PASTOR ALAN FONG
Alan Fong was saved in 1971 out of a Roman Catholic background. Although not having been formally trained, he had been trained in most aspects of the local church having served in multiple ministry capacities and was often a “fill in” preacher while serving as a layman. In addition, he has been privileged of having been under the mentorship of several strong independent fundamental Baptist pastors.
Pastor Fong was among the core membership that helped in the planting of Heritage Baptist Church in January 1999. After the founding pastor had announced his desire to return overseas as a missionary, the church ultimately called Pastor Fong in November 2004 as its senior pastor.
The church is located in the heart of the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Area, and has been blessed with three acres of beautiful property consisting of 22,000 square feet of building space, with plans to add another 40,000 square feet of space in the ensuing years.
The church has multiple weekly services with several hundred people in attendance. The services of the church may be characterized as friendly with inspiring music, and strong, convicting messages from the word of God.
The heartbeat of Pastor Fong’s ministry is a consuming passion to reach the people of the Bay Area with the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to pastor his congregation. He loves his church, and strives to inspire his church to love the Lord, serve others, and to impact the world.
The church is uniquely serving every age group with vibrant ministries for adults, college students, teenagers, children, a Chinese speaking ministry and Spanish translation.
Under Pastor Fong’s leadership the church has experienced strong and consistent growth in all facets of the ministry. The church is being strategically prepared for its next level of growth which includes the planting of churches throughout the Bay Area, the training of the next generation of leaders for ministry and overseas missions, and the saturation of the Bay Area with the gospel message.
Pastor Fong has been married to his wife of 28 years, Grace, and they have two daughters who are actively serving in the church, and one son. His son is preparing for ministry at West Coast Baptist College.
Pastor Fong currently serves on the cooperating board of the Sword of the Lord, and is an advisory member to West Coast Baptist College.
