目的

他(耶稣)又设个比喻对他们说,天国好像一粒芥 菜种,有人拿去种在田里。这原是百种里最小的。 等到长起来,却比各样的菜都大,且成了树。天上的飞鸟来宿在它的枝上。
— 太13:31-32

(耶稣说)我是葡萄树,你们是枝子。常在我里面的,我也常在他里面,这人就多结果子。因为离了我,你们就不能作什么。
— 约15:5

森浸秉承立会初衷,在以英语为主流的新加坡社会,成为一间华语教会。森浸坚守基督教教义,并积极广传真道。

宗旨

为秉持立会目的,循教会章程定下以下四项宗旨:

  1. 传扬耶稣基督的福音
  2. 敬拜和事奉三一真神
  3. 服事信徒和社区
  4. 传讲神在圣经里所启示的真理

为何要有标志?

森浸自1950年代成立至今,未设有任何代表性标 志。趁这55周年,我们特设标志为森浸带入更新气息与热忱。这新标志将出现于教会建筑物、各类刊物、资讯于网页上,作为特殊身份的识别。


我们的标志

SBC New Logo

从「 森 」这个字,我们一笔一画的来解说:

  • 颜色
    标志的基本颜色是褐色,正是太13:31-32及约15:5 所提到的树枝的颜色。
  • 「森 」

    • 十字架
      「 森 」字里的十架,提醒我们要作一间以基督为主的教会。
    • 树枝
      「 森 」字也代表长出枝子。意表教会的宗旨是传扬福音和社区服事。更盼望教会能增长和如约15:5所提的多结果子。

    • 「 森 」字里包含了三个「 木」,意味一群 各方各业的人士齐聚团契,并同心全意敬拜独一全能的神。
  • 字体
    「 森 」字里以中文书法写的「 十 」,意表森浸以 中华文化为本。「 森 」字里的其他楷书笔画,寓意 森浸与时并进。「 森 」字参杂不同的书写法,表示森浸深植于中华文化的同时,与时并进。

PURPOSE

He (Jesus) told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches.”
— Matt 13:31-32

(Jesus said) I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
— John 15:5

Sembawang Baptist Church is established as a Chinese church in Singapore where the English language is predominant. We seek to get our fundamentals right – focus on the teachings of Christianity and to spread the Gospel.

AIMS

Keeping in line with our Constitution, we designed the SBC logo with the following in mind:

  1. To proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ
  2. To worship and serve the Trinity God
  3. To minister to Christians and the community at large
  4. To preach the truth of God as revealed in the Bible

WHY DESIGN?

SBC has not had a proper church logo since she was founded in the late 1950s. Now is a good time to inject a little fresh air into the logo and the overall identity of SBC. This will result in a distinct and recognisable identity across our church facade, printed matter and online presence.

OUR LOGO

SBC New Logo

By deconstructing the character「 森 」, we examine each part in detail:

  • COLOUR
    Brown is the primary color of the logo because it is the colour of a tree and its branches, which matches what is mentioned in Matt 13:31-32 and John 15:5.
  • SYMBOLISM
    • Cross
      「 森 」brings out the symbol of the Cross — it serves as a reminder for us to be a Christ-centered church.
    • Branch
      「 森 」stands for “branching out”. This matches the aims of the church to proclaim the Gospel and minister to the community at large. It is also with hope that we will grow and bear much fruits in Christ according to John 15:5.
    • People
      「 森 」is the combination of three「 木 」, and that symbolises the gathering of different people from different walks of life for fellowship, and to worship the One almighty God wholeheartedly.
  • TYPEFACE
    The Chinese calligraphic brush stroke on the cross symbolises our Chinese cultural roots. The remainder of 「 森 」is set in kaishu (楷书) which represents us in modern times. This mixture of influences in the logo「 森 」hence shows that SBC is adaptive and relevant in this modern age whilst maintaining deep ties with our Chinese culture.
