Paul's letter to the Romans says that 'faith comes by hearing'. At the time the Bible was written, it would not have been read, it would have been heard. Families orally passed stories from generation to generation. We believe that listening to the Bible is a powerful way to understand the word of God. Many of our brothers have very little education and might struggle with reading, so in our houses and congregation meetings we listen to the Bible.
Every week we have what we call 'Listening Posts' around the Hong Kong Housing Estates. We bring food, and a handheld audio machine (called a 'Proclaimer') which contains the whole of the Bible in Cantonese. We gather anyone who is there, eat with them and listen to stories of Jesus' miracles. Often people believe in Jesus and are healed instantly as they listen.
