Seth S. Kim : Transforming Lives & Transforming the World.

Forever Family

  It is interesting how the Apostle Paul uses the illustration of adoption when he describes our relationship with God, our Father (Eph 1:3-14). There is something very powerful about knowing that you are chosen and loved unconditionally. This is part of the core of the Gospel message. Sometimes through an earthly adoption, people are able to know the love of the Father. May our love for people overflow.

Superheroes + Kids = Win

  I realized that it doesn’t take much to see a child laugh or smile . It brings great joy to anyone who see the sense of wonder in a child’s eyes. This is why when people are willing to go out of their way to make kids happy, it makes me smile. I pray that we will never lose the sense of wonder and amazement as we get older. God smiles when He see...

Like A Girl

  After having a daughter, I have become more sensitive and tuned into how girls are treated in our society, especially in the Church. It is amazing to see how a girl’s self-esteem is shaped by their relationship with their father. It is my hope and prayer that Karissa (a.k.a. KiKi) will grow up believing that she can do anything she puts her mind to. The world will tell her otherwise. The world will put...

Gloriously Ruined

  I do quite a bit of counseling throughout the week. I guess it comes with the calling of a shepherd (pastor). After many hours of listening and talking, I have come to the realization that a lot of things come down to perspective. If a person is able to gain God’s perspective in the midst of their situation, then it’s a huge win – both for the counselee and the counselor. It is hard...

The Soccer Warrior

  It is always exciting to see two of my passions come together. The heart of a samurai and the heart for soccer. I cannot wait for the World Cup to start!

The Father’s Protection

  When you see a father so passionate about protecting his daughter, it reminds you of how love and security play an important role in a relationship. As I watched this video, I couldn’t help but to resonate with this father as I thought about my daughter. Then, I thought about God’s love and protection for His children against Satan and his evil forces. No matter what we are facing in life, we can be...

The Greatest Artist

  God is the Greatest Artist of all time. We, as human are able to create beautiful things because the Creator created us. Whenever I get inspired by a musician or an artist with their talent, I am reminded that they are just a reflection of the Greatest Artist. Therefore, keep on creating great music, art and other creative pieces because it will keep on pointing to the One who alone deserves all the glory!...

Withholding Nothing

  I am constantly reminded that in order to experience true freedom, we have to let go of everything; but it is always easier said than done. Living a life of complete surrender to Christ is hard. We love ourselves too much, even to the point of being narcissist and full of pride. The times when I have been able to fully let go of things and “withhold nothing” from Christ is when I saw...

The Hearts of Men

  Coming back from my recent trip to Cambodia, I was reminded once again about the evils of human slavery. As I looked at the issue, I couldn’t help but to conclude that everything starts from the heart. Since we live in a broken world, we try so hard to “fix” ourselves from the pain and hurt in our lives. This is where many of us turn to various things to numb our pain; but...

World Shakers. History Makers.

        I remember when our kids were younger and they all went to the same school. It was so much easier driving them to one location; but now, they all go to different schools. I miss those younger years when we were all together in one car. Everyday, as we got closer to school, I had one of them pray on behalf of all of us. Of course, we rotated the person...

Winter Baptism 2013

        We made history at our 2013 Winter Baptism. It was our first time having the baptism at our Transformation Center. Secondly, we had the most people being baptized at one time in the history of our church. I am constantly amazed at God’s transformative work of calling us His own and by bringing us from darkness to His marvelous light (1 Pe 2:9). I have the privilege of being an eyewitness...

HMCC-HK Call-Out Meeting

  Design by HMCC-AA Publications Team       It has been almost four weeks since the official announcement of starting HMCC of Hong Kong in 2015. There has been a great response. I’m encouraged and excited to see the 2020 Vision become a reality. I am looking forward to this call-out meeting because I believe God is stirring some of us to respond in faith and to be a part of this future church...

Mirror Series

  Design by HMCC-AA Publications Team       For our college ministry, we are finishing off our 2-part series called, “Mirror.” In Part 1, we covered the theme of “The Looking Glass.” I mentioned how, “we must see ourselves through the mirror of God’s grace.” It is God’s grace that fulfills us, frees us, and forms us. Today we are going to go over the topic of “The Rearview Mirror” and how important it...

A Big God. A Big Announcement

        Here is the text of the video:   Hi church, I hope all of you are doing well. It’s hard to believe that everything got started right here in Ann Arbor back in 1996. God has been transforming lives and transforming the world since then. From that point on we have seen churches planted in Chicago, Austin, Jakarta, and Singapore. The reason why I wanted to take this time to share...
