What does TCF do?

TCF activities include retreats, conferences, seminars and regional meetings for English and Mandarin-speaking groups, Teachers’ Day celebrations, and sale of SPM Bible Knowledge materials and other resources.

Since 2003, TCF in collaboration with the Singapore Girls’ Brigade and TCF Singapore has also organised the Asian Christian Teachers’ Conference (ACTC). This biennial event, held in Singapore,brings together educators from the Asian region for a time of spiritual renewal and mutual encouragement.

TCF also publishes a quarterly newsletter. Besides providing an avenue for educators to write articles to promote Christian principles and values in education, In Step keeps our members informed of TCF events and helps the organisation to be connected to its members.

Through these various activities, TCF hopes to be a channel of God’s love to different groups of educators, and from them to students, church, society and nation as a whole.

Our Vision

To enable Christian educators in Malaysia to be effective and worthy servants of God in the education of the next generation and to move forward with a greater sense of mission, following in the footsteps of the Master Teacher.
WE ARE TO LIVE A LIFE WORTHY OF OUR CALLING “I urge you to live a live worthy of the calling you have received” (Eph. 4:1)
WE ARE TO HAVE A SENSE OF MISSION “open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” (John 4:35)
As an association of Christian school administrators, teachers and lecturers, we believe that we have a vital contribution to make in the development of our country especially in the ethical and moral sphere.

Doctrinal Belief

The divine inspiration and infallibility of Holy Scriptures as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  • The unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead.
  • The universal sinfulness and guilt, penalty, and power of sin only through the sacrificial death (as representative and substitute) of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God.
  • The Sovereignity of God in creation, providence, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
  • The bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead and His ascension to the right hand of God the Father.
  • The justification of the sinner by the grace of God through faith in Christ alone.
  • The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
  • The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ

The TCF Story

TCF Malaysia was born in 1961 when a group of 40 committed Christian teachers came together to support each other in their witness. Today TCFers continue to encourage each other in prayer, word, and deed.

The Teachers’ Christian Fellowship or TCF exists to help you become the teacher God intended when He drew you into this profession.

As practising teachers ourselves, TCFers understand your uncertainties and frustrations, your joys and challenges.
