Ps Harold Clarke went home to be with the Lord in February 1977. He and his wife, Ps Ann Clarke, were FMB missionaries who founded Emmanuel Baptist Church in the early days. Through his ministry with young students from Kuching, the church started its course officially in the year 1975.
Ps Cheng went home to be with the Lord, on the 17th of March 2020. He had faithfully served EBC for the past 21 years as our worship pastor and associate pastor. He will be fondly remembered for his worshipful voice and encouraging spirit. Through his love for worship, he had also raised many worship leaders and stirred up many young people to serve Him through the worship ministry. Ps Cheng had written many songs which are now precious legacies to be sung for generations.
He has given me a new song to sing,
a hymn of praise to our God,
Many will see what He has done and be amazed
They will put their trust in the LORD.
A particular song, "Over All" written by our late Ps Cheng, reminds us to put our trust and our eyes on the Lord. We will always remember this song that has brought encouragement to us as a church.
Indeed, God is the ruler over all our circumstances and situations in life.
