular connections with each other. We meet each week for small group Bible study, prayer meetings, and worship. There are also regular outreach activities that give church members opportunities to serve the wider community.
The University Church is one of many local churches throughout the world which are part of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. We are committed to worldwide unity.

Pastor Johnny Wong
|Welcome to the Asia-Pacific International University Seventh-day Adventist Church. We are a diverse family of faith—students, faculty, staff, and members of the community—united by our common love for Jesus Christ. It is my privilege to serve as pastor to this amazing congregation.
We are first and foremost a university church—here to serve the needs of our university family. But our vision also includes reaching out to the wider community—being Christ’s body and doing His work in the world.
Please join us for worship! “O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!” (Psalm 34:8).
Campus Ministries aim to create spiritual environment which encourages faculty and staff and students of Asia-Pacific International University to get to know the Lord Jesus Christ, accept Him as their personal Savior, become mature in their faith, have a sustaining relationship with Him and provide opportunities for them to share Jesus Christ inside and outside the campus through culturally acceptable programs.
